View Full Version : Computer shutdown when modem dials

Anyone know of a setting in XP that would cause a computer shutdown whenever the dialup connection "connect" is selected to start the modem dialing. Happens every time, not an intermittent problem.

had a faulty PSU do that tho it was intermittent.

otherwise faulty modem or incorrect/damaged drivers.

Yup sounds like a corrupt modem driver. Download the right driver for it, and reinstall it.

Thanks tweak'e and Speedy - rather unusual problem never heard of that before.

It will either be the driver, or the modem maybe conflicting with something in the system.

If the driver doesnt fix it, I would check device manager.

See if anything is showing a X or !
