Go to this site and download the clean exe. also open the clean doc it will explain how it works. Try downloading a fresh copy of the drivers to be sure the ones you have aren't corrupt. Then use the clean .exe to remove all traces of your previous installion.

Hope some of this helps.

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe the driver you downloaded is not for the voice modem, I believe the one you need is:

Strange, that is the driver for the data/fax modem, and not for the voice modem. the drivers for the voice modems for Win 2000 are:
PCI http://e-www.motorola.com/collateral/W2K_DFV_PCI_84.40_1OF1.exe

PCI 2
NOTE: Does not use dedicated voice hardware, uses Direct X and the PC sound system.

Finding What Type of SM56 Modem I Have
1. Select Start, Settings, Control Panel from the desktop.
2. Open the Control Panel and double-click on the Modems icon.
3. Click on the Diagnostics tab.
4. Click on the COM Port assigned to the SM56 modem.
5. Click on the More Info.. button.
6. Find ATI7. ATI7 indicates what SM56 modem you have as follows:

ATI7 Text Indicates Your Modem Is
Fax Modem Data/Fax
Speakerphone Modem Data/Fax/Voice
