    It's usually the modem.

    Unless you're using 56K dial-up for an internet connection, don't worry about finding a driver for the 56K modem.

    If the 56K modem is a card in one of the white PCI slots and isn't integrated into the motherboard and you don't need it, you can remove it.

    Did you perchance just recently do a reinstall of Windows XP?

    yes, fresh install. I think it is the non existent floppy . It showed up in dev. mgr. as other,with some others as well. Everything seems to be working now. Some of the drivers did not install. I just disabled and it moved it back to where it was supposed to not be. Thanks for help. All necessary drivers are now installed

    Just to save you some time and grief if you ever need to do another clean reinstall of Windows in that computer.

    Download and save and then burn off to a CD-R the current drivers for all the devices in that computer.

    You can then use the CD-R afterwards to install any drivers that didn't get installed during the reinstall of Windows.

    yes,i need to do some kind of backing up measures. the computer has some issues. probably on its last leg.(mobo)However,i seem to have it runnin pretty good right now. the fresh install fixes alot of issues once u get it all ironed out.Was my first time doing a reinstall. Very time consuming. dont have resources to do much else right now. its nice to have this site to goto. thanks to all who help very much.
