I am endeavouring to try and get Above mentioned system up and running, but modem is not reacting, so its seems as I cannot make dial-up connection.

Thr modem that is apparently installed is HSP K56FLEX PNP Modem.

I have tried going the following route:

Start>Control Panel>Phone & Modems>Properties>Troubleshoot

I then dotted off "I have problems using my modem to connect to Internet. then checked off "I want troubleshooter to investigate settings on this computer, and then clicked "Next".

I then went through the route of Device Manager>Performance and Maintenance>System>Modem>Properties. I am then told that this device is working properly.

This decice is "enabled"

Any advice anyone?

Thanks for past help and regards.

This could be one of the few types of modems that just will not work in Windows XP.

Or, more likely, you've got the wrong driver loaded for it. Unfortunately the Device name doesn't say much about the type of modem it is, being generic.

If the modem was truely dead, it wouldn't show up in Device Manager.
