a530n problem with system recovery

I reinstalled the OS to windows XP-Pro. Now there are no drivers for the ethernet controller, multimedia controller etc.

I want to use the F10 system recovery at the start up with the hidden partition thing. On the start up screen I keep hitting F10 but nothing happens...

I don't have any of the HP tools anymore, is there a way to get the F10 working?

I don't want to order recovery discs from HP..

Hi Michael,

Once you make a clean installation of the OS, you will lose even the recovery partition from the hard disk. Now we will have to manually install each and every drivers. Check in device manager and let me know all the devices that has problems with.
