Modem Card STILL does NOT install help


R

Robert Macy

The modem card that used to work in the Win98 does not transfer into
the WinXP machine

By turning on the ?? first got me passed the 1717 error message, but

now I get a 777 error message saying the modem doesn't work,
yes it does in the Win98

Either driver set, the
generic default
Best Data Data Fax Modem
or the one some one kindly sent the URL for
HXCsetup.exe
both yield the error

how do I wake up XP to know the modem is there?

Always the query works with similar answers

Just go to the store and buy a new modem. It will definitely work with
XP and it will cost under $25 for a basic one, very little more for a
more elaborate one.

I don't know where you got "HXCsetup.exe" or what it is. If you meant
HFXsetup.exe, that file appears to be a Win98/ME/NT driver that will not
work in Windows XP.

Assuming that you have a Conexant modem (which it seems that you do,
based on "Best Data") Go here:
http://www.conexant.com/support/md_winxpinfo.html#q1 and read the FAQs.

Run the List Modem application (listmodem_app.zip) (see answer to FAQ 1)
to find out if your modem is supported in the inbuilt driver on WinXP.
You may have to open up your computer to check the chipset used in the
modem (see answer to FAQ 4).

Finally, note the advice from Conexant:
The generic software offered here should be considered a stop-gap
measure only. In all cases, Conexant urges you to contact the
manufacturer for drivers or any technical support issues.

Are you the same idiot who's been clogging this group for the past
week with modem problems after taking an old modem out of a '98
machine and installing it in your XP machine??

If so... BUY A NEW FREAKIN MODEM YOU CHEAPSKATE and stop bothering
everyone here with your bullshit.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

I went to the URL and downloaded all the information. At that URL it
said to READ the PCB.
DUH!
On the card was AMI CA00/CW00, so after a google search for that line
I seemed to have found the EXACT drivers.

Culmination...I'm now using that modem card to post this email.

Your advice led me to the correct solution.

It still seems odd that a generic driver won't run the basic modem
function, like the CD Driver and the HD driver etc etc

But the important sequence was
1) correct driver
2) manually turn on the manager
3) manually load the connection info

Thanks again.

Same person, not same idiot. I got my way. The modem works, thanks
to Lem's help.

Clogging this group?! If my 8 messages over a week bogged down the 30
per hour, excuse me. Hardly call those few "clogging"

If you're not going to proffer help to people in this group, you
should not take your time, nor the group's time, to posture. Life's
too short.

Luckily, there are many good people out there willing to help someone
legitimately seeking help.
