Two possible things here:

1) The BIOS (Mainboard hardware controller) has the MODEM setting at DISABLED. Just go into BIOS and enable.


2) The modem drivers are not installed in Windows, so it doesn't really know what the modem is (it could be a soundcard!). Download the drivers for your mainboard make and model number from the manufacturers website.
