Okay, I'll bite. This one is for the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M on Windows XP.

 

   Intel Display Driver for Windows XP, 6.14.10.4953, 08/09/08

 

So it may work.

No such luck. :smileymad:  I received the following error while trying to run the setup for that display driver:

 

This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software.
Setup will exit.

 

Any other suggestions? 

 

Thanks, Jerry!

Hmmmm...

 

Well, what would you try next if you were in my position?  Any advice as to who I should contact or where I should look for these missing drivers?  Is it usually so difficult to find replacement drivers for a Toshiba laptop? 

 

I'm surprised to find that, so far, nobody (except for Jerry) has even touched this posting.  If anyone has any information or help to offer, I'd really appreciate it.

That's easy! I'd restore the hard disk to 64-bit Windows Home Premium.

 

If I wanted to run an XP program on it, I'd upgrade Windows to Pro and install XP Mode.

 

The upgrade is painless. It takes only minutes.

 

   Upgrade to another edition of Windows 7 by using Windows Anytime Upgrade

 

XP Mode adds a virtual machine with Windows XP SP3 for free.

 

   Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC Home

 

The last thing I would do is struggle with drivers. I'd buy another machine first.

Hmmm...

 

So, when you say you'd "restore the hard disk to 64-bit Windows Home Premium" are you assuming that I already have a 64-bit Windows Home Premium disc?  I bought my computer used, and it didn't come with a Windows Home Premium disc. 

 

Suppose I'd rather struggle with drivers than go out and buy a brand new machine or fork out $100 for Windows Home Premium... can anyone suggest a good way to go about finding the right driver for my machine?

See the section Restoring from recovery DVDs/media, which begins on p. 69 of the User's Guide.

Obtain the recovery discs from Toshiba.
