Whenever I wish to connect to the internet, XP reckons that either there is no modem attached to PC or that there is a Hardware failure.
I then have to go in to Control Panel, select the modem which is on COM 2 (US Robotics 56K) which Win XP says is not present, and delete it.
I then need to try and install a modem, whenupon lo and behold Win XP detects my modem and installs it automatically. All is then fine until I switch off and on again and XP has amnesia again!!
