    You may have to fresh install your laptop hard drive. I hope you have backups. I did the same damn thing on my laptop. I was no able to restore the sound drivers. Also I had not installed Norton Goback or XP Backup.

    I reinstalled from the laptop CD, deleted the bloat-ware and reinstalled all my programs. I also installed norton go back.

    laptops can be a pain to back up because you don't have a second internall hard drive to back up to. I only have a small 10GB external hard drive I use to transfer stuff from one computer to another.

    I think a clean reinstall would be the best bet in your case. If you have any personal files you can move off the laptop, do so before reinstalling.

    Does your Laptop boot into windows? If yes continue reading.
    Do you have an active internet connection? if yes continue.

    Go to manufacturers website and download the drivers...

    urbandragon has the right idea. Generally if you type in google the exact name of the driver that was erased there will be a link to download it. If you have the originally installation cd's the computer came with you can install the drivers from there as well.
