Without drivers, the OS would not be able to understand the results produced by the hardware which would result in malfunctioning. A modem is a device that modulates and demodulates various signals for Internet connectivity. All computers require a modem to connect to the Internet and your PC comes preloaded with a high performance modem. This modem is capable of supporting very fast connections without any errors. The modem on your HP Compaq 8100 Elite PC requires specific modem drivers. Users installing modem drivers are advised to install the modem drivers when the system is in the safe mode as this would reduce the chances of errors coming up as a result of driver clashes. Users must also reboot their systems after modem installation. It is also recommended that users should create a restore point before installing the modem drivers so that even if issues come up after installing the modem driver, the system can be rolled back.
The following points give users more information regarding some things to be kept in mind while installing modem drivers on HP Compaq 8100 Elite PCs:
