Hello, I need a little help here, I have installed a Win XP pro on to a Toshiba Satellite laptop but have no Internet connection on that computer, though obviously I do have a connection on another laptop, I need to find and load device drivers but have not much idea how to do this and have had problems in the past while trying, any assistance would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Globaljoe,

 

Go here to the support site, enter model or serial number for your laptop  http://support.toshiba.com/

 

Be under driver and downloads, make sure pick the operating system plus 64bit or 32bit. Which device drivers any specific ones you mean, like connected devoce or just internal device drivers ?

 

Do know support has ended for Windows XP.

globaljoe,

 

Your welcome.

 

Try this, go to the start menu button, select "RUN" and type MS32INFO

 

Should be able to see on first page of system information your model number.

 

No model number listed anywhere on this laptop ? What drivers are you looking for exactly  ?
