pc will not load modem drivers??

  shortcircuit 21:00 21 May 2004

I have a self built system containing;
AsRock 810lmr
256 133 Crucial ram SDrAM
350w psu.
running Me.

The problem started when I changed the Hard drive from an old 4gig to a new 60GB Excelstor and fitted a 52x burner.

Then I loaded xp pro on to the new HD and all went well, except the CMR modem was showing an error.

I then found that it was a driver error. I loaded the new driver off the net and the yellow icon on the device manager disappeared. when I tried the modem it kept on saying it was idle and then a hardware fault.

I then installed it and tried a modem from an other pc (Pc world netdragen) This also failed to load and said it was a code 10( which means reinstall). I tried another one with the same problem.

What would cause this. Do you think it could be the hard drive? Or has the mobo developed a fault?


Thanks all.

Is the CMR Enabled in the Bios ??

Can not find that facility. have tried the original cmr and 2 pci modems. nomne will load drivers fully.

In the bios go to Advanced and then look for Onboard MC 97 modem should be set to Auto

Yep is set to auto. have tried all setting to no avail. Could this be a faulty mobo ?

If other pci cards work then it is unlikely to be the motherboard.The problem might be the modem drivers---how old were the modems you used?

Also which version of windows are you using--Me or Xp-pro?

All the drivers are brand new. The pci modems will not work either. They fail to load the drivers half way and I then get a code 10 error message.
