Need pci modem driver for pavilion laptop model #F4903H
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?

DV7 is not designed for XP, to get around the issue you may be able to change the BIOS setting for the SATA controller to work in IDE mode(depending on the BIOS) or you can use the XP installer option to install a SATA/RAID driver during the installer boot sequence. To offer you this I will need to know the model # and Serial # on the white sticker on the bottom of your laptop or the make and model of the SATA controller.
Try the Bios option and reply back with the requested info if it's not a viable option and I will see if there is an XP driver available for your controller.
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.
