#530810 - 10th Jun 2011 9:39am Help me out with a Toshiba A100-920
Nobody

Well, it's been a while, but I've come into contact with the dreaded Windows!!!!!

I've been asked to take a look at an old Tosh (how apt) laptop for the tennis club, it was failing to boot and being a general nightmare.

I forced it to boot from CD and did a fresh install of XP Pro and that was fine. But the issue now is that I can't connect to the wireless and I can't connect using a hard wired ethernet cable, the drivers aren't there.

I've searched high and low for them, and tried the Toshiba website too, I downloaded what I thought I needed but no such luck. Ideally, as I'm now in the office, a getting the wifi up and running is a priority as I have Driver Genius Pro and Driver Checker which scans the laptop and downloads and updates what is needed etc.

Vicious circle though, as I can't get onto the internet to do it in the first place!

I used to consider myself quite computer savvy on Windows back in the day but I've used Macs now for about 8 years I reckon and this is the first time I've had to try and work on one.

Last time I used a Windows PC, XP was new! So probably back in 2002?

It's Windows XP Pro SP3 and the laptop specs are;

Intel Core 2 / T5500 @ 1.66GHz / 1GB of ram.

See attached screenshot, if it helps? It shows what I'm missing.

If anyone can help me out today, so I can get this laptop back to them tonight it would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Grab the drivers from here (pick the closest number to A100-920 if that specific model doesn't show up):

Cheers, I'll take a look, although having already tried this, I couldn't get it to work.

Why, oh why, can't they just stick a downloadable disc on the site with all drivers as from the factory!?

Currently just tapping these vendor and product codes in to see which drivers I need. Fingers crossed.

I surprise myself sometimes, I just went to pcidatabase.com and typed in the vendor and product codes as shown above and then googled for the correct drivers.

Why didn't I just in the first place?
