Hi,

Toshiba drivers can be downloaded from here

http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK

Find the right one for your model, download it, then just run the package. it will overwite your old driver with the latest.

Bare in mind that your laptop is not really a gaming machine and it's graphocs chip is not designed to run 3D games. It might struggle even with the new driver

How do i update my pixel shader for my computer to play games ?


Hi Gerry, if your HP's video card is capable of running the game, you can update the video driver. I would suggest trying the HP Driver Download Support website first. Here's the link: Drivers Downloads.

If your video card is not capable of running the game, you will want to look into a different video card.

Hope that helps you out! :)

Sound card broke


Check hardware Many sound problems are caused by hardware that isn't set up properly. This step covers checking your sound card, plugging cables into the correct locations, making sure the hardware has power, and checking the volume.
1. Check your sound card Check to make sure your computer has a sound card, or sound processor, and it's working properly.
  1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_71.jpg , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then, under System, clicking Device Manager. 1f9463c2-c968-47bf-9b4d-939c5d1af477_9.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers to expand that category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, check the information that came with your computer to see if there's supposed to be a sound card installed. If there should be a sound card installed, you'll need to install one according to the manufacturer's instructions.

    Notes

    • If you think you have a sound card installed but you don't see it under the Sound, video and game controllerscategory, expand the Other devices category and check the devices listed there.
    • Laptops don't usually have sound cards. Instead, they have integrated sound processors, which appear in the same category in Device Manager.
If there's a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card in Device Manager, there might be a problem.
  1. Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.
    If there's a problem, you might need a new driver for your sound card. For more information, see Step 3: Update drivers.
2. Check if the cables are connected properly 3. Check power and volume If you have speakers, make sure they're plugged into a working power source and turned on.
Make sure that your speaker volume or headphone volume isn't muted or turned down too low. This is particularly important for laptops, which often have small speakers that can be hard to hear.
  1. Open Volume Mixer by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_71.jpg, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then, under Sound, clicking Adjust system volume.
  2. Move the slider up to increase the volume.Make sure the Mute button isn't turned on. If the button looks like this: bc956393-768b-49ea-96c0-59e0e9100880_9.jpg, muting is turned off. If the button looks like this: d186b500-30b7-4799-a2e0-ebb43f9d2bd1_23.jpg , click it to turn off muting.

Note

  • Some laptops have an external volume control on the outside of the case. If you're using a laptop, check the external volume control to make sure it's not turned all the way down.
In some cases you might have several volume controls to check. For example, if you're using Windows Media Player it has its own volume control, Windows has a volume control, and your external speakers have their own volume control. If any of these volume controls are set to their lowest setting, you won't hear any sound.
Update drivers For Windows to recognize your sound card or sound processor, it needs a compatible and properly working driver. An outdated, incompatible, or damaged driver can disrupt communication between the PC and the sound card.
If you recently upgraded from one version of Windows to another, it's possible that the current sound card driver was designed for the previous version of Windows. If you've had recent power outages, viruses, or other computer problems, it's possible that the drivers have become damaged. Downloading and installing the latest sound card driver for your sound card can help resolve these types of problems.
Here are three ways to install a driver:
  • Use Windows Update. You might need to set Windows Update to automatically download and install recommended updates. Installing any important, recommended, and optional updates can update system features and other software that might help fix your sound problems.
  • Install software from the device manufacturer. If your device came with a disc, that disc might contain software that installs a driver for the device.
  • Download and install the driver yourself. You can search for a driver on the manufacturer's website. Try this if Windows Update can't find a driver for your device and the device didn't come with software that installs a driver.
For more information about updating your sound card driver, follow these steps. For information about devices that are compatible with Windows, go to the Windows Compatibility Center.

To update the driver using Windows Update

  1. Open Windows Update by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_71.jpg. In the search box, type Update, and then, in the list of results, click Windows Update.
  2. Click Check for updates.
    If there are any available updates, click the links to see more information about each update. Windows Update tells you if an update is important, recommended, or optional. Each type of update might include drivers.
  3. On the Select the updates you want to install page, look for updates for your sound card, select the check box for the driver that you want to install, and then click OK.
    There might not be any available driver updates.
  4. On the Windows Update page, click Install updates. 1f9463c2-c968-47bf-9b4d-939c5d1af477_9.jpg. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    Windows Update will tell you if the updates were successfully installed.

    Note

    • Some updates require you to restart your computer.

To download and install a driver yourself

If Windows can't find a driver for your sound card or sound processor, and the device didn't come with driver software, you can look for a driver on the manufacturer's website. Driver updates are often available in the support section of such websites.
To locate the driver, find the manufacturer and model name or number of your sound card, and then visit the Hardware and software vendor contact information website. Once you find your manufacturer, go to its website and locate and download the latest driver for your sound card.
If there's an updated driver, follow the installation instructions on the website. Most drivers are self-installing-after you download them, you usually double-click the file to begin the installation, and then the driver installs itself on your computer.
Some devices have drivers that aren't self-installing. If you download a driver that isn't self-installing, follow these steps.
You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.
  1. Open Windows Update by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_71.jpg, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Update. 1f9463c2-c968-47bf-9b4d-939c5d1af477_9.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  2. In the list of hardware categories, find the device that you want to update, and then double-click the device name.
  3. Click the Driver tab, click Update Driver, and then follow the instructions. 1f9463c2-c968-47bf-9b4d-939c5d1af477_9.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Video Adapter for ati xpress 200m


Toshiba don't do drivers for XP. The ATI website states the following

Advisory:
The display driver supplied by the laptop manufacturer is customized for the built-in flat panel display, and the graphics features and functions specific to the laptop. It is strongly recommended to use the supplied drivers.
If installing a different operating system other than the one included with the laptop, the laptop may not meet all the requirements, and supported drivers may not be available.
The laptop manufacturer is the exclusive provider of driver updates. If the required driver update is not available at the laptop manufacturers’ website, it is recommended to contact the manufacturer directly, to see if an updated driver will be made available in the future.
AMD cannot provide driver updates directly from AMD.com.

Cursor freezes when connected to internet


It's most likely a driver problem with the mouse it might be corrupted. Look at the mouse for the who made it. Then google the manufacturers website and add drive download to the search. Download and install the updated driver and your problem should be solved.

You can also use your back and restore function to reset your computer to an earlier date, that should fix the corrupted driver but updating the driver is always recommended.

Pc game


hello customer,

Updating video card drivers can solve most gaming issues. Here's some
simple abc's to always keep in mind. a. Shut off download accelerators,
firewalls and antivirus programs when downloading or installing updates;
b. Check for game patches: www.avault.com/pcrl/patches_list.asp?letter=a
c. Make sure you meet the game's minimum video and system requirements.

Before you update your drivers, I recommend that you update DirectX
from: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/directx/default.aspx

Here are the steps I recommend you use to update your driver:

1. To identify the make and model of your card, right click your
Desktop, choose Properties / Settings / Advanced / Adapter.

2. Download the latest video driver for your card online, using
http://mvps.org/nibblesnbits/Video.html#drivers
to find the website to download from. I also have advanced
video driver and direct X troubleshooting steps on that page.

3. Save the .exe driver (or extract the zip file) to a folder
in My Documents named after the driver version number.

4. Restart the computer in Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key
about once every second as it's rebooting to pick Safe Mode.

5. Click Start / (settings) Control Panel / System / Hardware
Device Manager / expand +Display Adapters / right click on
the adapter, pick "Uninstall", and click No if asked to reboot.

6. Use Control Panel / Add-Remove programs to uninstall the
previous driver (exe)software which may have been installed.

7. Restart the computer in Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key
about once every second as it's rebooting to pick Safe Mode.

8. If the driver is NOT a (.exe)program file, GO TO step 11.

9. When Windows prompts you to install the video adapter, click
"Cancel" and Double click the driver program to begin installation.
* Even if not prompted, doubleclick the driver and install it.

10. After you reboot, go to Control Panel / Display / Settings and
choose 32 bit Color Quality, and 800x600 or higher Resolution.
That's it! Scroll down to the Troubleshooter if you have problems.

11. When Windows prompts you to install the video adapter, click
"Install from a list or specific location", click the "Browse" button,
browse to the My documents folder where you saved the driver,
and finally click on one of the driver files to begin installation.

ATI RADEON 9550 X 1050 256MB --Someitmes Screen goes blank


I read somewhere that this black screen/blank screen problem is due to a hardware conflict with AMD boards that use a VIA northbridge chipset.  So I tested this by installing the video card on a AMD board with a SiS chipset.  Since installing on a board with the SiS chipset, I have had NO problems whatsoever.  I am convinced it is a hardware incompatibility issue.
I also am running an older version of Catalyst, version 7.7, per recommendations from others.  I have heard the X1050 has problems with 7.8 and above.  I admit, I have risked it and subsequently updated the drivers through windows update, without any problems, but have not updated Catalyst.  Still running fine.
