Try remove/uninstall the modem and then reinstall it. If that still does not work. create a duplicate modem and use that.

Cheers ....

First cause may be of interrupt request (IRQ) conflict. IRQ resources for PCI cards are assigned in the system BIOS. The modem will use the IRQ value assigned to the particular slot, so by changing the slot, you will change the IRQ of the device. Follow the steps to do so: Open the system cabinet. Remove the Modem from the slot. Insert the Modem in other slot.
Delete the entries in the Registry: Click Start, run, type in regedit. Then move to HKEY Local Machine > Hardware > Device map > highlight Serial Com. Delete all ports from registry and restart. You may want to delete ports anyway. NOTE: Backup the Registry, before modifying: Steps to backup the Registry: Click Start, click Run, type scanregw, and then click OK. When you are prompted to back up the registry, click Yes. When you receive the "backup complete" message, click OK.
After performing the above suggested, from the Device Manager select each port and remove.
From the control panel, add new hardware icon, follow the onscreen instructions to add COM ports. Restart the system. If the problem persists, reinstall modem drivers and if possible try installing updated modem drivers.

If your system has an AGP port, make sure that you do not have the PCI modem installed in the slot next to the AGP port. These two slots are tied together and will give you an IRQ conflict. This pci slot is set for video.
