I have a Toshiba Qosmio AV 201 with windows xp Media edition. My backup disc would not work after a new motherboard was installed. I bought a fresh copy of Windows xp media edition. It installed, but it is empty, There are no drivers installed. No icons on the desktop. How can I get it to connect to the internet, and get my drivers back.

Before doing all that did you by chance check to see if there was a recovery partition on the hard drive?
The only icon I believe by default that would be on the desktop is the trash can.
Do you have a flash drive that you can put the drivers on and then install them on the Toshiba?

The main download page for all the drivers for your system I believe will be HERE.
You will have to pick your OS from the drop down menu and then everything should show up for the default drivers for the system. Let me know if this is the right system for you. If not i will do a more detailed search for the right drivers. Make sure the first driver you install is the motherboard chipset or smbus driver. That will help everything else be identified right and install correctly.

If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
