Here are the downloads for this model from Toshiba.
I assume you are running XP SP2 , choose this in the OS box.
 I would start with the Display Driver Special as it has the ATI chipset driver in it.

If you still can't find what you need, try this:
Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Information. Click on "components" and highlight "problem devices". Any hardware device with a driver problem will be listed here. Make a note of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will contain a Vendor number and a Device number (VEN. . . . DEV. . . .)
both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:

http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  First try the manufacturer's website.  If no joy there, try a driver database like Driverguide:

These hardware diagnostics are free:

Siw:

If you have problems downloading, use the System Indformation proceedure in my post above to find out the manufacturer of the driverless chips...
