software modem on laptop

  pipefitter 18:12 27 Feb 2005

I have a Toshiba satellite a60 with a agere software modem which up until a few days ago was working fine.Then all of a sudden i couldnt get online.Checked the settings and according to win xp everything is ok but when i try in control panel to query the modem it responds with The port that the modem is attatched to could not be opened.this may be a result of a hardware conflict,check device manager to verify all devices are functional.All items in device manager are clear(no exclamation marks)and as far as i know nothing else should be using any ports.
Any ideas?
