my friend built me a new computer, we got almost everything brand new, except we reused my old modem, which worked great on my other old computer. anyway, we re installed xp pro, and installed all the drivers, and my isp disk, but when i try to connect to the internet, as soon as i click "connect" or "dial" my computer freezes. i've been on high speed internet through an ethernet cable, and it worked just fine, but i cant use my dial up for some reason. i tried diabling my NIC port, and then the dial up started dialing, then it froze again, and now it freezes as soon as i hit connect. my computer teacher at my school couldnt figure this out... someone help plz!

In the bad old days of command line and ISA slots, it made a difference by putting your communication card in the last slots.
Check your Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools, located in the Control panel, for error messages. Post the last four error message here.
