Is the modem listed in device manager? It may say simple communications device. If not then it is probably not enabled in the bios.

If it is in device manager then delete it and reboot. Windows will find it, put the motherboard cdrom in and let windows find it. It will then make a virtual comm port for the modem.

thanks to all for the input so far, still no further along, simply need to know where to go to get the com port and reinstall it back in device manager, the root problem it my modem will not dial out.
