I have an Acer model 5520 notebook that came with Vista operating system. I don’t particularly like Vista and it won’t run most of my other software like Word/Partition Magic etc. I have a copy of Winxp Media Center that’s not being used on anything else so I installed it on the Acer. Everything went ok and seemed to be working correctly until I installed AOL and it could not find the modem. I brought up Device Manager and sure enough there was not a modem listed. I thought the driver might be missing. I had noted what modem was installed when Vista was running. It was a HDAUDIO SOFT DATA FAX MODEM WITH SMART CP I looked it up on the web and downloaded driver CONEXANT HD AUDIO SOFT DATA FAX MODEM DRIVER 7.60 and placed it in Windows/system32/Drivers. Rebooted but still no driver appears in the device manager or aol.

I can’t go back to Vista because no disk of the program was provided and although I made a backup when I initially fired it up the recovery program won’t work. Anyway I don’t want to use Vista anyway. What can I do to get the modem into the system? Did I put it in the wrong place? Does Winxp Media Center have anything to do with it?

Please don’t suggest contacting Acer. They are of no help with much of anything.
Thanks for your help.
