I do have the drivers CD, but there's no working Setup routine for me to install them separately. (The Setup icon leads to a pop-up with only links to the manual and registration). When Windows wouldn't recognise the modem during boot-up, that was the first thing I tried to do.
Woodchip Tried that but just got the "Window was unable to register the modem...." error message.
Skyver I saw that in a coupla places when I was Googling, but, equally, the manual and Read Me say it will work under XP, so ....
Is there a clue in the fact that the Conexant Churchill uninstalled itself during the upgrade to SP2 and also then couldn't be recognised by Windows and also got the same error message?? That's a common factor.
<<AIDA32 shows an unknown PCI device. I've tried swapping to another PCI slot>>
Only other thought is to go to Device Manager and check the unknown device and see if you can install the drivers for it. Select the item and right click to get the options uninstall / update driver etc. Then use either your CD as the source or try searching on the Internet (if you can!).
I had to do something similar when installing a USB to RS232 Serial Port device.
