not unless you tell us what motherboard you installed......and what modem you have installed

Obviously, as you guessed, you need a driver, but without that information it is simply impossible for us to point you to where you can get a driver.

get the audio driver from here

http://tw.giga-byte....?ProductID=1734

The modem is a tad bit trickier

You have an Ambient Creatix V.90 HaM Data/Fax/Voice Modem

Intel made the chipset for this modem for the company that does not seem to be around anymore s0 you might try here:

http://developer.int...ort/drivers.htm

BUT, odds are it is generic enough modem so that you shoudl visit Windows Update, and check hardware after doing a search of your machine and MS will have a working driver

where did you get cmedia AC97 audio software that you tried to install?

I believe that you installed the wrong driver--perhaps you used the driver from your previous motherboard?

I think the tech who installed the m/board for me put it on. I did install the one you recommended, but it didn't take effect. Have I created some kind of conflict ? :whistling:

yes, I think so...

I want you to uninstall it in device manager again, then reboot into safe mode...then install the driver in safe mode

then reboot into normal mode,

Windows may complain the driver is not for your machine--ignore it...that is because the tech person who installed the driver forced windows to accept the incorrect driver....once Windows gets the wrong idea about what hardware is in it, you get these issues,

you do not have a cmedia chipset
