Hi all,

I recently re-installed windows xp on my computer but now when I try to connect to the internet an error ocurs stating that the modem is not detected

The pc was connecting to the net prior to the re-installation of XP so Im suspecting that Im in need of a modem driver maybe! I cannot find out any information about the modem in the system tools. By the way Im using a dial up connection and the modem is internal.

What action should I take and how do I know which driver to use?

...please help!

I downloaded this program and you're right it does seem pretty good for finding out system info. However, could you tell me what direction exactly I should be looking in to figure out which modem driver I need to install? Am I trying to find out my computers chipset?

i doubt you are looking for an onboard modem. why don't you turn off your computer, take off a side, find the modem, take it out (easy) , and write down everything you can, go to www.driverguide.com
username-driver2
password-all
use the simple search to locate the drivers, if you are having a hard time, there is a live chat there with people to help you
Google...Google.....browse..read
