formatted hard drive, now no modem

I just formatted my hard drive last night, now the computer does not see my modem. It has gone through the tests on the commports, and no luck. Any suggestions?

What have you done to troubleshoot it? Have you tried to physically remove and reinstall the modem?

What OS? Does device manager see the modem? Perhaps it needs the correct driver?

Thanks for all the replies. I got it going last night. I just uninstalled it completely. I booted it once, then again after reinstalling. This time it saw the driver. I am happy now. Thanks.
