presario 5030 modem install

  alan2k1 09:54 18 Jun 2003

i have done a clean install of win 98 on a compaq presario 5030. i can not get the modem to install. i have tried the following with no success. it is always detected as a unknown device. i have added com ports up to 4. tried deleting unknown device and redetecting it - (the modem is the unknow device -- i deleted it in device manager and phyically removed it and it wasn't detected until i plugged it back in )thing i found odd were that when "looking for modem" it only querried com port 1 and not 2 3 or 4. i have tried different drivers. using compaq driver off their site i get error saying LAUNCH APP ERROR - the system cannot find the file specified c\windows\system\infunist.exe

any help would be welcome before i pull whats left of my hair out :-)

thanks alan

alan2k1 - it appears we're out of luck here mate - - I posted one similar to this ages ago, will have a mooch and see if I can locate it. I did actually resolve it in that particular case but more by luck than judgement.
