Hi...Installed an analog modem which turned-out to be defective. Removed it phyically along with associated software. Now, everytime I start windows (W2K Pro) , pc says it's found new pci device (the modem) and attempts to reinstall it- despite the fact it's GONE. Only thing I can think of is that when modem was removed, it took along with it somethng the pc needs o n start-up and it keeps on looking for it- anyone have any ideas?
thanks
