I'm a bit desperate now so I'm asking for your help: Everytime I try to dial-up to my ISP, I get an error that says the my modem is already in use (port already open). I've tried an USB modem, a PCI modem and even a PCMCIA and they all give me the same error message. And no, I'm not using Fax so there is really nothing use the modem. The strangest part is if I go in hyperterminal and specify the COM port, everything works. I can issue AT commands, and even dial. I'm using XP Pro on both my laptop and desktop (both do the same thing). Any suggestions?
