I have had trouble with connecting my modem for broadband.
when i load up my computer locks up. I have to resep and then all is ok. same with standby.
I have tried two different modems both the same fault.

I get an eror page saying that i should DISABLE BIOS MEMORY OPTIONS. such as CASHING AND SHADOWING.

my problem is how.
I have looked into BIOS, but can't find out how to do this.

#can anyone help please.

To be honest i cant see why the modem should need these changing,they are usually g-card options and it very rare you need to change them.
What gives you the error message?

The Caching and Shadowing options are, as ACOLYTE rightly states, involved with graphics and are usually best left Disabled.

If you are using XP, set the PnP option to No or Disabled (yes, I'm aware it's the opposite of what you would expect!)
