Take the modem out.Then start the computer,go to the device manager and start at the top of the list and right click and update drivers for each item Including the bus,then restart.
Also,If you don't really need dial up,Leave the modem out.
If you do need it,Wait until you have updated all the system devices and then put it back in.
Please rate this a fixya.
