Hi:

I have installed a US Robotics 56K modem and whenever I go to shut down my system it reboots.

Have uninstalled and reinstalled the modem. My system has Win98 and Win XP Pro and it does the same in both operating systems.

Thanks,
Ken :D

It only reboots when you're shutting down? Or when you're using the modem?

If it happens in both operating systems, there could be a problem with the modem... but I find the symptoms rather odd for failing hardware.

Try this: go into your BIOS and set PNP OS to Yes, then turn off all of the BIOS power saving functions and see what happens.

Hi Valour:

Changed the BIOS settings but got the same result.

The system only reboots when I'm shuting down. It appears to work just fine all other times.

Should I try different PCI slots?
