Default Re: XP loaded, drivers??!?

What brand is your laptop? and what is its model number? etc they should all be underneath or on a sticker near the touchpad.

You can then go to the Toshiba website and download the drivers for your laptop.

You can see what drivers you need by going to device manager. Right click my computer>properties then choose hardware, then device manager. In the list you should have some yellow ? indicating the devices that have no drivers.
