i should also add i cannot get on the internet with that laptop, so i need to save the drivers to my flash and then install on the one that needs them..

Satellite A305-S6825 (PSAG0U-00U00K)

 

 

That model belongs to part-number family PSAG0U, which translates to the European part-number family PSAG0E.

 

You'll find plenty of XP drivers and utilities here.

 

The order of installation matters. Install the Intel chipset software followed by the Intel display driver prior to any other driver. Install the Common Module before any other Toshiba utility.

Ignore Device Manager. If you've tried to install devices already, begin again with a clean install of Windows XP.

everything is fine but i cant get wireless.  i downloaded the realtek driver from the realtek site but the files are non executable, just a security catalog and some dll's.  everything is set, just no wifi!!

So you sorted things out. That's good.

 

You don't have a Realtek wireless adapter, of course. Yours is by Intel and it's on the Toshiba site.
