Internal Modem -'..could not open port..' error

  Horby 16:23 25 Apr 05

Hi there,

Have Toshiba Tecra running XP Home SP2.

When I try to access the internal Tochiba modem (listed as 'Toshiba Software Modem AMR on COM3') I get the following message;

'The port that the modem is attached could not be opened. This may be the result of a hardware conflict. Check Device manager to verify all devices are functional.'

This I have done and device manager does not show any problem devices or does system info show any IRQ conflicts. I have removed and re-installed the modem but get the same problem.

Could someone please advise what I should check next.

Many thanks.
