Hello guys. I have more problems with my new XP system. So far the questions I've asked have been pretty easy for you, so hopefully this will be too. I had installed XP and the computer did not have a dialup modem. The sound worked fine on the computer, but I couldn't access the internet. (I still have dialup) So, I took the modem out of my old comp and installed it in new XP system. The modem is a modem/sound card? or something. Now the internet works, but I lost my sound. I'm thinking that somehow I need to set the original sound system as the default again, but I dug through the sounds and audio devices box and couldn't find anything to restore defaults etc. Rather than mess with the sound card on the modem, I'd rather just use the sound device that was working before the modem was installed. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

I had the exact same thing happen to me. Windows XP does not support most modem/sound card combo cards like that. If you have room, you need to get a new sound card and/or modem.
