Drivers for windows 7 (satellite c875d)

Hi! I bought a satellite c875d-s7105 which had windows 8 pre-installed. I will send it to my parents and they aren't familiar with windows 8 so I installed windows 7 (32bit) deleting all recovery partitions for windows 8. Everything is fine except, i can't find the drivers for ethernet controller, sm bus controller, and most importantly usb controller driver. I tried the drivers on toshiba's support section, i tried driver genius professional, and driverpack solution. This is frustrating. Please help.

Please give us the part number for that computer. It looks something like PSCBEU-01100F.

 

You may need to install the 64-bit version to obtain all the drivers and utilities. (That's if we're lucky.)

Satellite C875D-S7105 (PSCBGU-001009)

 

Have I got that right?

 

US drivers and utilities are here. Looks like there are many for 32-bit Windows 7.


i can't find the drivers for ethernet controller, sm bus controller, and most importantly usb controller driver. I tried the drivers on toshiba's support section


The SM Bus Controller should be handled by this one.

 

   Intel Chipset SW Installation Utility

 

This should take care of the Ethernet.

 

   Atheros LAN Driver

 

And this should supply USB 3.0.

 

   USB3.0 Driver

 

If things don't work right, it may be that they were installed in the wrong order. So far as I know, it's still best to install the chipset and display drivers prior to all the others.

"error

Don't know what the trouble might be. I would start again with a clean install of Windows and install that one first.

Re: Drivers for windows 7 (satellite c875d)

same thing with the 64bit. i'm starting to think there is a setting in bios i need to change. i went through it several times and couldn't find anything. is this laptop out of warranty now since it doesn't have windows 8 in it anymore?

Yes. But it's back in warranty after you restore the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents using Toshiba recovery media.
