    When my win 98 computer says when trying to detect modem says
    cannot find modem on com 1
    What could the problem be as I have a PCI modem installed though I am not sure if it is any good.

    ???

    What happens when you go to modems in the control panel and click on "More Info"? Usually COM 1 is for the mouse. have you looked in device manager to see what's going on?

    Did the modem ever work on this computer? Did you install the drivers for it?
