Remove Modem

  Hofnar 14:47 11 Dec 2005

I would like to instal a internal USB card but haven't got a spare PCI slot. As I have an external Broadband modem, can I remove the modem from inside the PC without creating problems?

yes but first go to hardware - device manager and click on your modem and uninstall it. Then switch off the pc and physically remove it.

Thanks howard63. I had forgotten about uninstalling before removing.

If you remove the modem physically you will delete it from Device Manager - reinstalling it will once again list it in Device Manager.
