    My model number looks nothing like that, it's PSAARC-VA905C and when I go to the Toshiba website, chip set utility isn't an option. Bios is, should I we downloading this?

    This is the list generated for my model.

Hi there. All you should need to do, is download and install your motherboard/chipset drivers for your system.

You can download them from the Toshiba website here:

You will need your model no. As there are 7 different A100 models. It will look something like this: A100-ST1041.

If you need me to clarify anything, just reply to this post. If it works, please rate.

    Give it a go, sometimes they mean it as thje same thing. I am trying to see if I can find your model somewhere, so let me know if the BIOS update works.

    Hi again. I found the chipset drivers for your model via the Toshiba Canada website. When you select your model number, and click on GO, it opens a new window and your chipset drivers are 9th on the list.

    Hope that helps

    I'm sorry, I was looking at the wrong line. Try downloading the BIOS update for Vista,

    Let me know how it goes

High speed usb port toshiba a100 331 which usb port is the high speed port for webcam

Shouldn't matter so long as your computer uses usb 2.0. If it is using or only capable of 1.1 then you just might want to consider a new computer. But to tell you the truth never noticed much difference between 2.0 and 1.1 on a webcam. Hope this helps
