You can try downloading and reinstalling the drivers for the card. Take the name of the modem which should have been given in device manager and go to the manufacturers website and download the drivers and install.

If that doesn not work and your modem is a Card device, open your computer and check to see if the modem is inserted correctly.

If the modem has been installed from the start, try to search your recovery CD (hopefully you will have it) for the modems drivers there.

My pc infected by virus (registry, trojan, p.let). which i can't ftp,change my ip add,locked some my prog etc. so i want to format my pc and restore it ASAP.

if the virus infected most of your files & programs, and REFORMATTING is the best solution, but you'll lost everything. But if you're going to make a BACK-UP of everything, then virus will have it's back-up copy as well; so if you do have a licensed anti-virus better call the anti virus support number for them to manually removed the virus on your pc.

The sound is not working on my webcam, i have made sure that the driver is installed and everything, and that it is enable in the properties of the volume control panel.

Try setting up your audio from the beginning - I dont know your computer set up ( desk top with add-on speakers or laptop with built in speakers or your OS ) So I will give you a general example using :-
Laptop with built in mic x webcam with built in mic x Vista OS x Yahoo Messenger

If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access some of your hardware ( speakers and mic ) from the Control Panel.

Right click on speaker icon in System Tray
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

Click "Recording" tab.
To set required mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click OK
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays
Restart computer

Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

Click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Calling and Audio
Set mic and speakers to show Default equipment
Run call up assistant to test audio equipment > Apply > OK

Check your security settings in the Internet Options control panel, and your privacy settings also. If you are newly using IE 7, the default settings will prevent you from downloading and installing. In IE7 click the tool menu and then click internet options, or you can click start > control panel > internet options.
You might also want to check your firewall settings. Also located in the control panel.
