I have an Evesham (original) computer still running ME! After several "windows protection" errors I re-installed Windows (not a full format and restore though). I manged to reinstall most of my applications but eventually my CD and DVD drives stopped working. I think I was configuring Sound Blaster with an audio CD at the time. If I insert a CD now the screen goes black and I have to reboot - the CD and DVD drives still won't work. In Device Manager there is an yellow exclamation mark on SUP2850 PCI Modem Enumerator under HSFMODEM. There is a "resource conflict -code 15". If I were to remove the dial-up PCI card , which I do not need now would this solve the problem? What is HSFMODEM any way? Can it be physically removed? Thanks in anticipation.
Thanks crosstrainer. Everything seems OK now. I thought that would be the case but didn't understand the difference between hsfmodem andn the dial up modem which appears under another tab(bit of an antique myself!)
It's free and after you have removed any entries in device manager run it and it will remove old entries in your registry...If you are unsure about what to remove, always choose to backup prior to cleaning.
