First go to the laptop manufacturers website and have a look to see if they support XP with your model laptop, you should be able to download most, if not all of your drivers from there.

If not you need to identify the hardware manufacturers that make up the internal components of your laptop and grab the correct driver(s) from their website (if they continue to support XP).

You can use a freeware program such as SIW to do the hardware identification:

The freeware versions are at the bottom of the page. If you have USB functionality you can use the one without an installer and run directly from a flash drive if you dont you may have to download the installer version, burn to CD then install on the laptop.

Once you are able to ID the hardware Google should be able to help you find the drivers. e.g. ASUS P2-P5945GCX Windows XP driver would bring you to this page:

For curiosities sake what is the make and model of the laptop you are working on?
