I've recently installed XP Pro on 2 Pc's. On both occassions it failed to detect the internal modem - why?

cheers

Have you installed the driver for the modem? Windows seldom get the modem driver right.

Go to Device Manager, and see if there's a yellow exclamation mark. A modem without a driver is usually described as a PCI Communications Device.

I had the same problem when I installed Win xp.
Installing Service Pack 1 fixed it for me.
