Preferred Solution: Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018 Drivers Needed !!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018 Drivers Needed !!

yes... the problem is probably related to the fact that the computer is built for use with windows 7.. perhaps find out what components you have installed and check with the manufacturer of those parts individually... or upgrade to win7... best of luck

I just checked all 4 driver links, and they worked just fine. The video link goes to the intel site (full link:* XP Home Edition&lang=eng).

If they still won't work, you can get the audio driver here at Major Geeks (link: Here's a link to the Toshiba drivers for your laptop. Just be sure to use the XP drivers...|PSLD8U

Hello Friends, I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite L355 notebook that came pre installed with Vista. Because most of my software won't work on the vista platform I opted to install XP. The xp installation was okay except that drivers for a few devices are missing. I have been to Toshiba's website but they only support Vista for this model. Please help!!!

I need drivers for the following devices:

1. Network Controller
2. SM Bus Controller
3. Video Controller
4. Video Controller (VGA compatible)
5. PCI device (PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_293E)

I've also attached the result of the Everest diagnosis.

Answer:Toshiba Satellite L355 Xp drivers desperately needed

:wave Welcome to Major Geeks! :major
There are times when dumping Vista in favor of XP isn't a good idea, sometimes drivers simply aren't available for XP. Period. End of story. However, that isn't case here.
Video Driver for WinXP
Wifi Driver for WinXP
Chipset Driver for WinXP (incl. SMBus and others)
Audio Driver for WinXP
:-D That should do it! If you have any problems or questions, feel free to post!!!!
Happy Holidays!


(NOTE: you should probably install KB888111 before installing the sound drivers. KB888111 is the Microsoft UAA HiDef Audio update for WinXP; your audio driver may not function properly without it. I'd install it anyway; if it's not needed, it won't hurt anything if it's installed, but if it is needed and not installed, then you'd have problems )

I have a Satelite A500 and have just rebuilt it.
However i forgot to save my display drivers which were the Nvidia drivers.

The current drivers on the site do not work correctly and give a very washed out display.
The drivers from the Nvidia site will not detect the card, this happened before the rebuild as well and is a problem out of the factory.

Where are the archived drivers held?
There was an set of drivers that worked correctly on the toshiba site and they were the ones i was using before the rebuild giving me vibrant colour however they have been removed.

I have disk with 32 bit system recovery but my x64 partition got deleted.

I cant order recovery x64 becouse my laptop is too old and they dont have this in offer.

Maybe Toshiba Support have my version of system/ or drivers alone in archive and they can send me it ?
I would be happy with drivers alone for x64 becouse there are just few of them on website.

Answer:I have toshiba satellite L505 laptop. It is 8 years old.

If the system is running and the LCD is showing progress when you light it up then the monitor or its contact to the cable or cable itself is bad and your back light (LED) is quitting on you. You can try the almost closing the laptop to see if it lights up again which would indicate a bad cable at the hinge. You can open the laptop (or get service) to see if the ribbon cable is properly seated at the motherboard and behind the monitor. If neither then the monitor may be bad.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hi everybody...

I own a L505 model with ATI's HD5165 graphics adapter. I've noticed recently that my display drivers were completely out of date (about a year and a half years old) and so are the latest available to download from Toshiba's website.

Several users in this forum suggested to look for more updated drivers under more recent models, but they are not compatible with my system (installation doesn't even start and manual "Have Disc" update does not work either) . Downloading drivers directly from ATI's website are also not supported and do not install. It's actually said in the site that if you own a notebook from a vendor (Toshiba included) you must obtain drivers from the vendor directly.

I aware of the fact that older models will benefit less from the latest drivers, since they target more recent hardware, but still, some bug fixes/security issues/etc are relevant to all machines. Therefore, a consent decline in the frequency in which drivers are released for older notebooks is not fair.

Either users should be provided with a tool to enable updating with ATI's official drivers (without violating warranty) or Toshiba must keep up the pace...

Is there any other way I can update my driver?

Answer:Out-Of-Date ATI Drivers For Satellite L505

Unfortunately I cannot give you answer to your question.
Fact is that you should use Toshiba drivers only. I think I must not explain why.

Hopefully Toshiba will help the customers and offer full support for display drivers.

It's actual so is vista 32-bits.

I will be updating it to Windows 7 sometime soon. Can I use the very same drivers?


Answer:Satellite L505-S6946 - Where can I get the drivers?

Hey Diego,

If you are searching for drivers you should look on the Toshiba US page. There you can get all drivers for it:

The website shows already Windows 7 drivers and it seems that you can get all drivers from there. If not you can try the Vista drivers because the most of them are also work on Windows 7.

I have bought a new laptop the L505-10M. I also bought a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit version.
I wanted to install it on this laptop but there are no drivers listed under the driver page for the L505-10M 64-bit.

What was even more surprising was that there arent even any drivers available for Vista 64-bit.
Yet the laptop is sold with a preinstalled version of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
So that means the drivers are there but havent been made available.

This bothers me alot. Can't get the Value Added Package and Flash Card support working.

Hope someone can clear this up for me.

Thank you.

Answer:Satellite L505-10M - Where to get Win 64bit drivers?


The 64bit drivers are not available at this time?. I think you will have to wait until you could get the all the Win 7 drivers fro this unit?

As you said the notebook has been preinstalled with Win 7 64bit?. so why you don?t make a upgrade from Win 7 home premium to Ultimate???

I think this should function and could be good solution until the Win 7 drivers would be available?.

Just a few suggestions, let me know which ones you've tried.
Have you tried the rest option? Power off the laptop, unplug the AC from the unit, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and AC, power on, if you see the Toshiba logo, press the 'F2' key to enter the BIOS Setup, in setup press 'F9' to load setup defaults, press 'F10' to save and exit, and then boot into Windows.
Have you tried a boot disk option via the DVD or USB?
If you have access to another computer you can get the Windows 10 install and go through the repair options.

I was wondering if someone can recommend to me how I repair the Lan connection in my Toshiba L505 Laptop. Windows kept shutting down suddenly and my laptop was feeling warmer than usual, so i thought the fan needs to be cleaned. I went in and I was able to remove the keyboard and lifted the area underneath the keyboard high enough to use an air spray to clean the fan. It seemed to work. but when I turned on the machine, i noticed there was no internet connection. I went into the device manager and there were yellow highlights on all the items related to the Lan and wiredless connections. I had the laptop confiqured wirelessly. the machine could not detect any wireless connections. I also connected the laptop directly with a wired connection and it did not work either. I obviously disconnect something or permantely damaged it.

I was looking for a service manual for the laptop but couldnt not find one online. Does anyone know where I can find something that visually shows me where the connections are and what they look like. I can try to reconnect this way.

Hey guys and gals,
So I've had my Toshiba Satellite for a couple years now, and I have loved it. After un-installing Vista and putting on XP sp3 on it, I really have had no problems. I have had some nasty viruses, but I've fixed it with either system restore, or Killbox ect. I currently have Desktop Maestro on my Satellite and I love it, has awesome tools like registry scan, system optimization, and keeps my boot times rather fast!
I still have the stock 2 gigs of DDR2 ram, and the 1.8GHz Turion64 X2, video card Radeon X1200 integrated, exc exc.

I dont use my computer for gaming or anything like that, just normal usage. my hard drive (250GB) was about 75% filled with my music, and photos( I am a photographer on the side ) and i will be d4mned if i loose all of it, i will be p1ssing blood

okay, well here is the problem, finally!

I was doing the usual, surfing the web and chatting with people online before going to bed, and I always put my laptop on "sleep" mode when i leave for a while, or go to sleep. I don't turn it off that much, except if i leave for the weekend.

I wake up this morning, flip the open the lid, and its totally greyish white. So I'm like "double you tee eff" and restart it. Once I restart it, 2 seconds later there are colorful vertical lines (and no, i am not on drugs ) then i start to freak out, then restart it again. same thing, different colored lines in different spots. I try it again, and NOTHING happens. alittle "boot"... Read more

Answer:BIG problem with my Toshiba Satellite A215 S4757. Help Needed

Hook it up to an external monitor (borrow one from a friend if you don't have one). That will determind if it is the video card or the monitor that is trashed.

Monitors aren't too hard to replace, they are harder to find, and relatively expensive. If you get lucky you'd be able to find another compatable toshiba that is dead that you could take hte monitor from.

Video cards on the other hand are difficult. Most video cards are integrated on latpops meaning if they go out, you have to purchase a whole new motherboard. This is usually very expesive (usually costs as much as the laptop is worth) and a pain to replace.

Either way you REALLY REALLY REALLY need to be backing up your data. Either on another external USB drive or DVD's. Purchase a large external drive and start backing up to that.

Answer:Toshiba Satellite A30 Drivers

In general Toshiba won't post the drivers unless they've been updated. So the best source of drivers is your recovery disk. Getting them off of the recovery disk may be a problem since the disk is actually an image of the hard drive.

Otherwise, use google and be very, very careful!

Ethernet driver, CD Rom Driver driver, Network Controller, PCI Simple Communications Controller, SM Bus Controller, Universal Serial Bus and an unknown device.
I have been on the Toshiba website but without success.
All suggestions welcome!
Many thanks !

Answer:Drivers for Toshiba Satellite

What's the complete model number of that Toshiba Satellite laptop?
(2 sets of characters separated by a dash comprises the complete model number)

What Windows 7 version(Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, etc.) and bit number(32, 64) did you install, and does it include Service Pack 1?


Before you install Windows 7 SP1, you should identify the primary devices(chipset, graphics, audio, wireless, ethernet, etc.) for that laptop and then download and save the drivers for them.
Once Windows 7 SP1 is installed, you should install the chipset driver before installing any other drivers.
That allows Windows 7 SP1 to properly detect and configure that laptop's devices.

You also should read and print off the Windows 7 SP1 install and update guide which is located in the "Windows 7" section.
If you follow it properly, it'll save you a lot of time and grief.

The issue I'd like to bring up to your attention is due to the availablity of chipset and graphics drivers on intel website for laptop chipset family 852/855 GM/GME, much recent than the corresponding files available on this site, released by the end of 2003.

My question is: is it mandatory to use oem provided drivers or can we use those ones, assumed that a pc (I hold a SA-40 model) comply with posted requirements (as it is my case as far as I can see)?
And if so, why do they not show up on this website?


Answer:Satellite A40: Should I use only Toshiba drivers or can we use others?


you can use the drivers from every source you want to.
But be aware of that drivers for examlpe from Intel are designed for desktop PCs.
So they will not work on a notebook or can even damage it.
But there are unofficial pages on the web, which provide modified drivers for notebooks.

Be aware of there is no guarantee that this drivers will work, and you also don't have warranty in case of damage.

Toshiba satalite l505 freezes up on factory restore?
I'm trying to do a factory restore on my friends laptop. The internal hd restore would freeze up during the 3rd or 4th configuration system screen. So I ordered some disks and did a format on the hard drive and did another factory restore with the disks. It still freezes up at the same spot. Even after leaving it all night while I sleep.

Ever time (tons of times both with the internal restore and disks) it freezes up at the same spot. When you restart the pc it goes into the login screen and only shows admin available with no usable password and can't get into it saying that the user isn't set up or the sort. Forgot exactly what it said.

I thought it might be the hard drive so ordered a new one. Still freezes at the same spot.

Please if you know how to fix this tell me. I called customer support and all they want to do is order another disk. But I doubt the new disk they sent me and the internal hard drive would both freeze at the same place if it was the disk.

I've also tried searching the net and so far no solutions. just more people complaining about it doing it to them also. I know there's gotta be a solution somewhere.

Answer:Toshiba satalite l505 freezes up on factory restore?

What is the reason for the restore? The original problem is often the same reason restoring won't work. You may well have a hardware problem.

Are you sure the disks you are using are for that exact model of machine?

Are there any known or past problems with the optical drive that could make reading the disks a problem?

Is memory OK?

How did you "format" the drive? Formatting a drive before installation has not been needed in Windows since 2000. Most formatting tools would create incorrect partition or file system types (formatting is technically only for file systems, but some tools also partition). It wouldn't be a bad idea to delete the partitions and install to an empty drive.

I have a laptop that Toshiba Satellite C55A-1K6.

In the past i deleted Toshiba Recovery Partition by mistake and now i wanna ask the thing cause of that...

When i go to Disk Management in Windows 8 (that preinstalled by Toshiba on my laptop) i see four partitions...

The first partition is nearly 1 GB and i think its needed by Windows 8, then i see C and D for my Windows 8 and at the end there is a partition that is 11 Gb and it is hidden and it is not shown in My computer of Windows...

I have just created 3 * 4.5 GB Recovery DVD Set via Toshiba Rescue Media Creator and now if i delete all partitions on the hdd, can i use these DVD Medias to restore my laptop to its first state when i bought it or i still need Recovery Partition on the HDD instead of using Recovery DVd Medias?

If i delete all partitions on the hdd now, are these DVD Medias are enough to go back to first state standalone or not?

Sorry for my bad English and i hope describe the things in my head... :)


Answer:Satellite C55A-1K6 - Which partition is needed by Toshiba's System Recovery?

>in the past i deleted Toshiba Recovery Partition by mistake
This was really bad move since the recovery partition is necessary in order to create recovery disk or to recover the notebook using HDD recovery option.

>The first partition is nearly 1 GB and i think its needed by Windows 8,
That?s right.

> then i see C and D for my Windows 8
That?s right

> and at the end there is a partition that is 11 Gb and it is hidden and it is not shown in My computer of Windows.
This looks like the recovery partition. But I don?t understand why you said above that you have deleted the Toshiba recovery partition. Could you please clarify this statement?

>I have just created 3 * 4.5 GB Recovery DVD Set via Toshiba Rescue Media Creator and now if i delete all partitions on the hdd, can i use these DVD Medias to restore my laptop to its first state

The Recovery DVD set would format the HDD and would recreate all partitions once again.
The answer is: Yes, this will restore the notebook back to the state like at the first day of purchase.

By the way: i found other thread you created about the same theme:
Please follow one thread to avoid misunderstandings.

I just recently bought a Toshiba Satellite C855D. Per the normal process when I buy a new pc, I started to update all the device's drivers. I however cannot seem to locate a driver for the Processor (AMD E-300 APU). I also updated the driver for the graphics card (AMD Radeon HD 6300) with the latest Catalyst Suite. During the install I received an error in a .xml report (See below). Everything in the report seemed to be fine except at the very bottom of the page it reads: "Driver Install: the specified driver package was not installed for matching devices". Yet when I go to Device manager under Display adapters it now reads "AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics" and the driver date is now 3/28/13.

S. Stoev

Answer:Drivers for Win XP Toshiba Satellite C660D-13H


It seems that Win XP is not supported on Satellite C660D and therefore you cannot find the drivers on the Toshibas driver pages.
But even if the Win XP drivers are not available, you can install Win XP.
But you will have to search for the XP drivers at your own hand.

Here is a nice document how to determine the needed drivers:

You can also try some XP drivers released for other notebook models like Satellite C650D

But I recommend using Win 7 since this is the best OS from Microsoft.
The CPU is not too weak. Even my 6 years old notebook uses Win 7. I installed this OS and it runs properly.

Answer:Satellite C50-A-571 -Two questions about Toshiba drivers download

Hi and welcome

I?m not some expert but I?ll try to offer my answers.

As far as I know support page you use is offered for Middle East and Arica. I don't know where is the server placed but download should not be problematic. In the past I used it few times for drivers check and everything was OK. Maybe is there some problem with your Internet connectivity.
Toshiba support and download page is definitely not limited and can be used anytime you want.

I?ve checked download page and found 33 results for Win7 64bit so I presume you want to install this Windows version.
Anyway all listed stuff are not just the drivers but also useful Toshiba specific tools and utilities. This tools and utilities control some special useful special features like special keys functionality or HDD protection.

I can just recommend you to install all of them and have full control over your machine. Of course if you don't like or don't need some of them they can be disabled or removed from the system.

I hope my opinion is useful for you. If you have more questions you are welcome.

Don?t think you will receive an answer from Toshiba directly because this is a user-to-user forum.

If yes then I presume the XP drivers will be not released at this time.
Some weeks ago I spoken to an authorized service provider technician in my country and he said that XP drivers are not available for the AMD machines?

It looks like you have to search for the XP drivers on chip manufacturer?s websites.
I?ve got a A210 notebook with a AMD CPU and I didn?t find any XP drivers for my notebook. But I?ve installed XP and it runs great.

I?ve found single XP drivers in another Satellite A categorises. Some single drivers work.

Answer:Solved: Toshiba Satellite A300 has no drivers

If you can find the driver for the ethernet controller, and can then get online, the other drivers will be easier to deal with. Toshiba's website is notorious for its uselessness in driver downloads so it's easier to go to the ethernet adapter's Properties in Device Manager and click the Details tab. You should be looking at the Hardware ID which will have four characters showing after VEN for Vendor and another four after DEV for device.

Note those down and go to and input the DEV code into the second of the two input boxes then hit Enter. The VEN code you have will appear in column three so you'll then know who made it and have a link to their site where you can download the right driver.

I was given an old Toshiba Satellite a135 laptop with a trashed drive. Rather than try to fix vista, I installed XP Pro but I can't drivers for it. I was able to get the LAN to work but not the wireless and it's on the basic video driver.

I went back through Toshiba drivers and as far as I can tell the next oldest Satellite that used XP was the A110. The A110 drivers wouldn't install and downloading drivers from Intel and ATI didn't work either.

I don't think this laptop is worth the cost of Win7. The only Win7 I have on hand is a 64 bit version (that I bought for another computer) and this laptop only works with 32 bit Win7.

I've got an A200-28P with an ATI HD2600 card in it and the July 08 driver version 8.452 on it,
Now I emailed ATI and asked if there was anyway they could provide Toshiba with the driver that fixes a known issue in the Sims 2 game where the ATI 2,3 and 4000 series cards suffer a black screen on TV and the PC has no picture.

And they basically told me that they can't offer me an updated driver and there are ways of getting newer drivers but that its up to my laptop maunfacturer to ask for the latest drivers as people with desktops with any of the affected cards have all had a driver update to fix the issue and the makers of the game provided a fix in a patch for one of the expansion packs that I don't own.

So unless I risk letting a copy program called Securom onto my laptop I can't get my black screen issue fixed am used to it now but when feel well enough to play on desktop is fun to see the TV programmes and the PC pictures so seems unfair my laptop can't have a newer updated driver with a fix in it.

Does anybody know who I'd have to contact at Toshiba to ask about asking ATI for a driver with a fix in it for this known issue?

Hi, You can use this tool it is DH MOBILITY MODDER, dowload newest drivers from ATI 9.3, and then use this tool to mod them and after that they will work with Your Ati mobility card, I have Toshiba A300 with Ati 3470 and everything works ok. GOOD LUCK :)

I recently bought an Satellite L300-08t, and I also got a different version of windows and installed it but little did I know that the drivers for the keyboard and touchpad and all those utilities were nowhere to be found, and its really become inconvenient now.

Does anyone know where i can get the keyboard/touchpad utilities?


Answer:Need Toshiba utilities and drivers for Satellite L300-08T


As I?m not mistaken the Satellite L300-08T belongs to the Toshiba Canadian notebook series and if you would need any drivers, tools or utilities then you should search on the Toshiba Canada website.

Here the link:

You also don?t post anything about your kind of Windows Operating system?
If you will not find all needed drivers on the Canadian page then I would recommend checking the drivers from the European driver website;
Maybe some single drivers would run on your Canadian model.
But note; you can try it but there is no guarantee that such drivers will function

I just bought this Toshiba and I seem to like it very much. The only thing is that I would like for someone to help me find the required drivers for it to use the Windows 10 Operating System. Also, mine came equipped with the Toshiba Face Recognition feature, and I would like to know why it isn't working when I go to unlock my computer.

I tried the Toshiba forums on the Toshiba website and they were no help. Neither was Windows 10 Forums. They would never reply to my questions.

I am coming from an Acer that wasn't compatible with Windows 10. That's why I upgraded.

P.S. I have Autism but I am pretty smart at computers. But I am also learning everyday.

Help needed please!

Thanks in advance!

I just got my Toshiba Satellite L50-B-27N (PSKTQE) today.
Since I prefer Windows 7 over 8, I got my notebook without any OS so I can install Windows 7 on it.

Now I wanted to install the PC Health Monitor on my notebook, but the installation doesn't work, telling me always that Toshiba System Drivers are missing.

After doing some research, I can not find system drivers for Windows 7 64 bit only for Windows 8. Yet there is a Pc Health monitor for Windows 7 on the Driver page.

My question therefore is, where can I get system drivers for windows 7 64 bit so i can get this Pc health monitor running?

Answer:Satellite L50-B-27N - Toshiba System Drivers for Windows 7


Toshiba System Driver isn’t available for Win 7.
There is another software called Toshiba Value Added Package for Win 7.
This is required and must be installed

I downloaded the following drivers (for my Notebook; Satellite A10-163 Model number : PSAA9E)


I unzipped each of these and can only find a PROUnstl.exe file, which un-installs any existing drivers; I cannot find a "Setup.exe" or anything that sets up either of my wired or wireless networking cards. I am using Windows XP Home edition.

Is there anywhere I can get a driver that has an easier to use "install.exe" file in it?

Is there anyone that can help me over-come this problem?

Answer:LAN Drivers from Toshiba Website - won't work - Satellite A10-163


First of all, all drivers which are available on the Toshiba driver page should works properly. I?m 100% sure about this. If you don?t find any setup.exe or install.exe in the driver folder so you have to use another driver installation procedure.
Go to the device manager, choose the LAN card and install the driver. Please choose the driver form the driver download place.

I've got a Toshiba Satellite A70 laptop computer that I bought about six months ago, and I have lost the CD with all of the device drivers on it.

The problem is, is that I can't seem to find the correct drivers on the Internet for it. Even the Toshiba website is hopeless.

Does anyone know where I can get a full set of up-to-date drivers for this model laptop?

I am doing a fresh install of Windows 7 for my friend's laptop, Toshiba Satellite L700-T11B she told me she got it in China. I cannot for the life of me find any driver support online for this model,

Windows 7 took care of most drivers itself but 3 remained still:

Downloaded Intel Driver Update Utility to see if it would recognize anything, no luck.

SM Bus Controller Driver - Thinking this was a chipset, Piriform Speccy (Program that reveals system specs) says Southbridge Model "HM65" so I google a driver for that and 1st google link is an Intel driver download - installed and it went away in device manager.

Others are
Ethernet Controller
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller

Not throwing a yellow triangle in device manager because windows installed a generic, but would also like the driver for the touchpad for 2-finger scrolling.

Let me know if this sounds like the incorrect solution for the SM Bus as well because I usually just download right off the manufacturer support page, but could not in this instance.

Hey guys!

Today i went on the toshiba hp and searched for drivers for my laptop.
I didnt think it, but there were no drivers for my notebook.

Can someone please help me ?

I searched for xp drivers! Because my Windows 7 destroyed.

Thank you very much!


Answer:No XP Drivers for Satellite X200 on Toshiba Homepage!

And how to help?
If your notebook is not supported for WXP you must try to find drivers alone googling around or visiting hardware manufacturers page.

By the way: if your Win7 is destroyed why you don?t want to install it again.
Isn?t it better to install supported OS again or search drivers for not supported OS.
