Default Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 error

I've got myself into a right old pickle with my laptop.

A few weeks ago i updated win 2000 pro to service pack 4. During this it appears i had lost a few essential files in the process so i could not reboot. After agonising i decided to just reinstall the OS as did not have loads saved on it.

Well i have done this but now don't seem to have much left. Its installed win 2000 pro but i cannot get connected to the net. It does not detect the internal modem. Also i seem to of lost most of the MS office software - word, excel from the desktop but i can open them from the C:\ drive.

I do not have any toshiba disks as it was secondhand

Stuck !

Can anyone help/suggest what i have done.

Sounds to me like you didn't reformat!

You've lost word and excel cause you gotta install it....when you format you're deleting everything. You gotta install drivers for your network card before it'll work. Without any install disks for your mobo drivers, network card drivers, AGP Slot drivers,'re kind screwed unless you can go to a friends house and download the appropriate drivers....start looking up your mobo info for that.
