Modem says Com 3 is unavailable

When trying to connect via modem, the above error message comes up and suggests looking for conflicts in device manager.

Looking in DM - modem is siad to be working OK, and no conflicts are listed. Com 3 is shown as being available, yet the modem refuses to connect. (properties says it using Com3)

Laptop has Bluetooth and wi fi available, Bluetooth only being used. Running XP home.

Any ideas as to solving this problem greatly appreciated

Uninstall it from within device manager, re-boot and let it install again.
