Driver Scanner?! For Toshiba Satellite A40
« on: September 03, 2010, 11:59:30 AM »
Ok so I received this Toshiba Laptop that needs drivers. I used Uniblue driver scanner last year but the 2010 edition only scanes for driver updates. I need a driver scanner that will tell me what type of driver I need to download from the program. Is there any program like that.

go to the downloads page direct from Toshiba's official website.

Just follow their model selection tool to find the stuff for your particular laptop model and it should list what's available for you.

im not joking, i went on toshibas web site a found a number for their recovery disk help desk and the guy told me it was $45 because it included the windows XP installation on it. I asked if i could get a disk with just the drivers and he said I could look on the web site so i told him they were bad and missing and he told me whats there is there he can't do nothing about it and then he hung up! Im so mad at them. School starts on tuesday and Im without a computer.

well the drivers that are missing are the display, e-thernet, modem(not that ill be needing that) and the Fn keys and the media keys to dvd player. I know there missing or corrupt because the device doesn't work and on the add new hardware it says all are missing but the display. The display is bad because the driver is installed but any media playes bad.
