Hi Jack. I think you have mistyped the error message. I don't want to be pedantic, but unless the files are typed correctly it is impossible to diagnose the fault. I think ASP14DOS SYS should be aspi4.sys, but I'm not sure what CONMS. SYS LINE 15 should be, is it comms.sys or (more likely config.sys. If you don't use capitals it will also make the posting more readable.

Hi mjack. First the file name I gave was incomplete, I should have said aspi4dos.sys not aspi4.sys.

I don't think the error regarding a file called from config.sys is likely to be the cause or your problem because config.sys is a DOS file and is not used once Windows has started. I think it is more likely that your modem is not properly installed. Have a look in Device Manager and see if you can find your modem and if there are any yellow exclamation marks.
