Hi and Welcome to PressF1 :)

I see you have accidently created a poll for your thread, I have closed this for you but cannot completely remove it. I have also moved this thread to the correct forum for technical problems. :)

Have you installed the modem drivers for your modem?

Hi Izzy, can you be a bit more specific about the Compaq Deskpro PC model (model number & date of manufacture) or if you can the modem itself. As you can see here (http://www.modem-help.com/mfcs.php?mid=25), there are a whole heap of Compaq PCI win-modems. Chances are, it's be Askey/Lucent but, we need to be sure what it is, preferably down to the chip version/revision.

I would suggest....a new modem.

Far easier then the alternative,and going by your location you should be able to pick up a modem for less then a loaf of bread.

And I have to ask.....have you ever tried vegimite?

I second the suggestion of a new modem. Cheap, quick and easy. That or hunt through the original docs for the drivers.

I'd put an even $10 that the OP never finds this thread again.

Arrrh! or just load the modem driver off the Compaq CD which came with the PC, that's if you still have it that is.

Chances are, It'd be a half height modem in a Compaq, wouldn't it guys (& guyess), can you slot a standard one straight in?
