so i'm at my dads place out in the country and a thunderstorm knocks out his modem. yes, its a crappy 56k modem but whatever.
we buy a new modem and try to connect but get 'new hardware found, PCI simple communication controller' and winXP wants us to install this driver.
sure enough its in the DEVICE MANAGER but has a big question mark on it.

now everything worked before the thunderstorm so i'm not sure how it killed the PCI simple comm controller :thumbsup:

i have the drivers for the US Robotics model 3039 modem and tried to install them but that was a no go. the PC went into a constant reboot cycle and had to do a system restore.

how can i get the PCI simple comm controller to work so that i can then install the modem drivers????
PLEASE HELP cause i've been stuck on this all afternoon :flowers:

usually you go to device manager, right click the question mark, uninstall the device, then right click and scan for new hardware and when it prompts you for the driver, tell it which folder and file and everything should work then. Have you tried completely uninstalling the device, rebooting, and then trying to scan for hardware changes and install?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Is the US Robotics model 3039 modem the old one or the new one? Not clear on that point.
The new modem should have come with a cd that contain the drivers that you need
In the beginning there was the command line.
