Go to the Device Manager and check the installed drivers and also for any conflicts this can be done as follows:-
Start-Settings-Control Panel.  From the control Panel find the computer icon labeled System and double
click it. Click the device manager button and then click on the + of Modems.  Double click on the installed driver. If no joy go to the Control Panel and double click on the Add Hardware icon and follow the
Wisard instructions.  
Good luck
