"Safe Errors" AND "Modem Terrors"
I have two problems currently striking me at once. First of all, I've got a friend who called me about a problem. The "Safe Errors" as I stated above. When he tries to run scandisk in Safe Mode, after about an hour and 3/4'ths the way, he receives an error
Fatal Exception OE occured at:
0028:C000788E in VXD VMM(01)+000688E
Defrag runs fine, though Scandisk doesn't. I've tried researching the error but I can't seem to find it.
Second error is the "Modem Terrors". I'm currently working on a computer who's modem for some reason doesn't work. I know it's worked before because I was the one who installed it first. However, now, DUN (Dial-up networking) won't recognize it. I've tried 3 different modems, 1 used 2 new, and none of them work. I've tried reinstalling Dial-up Adapter & DUN but that didn't help. I've also changed PCI slots but nothing seems to work. Whenever you try to create a new connection, the Install Modem dialog comes up as though no modem existed. Whenever you check out the "Modem dialog" in the control panel, the modem shows up as do the diagnostics pass. I've removed everything from startup and everything off the mobo but it doesn't help. The modem will also show up in Device Manager. I've also tried going into Safe Mode and removing ANY TRACE of any previous modem. Whether that be in Device Manger, Registry, a file, or within any files hiding on the HD.
