You'll have to go to the hardware manufacturer's websites if Toshiba doesn't have the drivers. Keep in mind, there may not be drivers available for XP. Should have checked that before removing Vista.

Hello,

There are often lots of third party software utilities known as driver packs that hold info on lots of device drivers, SiSoft Sandra also might help you identify any unidentifiable hardware on your machine, this will help you locate drivers for specific components such as chipsets, vga and lan etc.

... there's NO guarantee with these and make sure that your antivirus is up to date.

You should have left Vista intact & installed XP on a separate partition...at least you'd have had an OS to fall back on. As Jennifer stated, there *may* not be XP drivers available for your hardware. You should have searched for them BEFORE you wiped the HDD.

If the WinXP drivers listed on the Toshiba site don't work it may be because you got bad downloads or are not applying them correctly.

Are they are listed for your exact model?

yes they are for the exact model, i just open the zip file and install it, also i've tried updating and reinatslling the driver from hardware directly, no luck yet.
