Help! IBM Thinkpad 755CE modem/soundcard not responding

Help! IBM Thinkpad 755CE modem/soundcard not responding

Post by puritan_20 » Thu, 24 May 2007 01:01:03


The modem in my IBM Thinkpad 755CE also appears to be a sound card.
The self test program says the serial ports and something called a DSP
are fine, but windows '95 says there is no soundcard installed, and
Internet explorer says the modem is being used by another program.

What are the correct settings for the serial ports (ir & DSP - I am
not using ir) in Easy Setup?

Sorry about the off topic post (I know, "eeeeeeeeeeeewwwww *i*b*m*!!!
<gag>") but the ibm pc started out as a TRS-80 wannabe, Tandy sold ibm
clones, and there are nice, friendly helpfull people on this group. I
posted to a bunch of ibm groups already but who knows what evil lurks
on strange newsgroups? (I already deleted the Shadow...maybe that's my
problem...good greif, this thing really is driving me nuts...ok,
enough rambling...)

I got an ibm thinkpad 755ce and I am trying to get on the internet.
The rom based diagnosics say the DSP and serial port are fine, but
windows '95 can't open the modem port and Internet Explorer says the
modem is being used by another dial-up program. There is no other dial-
up program. I.E. and My Computer both say the serial port is not
responding.

HELP!
