The two drivers you are missing a probably Audio and VGA.

Go to a command prompt and type ipconfig /all and post the results. Then I can see what is happening.

I would think the PCI slot detection would be part of either the BIOS or included in Microsofts O/S . That's if I understand you correctly that its not the specific PCI Modem you need driver for its the slot's on your motherboad that are not being detected ? If this is the case yopu need to open the BIOS and go thru the settings and make sure that these slots are not disabled if they are you need to enable them and reboot the PC ! A little more info about the version of your BIOS,Motherboard etc ! If you download freeware app Bell-Arc Advisor it will list all the information about your PC including what BIOS version you have and the make and model # of your motherboard !
Good Luck ,Nick

Its not a Dial Up Modem, it is a DSL external modem. The drivers he is missing are the ones for the NIC Card in his computer and the first poster was on target that you need to down load them from the website.

I know the drivers are not there. That is why I asked you to post the results of ipconfig so I can see what is happening. There is a lot of information there that will indicate where to go next.
