Ok... I have an Acer Aspire 1350 Notebook. I have reinstalled Win XP Pro as it was damaged. Now I have gone to Acer website and downloaded all the drivers. I can only install some of the downlaods (Modem, AGP powernow and chipset) as the others willn opt unzip as they are part ofa set.

In the meantime.. I cannot connect to the net via dial up. I get the Error 633. Modem (or other connecting device) is already in use or is not configured properly.

try seeing if it is got loose or if it is external, try restarting your pc then connect

the modem was working last night. Since then i have re-installed xp.. now it is not working i think it is a confliction somewhere....

I have tried the telephon.ini thing but some research shows that was for Win 98/ME/2000 but not XP. thanks so far

I have looked in Device manager and there is no COM1 port..???! there is an LPT1 port ...is that a clue?

LPT1 is a printer port.

Have you definitely loaded the modem drivers? Sorry for asking a silly question.

  Lady Lara 20:56 22 Mar 2006

I know LPT1 is a printer port.. but where is the COM1 port.. seeing as I have a comms device!!!

I have deleted modem and re-installed it but to no end!!

Could try uninstalling modem in device manager and rebooting, may detect new hardware and install it properly.

  Hertz Van Rentyl 20:59 22 Mar 2006

Possible you have the wrong modem driver for your device.

Hertz Van Rentyl...

I have done what you suggested and to no avail... thanks for so far ..
