Had same problem with a dell I was working on turned out to be one dead pin on power supply. Machine ran fine except for dialing out. Order a pws tester for like 10.00

Windows XP will reboot when there is a hardware problem,check for updated drivers.

Cenck the Device Manager to see if their is a exclamation mark beside the modem if not it may be an IRQ problem,to which you will want to try modem in another slot.

The last option will be to try another modem if possible.
