Likely the entire motherboard. Depending on the layout of your laptop, you may be able to remove the modem daughterboard, and then the laptop MIGHT boot up without it. I would not count on this, though. Most of the modem daughterboards in laptops made after 2002 look something like this:

You can probably access it from a panel on the bottom of your laptop. Again, I must stress that very likely the entire motherboard is fried. If it is under warranty, you may be able to have it serviced.
