    u probably just need drivers, search on the internet for the manufacturer of your modem and sound card. Once u find the website see if theres a support section where u can download the drivers.

    If the manufacturer isn't available (usually cos of cheap generic kit) then u will probably have to install a generic/compatible driver for it and cross ur fingers. If thats the case post back here with as much detail as possible about the stuff that isn't supported

    this may sound stupid now but i dont know the manufactoerer name because it was included with comp, and just says standard 56k.

    open up the tower and take a look there will be a model name.

    go to control panel -> system -> device manager (device manager will be in system somewhere, have a look around)
    The components that u haven't installed probably have a yellow or red sign next to them. Those names should do.

    A program called Belarc might help identify your devices. Or you can copy/paste this msinfo32.exe in the 'Run' field...Start > Run...paste, hit ok. Gives you system information.
