Iam running xp With hp560 modem in pci slot
It worked fine once, I went to use it again and connection failed due to "Modem switched off or not installed properly" . I have done the usual things
1, Modem is in slot ok, 2. Uninstalled then used XP hardware detection wizard to reload drivers etc fron cd 3. even tried restore to last known working state but NONE WORKED.
Any ideas folks ?

I had simmilar trouble with a modem once. I tried EVERYTHING, including contacting BT.In the end I just changed the modem and everything was rosy again. Modems cost from a tenner upwards now so it's not the end of the world....
