Default *REPS* Dialup modem not functioning after XP installed

Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh, UGH!!!!! Just when school starts and I might actually need to have internet access, I decide to uninstall Vista and put XP on my laptop. (It's pretty fast now, too) Now I can't connect to the internet at home and have to go to the library which is closed at weekends (where I am now)



Unavailable - device missing? I downloaded this driver for the modem too and it's still not functioning correctly. Any ideas? I'm sure the modem is there because I used it last night but I also noticed this morning before I removed Windows Vista, it said a device attached to the computer isn't functioning properly or something when I tried to connect to the internet and it got to the 'Registering your computer on the network' stage.

Reps for help.

try uninstalling in the device manager than enabling it again, and reinstall the drivers as well

Nothing has been disabled in the bios inadvertantly has it? ie the modem. It isnt a plug in card modem either is it? if so make sure its in ok. Guess u need to reinstlal it a few times to see if itll force windows to pick it up, sometimes i find installing drivers in safe mode helps as well ,so if anything is interfering with it innormal mode this will normally be disabled in safe mode.
