Modem forgotten by XP!

Hi guys - got a crazy problem here!

Whenever I wish to connect to the internet, XP reckons that either there is no modem attached to PC or that there is a Hardware failure.
I then have to go in to Control Panel, select the modem which is on COM 2 (US Robotics 56K) which Win XP says is not present, and delete it.
I then need to try and install a modem, whenupon lo and behold Win XP detects my modem and installs it automatically. All is then fine until I switch off and on again and XP has amnesia again!!

What could be wrong?

Thanks guys

Its the nature of the beast...
Insure the modem is turned on when ya start your system - it'll remember then!
