Vista drivers

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My friend just bought a pc from pc world *cringe* and its got a 56k by the name of Zoom 3090 this is an external modem but theres no drivers for Vista on their site. She also said she phoned up pc world and told them all about it and they said Vista doesnt support external 56k modems is there any truth behind this ?

I also said she could try my Diamond 56i Pro if she wants but i couldnt see any Vista drivers knockin about on the Diamond site. Its just a basic run of the mill PCI jobby though so whats the best way to go about this. She doesnt want Broadband.

Alot of stuff doesnt have drivers for vista, so unless the PC had a vista ready sticker on it than shes kind of out of luck.

She could try calling the maker of the modem and see if they have drivers.

I'd tell her to return it for a refund. All she has to say is "not fit for purpose", so long as all the the accessories and packageing are present.
