How to reinstall XP and get driver

Specs: Windows XP, 2.2 GHz / 512 MB
Hope you guy can help me again. Now that the computer works, I need to reinstall xp but before I do that since I dont have original cds (this was bought in auction) I d like to know how I can get the list of drivers I will need and how to know the components of the computer. About a while back someone in this website mentionned an action that I forgot. I had to type somewords into run... and it gave me the video card speed and audio and everything basically. But I forgot it and I know its not msconfig.

Thats my first 2 questions. My next one is I have a xp cd and on the computer we got theres a key on the casing for xp. Will I enter that key when I reinstall it? Thanks because I actually want to reformat so that the old user info and data disappear. Will that suffice? or do I need to do something else prior to reinstall xp?
Thanks in advance you guys are usually pretty helpful !

Is it the Gateway you have listed? All you have to do is go to the Gateway site.

The computer should have a model number or a serial number on it. Go to the Gateway website and get all the drivers. Link below.

nope this is not a gateway. It is a hp pavillion 430. we bought in auction with another computer and othe office supplies. It wasnt working I replaced the power supply. Thats all I have and if you could send me that code so I can see all the spec of the computer (that we type in run) taht would help me to know more about it. thanks in advance. All i know is its a 2.2ghz, 160 gig, 512 mb memory so far.
