    Hello theitguy,
    Look on the bottom of the laptop for a more detailed model number please.  This model should look something like L300-STxxxx.  Where the x's represent numbers.  Post that back to me when you find it.

    I believe this entry on toshiba's support site is the same base laptop:

    I noticed that you will need to select windows vista as your operating system - most of the drivers list support for XP, but do not show up in the filter when you actually select XP.

    The video chipset may be different on that laptop.  If so, here is the link to the intel site for the approprate driver:

    Without having more information, that is as good as I can give you.   If you haven't installed XP yet, you can get the device names from the device manager in Vista and I can help you get drivers that way.  The main drivers you need to note from Vista are:
    Storage (for the card-reader)

    Most other devices will work with default drivers, or drivers downloaded from Windows Update.

    Hope this helps.  Going back to XP is great, but it can be a pain with laptops.

    If you don't get all the drivers from the Toshiba website (Which is your first and best choice try this (it will also show you if you have all the drivers and what you need):
    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:
    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 and find the specific device information for the drivers, then go to the manufacturer website and see if they make drivers for your OS, some hardware is OS specific and the manufacturer's do not have driver support for all OS's.

    *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!
