okay, before it boots up does it say ANYTHING in the Dos looking screen stating unable to find whatever_file_it_says.vxd? Then, it goes to this screen? Did you reinstall the modem and such after the format? Should of waited to install the modem after the format to see if it functioned normally THEN installed the modem and its software. If so, you maybe seeing something like unable to locate or these files could not be found and you might see vnetsup.vxd, vredir.vxd, and some others. If you do, please post it.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
