Actually, this is the second time when the same problem happens. The first time (3 weeks) ago, I bought a PCI modem, it had the same thing. Then I went back to the store to exchange another brand new modem, even change different PCI slot. The same problem always happens. I am knid of frustrated. Anyway, thanks for you guys help.

Acutally, it's in the booting process without loading any operating system yet

I have seen the screen freeze on some when there's no operating system, try booting a bootable floppy.
