    Hi

    I think that I give up, I tested it with and with out the drivers, with and without Winfax, I change the slot and restart too.

    So I'm going to buy a new modem more compatible with XP, but I need something that fit on my Intel Mother board but at the same time be compatible with my future system pentium 4 that will have one of the latest assus mother board.

    Any ideas of what internal modem should I go for?

    thanks
