PCI Slot 5 (PCI bus 1, device 7, function 0) IN DEVICE MANAGER THERE IS A YELLOW QUESTION MARK NEXT TO PCI MODEM.EVERYTHING SEEM TO BE WORKING NORMALLY BUT WHEN I START MY COMPUTER I AM BEING INFORMED...


If you don't need the modem, you can safely disable this questionmarked device in Device Manager, so it does not nag you every time you start Windows.

As far as the disk is concerned, you may try going to Disk Management (in XP you right click My Computer and choose Manage, a Computer Management window will show Disk Manager will be on the list near the end).
Study the list of volumes listed in Disk Manager; if you see a volume of more-or-less the same capacity as your ext. disk, and without a drive letter assigned, than right-click that volume and choose Assign / Change Drive Letter. Choose a letter farther into the alphabet so it doesn't interfere with any existing volumes - my favorite is X: for eXternal :) - and confirm.
After that operation the drive should appear in My Computer.

I think you've not installed the modem driver. Go to device manager, check for modems and find if modem is displaying and its driver is installed.

If not install the modem driver, then it'll start recognizing the modem.

Hope it worked for you. Thanks for using Fixya. All the best.

Code 10 problem showing in on modem(device manager)


that is a problem with your DIAL-up modem which is the old style, use your phone and dialin type of internet connection. so basically if you're on high speed you dont really need it, you can right click and disable. if the modem is in a desktop in a pci slot, you can actually just remove it all together. code 10 means the device wont start either due to hardware failure or bad drivers...but again, its a dialup modem and oyu're on highspeed so you dont even need it.

Cannot connecet wireless adapter to pc


Open a command prompt. Do this by either clicking Start, then Run, then typing cmd and clicking OK, or find it on the Start Menu under Programs=>Accessories. It will open a black window. Leave this window open because you'll be typing a few commands into it.

The first one is devmgmt.msc. Type "devmgmt.msc" (no quotes) and press Enter. Device Manager will open. Expand Network Adapters. Do you see your adapter? Does it have a yellow exclamation point on it? If so, you either need a driver or there's some kind of resource conflice/hardware problem. If you don't see it under Network Adapters, you need to install the driver.

If the driver's installed, are you using any software to manage it? Generally, I find that using the Wireless Zero Configuration service with XP (you didn't specify the operating system. You should do that next time) works best in most situations, which isn't to say that it's not flaky. Anyway, back in the black box, type "net start wczsvc" (no quotes again; you'll get it). You should see a monitor icon with 2 green curves next to them in the taskbar, on the bottom-right of the screen. Double-click that. Do you see any wireless networks? You might get a message saying that something else is managing your adapter. Make that stop. How you do that depends on the management software you're using, but there's probably an icon by the clock that you can right-click or something and disable. Once you get that sorted, back on the Wireless Zero Configuration utility, you might have click "View Wireless Networks" and/or "Changed Advanced Settings," then go to the Wireless Networks tab and check the box that makes Windows manage that wireless device. Anything yet?

If not, remind yourself that computers are fun, and they enhance your state of Being. Feel free to swear and curse it, and even the Four, Noble Truths if you're feeling verbose (I seem to be). If none of that works, you might have to post telling what didn't work.

Or get a cable.

Can I add a NIC card to my compaq presario pc sr5250nx? I keep loosing my internet connection every five minutes and have to reboot the computer to reconnect


you should be able to
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00840496.pdf

if your system is still within warranty I would think twice about opening the case yourself to installing a new network card.. you will be voiding your warranty.. so think about it

another thing i would try before deciding on going for another network card is to check your onboard network adapter has updated drivers... or you may want to reinstall the drivers for that adapter.. either one of those may probably fix your issue assuming is not a hardware failing given that your system may not be that old.... make sure you check the windows update and look for any new hardware driver for your network adapter that may be avaliable through windows update.

before you install your new network pci card you may have/want to disable the one on board going into your bios for that. so to ensure there's no resource conflicts when installing the driver for your new card (it may not be a problem even if you don't but if you run into problems while installing the new card consider this suggestion)

Installing modem


By the looks of your question, it appears you may have an internal PCI modem. If that is the case, please state your PCI modem brand and model. You may have what is called a WinModem or "softmodem" because they were usually US Robotics modems made strictly for windows. They are known to be buggy with their software drivers and hard to install but not impossible. Since softmodems use your CPU's power one solution would be to change to an external modem (since they have their own processor) and save yourself some headaches later on.

Thanks.
