Hello,

I have problems with Windows XP! Please, could you help me?

The question is the following:

(I don't speak English well. I'm sorry.)

When the Windows XP is initializing, a system error appears: "the system has halted by hardware malfunction".

Then, I need reboot my computer three times, and curiously, Windows XP begins to work without problems.

I think than this problem is ocasionated by the 3Com ADSL modem that I have installed into my computer.

Please, somebody could confirm me this?

Could you facilitate me a web-adress to download an actual Windows XP driver for my modem?

Thank you very much.

Best regards.

Do me a favor. Open your device manager and give me the exact model number of your modem. To get to device manager, go to control panel> system> 'hardware' tab> 'device manager' button. On that page find your dsl modem and post it's complete description.

I've just performed a search at www.3com.com for XP drivers for thier broadband modems.... nothing came back. I suggest you send their tech support an email and ask if XP drivers are being developed for your modem. Also, give them a description of your problem and they may have a temporary fix for you. good luck.

USB DSL modems suck, too many probs, the ones that use an NIC card are way better.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
