The drivers, if you have the actual driver installation files, can be copied to some media such as a CD, flash drive, etc. If you are referring to drivers already installed, you can't copy them, you will have to download needed drivers so they can be installed. HP should still have the drivers, however if you install Windows 7, Windows will install many drivers and except for the actual sound driver you may not need to manually install drivers. Windows will only install a generic basic function sound driver and the reason the actual driver will have to be installed.

Back up your user data (pictures, music, word processing files, etc) as that will also be deleted on the reinstall. You can't copy programs, they are like the drivers, they must be "installed" using the programs installation procedure.

The free Belarc Advisor will profile your computer.
