No Wireless or Audio on HP Laptop DV1000, following Boot From Windows OS CD in
Recovery Console:

Initially, I was unable to start up Windows XP and received the following prompt: "Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt C:\windows\system32\config\system\".

To remedy this, I booted the system with the Windows XP OS CD and let the system
boot into Setup and chose to run the recovery console. Then I typed the following
md tmp
copy C:\windows\system32\config\system C:\windows\tmp\system.bak
delete C\windows\system32\config\system
copy C:\windows\repair\system C:\windows\system32\config\system

This allowed Window XP to start up however, my laptop now, has no wireless capabilities and no sound device. I tried to run the HP Application and Driver Recovery DVD to restore sound, but it indicated that the best program for the sound device was already
installed on the laptop.

Need help restoring audio and wireless. Are they available online to download. What is installation process? My hands are tied in utilizing this system and would appreciate feedback if this is possible to remedy or not.
