Internal Modem Problems with Dial-up

I had a problem with a modem burning up from a power outage, so I replaced it with a modem that was in my Windows 98SE pc. However another problem has arisen with it. When I attempt to dial-up I get and error message indicating "the portable modem is not responding" or something to that effect. If left alone the system will do a "re-dial" until it finally dials up. Of course this can be time consuming and is irritating. Could it be that the modem from the Windows 98SE which is a "Supramax 56i" is not strong enough or turning enough for my Windows XP.

More than likely you need XP drivers for that particular modem.
