l reformatted my friends comp a while ago and the driver xp puts on for her modem doesnt work,so i downloaded the correct driver..all works well except for the fact that when she gets online the modem still makes some kind of noise the whole time she is online...does anyone have any ideas? Ive tried a different driver but no use. It's a conexant hcf 56k

Can't understand that just put the same one in a friends machine running xp, it detected it installed it's own drivers works fine.
could be that the modem is on it's way out.

hmmm strange that. It works ok with 98se,no noises or anything and the comp itself is only about 2/3 years old..never thought of the modem being on its way out!! Thanks :)

Might just be a coinsidance that it went at the same time as xp install

I agree with Strawballs. XP put the driver in for me too but since a new 56k modem with XP drivers is under a tenner then is it worth messing about with?

ok,so you guys reckon she needs a new modem then?..any advice on the best one to get and where to go for it?
Cheers
