Hi..

First go to Device Manager and Remove any items listed under Modems. Shut down and restart your computer. When Windows find the new hardware and ask for a location of the drivers,
insert your recovery disk into the cdrom and choose Browse.
Click on the D: drive and click down until you find modem and direct Windows to install from there.

Good luck.
