First thing to do is to remove the card/modem and reboot. Does this clear the problem? If so then reinstall the drivers for the card and modem, shut down the PC, replace the card/modem and reboot. If the PC boot OK then problem solved.

The other thing to check is that you have not pulled out any plugs in the case or loosened anything.
