Re: Graphics Card Driver for Toshiba Satellite 1805-S274
Hello Ewuare, Here is a link to Toshiba's Satellite Support Downloads page: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp. I couldn't locate the model number you posted above there, so you may want to double check it. You can find updated Graphics card drivers for your machine there. Good luck.

I'm gonno bump this as it's a massive problem with Toshiba laptops and so many peoples questions are unanswered. I have a Toshiba Satellite A210-11p with an Ati mobility radeon 2600hd graphics card. I have spent years dealing with this problem. Some people will have heat problems, this is a common problem with them, but some laptops will cut out when you go to play say a video or play a game. This is a graphics card problem!! nothing else it is purely a graphics card problem, the second you go to load something when Maximise Performance on the graphics card turned on the laptop will cut out like it shorts out. the charger light on the laptop will flicker and it will make a clicking sound when it cuts out.
Can someone please find a reason and a solution to this extremely common and fatal flaw in toshiba satellite laptops
It's likely to be a drivers problem rather than a card problem. When for some reason the Microsoft VGA driver gets loaded instead of the proper display driver, all the acceleration functions of the card are disabled. This can lead to the hiccupy scrolling you're referring to.
From control panel, go into display and see if your monitor is on either "(unknown device)" or "VGA compatible display adapter". Both indicate that Windows has forgotten the driver. If this is the case, go to Toshiba's website and redownload the driver for your machine, and that should resolve the problem,
