Allow it to auto install the driver for the hardware. It's telling you that it requires a driver, either it is corrupted missing deleted, or any of a dozen reasons, two things that are quick fixes prior to spending a couple hours troubleshooting the machine. I assume it worked prior to today, so just do a restore to an earlier time, if the it for some reason doesn't install the proper driver. You can try installing form a disk, if you have the original disk from the laptops motherboard. other wise, go to Start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore, and allow it to restore itself to a date when all was working properly

Installation fail for modem driver v3000 win xp ... I need help !!!

This is a common problem on Compaq's. To fix this you must install the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio, first. Then install the Modem driver. The modem is actually a subsystem of the audio system and rely's on it working correctly to communicate with the computer.

This can be found here: UAA Driver SP32646

The latest version of your modem driver can be found here: Modem SP35335
Hope this helps, Myridom
