Monitor won't start until USB modem unplugged

  Dubai 16:55 16 Oct 2005

Just upgraded to AOL broadband and using a USB modem. Broadband works fine, but when the PC is switched on, the monitor will not give a picture until modem is disconnected. Every thing OK when modem is reconnected. Tried using a different USB socket but problem remains. Ideas please!

"The monitor will not give a picture"

Nothing.... at all or just a few boot-up confirmations?

When does it fail? At switch-on or later? ---- What is your version of Windows?----- What other USB gizmos are plugged in at startup.

Your printer has its own separate power supply?

Sorry about all these questions, but the answers could give a clue as to just what is happening.
