  2. Try sticking it in another slot; problem might just be in motherboard

    A bad or shorted modem can block the PC. Return it to the seller or
    discard it.

    This is mostly caused by a defective modem. You can try it in another slot
    to see if it is the mother board. Most likely you will have to replace the
    modem.

    Pci dial-up modem blocks the PC when inserted
    below is the pci pinout and the card uses B/A 1-62

    do you think the cause is a short circuit on some of the power / other
    pins?

    Test for shorts on the supply rails with a DMM. I've seen many shorts
    caused by tantalum filter caps.

    Otherwise it may be that one of the chips is hanging up the PCI bus.
    This could be the result of a lightning strike.
