Using windows ME. Just got Dynex 56k usb modem. Installed, and in device manager the device status says " The NTKERN.VXD device loader for this device could not load the device driver." Did i get a bad driver? Any ideas?
 

A:usb modem driver wont install

Welcome to the Forum!

I don't know crap about ME, and have avoided it like the Plague.

That said, I am wondering why NTKERN.VXD would be involved. I did not think ME was an NT based Op/sys???

I suggest going to the manufacturer's website and getting the latest driver and any related software.

I got a new p4 3 gig with hyperthreading pc. For a while it was working like a charm, on overdrive. But only after a week of use, I started to have problems. While playing very visually demanding games (Battlefield 1942, Medal Of Honor) I would keep gettin those dreaded blue screen of death thingies. I would get one of 3 errors. One said, "IRQL_NOT_EQUAL_TO_OR_LESS_THAN" another said, "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" although im not quite sure about the NONPAGED part, i know it said non something. And the other one I think I only got once and cant remember exactly what it was, it had something to do with IRQ.

Now on all of them it said it was shutting down my pc to avoid hardware damage. Which it did, I had about 3 seconds to read the screen before my pc shut down. After a while, It got so bad that I would get an error while just browsing the internet with explorer. I tried taking out my vid card and using the on-board video, didnt work. I dont remember if xp stopped starting or not, but I decided I should format my hd to fix the problem. I only have the xp upgrade cd so I had to install win98 first. Win 98 installed fine, except that on the first startup after installation my pc resarted itself and I got the "failed startup, choose an option" thing, I chose normal start up and it worked fine.

Hi
I have a swan speed demon 56kv90 modem
Model number: E210

Have downloaded drivers for it from site, it had a picture of the modem next to filename so i am sure i got right drivers, got win2000/XP one. Running win2000.
Put drivers in first then plugged in modem, it found it fine.
Then when trying to dial out it says no modem or hardware error.
When i done modem query, it says ok for first part then says command not supported for the rest of commands done.
I know the modem works fine, and the com port is working, as i got a dial tone when using a dialer program with another modem, but even that modem would not dial the dial up number aftewards.
Have rang the dial up provider and they say the modem may not be working but i know it is.

Would reinstalling driver multiple times make it clash?

I am sure its a driver issue.
Thanks if you can help

Hi,

with my old HDD, I did a Windows update 2 weeks ago but i stop halfway due to thunderstorm, i did a system restore and then continue Windows update the next day.

subsequently, my PC shut down and restart automatically after a few hours, so I did another system restore but this time the system restore was not successful, and now my PC is stuck in endless shut down and restarting cycle. .....as a result, i thought my old HD is not working properly...so i bought a new HD to replace the old HD one..

after i had installed windows 7 and drivers, it shut down randomly. I try to do a dell diagnostics , but it shutdown during the diagnostic test. now it will not boot and it makes loud fan noise (sounds like vacuum cleaner).

A:PC Wont start after install new HD

Hello mate now if the drive is making a loud noise then I would hazard a guess at it being faulty I would contact whoever you got it from a for a replacement.

In reality the noise it does make should only be just discernible and tta that a slight whirring sound and maybe some odd ticking clicking noises.

Have you tried touching the device while it is making the noise?? it too should only be very faint vibrations and clicking sensations.

Hi

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop that refuses to get past the "Microsoft Corporation" scrolling bar on boot up. I have run various diagnostics and hardware seems fine. I am guessing its some sort of operating system problem. The laptop is about 4-5 years old and I have had no problems until recently. I previous used McAfee and recently changes to the AVG free antivirus product, which I have run on xp machines previously. if I boot the laptop in safe mode the boot stops when loading

Hi, I also just downloaded service Pack 2, and now my system won't start up. It tries to boot, but fails.

Now here's the catch: A few months ago my old PC crashed and I had a tech put my old hard c: drive into my new PC, so that my old files (still on XP OS) would be saved, but the new PC had a Vista OS and would run on my F:drive.

So I think what's happening is that somehow the service pack 1 update has somehow changed my c:drive (the hard drive from the old PC) to my default drive, when actually it should be reading the F:drive.

How can I verify this and how do I change this back??

Please help.
Thank you!

A:Windows Firewall wont start. Fonts will not install

You don't say if you tried any steps to fix it but the 1st thing I would do is right click Start choose Run and type services.msc, scroll down to Windows Firewall and set to auto or at least manual if you're running a 3rd party firewall and if not then set the start to auto as you should leave it running anyway. If the tab where you change it's statues is greyed out go back to Run enter "regedit" (without the quotes) and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MpsSvc and make sure the Start DWORD value in the right pane is set to 2 then restart your computer. Since you mentioned questionable software you should also run a scan with Malwarebytes and I would also consider something like the E-Set online scanner or similar before anything else

So I turn my computer off one day only to find it wont start the next day. I open the case up and see the led is on. I flip the switch on the power supply off then on and quickly press the power button. My computer starts but the following time I shut down the computer it again wont start and now the led is blinking. I've never had any issues like this before, any help would be appreciated.

I don't routinely use many usb devices, only my mouse and keyboard and every now and then my ipod. I figure the issue is likely either the power supply or the motherboard. The ps is almost two years old while the motherboard is only about three months old.
 

A:Computer wont start, power supply wont start, blinking led

It sounds to me like your PSU is the problem, get a hold of another and plug it to your computer and see if that will make it start, if it doesn't it might be BOTH your motherboard and PSU. A bad PSU will burn a motherboard.

Hey, I am trying to install a USB WWAN modem on my Vista laptop (2.33 ghz, 2 gb ram) and when i follow the instructions on the software provided, it says to insert the usb modem and let windows recognize it and install it, and go from there.

the problem is, once i put in the usb drive, vista recognizes that there is a new device in, but once it tries to install it, it won't recognize any drivers on the disc thats inserted, and doesn't find anything on the rest of the computer.

the modem has been successfully installed on two XP machines, and one mac, so i know that its possible to do, but its not letting me do it on my laptop...

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

A:USB modem WWAN modem won't install in Windows Vista

I would say check the mfg website and see if you cant find some updated drivers for it or even check google and see if anyone has "hacked" the XP drivers into working with Vista. I know that Vista's been having lots of issues with past and current third party products and so it could just be that your modem is incompatible with Vista or you just need to look a bit more for newer drivers.

Hello,

Today I noticed that I could not open my start menu with neither the windows button, ctrl + esc, or a click of the mouse. I've also had a problem the last couple of days saving/opening files in one of the programs I used to make music. I tried to go into safe mode to do system restore, but the safe mode didn't boot. It scrolled all the system files on the screen but then just stopped and nothing happened.

So, I tried the other option (forget what it's called) that lets you perform various other system restoration tasks. I brought up the system restore screen from there, but got an error that said something about corrupt files so it could not perform the restore. I checked again, and all my restore points had been deleted.

Lastly, when I click computer, all the drives are blank with no names beside them, only the icons. I can still click them and they seem to be functioning normally, so I don't know if there is a relation to this. I don't know if some registry files were deleted or if there is some other problem. I didn't notice the start menu/safe mode/blank icon issues until I just recently installed the latest windows update.

Sorry if this seemed a little long winded, but I would appreciate help from anyone.

Thanks,

The whole cycle only takes a few seconds.

Welcome to TSG.

I have searched, unsucsessfully, for a driver for the modem you listed.
Have you tried to reseat the modem in the mother board? The reason I ask is because, Windows should see it a try to load a driver.
I would remove modem, boot without it, remove device from device manager and shutdown. Reinstall modem and see if windows picks it up.

If this doesn't work at least your post will be bumped up.

Can anyone shed some light on to why i am not able to use a usb modem on my new Dell XPS i7 Machine. i am in the mountains of Spain so all i have is Dial up. I first tried a cheap usb modem on my machine as there are only express slots in it. ruling out an internal one. This didn't work. So thinking it was the cheap modem i bought this US Robotics 5637 fitted it checked all settings with my internal modem in my other machine that workd fine but still no joy. both usb modems i have tried are all v92 and my isp uses v90 but they are backward compatible anyway so there should be no problem there.
I get the normal couple of bleeps then it starts with the usual noise talking normally it would do this for maybe 15-20 sec's then stop and wait for a reply but not with these usb modems they just carry on until it will eventually time out and errors with the error 678 the remote computer did not respond. it did exactly the same with the cheap usb modem. So i am at a loss as to what to do next i have checked all the settings with the working machine but with no luck they are both set up exactly the same.

I have a software modem which wont connect to the ISP and I feel that what is needed is some form of modem command. What happens is that I hear the modem dial the ISP, it starts to briefly negotiate with the ISP and then everything stops (freezes almost).
There are no messages like "logging onto network etc". If the line happens to be busy the modem will tell me that.

I have contacted the ISP who has given me a range of different phone numbers to try, but the problem remains the same. I feel I need some form of modem command but don't really know what I want.

Any help that you can give me will be much appreciated.

im fixing my friends computer i loaded up windows 200 pro and aol and when i tried to connect to aol it says no modem installed i had a generic modem driver and tried that but still no go it is a computer someone built i need some assistance thanks in advance
 

A:wont detect modem!!!!!!!!!!!

PCI modems are less that friendly in this area often.

Try removing the modem, booting, shutting down and refitting the modem to see if that helps it to recognise it has one (try a different PCI slot as well).

While you have the modem out, note down all identifiable stickets or names. The FCC compliance is useful as well.

Use Google to search for the modem make/model using whatever info you can get, then download and install the correct modem driver.

At this point many simply give up and buy a new modem, with compatable drivers...

My modem seems to stay off-hook even when computer is turned off..

I was online last week, when my electricity blinked off and on.

Since that, I have to unplug the phone cord from the modem everytime I want to dial into the web.
Even if I unplug/plug in the modem while the computer is turned off it goes off hook, and there is no dial tone on my fax machine. So I have to keep it unplugged from the jack on the modem.
I went into hyperterminal and typed AT, it said OK. I typed ATI4 it came back with this as my modem type.

"Conexant HSP56 modem Data/Fax/Voice/Speakerphone/v.80

I am using Windows XP home edition and IE 6.0.

I typed ATDT it said no dial tone, BUT on the bottom of the terminal window it said connected even tho I was not. So it knew the phone was off hook.

I have looked for modem settings, and at my netzero settings, which I found one setting that said hang up at disconnect, but it was already marked.
Can you suggest anything, I don't know what else to try
thanks

I can't get the driver software for my modem to load into the machine. The modem was working perfectly till I installed an ethernet card and its software. The ethernet card seemed to be working ok. (I'm setting this old 486 up for my kid who is in grad school...she just needs it for word processing and email). I tried to get online to download drivers for a printer and found that the modem wouldn't work anymore.When I tried to start my ISP, the error message said that the com port was already busy. I assume that this had something to do with the ethernet card being recently installed. I removed the ethernet card and its driver, and then removed the moden and drivers. I then started the computer without the modem installed, shut it down, put the modem card back in the computer, and restarted it, therby letting Windows find the newly installed modem. It detected the modem, then asked for the driver software, which I put in the A drive. I clicked on "next",windows found the software in the A drive and sait that I should click on "finish".

A:Modem wont work?

2 things to try. First is start up in Safe Mode and remove all COM ports and any modems that may still be showing. Reboot and see if it works.

Second, check your WinModem disk - there should be an uninstall program on there that removes all the WinMomem files from your system. If not, let us know - we'll track it down for you.

Do you notice if the screen flashes a quick blue before it restarts?If it does, go back to the Safe Mode menu and select instead Disable automatic restart on system failure. The computer will try then to boot normally. If booting should fail and 'bluescreen', the PC will display it instead of rebooting.

After only just having one problem solved on here I have encountered another and I think it is fairly problematic but am far from understanding it - please help!!!

I downloaded the new version of Internet Explorer (version 8) as this was an option when I signed onto the web this afternoon (I previously had IE 7 and am running Windows XP version 2).

But after downloading this I had trouble getting onto the net (though I seemed to be able to initially). So I restarted the PC. But, it did not restart.

Instead I get the following message on a plain black screen when I try to run my computer:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
<Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
Please re-install a copy of the above file.

What is this file? I have an Acer Aspire notebook which came installed with Windows XP Version 2 (I have no CD drive currently).

I have looked on the microsoft website (I am currently on a different PC) but dont understand anything that is posted on their about this problem.

Do I need to re-install a new operating system? Will this mean I will loose all my data that is on my computer? This is very precious to me as I am travelling and I have saved on my computer photos and diary entries - I would be very upset to loose them.

What is my best course of action? Should I take it to a specialist. Again I really hope I can prevent the information that I did have saved on there from being deleted.

Thankyou to anyone who can assist.

First up, I apologise if I've posted this in the wrong place.

Ok, so problem I'm having is as follows:

I have 1 computer running XP Home SP2, connected to this machine is a Dlink Dl-624+ Airplus G+ wireless router (the intent is to wirelessly connect my 2nd machine which is running XPpro SP2 when I've finished putting it together) and connected to the router is a Sweex ADSL Annex-A modem. Now, the machine this is all connected to recognises the ethernet connections as displayed by the LAN icon, and the router and modem seem to be talking to each other as indicated by the lights on each module. But, when attempting to connect to my ISP (Onetel) the modem indicates that it is only getting as far as the "handshake" while trying to connect, and continues to do this all the time. I've checked all the cabling and everything seems to be in order, and I've gone through all of the hardware manuals at least 5 times so far to check that I've followed the manufactorers instructions to the letter.

My question is: Have I been dumb and inputed some information incorrectly, or is there something wrong with hardware, or... is this a problem on the ISP's end??

Oh, I'm asking you guys here before I've talked to the ISP tech support people to try and avoid long winded, costly, telephone calls (as cynical as that may be). I hope some one out there feels smarter than I do right now and can help.

Thanks in advance... Dweller

A:ADSL modem wont connect to ISP...

Check the DI-624 configuration.

Are you sure you have configured the DI-624 correctly? The routers setup wizard will step you through the basics. You should make sure that you have DHCP server set and your XP Home PC is getting a valid IP address from the router. With the DI-624 this address will be in the range 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199 (the default).

You might also try a ping test from the routers setup page "Tools/Misc". If you have a good ISP connection you should be able to ping your ISP successfully?

I believe cable providers usually use dynamic IP addresses. Has your router been correctly set up for this and did you specify valid primary and secondary DNS addresses, as provided by you cable provider?

A:new dsl modem wont work with router

Can't find anything about that modem. "Now i tired to config, Modem into brigde mode" makes me think that maybe it is a modem/router combo. Is it? If so, and you can't get it into bridge mode you can daisy chain the routers, but make sure that they do not use the same LAN subnet. Or you can configure the 2nd router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point.

Hi guys, I am currently running my desktop, laptop ps3 & TV on my internet connection. the modem has only one ethernet port so i plugged it to a dlink router which appears to be working fine, for the past two years. i decided to get a new router since this one has been intermittent and constantly drops the signal. i'm running my desktop(main computer) hard wired and have windows xp sp3 on it, my laptop has vista.
I got a new CISCO linksys e2500(dual band N router) since the old d link i had isnt dual. i was told it is better.
anyways, if i basically connect the new router to the modem, there wont be any internet connection to any of the devices.
i've installed the CD it came with, i can open the setting page 192.2.2.2 bla bla bla.. lol but i cant seem to figure out how to connect it. i've treid resseting the modem and router and computers everything lol cant seem to make it work.
i'm changed cords, basically done every change possible through hardware so i know for a fact its a software issue.
IO've been told the the modem cant seem to connect to the router.

when i used my phone to logon through wireless. it said i wasnt able to join. so i put back to old router and everything works fine. without any installation.

A:modem wont connect to router

It would be best to remove any software you installed so that Windows can handle the connection.

What type of modem is it? Did you check the settings on the old modem to see if the input jack was set any special way? On some setups, the modem does not connect to the input on the router but to one of the (usually 4) outputs so that the modem is itself part of the network. The same thing can be done by changing the setting of the input jack in the router's settings.

A:new drive wont detect modem

I cannot find anything with the exact numbers you have. However, a Google on 56KRW produces THIS LINK. It refers to a Rockwell modem. However, since Rockwell is now Conexant I did some checking there, too. It looks like you might have an earlier generation of THIS DEVICE, but that's just a guess.

Another guess - I would bet you have a Conexant 56kb Winmodem. If you can take it out again and find the number on the chip, or any other numbers, you may be able to chase them through the Conexant site.

Good luck.

You are probably using a default driver for the monitor. You will have to supply more info on the monitor to get directions to the proper driver.

I recently formatted an old win95 computer (166 w/32 megs of ram)
Win 98 installed without any problems but during hardware set-up it didn't detect my modem (Zoltrix fm-hsp 336I)...it is an ISA modem w/no jumper wires.
I have never had this kind of problem when formatting before. I tried removing and reinstalling it in every available slot and rebooting yet win98 still does not detect any new hardware. While trying to troubleshoot this problem I uninstalled my sound card and it was detected w/ no problem in any slot, and the modem DID work fine in win95 prior to formatting. I am kind of new to this so is it possible that being so old it is not 'plug and play' compatible and I need to manually install and configure it or something??? I am used to only installing the drivers when prompted to do so when the OS has detected the new hardware.

Hi, I searched around for an answer but couldn't find one.

My problem is that my old router was starting to fail, so I decided to upgrade to a Netgear WNR2000 http://www.comet.co.uk/shopcomet/product/507504/NETGEAR-300N-WIRELESS-CABLE-ROUTER/tab/specification

It worked perfectly wirelessly, with great signal and never cut out, unlike my old one which cut out every 5 minutes, literally.
Here is my old one http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=316 A D-link DI-524. It never had a good connection.

So, my new router I bought, the WNR2000 worked wirelessly, but did not work wired, as in on the main computer which has the modem connected to it. The modem works fine when I connect it straight to the computer but doesn't work when trying to send signals to the new router, it seems to only send them to the old one.

Then I went and bought a cheap router from ebay, the listing has ended now, but it's here http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=184371 And that wont work at all, wired or wireless.

I know/think the routers are fine because I can connect to the home network, but it gives no internet connection.

Any help? This is really puzzling me. Oh and the modem we have is one we got from NTL, who are now Virgin. My only thought is that the modem is incompatible with the new routers. But it seemed to work wirelessly with my Netgear, but not wired at the same time... It's very confusing...

hi my advent 7011 wont connect to my motorola modem but will connect to my other compact laptop using the same cable its (ono)a spanish company as i live in spain any ideas i guess it has to be a configuration problem but no idea what it can be cheers royalmailman1...
 

A:Motorola modem wont connect to laptop but will on another one?

Cable modem or telephone modem. Operating system?
Generally, for either one, it is a driver install issue. Perhaps we can help if you tell us the exact model and version of hardware and firmware. It should be on the back or bottom of the device.

Hi all,

Hi guyz,

I upgraded a pc from windows 98 to XP Home and everything seems fine except the internal 56k modem,

Windows has installed it (i dont have a driver disc for it) so it shows in device manager, but when i try to connect to the internet it clicks twice then shows "no dial tone", ive checked the cable, phone line etc and turned off "wait for dial tone" in the modem settings.

Could it be anything in the bios or perhaps the motherboard firmware, or is there something else im doing wrong?

Thanx

You'll have to bear with me because this computer was given to me and I really have no idea how to use it, the system is Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 3. The computer is Intel (R), Pentium (R) 4, CPU. No hardware or discs were given with it. I'm used to working on a Dell Inspiron 1525 with windows vista. The other laptop was an acer and was also on Windows vista. Both were able to connect to the internet with my cable modem. For some reason this desktop computer wont connect to the internet or will say "limited or no connectivity" and when it says that it will not connect or it will connect and work fine. I dont understand whats going on. Could it be that one of the wires coming from my modem is messed up (its a little torn) or is it the modem or the actual computer settings and what not. I really need some specific directions as to how to fix this seeing as I go to school online and I start again Monday. Thanks so much!

See if there aren't any custom proxy settings, try clearing the DNS cache & if it doesn't work, you can always try to repair the Winsock files.

All I can remember doing is turning my router and modem on for 30 seconds and then on again, and now every computer in my house is unable to download torrents (I have some at like 98%!).

Also webcam streaming sites like chatroulette and tinychat wont work! I can go to the pages but the webcam box is just black and wont stream anything.

Also, video streaming wont work! Youtube and vimeo work but not those sites where you click a link and it opens windows media player, because when i click the link, window media player opens up and i get a "Windows Media Player cannot find the file. If you are trying to play, burn, or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted." message!

I thought port forwarding was the problem but i just cant seem to do it right. Also, i connected my computer directly to the modem and still, all these things didn't work! D:
ahh! im convinced the problem is caused by one source! Super annoying!
Please please please help me!!

I just can not find a fix for this. The modem installed with latest firmware and system states the device is working properly. The connection manager shows the service provider and signal strenthg, however, when i click connect it says dial up failed.
On windows xp i managed to connect through network settings. I have USSD and sms functions. all info regarding dlink seems to be very outdated. I suspect it has something to do with switchmode, so that windows will recognise it as a modem and a usb stick,
i could be wrong. Please assist, I have trying for hours to find a solution to migrate to another laptop. Thanks.

All the light on my modem keep blinking. I have tried reseting it, and unplugging it for a while. Then when I turn it back on the lights are solid for a few seconds and then they all start blinking. The internet will not connect.

Is there somthing wrong with the modem itself or should I call the internet company?

A:Lights on modem keep blinking and internet wont connect

Hi -
I am lucky that I have a few spare modems to check basic problems against.
But personally, I would call your Internet Provider first and see if there are any known problems in your area.
If there are none, they should then guide you through resetting the modem back to basics and see if this works, or check if your modem is faulty.
Have a coffee and a well charged phone with you, as some ISP's can be a bit slow -

Good Luck -

I bought an ASUS Black Diamond Dual Band Wireless-N 600 Router (RT-N56U) to upgrade from my older router but I'm having a problem: It won't connect to my cable modem (via the WAN ethernet port), so I can't connect to the internet.

http://i43.tinypic.com/ftdk4y.jpg http://i42.tinypic.com/11ih508.jpg

When I connect the router to my computer via ethernet cable, the light on the ethernet port of the router comes on (an orange LED light), but when I connect my cable modem (or computer) to the the router through the WAN ethernet port, the WAN port's LED does not come on at all and I keep getting an error message on my browser saying that I need to make sure the ethernet cable is connected.

I've tried three different ethernet cables, including the one that came with the router, with no luck (WAN LED lights never come on, so I assume that this means that there is no activity at all). I've also tried cloning the MAC address, restoring to factory default, updating the routers firmware, and holding the reset button on the modem for 15 seconds, among other things. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be?

Also, something that might be worth noting: While one end is connected to my modem, if I plug the ethernet cord into one of the 4 ethernet ports on the router, the green LED instantly turns on but, as I said before, there's no activity when plugged into the WAN port.
