Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC
I have just installed Win XP service park 2 in my Laptop and I have removed Win Vista but I can not get the drivers for Ethernet controller and Display Drivers. Please help
Unfortunatley Windows XP Drivers For the Toshiba P205-S6287 Are Not Made , if you are aware of the Ethernet Controller model and the Display Driver Model it may be possible to locate them but after searching and Talking to Toshiba They arn't made for that Notebook
Sorry , your either going to have to Re-install Vista or just deal with the problems

This will work on your model to
When I decided to Downgrade/Upgrade my P205-s6337 to Windows XP Pro, Like everyone else I found out that toshiba just wasnt supporting
XP on their new systems. So started the search for drivers. I spent a few hours and finally got them all together and
got the laptop where I wanted it to be.
Ok here's what I decided to do, Firstly I installed windows XP, got all the drivers installed and made sure
there were no driver errors or any missing drivers.
Then I used Driver magician and backed all the drivers into a folder.
I then put a copy of driver magician into the folder, compressed it using winrar on max compression and uploaded
it to my server. Install the demo of driver magician and use it to do a driver restore for the drivers in that file.
Archive size is 21mb and uncompresses to 71mb
I then got all of the drivers that I had used and compresses them into a rar file using winrar and max compression
These are all seperate folders when the archive is uncompressed.
The reason for splitting them into 10mb files is because i have a sucky upload speed and I kept getting errors when i tried to upload
one big file or even split into 2.
Archive size is 134mb uncompresses to 140mb, Reason is the drivers inside are mostly all the Original exe files.
Hopefully this will help you if you have a p205.
I used these on a p205-s6337. I know they will work with other models as the hardware used accross toshiba models seems
to be pretty standard. I didnt include the driver for the camera, its a real easy one to get and i sont use the camera on the laptop
the resolution is way to low for my purposes. I have a sd/video camera hooked up
Atheros Wireless Lan
Flash Card Driver
Realtek Driver (lan)
SD Reader Utils
Realtek High Definition Audio Drivers
Intel Matrix Storage Manager
Fingerprint Utility with Drivers
Mobile Intel 945 Drivers
Wireless Lan Intel Drivers
As an end note. I have upgraded the ram in the laptop to 4gig and replaced the 200gig hard drive with a 350 gig.
Installed Windows Vista Ultimate 64 Bit
I get a windows Index score on the memory and processor of 4.8, 4.7 on the hardrive. But only 3.3 on the graphics card.
There's no way to upgrade the graphics on this system that I have found and Toshiba says there is absolutely no way to do it.
All in all with the upgraded ram and drive and a 64bit OS I feel pretty comfortable with the system now
Enjoy the drivers
