Hi all...well maybe someone here can help me. I have an integrated motherboard. this board works fine with win 98. when I dual booted with win2000, 2000 did not see the onboard modem. I researched this, and i found that the modem is not compatible with pro. I went out and purchased a us robotics modem...worked fine when i installed it and disabled the onboard modem jumper.(on both operating systems!)
problem......then i wiped everything..and decided to just have win2000 instead of dual booting with 98.
when i finally finished the install, win2000 did not see the us robotics card. This card is definitly compatible with pro. Do you think that i should update the bios? I know that i need the bios number that flashes at startup...but where do i go to get the files if this is what i need to do?
Thanks, I would appreciate the help
