Try delete the modem in device manager.
Reboot and let windows rediscover the modem. See if that helps.

The diamond shaped icon is a pci enumerator.
Bootup into safe mode. Then look for any modem entries and delete them and also delete the diamond entry.
check to make sure you Don't have any duplicate entries (they only show in safe mode)reboot and see if it reinstalls.

If that doesn't work then try deleting it in the registry. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/enum
Scroll down to modem and delete the entry then see if it will install.

What type and model modem is it??
Is it a plug and play??
Are there any jumpers on it?
If so you will have to set the jumpers to configure it

This is probably a win modem, make sure you have the right drivers installed or get hte latest drivers for you're modem you might be missing the files for the modem but have the drivers for the pci enumerator.

I had the same problem and I tried everything listed above and more to fix it.   In fact it has happened to me twice.   sorgie is right.  Windows is interpretting your modem as a pci emulator.  For lack of a better solution, the final solution for me was to reinstall @#$%@ Windows then reinstalling my modem drivers.
