Missing reg value - when trying to uninstall modem

  johnem 23:14 01 Jan 2006

Hi gang, back for a little more help. On my W98Se laptop, I earlier installed the drivers etc for a Voyager 105 ADSL modem. I have been having a few other problems with puter earlier, these are now more or less sorted. Well at least it is up and running. However, when I tried to connect up to the modem, I receive the message that the connection no longer exists. I have checked the settings etc and found some of them are now greyed out. I decided that as there had been other problems, that it had possibly become corrupted and would therefore uninstall the drivers etc, with a view to then re-installing them at a later date. The message I then received is that "Unable to find Reg value: Key=Software\GlobespanVirata\Adslvalue=driverType". I have briefly used regedit to try to locate this entry to no avail. Is there a way to recreate this key value? If so, where abouts in the registry should it be located?

just reinstall the driver without trying to uninstall first.

Have tried that and received the same information. I suspect the problem is as result of the earlier trouble when an upgrade to McAfee caused "An unexepcted error" and the only way out was to reboot. Following that I had to restore to an earlier succesfull boot to get the machine up and running. I suspect that as the update had just finished when the system froze that this has corrupted something.

Thanks for the info, read the link thoroughly and used the "105 Doctor". Able to re-install drivers and broadband is back up and running. Thanks for the help.
