I finally got my Friends SONY PCG-FX 992L Laptop working with a New
Install of XP Prof.
It was there but laptop wouldn't reboot.
My Problem is I need to get the Conexant 56K Modem Working. I need to
find drivers that will work with XP. The computer Had previously had
Windows 2000 on It. I believe I have the Old Drive [20Meg IBM
Travelstar. But someone Installed a new drive in order to Install XP.
TIA

Google for: "Conexant 56K Modem drivers" and you'll come up with many hits.

But How do you get the Update to Work if the Modem Is not present???
Right now the Modem is Disabled because it did not like the Drivers from the
Win2000 Driver Recovery CD

OK got one to work MODEM is up and running

Mow for anotheNProblem. I set up this 20 GIG Drive as FAT32 but XP uses almost 20
GIG. If I convert to NTFS. Will that save me Space; ie Give me more Free Space???
And can that be done without reloading XP ???????

XP is not using the 20 Gigs, some thing else is there.
20 Gigs is not great for an XP machine, but it is enough.
NTFS will not give you the extra room you want. First find out who is
using what space and clean house.
NTFS will provide more stability, but not really more room.

Yes, once you figure out who is using up all your space, and clean house,
you can convert to NTFS without reloading. There is a command line you can
run. Look in the HELP & Support command on your computer.

Chkdsk Says there is 13.5 gig in Hidden files plus 738,213,888 in files
Does that seem normal for XP
If I reformat and reload as Compact will that give me more room????
