Fchlmail is absolutely right in his post where he has suggested to download the latest drivers from RealTek's website instead of Toshiba's support site (shame on Toshiba)

Hi,
This is refering to A System Bus Or Mainboard Driver.
Try downloading the Manufacturers mainboard Drivers.
i.e 4 in 1 Driver, which will setup your Motherboard Correctly.
Also check to see if it,s enabled in the systems Bios Setup.
Usually Esc-Del Or F2 At bootup.

Changing back to xp


If you have the installation disk for XP and 4 to 6 hours of spare time it's as easy as putting in your disks at boot up.No disk,there are no Free disks of XP.Perhaps Windows 7 would be a better fit if you have to buy an OS.

PCI device drivers for Toshiba Satellite A100


Here's a link to Toshiba's driver download site. You'll need to choose the exact A100 model (there are several), then choose XP sp2 from the drop down on the next page, and it will give you the list of drivers for your machine.

No sound coming from laptop


did you have the laptop/notebook from new if so then you should have had a set-up disc containing all of the drivers needed to activate items such as modems,sound card,graffics card etc.
this is just a simple problem and can be rectified instantly by inserting set-up disc and loading all avaliable drivers!
if no disc avaliable then log onto the toshiba website and download the up to date drivers needed for your laptop/notebook
