xp ignoring no dial tone

  solderman 11:17 05 Feb 2003

running WIN98 and XP, internal rockwell hcf modem,single telephone line.

WIN98; works OK,if anyone using phone reports 'no dial tone'.

XP; dials out,regardless if any one using phone.No error message.

Both systems have 'wait for dial tone' Checked.

Anyone had same problem, or suggest a remedy

Many Thanks

Do you have the correct modem driver for XP? As XP will install a generic driver

could only use the generic driver which XP installed automatically. Tried various drivers but all rejected by XP without option to Continue. Borrowed a more up todate card and it worked OK. Surmise my card is too old(like me).
Will have to put my hand in pocket.
Many thanks to all
