Default Need help ASAP - 56k modem trouble

Me and a friend have two modems that are not getting read by the motherboard. We have what we think is a faulty modem, so we tried a newer one. The new one is a ZoNet v92 56k. The older one is a US Robotics. When we placed the new modem in the slot it didn't show up as new hardware. We have the disc for it with some drivers, but nothing works. So, we put the old modem back in. This time the old one didn't get read. We tried all the open PCI slots on the motherboard but neither one still get read.

We reformatted the PC with the old modem in place. This time the computer said it was there. So we figured the problem was solved (heh) and put the new one in. Of course, with our luck thus far, the damn thing didn't read. Neither did the old one after we put that back. We put the old one back in the same slot and reformatted once again! This time it didn't show up at all, and still neither one will. What the hell are we doing wrong?
