USB Modem doesn't work on acer Laptop

I have an old Acer laptop w/ Windows 2000 O/S. Bought from ebay. Put in a new H/D as old crashed. Works well. However, tried to install 56K USB Modem (Dynex) and use Manufacturer's driver, and it looks like it will install, then the last screen, says data invalid or similar message, and doesn't install. I tried two other modems (Hawking) and their drivers and get same error message. What to do??

    I did select the windows 2000 driver. One other tidbit: it used to be XP O/S and my father replaced the HD with a new one, and installed Win 2000. Is that an issue??

    Yes, the driver came with the modem, NIB.

    If the driver came with that model modem, and the original computer ran on Windows Xp then the driver yo installed was for Xp not Windows 2000. Please give us the brand and model of the modem , if it did not come with that model computer. Thank you. If it did come with that model, it seem to no longer be supported by Acer.     Sorry. You can download the win 2000 driver for the  520 model which may be the same as the 527,and try that?

    Below in the link to the Acer site.I could not find the above model number?

    The Windows 2000 driver should work . No the Xp being on their has no effect now. Is that driver made for the brand of modem in the computer now?

  • Thomas F. Schneider May 11, 2010

    You have to use the windows 2000 driver made for the model modem that you are using. If that particular model does not have a windows 2000 driver available, then you may not use that Brand and model modem..

I bought a new acer aspire 5630 laptp battery but it is not working when fits into, whereas when I put it on the old battery it works on the power as the old battery is fully exhausted. Someone told me to...

What I believe they were mentioning is Flash the BIOS to the most current version, which should on the Acer support site ( or such)
If the old battery wasn't charging and the new one doesn't either then there also may be a hardware issue with the charging circuit if the BIOS flash doesn't resolve, at which time you discuss that issue with Acer if under warranty.
