    That's not a good error. It looks like the PCI device can't communicate with Windows at all. How old is this modem and are you sure it's physically in good condition? Need more details on the device itself (what brand/model, which port it's connected to - internal or external etc.)

    its NEW, and it was free lol
    it supports XP also

    its a bestdata modem
    model no: 56HP
    it says on the cover:
    56K V.92/V.44
    (dono what that means)

    the instructions that it is supplied with are rather simple, my dad said it may have something do with with COM1 and COM2? does anyone else have soyo kt400 platinum? maybe its the motherboard's fault

    If it's a PCI internal modem (which it should be) then COM1 or COM2 are not relevant - they're physical ports on the back of your computer. For PCI devices, you need to use COM3, COM4 or higher. Make sure the modem is sitting properly in the PCI slot and there's no dust/dirt in the port or around the modem.

    Other than that advice, I don't know if there's much else you can do other than check out the bestdata.com website for more support info.

    hi,
    I found an article that may resolve your problem -it seems Xp is refusing rights to install modem on top of dsl
    this requires some editing of the windows registry:hammer: so read carefully

    http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,6156-1359658,00.html

    hope this helps bty try a search with google on error if this does not work
    cheers:thumb:
