Iis this a PCI modem? If so you may need to install the pci-serial bus driver as well as the modem driver.
What's the make and model of your modem?

You also might try re-installing the drivers again. Im not sure if the regisrty its talking about is the Windows registry or the modems on board S-Registry. If its the S-Registry you may need to get it flashed. (Its alot like doing a BIOS flash). That may correct the problem as well.

IF THIS IS A PCI MODEM TRY ENABLING DOS SUPPORT IN THE PROPERTIES OF DISPLAY MANAGER (WIN95) REBOOT THIS SHOULD ENABLE COM PORT 3 WHICH I ASSUME YOUR MODEM IS CONNECTED ON.
