Not sure if this is Hardware or Software but im putting it here as the Hardware people are far smarter than those Software losers
Mate has a 600Mhz AMD piece of shit. He completely fooked it up with spyware adware and such to the point that it wouldn't even load.
I format it and install Xp and everythings fine but his NTL Cable modem doesn't work anymore. He doesn't have a router, it's just the modem connected to the PC (Via USB).
The Windows Xp wizard just says the device should already be working, if it's not then fook knows.
The modem is this:
Pc spec is something like this:An ntl:home Broadband Internet cable connection requires a separate stand alone cable modem or the cable modem built into your digital TV set-top box. This is dependent upon where you live.
There's no need to worry about installation. Once we have installed the Broadband Internet cable connection to your house either via the standalone cable modem unit or via the digital TV set-top box, we provide you with a Broadband Installer CD-rom and easy to follow instructions for you to get up and running.
Here's what you get:
* Easy to install via USB connection (or optional ethernet card and cable for Macs)
* Attractive compact design stand alone cable modem or set-top box
128Mb of Ram
Inbuilt graphics card (like 4mb)
Also in the quote about the modem it says Install CD, this is just a cd with a program on it to moniter your usage so you don't go over NTL's cap. It installs no drivers or anything.
The Modem shows up in device manager and says the device is working perfectly.
Thanks in advanced
