    There was an early version of the HSP56 Micro Modem called 56K DAA (Data Access Arrangement).
    Support for these modems was drooped from the current Conexant / PCTel universal drivers for reasons unknown to me.
    These were ARM/CNR or embedded AC97/ACLink modems.

    You can ID your modem using a program that reads the PCI ID number embedded in the modem hardware.

    If your modems ID number looks like this;
    you have the DAA modem.

    A company that sold these modems has an archive of the last drivers released from PCTel for them.
    DriverVer=10/01/2001, 8.00.0031
    Windows 98/ME/NT/2K/XP

    "I even tried all difference slots still the same"
    The current "UniDriverSoftware" driver, from Conexant, supports both PCI and (current) AC97/ACLink modems.
    If this is a PCI modem (PCI add on card) check to see if you motherboard has a embedded modem and disable it in the BIOS.
