well i got a creative v.92 modem like a week ago, (couple days before going to russia) it was working fine, then my pc started to not post sometimes and then any time it would post it would get a blue stop screen in windows, i took the modem out and when it does post it goes into windows fine, no problems, but sometimes it doesnt even post it doesn't even beep just has the hdd and on leds on and freezes at the post screen. i tried replacing the cmos battery no luck. i will go replace the modem no probs but my pc is still acting up any clue? but

This is for that error message when setting up XP. Maybe it might be something similar.

O & get a tripod. I can't make that 2nd attachment out at all. :p

Had this with the same tip>>>

"try disabling the pagefile"

I've lost my trust in modem cards a long time ago - kept getting weird IRQ conflicts - like soundcard in slot 1, modem in slot 2 and it works, then it doesn't work, switch the cards and it works, then later on it doesn't work anymore and I switch them again... ah well, endless cycle - after switching to external modems, no problems at all anymore - since the existing ports already have IRQ's connected to them I bet... I've handed this option to a friend some years ago (although I was shocked to see that the modems in Ohio were twice as expensive as here in Holland) and it solved her problems...

ok sometimes it posts and says unworkable cpu and the cpu speed is down to 1250mhz from 2083 hmm could my cpu have gotten screwed by my modem? btw i have the latest bios for my mobo nf7-s v2.0
