:-*I have an EMASHINES computer 1000B.  I have Windows 98 and a Standard 1200 BPS modem.  When I tried to connect with AOL 8.0 It can't find the modem. Maybe it's the version of AOL?? I used to have Windows ME version and I had problems and so I cleaned out the computer and reinstalled windows 98.  The computer said ERROR - The modem failed to respond.  Make sure it is properly connected and turned on.  If it is an internal modem or is connected, verify that the interrupt for the port is properly set. /// The port is com1, the interrupt is 4 and it says the identifier is MDMGEN12.  Whatever that means... HELP_... I am not that computer savvy, but I've gotten this far, if anyone can help it would be much appriciated..

First thing, the modem is not configured properly. Go to the "Device Manager" tab of the "System" applet in the Control Panel and update the driver of the "Standard 1200 BPS modem" to the correct manufacturer and model.

Then go to the "Modem" applet in the Control Panel, select the "Diagnostics" tab, then highlight (select) your modem and hit the "More Info" button. This will test communication between the modem and Windows.
