Modem UNINSTALLS after installing 9600 256MB ?

    I just bought a Radeon 9600 256MB card and having this very strange
    problem. The problem is when I boot my computer more than half the
    time the modem gets uninstalled. The computer just started doing this
    when I plugged in the new 9600 card. When I go to ADD REMOVE programs
    it still can not find it. I do not get this with my OLD NVIDIA card.
    It still does this even after I did a clean install of the Operating
    System. I even changed the slot for the modem twice on the
    motherboard and still no luck. Any clues on how to prevent this?

    Computer Specs:
    AMD 1.1 MHz
    512 RAM
    OS: ME
    40 GB Hard Drive
    ATI Radeon 9600 256MB (3.8 Driver)

    This is mostly a guess, but maybe the modem and video card are sharing an
    IRQ signal or bus or something. Try plugging the modem into another slot.

    As stated above in my orginal post I have already tried that. Any
    other ideas or anyone else have this same problem?
