i have offered to try and fix a comp. for a froends mother, every modem driver i have tried has failed (couldn't open port) also in device manager 'pci communications device' has a question mark. Any advice would be appreciated.

Well, you'll not install any driver unless you remove the PCI Comms Device, as this is part of the driver.

Then on reboot, the first thing the system should detect is the PCI Comms device, at which time you have to point it to the correct driver.

If you don't have the driver on a disk that came with the system (ask the nother for it) - then you'll have to spend a bit of time identifying the modem.

Modems are so cheap, it's arguable that it's quicker and easier to fit a new one, which will have a driver with it.
