Error 6: The handle is invalid

Windows XP Professional SP2, US Robotics 5699B PCI modem.
When trying to connect via Dial up modem... Modem dials, gets to Verifying username and password then gives the error "Error 6 The Handle is invalid" and goes into the redial after 60 seconds loop. Unistalled & removed older model modem 5566A, and installed a new modem 5699B and drivers. Still no luck. Doing a Google search I've found other people who have the same problem and also the same error at different times ,but so far no solution. Using my other computer to dial my ISP in no problem. Called US Robotics helpline and via Hyper Terminal was able to connect to 3Com.com. My XP crashed in the past few times until replaced video card, since last major crash I am experiencing this problem. Any ideas?

Hi and welcome to TSG,

You have reported your post in an attempt to bump it up. The proper way to do that is just to post a reply to your thread with the word "bump" in it.

I'm sorry that I can't help you with this problem but this post will serve to bump your thread up for someone else to see it.

Good luck. :)
