you can do several things :
-if the modem is faulty, replace it
-check in device manager for exclamation marks, and fix them.
-is the modem properly installed? maybe you need an updated driver , pick one here :


--you can check the system integrity by running sfc /scannow from the run box; have the cd ready !
other than that, it could also be malware, if that is suspected, i suggest running ALL these in safe mode :

You could try uninstalling the drivers, move the hardware to a different slot, and then reinstall the drivers.
