How can I recover the dropped table in ms sql 2005. The thing is I have no backup at all.

No backup = no recovery. If you have absolutely no backup of this database (and if not why not?) then there's pretty much no options for recovering deleted data.

Are you sure there is no backup? Try this query:
  FROM msdb.dbo.backupset a
    INNER JOIN msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily b
      ON a.media_set_id = b.media_set_id
  ORDER BY a.backup_start_date DESC
If you find records here for the database in question a backup has been made at some point. If you find something at all, obtaining the file is also a challenge...
