Thanks for your response but my modem is not fried.. I tried it on a nother computer of mine and it worked fine. It definitely has to do with the Com port. I had trouble getting a serial mouse to work on Com 1. I am now using a PS/2 mouse. Modem is connected to Com 2. When the computer boots up. You can see that the signal does go to the Modem but the TR lights just lights up and only goes away when the desktop comes on.
Any other ideas and suggestions?
