'[TECH] Windows XP video drivers for Toshiba Satell'

Hi List,

Any idea where one could find Windows XP drivers for the video card in this
laptop? Toshiba only has drivers for Vista.

Or at least, is there a way to find out what graphics card it's using?

According to the specification sheet it has an intel gma 950 but for
some reason the driver downloads also offers an ATI driver.

If it does have intel graphics I think the driver you need is the one
from
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2102&DwnldID=16835&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

if the thing still has an install of vista on it you might take a look
in device manage there.

there is also a tool called everest ultimate which may help you (it's
trialware but generally you only need to use it once ;) )

Thanks Peter, it's actually another person's PC, he got rid of the original
Vista install, and a lot of his drivers are missing (audio, display,
Ethernet).

I'll forward your message on to him, thanks!

Many of these video setups are by one of the major Graphics people like
ATI or Nvidea (sp). Use something like Belarc advisor to determine what
the hardware really is.

Belarc Advisor is pretty neat. However, where does it get info about the
hardware? Woulnd't the video driver have to be installed, in order for it to
find out what video card is installed?

I'm not that familiar with the inner workings of windows or Belarc, but
Windows environment somewhere, probably from the cards, and motherboard
gets enough information to install the correct drivers. If you change a
card, the previous driver is not installed, and the new one is indicated
as hardware found, and installs the driver, or at least tries. I don't
have a motherboard with installed video, but do have Intel motherboards
with on board audio, and Belarc picks those up. I haven't ever looked at
Belarc when a driver wasn't installed to see what was there. Interesting
point to pursue. At the moment I'm involved with some important house
maintenance issues, and that's where my priority is.
