Modem in Compaq computer

I have a "Compaq Prolinea 575" with a bad modem. Will I have to replace it with Compaq modem?

Thanks, NT. I just installed a new modem, and believe it or not it killed the video. I'll take it back, and get another one.

"Killed the modem?" Possible, but you might check to see if you dislodged the video card(if it's separate), very easy to do on some machines. Good luck. chuck
