Hi Marv

First of all, have you tried removing the modem from device manager and rebooting to get Windows to redetect and reconfigure?

Has that modem ever worked with XP? Just because Microsoft applies a "standard modem driver" doesn't mean its correct and will work.

Is this the laptop here?

If so, try downloading and installing the conexant modem driver.

That verify port and interrupt business isn't as applicable anymore... that was more for legacy modems. Modems are now PCI devices that use different interrupts and emulate serial devices. The modem driver would likely create a "COM port" for the modem when its correctly bound.
