He could always connect with the laptop that was in his first post.

Its the PC he cannot connect with.

Since you have uninstalled the drives, and removed/replaced the modem. You can try opening the new hardware wizard from the control panel. You should find it right next to the Add or Remove Programs applate in the Control Panel.

If it is unable to detect the modem at all the modem might be damaged (which might have happened when you removed it).

If it still does not connect after you reinstall it try to query the modem. You can also do this from the Control Panel.

1. Open the Control Panel and double click the Modems icon. If necessary, click the Modems tab.
2. Your modem should be listed. If the modem is listed as a Standard Modem, you may need to consult your modem documentation or computer manufacturer to install proper drivers for the modem.
3. Highlight your modem and click the Properties button.
4. Click the Diagnostics tab.
5. Click the Query Modem button.
6. If the modem is functioning properly, you should now see commands and responses in the box.
