modem does not configure on 2k pro..
mac Aug-13-02 03:23 PM
Hi,

I just put a USR modem (model 5695 i believe) in my 2k pro (MSI m/b built in sound, Graphics card, CDRW & DVD ROM).

Both serial ports are disabled in BIOS and modem is configured on IRQ5 and bunch of I/O base and OS reports no conflict for resources.

However, win 2k is unable to load the driver (error 31). How would i go about troubleshooting this one ?


Also, i bought this as OEM, but see references about free internet phone call using it, what is a good source for that info, couldn't see any off USR.COM ...

TIA

How about making sure that is what is so we don't waste time looking for the wrong MODEM. Larry

Thnx. It's a 5695 and i got the driver off usr.com.

You have the 2K (not win 9x) driver? Larry

True, I have 2k driver.

It's actually a single file used for both XP & Win 2K.

thnx

I cannot find the error or the problem. What Windows 2000 service packs do you have installed? The various service packs do address MODEM driver problems. Larry

Thanks Larry,

I Had SP2... I turned on *PNP OS installed* option in bios and also moved the modem one slot over, and OS detected it fine... I believe it was the PNP feature in BIOS that did it..
