Default modem use crashes all

Tried two different pci modems with correct drivers, each of which has worked in different machines. In each case they installed mishaplessly, repeatedly, with plenty of reboots and uninstalls betweentimes. Tried installs from Plug and Play; New Hardware; Modems: /Start/Run. In each case the Diagnostic test in My Computer/modem crashes/hangs system with no response to Alt-Cntrl-Del. Same results when attempting to use either modem outright in juno email . Tried installing appropriate generic 33.6 modem bypassing plug and play; this time the Diag program finishes ok, reporting possible problem with ports-irq. Fiddled interminably in Port resources with these latter variables to no avail............. any ideas ? Thanks Very Much ! Ed

msi motherboard w/ no onboard modem; numbers at home; sorry, I'm at the library, so far ..... lan and soundcard off in bios;
1.47 amd; 640mb sdram; dell monitor; turtle beach soundcard -pathology occurs regardless of its presence; trackball mouse; 160 mb western digital; 40 mb seagate; msi cd-dvd rw;

could be a virus damaged OS or a bad install of windows. try other slots in the pc in question if possible or if you haven't already.
