Question about Acer FM56 ITU/2 (91.AC001.209) Modem
Acer 56 kbps v.92 modem sir, i formatted the travel mate accer laptop...i couldnt install the modem software and couldnt use dial up connection..installation fail exiting before completion....without installation i just select the options for modems in the computer control panel>printers n other devices>phone n modems>modems>add>standard>56000bps modem .....then i connected dial up telling..."modem is in use or not connected or hardware failure"...then i installed my pc modem (motoroala sm56 modem)..n installs well..but showing the same message wen connecting...is it really the modem hardware filur needs replacement of modem or is it a software damage by any virus?...reply soon....
The same problem with ACER Extensa EX 5220!
Everything can be installed (including the SATA trick), but the MODEM will not install. I tried several other modem drivers. NOTHING.
It is just not recognised.
I installed a FRESH WIN XP with SP2 and all other updates. I also installed Fprot and Sysgate Firewall and Spybot S&D.
So there is definately NO VIRUS or TROJAN problem. It is just the fact, that ACER (even though, they have a great site for drivers) does not provide the proper drivers for their 56k bps modems in ther laptops.
What a shame... Even though I now have two ACER models (Aspire 1355 and this one) I think that I made a mistake in buying it. I will reconsider on ACER upon next purchase...

Hello there, sounds to me like a softwere problem. Try downloading the drivers again from the website of the make of the modem. Install them again - if you're getting the same message after, Download anti-virus FREE AVG you can find this at this link for windows: http://free3.grisoft.cz/softw/70free/setup/avg75free_446a965.exe Install this run it on a test see what it says and you may find your problem. if not then you could do a deep clean and fully re-install windows xp - REMEMBER TO BACK-UP ANY FILES YOU WANT TO KEEP BEFORE DOING SO. in the meantime good luck Raverbaby keepin it hardcore!!!!! = (htid) hardcore till i die !
