Two possible things here:


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

-or/and-

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.
