View Full Version : Modem not being recognised in Windows 95



30-01-2000, 11:23 PM
We are having trouble with getting a Digital Venturis model 466 to recognise an internal modem.

The message we are getting back is:

? Modem failed to respond. Make sure it is properly connected and verify the interrupt for the port is properly set.?

The modem is a Dynalink internal (ISA) 33.6 k. It is definitely working okay as I have tried it in another machine. Windows 95 does not detect the modem when you try to install it but the modem shows up as okay in device manager after manually installing the drivers.

When looking in the modems section of control panel, the modem shows up as being present until you run the diagnostic check and click on ?more info ? ; the above message is then displayed.

I have tried the modem on various com ports without any change. I have also changed the slot that it fitted on the motherboard without success.

The only other thing I have noticed is that on switch on, when the machine is going through its checks before loading Win 95, a DOS message comes up:

? 2F8 com address conflict.??

Device manager shows no obvious conflicts though.

Machine specs are 486, 16MB RAM, Win 95, 500MB H/D, Phoenix BIOS.


Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks
