I've been faxing every day for the last 6 months. All of a sudden, my faxes stopped sending. I go all the way through the fax wizard and nothing happends.

I unistalled the fax driver and clicked on the "Install a local fax printer" to reinstall it, but nothing happens. There is no new fax icon for me to use.

I even reinstalled my Compaq modem drivers and still, XP won't let me "Install a local fax printer".

I deperately need the ability to fax...any ideas?

What happens if you use Add/Remove in Control Panel to remove and reinstall
XP Fax?
What happened just before "All of a sudden?"
Error messages?
Event Viewer?

The Add/Remove of the Fax functions in the special Windows components did the trick...everything is working just as before.

FYI, Nothing happed just before "all of a sudden"...I installed no new software, I have no viruses etc. I receieved no Error messages. It just started going "flakey" on me...would fax about 50% of the time, then quit.

Your solution seemed to do the trick. Thank you.

Might want to make sure your modem is on the Windows XP HCL list and using
the latest drivers.
