Since I don't know what all you've tried except from your description... have you checked bios to see if the modem is enabled? Do you have any software where it can control devices such as the modem, card reader, etc? If so, is the modem enabled in that program?
Any other weird things happening on the laptop... like the date being wrong, etc?

Go to Start>run... type in chkdsk /r, then hit OK. A command prompt window will open stating you can't run it, but will give you the option to run it at next start up. Just confirm "Y" and restart the computer.
Chkdsk will run after start up, just let it go uninterrupted and hopefully it'll find something and fix it.
Another option is to run sfc /scannow. You may need your XP disk, so if you don't have it, don't run it or it could loop on you.
Go to Start>run... type in sfc /scannow, then hit OK. Sfc will run and close if it doesn't find anything.
Note that the commands above have spaces before the "/" (slash). These spaces must be present for the commands to run correctly.
