Hello Sang2k and welcome.
That is odd. You say you removed the old modem, have you removed the drivers for it as well? With both modems out, boot into SafeMode and remove everything modem in device manager, restart, shut down, install new modem and try bootup.
When you say it won't power up. Do you mean "Boot up" or literaly "no power?"
