zoom modem problems

Is there anyone else having problems with the Zoom 5510 USB modem on WinXP. After correctly installing the drivers my system has become very unstable and crashes at least once every day or so, usually on startup, but sometimes in the middle of a game. The error is on a blue screen and says DRIVER_IRQL_LESS_NOT_EQUAL.

Before installing this modem my system was fine, any suggestions.

RE: zoom modem problems

I have had some troubles installing a Zoom modem on my Windows XP system. After installing, my PC will not shut down..it just keeps rebooting unless I press the power switch. I also get a blue screen of death occaionally on start up! There don't seem to be any specific XP drivers for these modems, despite the claims by Zoom that existing drivers will work.

I get that too on Windows 2000.

I have checked for updated drivers, but nothing.

John, Martin
I get both of your symptoms. According to Microsoft the blue screen is because the drivers are not XP certified. Its frustrating. There seems to be no prospect of XP drivers from Zooms website.
