You should be able to get them directly from HP.
\015\012First make a note of your system info. Press ctrl + alt + S and you'll get the information needed (which includes model and number, sku #, etc.)
\015\012Take this with you and get on an internet connected computer, go to www.hp.com/#Support
\015\012enter your information and navigate to the download page for the drivers for your motherboard, as well as any other hardware drivers or firmware you need, and download it and burn it onto a cd. Then you can install it on your reformatted drive, by extracting the files and running the executables from the desktop.

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all.
