Default Desperately Need Driver Help!!!

Hey, I know I haven't been around at all for the past week or so, and thats because both of my computers died and aren't in a position to want to work at the moment, so for now I'm on my dads computer and am trying to atleast get my laptop up and running.

So I decided to take of that trash they call vista and put XP on my Toshiba Satellite a215-s4697 laptop. The thing is once I installed XP I couldn't get on the internet, wether or not it be through my wifi card or an ethernet. It doesn't recognize a wifi adapter in the device manager and the ethernet controller doesn't have drivers installed. So I can't get onto the internet to get all the drivers I need which is a real pain in the you know where. I've looked around for these but couldn't find any, so I'm hoping you guys could find some for me in my time of need!!!

Thanks in advance.


A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
