In order to help you further I need the following questions answered:
What OS are you currently running?
Are you connected to a landline dialup or DSL?
Because if you are using dialup, that is your problem right there! Most of the people who are still using dial connections instead of DSL or Cable will have these problems. Technology is evolving so fast that even the phone companies seem to have trouble tell their customers that dialup is a problem because they are not supporting it anymore. They are selling it, but not supporting it because of DSL, FIOS, and cable.
You may want to upgrade, because even if the problem is resolved you will still encounter problems due to the lack of support!

My new pc Dell Inspiron desktop has no modem built in for dial-up internet connection. Im currently subscribing to a dial-up service provider on another pc, how do I connect to the same dial-up service...

You have to configure Internet Connections Sharing on the PC which has a dial-up service.
1. Click Start - Settings - Control Panel - Network Connections, right click on dial-up.
2. Clik on Properties, click on Advanced tab.
3. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box

After that you must connect the other pc to this one via network cable.
If you don'y have network adapters you have to buy them.

Problem connecting to dial-up internet

You have dial up? wow.. well, might not be your computer or phone line. Might be the server your dialing into. Is there a different phone number from a different server you can dial to test this theory?

New hard drive- what to do next

start with the first disc of the OS, then follow the on screen instruction,
usually default is good.
if you have a USB enclosure for the drive(cheap, less than 20$) you can also use the trial version of acronis true image to clone the hard disk to the new one and then installing it without having to reinstall anything.

Cannot connect to the internet

open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.

Modem replacement inspiron 2200

Do you have access to another laptop that you could test the new modem in? Sounds to me like the new one maybe faulty :(

Try uninstalling the old one whilst its in via device manager then shut down and put new one in. If it doesnt detect it then its faulty.

My problem is, that my laptop cannot work anymore its internet connection.

Some questions before we get started: -What operating system are you running? -Are you using DSL, cable or dial-up for Internet access? -If you?re using DSL or cable are you plugging your laptop directly into the Internet provider?s box? What is the manufacturer and model of it? -Have you tested your Internet connection to make sure its working? If it?s a phone line can you dial out, if its DSL or cable try connecting another computer to it. -When you plug your Internet cable into your PC does anything appear or change on your screen? Once you give us some more information to work with we can start figuring out what is going on.
