Windows XP normally picks up the modem and installs its drivers it knows what brand the modem is and has a vast selection in store. You said you checked the hardware and there was no info I imagine that was in the systems folder where the device manager is?. Did you query the modem in the diagnostic and still had no info.....are you sure the modem is in the computer it may have been removed???

Installing Windows 8

Have you check the hardware compatibility on the Computer? There is a minimum spec requirement to run windows 8. Is it a 32 or 64 bit windows 8? The HP A720N was available for sale in Sept. 1, 2004. I doubt if it will run win 8. The Ram and Graphics are going to be a big issue. Take a look at this Min. Requirements: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/system-requirements If you can, return Win 8. Looking at your specs, I don't think you can run Win 7? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/system-requirements Perhaps Vista.

HP USB Modem does not break dial tone

If the information connected to your post is all correct (56k V90 usb), and you are using one line for both the internet and the fax, you should hang up from the internet before you try to dial out the fax.

You have not indicated your PC model, so I don't know what operating system you are using. For XP and newer versions, you have to set up and configure the fax using the wizard or configuration software. If you have not done that yet, you need to.

In xp, go to start, Programs , Accessories , Communication , Fax , and then click Fax Console.

You said your computer is new. Win 7 and Vista are much the same:

1.Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.

2.At the bottom of the left pane, click Fax, and then click New Fax on the toolbar to launch the Fax Setup wizard.

3.Click Connect to a fax modem and follow the instructions.


You also need to make sure that your fax/modem is correctly listed in the control panel. In XP, start, control panel, printers and devices. If you do not have a fax printer listed, you need to "install a local fax printer."

The installation wizard should work in both OS without much trouble. If you do have difficulty, Microsoft and adobe both have "virtual printers" you can use. Look in Microsoft office or online.

Also check control panel of 7 to make sure that your modem and fax are listed correctly. Thanks for using Fixya.

Problem installing Advanced D&D Core Rules 2.0

Try going to My Computer, and seeing which drive the disk is in. It will say something like "Dungeons&Dragons(F:)". Then take that and click Start, Run, and enter that info. If that doesn't work, right-click the drive in My Computer and select "Explore" and look for something like "AutoRun" or "Install". Hope that helps.

I have just purchased a Deskjet D1560 ptinter,I am a bit of a novice and have an old computer it is a Windows 98 can I use this printer on this computer and also what kind of USB cable do I need?

Drivers for Win '98 may not be available for this printer. Checked HP's website online manual. Nothing is said about support for Win '98. Options- upgrade your computer to Win XP (you might need some hardware upgrades, RAM, Hard disk etc.). Purchase a new or newer computer. There is the possibility you might be able to use drivers for an older HP Deskjet, such as the DJ694 or DJ8xx series. Drivers are downloadable from HP's website.

USB cable: First, do you have USB connections on your machine? If you don't know what they look like, look online, or a computer store salesperson could show you. It is possible your Win '98 machine doesn't have them-

HP Printer Conflict

Perform a clean and "No bloated" installation of the hardware.
Uninstall ALL the HP printer software, disconnect the PSC and reboot the computer.
When windows finish to load, connect the PSC again, the new hardware wizard will show up, follow the instructions with the HP Installation disk in the drive.
IMPORTANT: When a silver sand glass show up in the screen, CANCEL the installation of the HP software (this is by clicking "CANCEL" button or by no accepting the license terms). This will install only the PSC Drivers and nothing else.
Try printing again.

Problem while installing driver for BearPaw 1200cu

This scanner was designed for 95/8/ME - operating systems
The processor in the scanner is driven by DOS commands from the computer.
Your computer is XP which is NTFS system.
When the changer overcame Mustek and other posted cludges that were supposed to convert DOS to NTFS - none worked.
You have one last chance.
Go to My computer /programs/accessories/Program Compatibility Wizard- and rest the system to run as Win 98 for the Mustek software.
If that does not work - New scanner.
