>>XpUser4Real yours is the only post in this thread that mentions a modem. Off topic?<<
Not really. Boy this is a touchy post I guess. A 'faulty modem' has stopped a PC from booting up before. In fact, it happened in one of my repairs where the COMPAQ logo just hung up on start up..after I physically removed it the PC booted up fine.
