Hi all,

I am about to reinstall XP on a Toshiba Satellite A60-672 Laptop and am wondering if once it is done i will need any sound / motherboard / display drivers etc.

I only ask as I reninstalled XP on my desktop recently and it came with a Driver CD which had a load of stuff on which i needed to run after install, and I dont have anything like that for the laptop.

Cheers

go here and download ALL your drivers for your make and model number and burn them to cd...then after installing windows go to the device manager and update anything with a yellow ! or ? mark...just have the cd in the cd drive when you do this...
