Operating System Version:  Windows 98
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:

I have installed a 56k PCI modem in my sister's computer using Windows 98 operating system. As soon as we try to connect to the Internet, the computer freezes almost instantly, before any sound is heard from the modem dialling out, and we have to hit the reset button to re-start. I've tried changing the connection settings etc to no avail. She has one of those e-mailer phones, but I'm not sure whether this type of phone constantly uses the phone line which would explain why the computer is freezing. Any help would be appreciated.

Did this modem ever work in this system or is it a new installation?
If it worked before, what was the last software/hardware installed before this problem started occuring?

If she is running Win98SE, try a Diagnostics Startup to see if perhaps an app loading during startup is causing this.
