Hello,

I have a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5814 and I just did a clean install. This was the only way to get system back to working conditions. The install was ok, however now I need WiFI drivers and Video Drivers. I don't have original disk. How can I get these drivers?

Thanks,

You need to go to the Toshiba support site for your model and look for the drivers.

Try here:   http://driversinstalled.com/ for starters.

Went to Toshiba's site but couldn't find any drivers for Vista and my model.

The other way is to approach Toshiba for a set of Recovery CD's. Most vendors charge a modest fee for recovery CD's but it is often the best approach. Otherwise the option above is probably the available recourse.

The Toshiba support page with all your drivers for download for Satellite

A205-S5814 is HERE

You have to select your OS or you will get 7 or more pages to sift through.  Choosing Vista nets only 4.  You can further narrow selection by Category.
