Computer cant read drivers after isntalling new HD

I had to buy a new HD for my Toshiba Satellite laptop (thats what was recomended to me since it was making crazy noises and the screen was always black) but now that my friend tried to install Windows XP to it, it installs fine, but it does not read any of the drivers, so we thought that maybe since the computer came with Vista the drivers are only meant to function with Vista, but we tried installing Vista and it still cant read any of the drivers, not even the wireles...what can we do? does this mean my computer died???

    No not really. Try going to Toshiba's website and look up your model. Check to see if there is a XP version besides your Vista driver version. I know some of their satellites have different driver versions for XP and Vista. Good luck with it.

Computer sounds fine, CD sounds dead! Try copying the drivers onto a new CD using another computer & try them in the laptop again. The drivers may be Vista-specific anyway, so try downloading XP drivers from Toshiba website.

Toshiba Satallite Pro M10 PS630E-G206C-EN on a new HD, clean install of XP Pro but system drivers all missing and cant find the disc. Suggestions on a complete driver download location please? Cant get the...


As you have access to another machine (as you have posted here!), go to the Toshiba site, and find the drivers for your laptop.

(There are three M10 laptops showing, this is one of them: Driver for Toshiba Satellite Pro M10-S405, or you could choose from: THIS PAGE, where you can choose the exact model).

Download them to a USB stick, or write them to a DVD/CD and keep them safe in case you need them again in the future.

Hope this helps.

Hi Welcome to FixYa! You dont have to worry. You could buy a retail copy of Windows XP from a computer store.
Then, if its with the drivers for your computer that you are worrying about, you could refer to the link below so that you could download the appropriate drivers for it: http://tinyurl.com/L15-S104

Hope this would be a big help!

i would restore the notebook to factory settings -- this is the best option in getting the computer back to the way it worked originally going to the factory settings management portion in the system and or use your recovery CDs to format and re isntall everything

Motherboard died on my Toshiba Satellite A105 S4334


That is a tricky one. Guessing that you already have the new laptop, there is a usb adaptor that accepts SATA, IDE 3.5" and IDE 2.5" drives. You plug your drive into this adaptor, and plug the usb into your new computer. Now you can access all of the files on the old hard drive.

Can i recover my system without the disks?


U want to reinstal the OP right?
Well, whitout a windows disc you cant, you hav to buy a new OP.
Drivers for you laptop you will find on toshibas site.

But before you do that, mail Toshiba and tell them that you lost your discs, sometime they help, mostly they dont if it is an old laptop.

All drives xp for Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527


Ok just to clear the question up... I you just installed a new HD in your laptop and have already downloaded your recovery cd that came with the pc then you are asking for the remaining drivers that you are missing... if so here is what you need to do. If you are not missing your internet driver go to www.driveragent.com this requires a yearly membership of I think 29$ This will scan your pc and give you the drivers to download. If you just installed a new HD and if you turn your computer on and get nothing this is because you did not install your recovery disk,,, if you do not have your recovery disk ONLY Toshiba can provide this and you can order it from them. I would also call Toshiba for your driver disk as well if you cannot get on the internet...

Toshiba Laptop - Won't Read Any Disks


the drivers GOT LOST, bring it to the geek squad so they can try and get your drivers back on there, also buy an external hard drive and backup all of your priceless data in case you need to do a restore in which you need the recovery disks for your pc, most new pc dont come with them so if you need them order them from the mfg.
