Well, I've never heard THAT one before, but I would make absolutley sure it's not phone lines before I tore into the computer. Did they also test the line with the modem unplugged from the circuit?

Try plugging the modem into another phone jack outlet and see if the problem is still there. I have heard of this before but almost everytime it turns out to be in the lines rather then the computer.
