  1. Smart Link 56K modem

    i had it installed working and then i decided to update it

    and now Device manager says i have 2 modems

    when i uninstall it and take it out of the case, it still says one is plugged in

    any idea of what to do?

    going to the registry? reinstalling windows (i just did on that computer yesterday surprisingly)?

    if you want, you can delete it (or both, then reinstall) through device management. I see no harm in doing so.

    yeah but the dialer on the speakers goes double the volume, sounds like the speakers are gonna break lol

    i found the driver online and it was a setup file (i unstalled it afterwars thou)

    could this be the reason? i just feel very stupid with this whole modem situation

    the only good side its that its an old computer that i prob wont use
