External Modem

  bob's 16:14 20 Jan 2004

I have changed my hard drive and reinstalled the software and now i find my modem is not working even though it is installed properly.It worked for a day and then stopped. I installed the software back on the Pc and maybe that is linked to it. When i try the modem on another computer it works fine.Has something else taken over Com 1 or is there another explanation.How can i check this out.

Uninstall modem software,remove COM1 from device manager, reboot pc with modem connected, windows should pick it up, then install software whem prompted.I had similar problem and this worked for me.
