I just re-installed WinXP ( not too sure what version, think it's SP1) and formatted the HD on a friends PC but on completion the drivers for the modem havent been installed. XP was installed previously, so the modem IS compatible with Win XP.

If I knew what type of modem it was I could probably get a driver for it but I dont. Is there any other way out of this other that buying a new modem ??

I have the same problem with the graphics card on an another PC again !!

Theres no info on the cards. theres a few numbers on one of the chips alright but I think thats just a batch code.

Is there any other way of finding out ??

Hi,

If you go to Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager Is there a red or yellow mark on the modem area?

Expand the modem area, then right click on the modem and click update drivers....what happens? Usually it will tell you what modem is installed if one is.

Oh, if using WinXP, make sure your PnP is set to Disabled in the BIOS setup menu.

http://www.drivermagician.com/unknowndevice.htm <<-- just found it... you can download the file from here...

hope that like this, is not called "SPAM"

download the file, and install it...
then go to tools
then select the detect unknown device
then from there should have detected your modem type, name, model
from here i think u can try search around the web for your modem driver.
