modem locks up on dialing

  M595MTT 20:59 26 Feb 06

I have just obtained a Toshiba laptop with a Pentium 1 processor running Windows ME. I tested the modem using phone dialer and connected ok. Tried to set up a Internet account but the pages froze just before fully loading. I put the laptop away for the night, went to go onto the net next day and the system locked up as soon as the number started dialing. Device manager reports no conflicts and that the modem is working correctly. Modem properties > diagnostics > more info again locks the system up. Could this be a faulty modem or a driver problem.
Many thanks to anyone who can come up with and idea.
