This is "usually" a driver issue.

Either you need an updated driver for the modem, or the driver did not install properly.

Even though USB is "plug n play" you often need to install the manufactures device driver BEFORE EVER plugging in the USB device.

Start by un-plugging the modem.

Remove the driver.

Install the latest driver.

Connect the modem.

If that does not fix the problem, you may need updated drivers for the USB ports.
Or, a Windows Update.
