Where can I find drivers for my Toshiba Satellite 1400 Laptop?

I am trying to find drivers for my Toshiba Satellite 1400 laptop. Most importantly I require some video drivers - due to slow rendering of windows and effects.

I am running Windows XP Service Pack 2.

Specific file locations please.

Recheck your model number:
and go to this website:

Maybe we can walk through and find the drivers from the manufacturers...
1. Right Click on My Computer, Left click on Manage.
2. Click on Device Manager, you should notice on the right hand side icons with a yellow symbol next to them, this shows the device is unknown, or drivers are not installed.
3. Right click a device you are looking for, left click on properties.
4. Click on the Details tab on the top of the menu that popped up.
5. You should see some code in the middle that looks similar to this:
          "PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_169C&SUBSYS_308&"
The important peices are:
 VEN_14E4    is    Vendor 14E4
 DEV_169C    is    Device 169C    for     Vendor    14E4

You can take this information to the website http://www.pcidatabase.com and find the specific device information for the drivers, then go to the manufacturer website and see if they make drivers for Windows XP, some hardware is Vista specific and the manufacturer's do not have driver support for Windows XP.

*Once you are in the Vendor and are searching for the Device you can hold CTRL and press 'F'.
-This is the Find feature, type in the Device ID and it will find it much quicker, since some pages are quite long.

Hope this helps!

Thanks. I realised you have to be more specific with model numbers not just the series.
