Has anyone out there upgraded from w2k pro to XP pro and then when u try connecting to the web using a BT ISDN (PCI) modem you get dialling and then a black screen as the PC reboots itself!!

Nice touch i thought!

Any ideas?

Have so far tried installing new drivers etc etc, but nothing seems to be working, other than that its fine, have also tried connecting to the web using a hayes modem and that did the same thing!!

Also, has anyone got an opinion on whether updating is the best way to go rather than a fresh install, obviously there is a lot more to put back with a fresh install

Because of the automatic restarting, you are unable to see the STOP error on the blue screen (BSOD). Go to Control Panel > System > Advanced > Third Settings, and uncheck the automatic restart.

Try connecting with BT ISDN, then your Hayes Modem. Take a note of the STOP errors it shows you and the file (if any) causing the conflict.

And, yes, it's true that a fresh install rather than an upgrade will ensure a problem free installation. While there is a lot of software to put back on, its well worth it. :)
