Hi again Jonathan

I just tried your  string AT &F X1 but it's the same..
i also added "pci=noapci" into kernel boot parameters but it doesn't work..
I'm not sure i understand when i have to pick up the phone..
my phone cable is connected into PC modem output... 
when shall I exactly pick up? my phone is not connected indeed...
..when I launch ATDTXXXXX I hear a click into my notebook but I can't hear
it dialing,
though I set "speaker on" into settings. Into XP mode, I hear the modem
I don't know how to proceed now.....
..if yu need other logs or other info please let me know.....
thanks for now for your kind help.... hope to see the light....
