    Hi I have a HP 6726 Pavilion PC which until recently operated on ME, with the frustration getting the better of me, I have installed a Windows 2000 OS, and XP Office. I have difficulty getting the printer and modem working.

    The printer is a Deskjet 840C & the modem is a Conexant, (manufacturer Aztech). I have gone through the Internet Wizard but once it advises me it's going to dial a number, I can't hear anything. Then it advises me "error can't detect modem". Maybe I have the wrong drivers ?

    I would appreciate a little advise on this matter.

    Hi Willmar, welcome to TSG.

    Is the printer USB?

    Have you checked for new drivers for the modem? It may not be 2K compliant......
