    Device Manager, Other Devices, PCI Modem

    The PCI Modem has the yellow exclamation mark. How do I fix it? I have tried the update driver option but it did not work.

    You need to get the drivers.... Check on the card itself for a make and model. You can usually google it and find drivers. The update driver option rarely works...

    With modems you can sometimes get away with installing the generic drivers.
    Sometimes.

    If that doesn't work, open the machine up and see what information you can get.
    If you can't figure out the make/model then look for a chip with writing on it, write down what is on the chip and google that.

    I think they do have modem drivers in there.
    The packs are set up to be integrated in a Windows installation CD, but I'm sure you can pick out the driver you need and use it.

    I've also seen it be stubborn and not install until the sound drivers are installed first
