    I have a PC which has a PC-Chips M755-LMR Motherboard with a CNR modem. for some reason Windows does not detect the modem. I checked in BIOS to make sure it was turned on in there and there is no such setting. I then took out the CNR modem and tried a PCI modem, which XP also did not pick up. Does anybody have any idea why Windows wouldn't pick up either of these modems? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You might try downloading and installing drivers for that modem. http://www.ecsusa.com/downloads/drivers_modem.html
    Look at the model number of the modem and choose the correct drivers for XP. If it's not listed here (I only had the CNR to go by) then try a search with the model number and you may also be able to get away with Windows 2000 drivers.

    I have a similar modem and have the driver files on disk - but i think im losing the plot on this... Im trying to set this modem up so i can fax from my pc...

    Device manager shows its not installed... And as the OP has said XP isnt picking it up as a plug and play.... (which i understand isnt unusual for CNR ported stuff)

    anyways...

    Im struggling to install these drivers / not sure how to.

    I have :
    7 SY_files
    1 setup information file
    1 EX_file
    1 Video CD movie file (???? seems odd to me - but thats what it says)
    1 application extension file (a .dll dile)
    1 application file (uninstall application)

    Could someone point me in the right direction please?

    Thanks
