Deskpro EN SFF RiserCard / Modem

[ Edited ]

I just reprogramed a C400/6.4/w5 desktop pc. I am setting it up with a dialup modem but am having problems I think with the riser card. For instance on bootup with modem installed, Windows98se detects the riser card and looks for a driver for PCI Serial Controller. Is this the riser card? Do I have to get the riser working BEFORE the modem? Can someone give me a link for specific driver for Spare#314207 (number on riser)

It's not the riser card. The riser is just an extension of the motherboard, not a device in itself. These computers do act funny with some PCI dial-up modems. I don't know why. My LT Windmodem has problems in my EN/SFF all the time. My US Robotics ISA hardware modem does not have these problems in the same computer.

This is a USR 56 k modem 2976. I just got rid of a bunch of ISA stuff not 24 hours ago thinking "why hold onto it for". I have another brand modem I can try. So I dont need a driver for PIC Serial Controller? It's probly the modem doing it?

Actually, it's probably the the chipset driver. Have a look at the Intel website and get the driver that matches your chipset. You might see signs of the chipset number in Device Manager or you might need to look at the actual chips on the motherboard. You probably have something like the 440LX, but it could be the 810. Either one should be supported here:

and here:

I'd link you to the exact page, but I can't seem to get in.
