Which modem are you using ? This more often than not happens with laptops as well . Can you try a powered hub instead ? Code 10 means that the power supply is just not high enough .

Are you getting any lights on the modem and does the error say drivers not loaded or equivalent?

In bios there is a USB Enable and Disable

PS if it's a very old comp bios may not support USB

hi , i am installing the usb ports to connect up a printer , the modem works fine , the error says the drivers were installed but may not work because of a problem with the installation, i dont think the pc is that old the 0riginal usb ports are connected straight on to the mother board so surly must support usb

It will be OK then there is no need to go into Bios if you have a USB modem. What I think the problem is, that when you plugged the printer in it asked for windows disc etc and you clicked ok. that's what the problem is. Go to Device manager and remove all USB that you can see in there, then unplug the printer and reboot your computer. when it gets back and reinstalls USB for modem etc Plug the printer in and when it says that it's found new hardware etc click cancel until it goes away then put the Printer CD in with the printer turned on and load the software and drivers. Before you do the above make sure that the printer does not show in Add/Remove programs if it does you need to remove it first
