Put in a new hard drive and installed Win XP Pro. The laptop can't install the modem for the PCI Modem. Where can I download it at no cost? I have 2 laptops; one the model #F4903H and one has the model # F4683H. I need the drivers for both of the modems, can you help?

I see you re-installed Windows on the machine with Win XP Pro 64bit but you are having issue with the driver as mentioned.
If I may ask before you installed win XP 64bit did you have win XP 32bit?
If so then try downloading a driver for a 64bit version to make the Modem driver work, having an Incorrect version of the driver will really not show up in device manager, and make sure the driver you are downloading is the correct driver.
You did not mentioned the Brand of the Machine or Motherboard that you have and the modem that you need a driver for is that a built in Modem on the Motherboard or is that a modem external provided by your Internet Provider.
Ok, the modem is a simple one. You need to manually install it. Right click on MY COMPUTER, PROPERTIES, HARDWARE, DEVICE MANAGER. Right click the PCI Communications error icon and click HAVE DISK. Scroll down and select the Lucent Win Modem and ignore any error messages and load that driver. You should be good to go. As for the audio, I'll have to send that to you via another account as gmail and sbcglobal doesn't allow the sending of EXE files. The subject line will read DV1000 sound driver.
driver should be on teh vista CD.
open the CD with explore, go to drivers>> and select the dirver you need and copy the folder to the hard drive.
install the device, direct the brower to the device driver folder on the hard drive.
I found the problem to be a rather simple but frustrating one....when is an HP dv1000 not a dv1000....almost always!! You cannot get the correct downloads based on the model number on the tag. You must specify the PRODUCT NUMBER on the HP download site from the tag, not model. You can enter the general DV1000 and get to the download page and look for the entry "Not your Product?!" Follow that link and enter the PN from the tag....download those and you will get drivers that work with your unit. My "DV1000" was actually a DV1660!!!!
Because of anti-piracy laws you will not be able to use your XP on the laptop. You will need to buy another xp to Install. Win 2000 pro is very prone to blue screen and crashes. You will need to re-install win 2000 pro.
When you buy and install xp it will reformat (wipe) the hard drive for you.
I bought a cheap Compaq laptop that came with Vista Home Premium. The speed was horrendous! Anyway, I received the same no hard drive found error. To solve the problem, I went into the system config (BIOS) by pressing F10 on startup, and turned off SATA hard drive support (its supposed to make the hard drive run faster), I rebooted, inserted my Win XP Pro disc and viola, it detected the hard drive. I would say that the laptop runs a good 40% faster than before. Vista is a big no no when it comes to low end laptops built for word processing and internet browsing.
