My computer will no longer recognize my modem.  It fails to detect when installed.  And when force installed gives error messages that it can not communicate with the modem.
(win98 amd k6 128ram)

Error message 630.  Computer is not recieving a response from the modem.  check that it is plugged in and if necessary turn the modem off then back on.

In "Control Panels", remove any defined modems,
and remove COM2 and COM3 and COM4.
Leave COM1 "as is", if you have a serial-port mouse on COM1.
Then, shutdown, reboot, and let Windows detect it.

Does the BIOS recognize the modem?  It should appear when you boot up under a section entitled "Plug and Play cards" or something like that; it usually appears right after the general system info and before "Starting WIndows 98."  If it is not recognized, check that the card is seated firmly and maybe try it in another slot.

I'm unfamiliar with the model. Is it internal or external.

All of a sudden it stopped working? Sounds like it may possibly be a defective modem.

kmrussell is right.  Your modem is toast.  Error 630 is a hardware failure error.  I've seen a few modems pull out of it (LT Win Modem), but if you've reinstalled both manually and auto and it's still not working, it's history.  Sorry.

Psyc01, congratulations for rudely "butting-in",
and reposting another expert's "comments" as your "answer".

BARTJACH, you can "reject" the answer,
and then invite anybody else to post an answer.

Sorry otta.  Didn't mean to ruffle any feathers, I just know what it's like to waste hours of trying to test out "possibilities".  I figured that posting it as an answer might save him some time.  

bartjach,  feel free to reject.

bartjach,

Are the modem parameters for address & IRQ jumper-configurable, or Plug n Play?

Are there any other serial devices? (such as a mouse, trackball, etc.)
