You will need to know the make and model of the modem and go to the manufacturers website and download a new one.

If it is a win-modem and came with the motherboard, the driver will probably be on the motherboard drivers CD.

Simply go to Start/Control Panel/Modems.
Click on modem and then install when have disk or select from list comes up click on select from list.
Here you will have a list of all the populat menufacturers and their various models.
If you know what yours is Maker/Model find it and click on it.

If you have any dounby go nack to top of list and select the Generic one for your speed [typically 56k]

Is it the Toshiba satellite laptop?

click here

put in notebook > satellite > 41xx > 4100 and pick either manual or drivers. Both have the modem drivers.;-)

To install a replacemet modem you must remove the existing first.

In device manager - modem - expand and remove the one that is curently installed.

When you reboot you will be asked to allow install the new driver or asked to provide new driver.

Hi woodchip & Dan,
Firstly thank you for all your assistance.
I eventually semi opened the laptop.
Found the hard drive.
Removed and refitted. Now seems ok.
Not sure what I done, but there must have been some loose connection.

Well done.

it must have been a loose connection.
