I had this Laptop running with XP before, I wanted to reformat but could not find my book for XP with code so I thought Id just put Vista on it, but now it canít find my modem... Unfortunately I can only get dial up where I live and need drivers for my modem. My computer model is Model: CY25 system type: X86-based Iím guessing the modem was built in and came with the laptop. Any help at all would be awesome.
Thank you,

It really looks like you need more memory and a bigger hard drive. I don't know if you can find updated drivers....hopefully someone else can help you out there. :whistling:

Yeah I donít want to get into upgrading it or anything; I just bought a new laptop. I would just like to get this one working so all my friends donít have to use my new one (we all split the internet). the old drivers for XP worked for my sound so maybe the old ones for the modem would work as well I just donít know what Iím looking for. :whistling:
