Why are you isntalling an old operating system that supports the old 32 bit architecture? Its like puchasing a corvette then saying, you know what, i'd rather have a cavalier - thanks though.

If you've already tried toshiba's website and nividia's website the driver probably doesn't exist. These aren't universal pieces of code, they are specific to hardware and operating systems. So newer PC's usually don't have drivers for older hardware because there is no need for the manufacturer to spent time and resources creating them. On the flip side older PC's won't have drivers for newer operating systems for the same reason.

Sorry for the bad news, but the driver probably doesn't exist.
