Question: Question about drivers (hardware manufacterer vs toshiba drivers)

Is it better to use the drivers provided by toshiba (nvidia, synaptics,...) or should i install it from the official hardware manufacterer as they have more recent drivers than the one on toshiba site.

Preferred Solution: Question about drivers (hardware manufacterer vs toshiba drivers)

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: Question about drivers (hardware manufacterer vs toshiba drivers)

Generally speaking the drivers from Toshiba page should be used since such drivers are tested by Toshiba.
For example the display driver from Toshiba supports some kind of overheating protection and clock down the GPU if the temperature would be too high? in such case the performance would be decreased for a short time but this would lower the temperature? as far as I know the drivers from chip manufacturers don?t support such feature?
So the usage of such drivers is your own risk?

At the other hand you can install Synaptics drivers from manufacturer page. There is no risk.

I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite L875D-S7332 laptop but the win 8 that came with it had no back up drive, and the SD card, whether erased or not had no restore function.

I ran an HDD recovery and then uploaded Win 7 , till I could get info, but it will not connect to the net, and keeps saying 'cannot detect network adaptors'.

I searched online and found the recommended drivers, but following careful instructions (REALTEK WAN drivers) and restarting still did not resolve the issue. I am at a loss: because of the reformat, win 8 is not even recoverable.

What do I do? Every thing on Device Manager under 'other drivers' including Ethernet, USB, and Network adaptors has the yellow alert symbol.

Had a HDD failure and bought the product recovery DVD, many of the drivers are unsigned and therefore wont install. Would have thought that Toshiba suppled drivers would be signed, have searched the forum for a clue on what do about this and can't find anything.

Have done some general internet searchs and found some solutions but am not sure if I should be making those changes to the system,

Any thoughts?

Answer:Question about drivers on Toshiba recovery DVD

Hi buddy,

> and therefore wont install.
If you install Windows from Toshiba recovery disk all drivers and tools will be installed automatically. During recovery installation no error messages appear and everything will be done automatically. So I have no idea what you mean with the drivers won?t install.

Fact is that all drivers and tools (the whole content of recovery disk) is pretested by Toshiba and it works properly. Everything is tested and designed for perfect usage.

this is what I want to do, so... please help!

I just buy myself new TOSHIBA SATELLITE X200-21K notebook, and I want to format it, and... to install Windows Vista Ultimate (Not Windows Vista Home Premium from Product Recovery DVD-ROM).

I was downloaded all drivers from...

... but I can't find "Installation Instructions" to download anywhere, so I can install it in right order, unless... if "Please click here to download manuals." is the "Installation Instructions", if not... please... where can I download that instructions!?

So... after I do this format and install new Vista Ultimate, I will not have... original TOSHIBA Tools which arrived with Product Recovery DVD-ROM, do I actually loose something with that, like... soft for Web Cam or TOSHIBA Assist or TOSHIBA Zooming Utility or Protector Suite QL.. and so on... can I go without that?

Can I install or download just this soft from elsewhere, after I install Vista Ultimat, maybe from Product Recovery DVD-ROM, but how?

Is it just Windows Vista Home Premium version that come
with this Product Recovery DVD-ROM, or... all version of Vista comes in this DVD, and You could pick which version You want to install?

I hope someone will help me with my "problem"!?

Thank You so much!

Best Regards

I have a laptop (Toshiba Equium L40 X10) and it came with Windows Vista Home Edition on it.

Yesterday i took Vista off and replaced it with XP Pro. when i was going through device manager i found that i was missing some drivers.
Does anyone know where i can get them from????? the back up restore CDs i got with that Laptop are Vista back ups only and i didnt get a driver CD because that is integrated with the Vista disk.

If any of you guys know where to get them from please let me know.

Cheers Fellow Geeks!!!!! :major

PS. i remember calling microsoft tech help and they told me its near impossible to get XP on top of Vista.... they not very bright are they!! hahah,

Answer:Toshiba drivers (Network drivers)

Have you tried Toshiba's site to see if they even have XP drivers for your stuff? Sometimes they will only offer Vista and not XP drivers. I would download this:

Should tell you what all you have under the hood. You may have to go to the people who made each part's website to find a XP driver.

Hopefully you will get lucky and can snag 'em from Toshiba's site.

This is a general question for a fresh install of Windows on a computer. Let's say we just completed the installation and we open up Device Manager (we haven't used Windows Update yet). Device Manager shows us that there are - let's say "3" - devices that do not have drivers installed for them. If we visit the computer manufacturers website though, they'll have - let's say "8" - different drivers to download.

If we only install the "3" drivers for the devices that Windows couldn't find drivers for, are we hurting our computing performance by not installing the other "5" drivers that were available on the manufacturers website?

This is just good to know in general, because I've faced this situation with every install of Windows since I began computing with Windows 98. But the reason I'm asking now is because the nincompoops at Acer - despite me entering my serial number - still offer me every possible driver for my model, including drivers for hardware that's not in my computer! Windows - of course - can't identify the hardware, so I'm ready to rip out the last little bit of hair on my head.


Answer:General Question - Windows Installed Drivers Vs OEM Website Drivers

Some manufacturers offer an utility that helps you identify what stuff you have in the laptop, I think Acer did.
You can also try the hardware-detection program this forum has, this tutorial

Also check the driver version, as some manufacturer list multiple driver versions and you only need the latest (usually, otherwise take the last version that works).

Also, installers of these drivers usually look up the hardware IDs of the hardware and if they don't detect anything that could benefit from them will abort installation. Some instead install anyway and you will have some drivers you won't need, but won't cause any issue as again Win7 knows that they don't match any hardware ID, and will leave them alone.

So, you may have noticed that I am talking of Hardware IDs, that are basically each device's own "calling card" integrated in each device, you can identify the hardware by looking up its hardware ID and then searching it on Google to convert that code into a human-readable device model and brand.

Open device manager, right-click on an unknown device, click on "properties", then go in the "details" tab of its properties panel from Device Manager, click on the drop-down menu and select "Hardware IDs". right-click on the codes you get on the text panel below it and select copy, then search the code on Google to identify the device.

I recently purchased a monitor for a Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5230 that runs Win 7 Home Premium, 64-bit. It looked really fuzzy, and when I investigated, the monitor indicated that the resolution, which can go up to 1920x1080, was too low coming from the laptop. But long excursions through both the Toshiba and AMD sites for an update to its AMD E1-1200 only presented drivers they said were designed for Windows 8.1.

Answer:Drivers toshiba s4

How are you installing Windows 7? To install Windows 7 you would boot off of the Windows Install Media (eg) DVD or USB flash drive, and then choose your language, then Install then Custom Install.
Once you have installed Windows 7, go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc, Right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, any devices that have a yellow flag need drivers.
Go to the Toshiba Support page Toshiba Laptop Support homepage - Toshiba type in your exact model # and choose what version of Windows 7 you have (eg) 32bit (x86) or 64 bit and download the drivers you need starting with the Chipset driver. If you do not have Internet do this on another computer and save the drivers to a USB Flash Drive to install to the laptop.

Hi Gerry

As far as I know only this customer gets this version ;)

Anyway, I have read on the Microsoft site that the official Vista start was set on 30 January 2007. So you cannot have any original final version.

By the way; I don?t found any Toshiba notebooks which are delivered with Vista OS at this time so I think this is the reason for no Tosh drivers at this time.

Hi guys,

We recently bought a 2nd hand photocopy machine and found it had the printer option board installed in it. Bought a long cable to plug it into the parallel port on the pc, downloaded the drivers from the Toshiba website, and spent significant time banging my head into the wall when it didn't work.

Much research and fighting has revealed that the drivers on the Toshiba site require minimum version 1.48AT firmware in the printer interface board, and ours has version 1.31AT firmware.

Does anyone know where I can lay my hands on either a PS or PCL mode driver that is just old enough to work with our boards firmware?

Have Googled every combination I can think of and come up blank.

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.

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!

Qosmio X300-15g, after a half a year GPU again overheats, notebook shuts down with current NVIDIA driver.
Their last driver update was in 2009 for this model. Their driver is almost 2 years old. I'm not joking; Toshiba simply does not update video drivers.
They think that video drivers do not need to be updated. They think that it is good for me to use old drivers full of bugs. If I don't use that driver, notebook will overheat.
How on earth is this possible?

How on earth Toshiba does not support their own product (the notebook is about 4500 dollars, and now useless because of driver issue, well I mean, of course I can browse internet, and use notepad...).

Do you use this old Qosmio with Vista or with Win7 maybe?

I'm trying to find drivers for a Toshiba Tecra S1. I went to the Toshiba site and provided the Part number and Serial number and said the combinatino didn't return to any computer. I did download search for the make a model. The site has all the Tecra listed except the S1.

This all started when the hard drive apparantly crashed. The bizzareness of this whole thing baffles me.

The hard drive crashed. I checked the system as it boots up and it doesn't recognize any hard drive. I put a windows XP startup CD into the drive and run the recovery. It asks for the administrators password and not having one, I tried three and was forced to boot up. Low and behold it boots into the hard drive.

I figure before I do too much, I'll connect to my network and back up some files. the wifi sees my network but will not connect or even ask for my password. After several attempts, I try to get it to connect by cabling it to the internet through my router then direct. I use a broadband cable IP. I can't get the network adapters to install. I tried to use the network connection wizzard and No Joy.

I looked at the device manager and see that the Ethernet Controller, PCI Flash Memory, PCI Modem, and video Controller (VGA Compatible) are enabled but the drivers are not installed.

I try to load the drivers through the wizard and it says it can't find it. I looked on the Windows CD and no joy.

Any suggestions????

Answer:Drivers for Toshiba Tecra S1

Here ya go:
There's 9 pages of drivers, so you should probably use an app like Unknown Devices to show you exactly which devices are present so you don't waste time trying the wrong drivers.
Good luck!

If you are unable to get them from Toshiba ( I am sure you must be able to if you persist, maybe even chatting with one of their service techs) you could try the free site You must register to use the site but it is free.

i am also experiencing a lost in my audio driver. I am currently using windows 7 and the model of my laptop is toshiba m600. plsss help me get my audio back plsss

Answer:Toshiba audio drivers

Greetings, lzatrinidad.

Finding drivers for the M600 can sometimes prove difficult - please do the following:

Download and run Free PC Audit, a stand-alone system information tool.

(If you get a Security Warning, don't worry about it - uncheck the 'Always ask before opening this file' box, and click 'Run').

When the scan completes, click File > Save As, name the file 'Report', and save to an easily found location, such as your Desktop.

Then attach that file to your next post per these instructions: HOW TO: Attach Items To Your Post.

Once we get that information, we should be able to find a driver for you.

One quick question: you stated that you are "currently using windows 7" - is this an upgrade from another operating system, and if so, what version?

well certainly looks like toshiba's website don't have the drivers that your looking for.
Best idea mite just be to download an Unknown Device identifier program like

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.

Haven't tried the Seiko serial port label printer yet.

Few hours ago i manually ran chkdsk but it keeps telling me this:
Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50
And this error points to NTFS File system structure in the eventvwr.
At the moment everything is working well, except i got these BSODs 2 or 3 times so far a couple of hours ago, according to the eventvwr. Anyway, something is wrong with my computer, thats for sure.

I also installed the debbuging tools, but honestly i don't know what to think about the logs. Hope you guys can give an idea of what is causing this errors.

Unfortunately, it seems that Win XP drivers are not available for this notebook series.
But I would recommend you to use Win 7. It looks a little bit different and you would need some time to settle down in Win7 environment but it?s much better than Win XP.

And you can also use the Win XP software in connection with Win 7.
In most cases the software should be compatible with Win 7. If you would get some installations problems then you could run this in Win 7 compatibility mode.

You do realise how audio just simple doesn't work correctly if you don't release updates, right?
I paid 800€ for this cumputer. I want this fixed. I don't care if it's discontinued.

This is what you get when you manufacture computers with bad speakers that rely on software to sound good. Shame on you Toshiba. Whose brilliant ideia was to put this dumb DTS system in your computers?

What am I supposed to do now? Basically there's no more audio in my computer, is that it?
This is YOUR PROBLEM, solve this now! I've had enough with this joke of support.

Even my 8 year old 300€ Toshiba sounds flawless compared to this piece of crap that cost me 800€.
It's the difference between actually having good speakers and having cheap crapy speakers that don't work without external software.
After all, saving money on cheap speakers and hiding its problems with software didn't work for you guys, especially if you're discontinuing every god damn PC. Do you even realise that? Just release the DTS drivers for this models for god sake, is that too much work? Giving you 800€ was a lot of work, if you ask me.

Congrats Toshiba, keep being a joke.

any help would b appreciated

thx in advance

Answer:toshiba a215-s7472 xp drivers

Drivers aren't that hard to find. You need to find another PC with the same motherboard and hardware as yours, running XP as the original OS.
(I am a little busy today or I would look around for you. I'll get with you soon , if someone else doesn't)
Even with the proper driver drivers you may have install problems with audio. I tell everyone not to backgrade to XP, but that is your choice to make. If you do make sure you have a Recovery disc, so that you will be able to restore back to Vista, if you need to.

I'm wondering why your Vista is crashing. It has been very stable on my system (more than XP was) and is considered stable by most of those I know using it.
It's possible you could just have an Hardware issue, that may carry over to XP.
Have you looked in your event logs to see what is causing the crashes?

Answer:Who wants new drivers for Toshiba Qosmio series?

Hi dude

I found your other thread and posted this workaround for all which want to use drivers from nVidia page:

If you were not able to install thin executing the exe file then I?ve a tiny tip for you:
You can update the driver via device manager.

Go to device manager, choose the graphic card and press button update the driver.
Then choose the Advaced installation procedure which helps you to point to the downloaded driver package and to force Win OS to choose this driver.

In my case this procedure works and functions always.

So i had to replace someone else's laptop hard drive, and installed XP Home because the person had XP reinstall discs. Anyway, I'm lost about installing the drivers for it. I found a pack of drivers that were supposed to be for it, but i don't know how to install it. It can't access the internet either, so i'm reduced to downloading the drives on THIS computer and transferring them via thumb drive.I downloaded the pack here, and have NO clue on how to install it.I found another set of drivers, but i'm skeptical about it. I found that pack here.What should I do?

I'm having terrible issues with my Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 - sometimes wi-fi crashes and stops working untill I reboot the system (and during rebooting I get blue screen quite often). I want to get back to original Toshiba WLan drivers and the problem is that download is crashing (no matter if I use download manager or nor - I get "wrong size" error)

One set is the Windows 7 32 bit Value Added Package and the other is the Windows XP 32 Alps Touchpad driver.

I would not be surprised to see more Windows 7 drivers posted because Windows 7 goes on sale in the US tomorrow, October 22nd.

It will be interesting to see if the Fn keys now work.

I played with an NB205 with Wndows 7 in Best Buy yesterday. The flash card utility was tied to the Fn keys so that they worked.

Answer:Have you installed the original OS and toshiba drivers

Hello Matrox

What is your problem buddy?

This is user-to-user forum and not some official Toshiba support where you can exchange your opinions and problems with Toshiba directly so either take participation on these discussions and be cool or visit Toshiba service in your country and tell them your opinion about Toshiba support directly.

As I can see you have posted over 50 postings here so you should know how this forum works.

Be cool man. ;)

Answer:Need Toshiba VGA drivers for Satellite 5205S-503


Your notebook name is placed on the label which can be found on the bottom of the unit!
Roll over the notebook and check the label details.

Depending on the installed OS the graphic driver can be downloaded either from Toshiba website or from another 3rd websites.

Cheers ;)

PS; come back and post your notebook name
