L305D-S5893 XP Drivers

Does anyone know where to get XP drivers for network, wireless network, sound etc for the L305D-S5893 laptop?  Toshiba does not support XP for this model and it is quite frustrating to not have these services with XP.  If not, does anyone know the name of the motherboard (as these devices are integrated into the mother board)?

 

Thank you in advance.

Unless you're prepared to spend many hours searching - and then probably not locate them all - you're better off restoring Windows Vista to that machine.

 

If you persevere in spite of that, see the thread Windows XP Drivers for Satellite L305D-S5890.

Thank you Jerry, that has helped a lot.  I spent several day on getting all the necessary drivers, but I was able to get all but the modem, which I don't need.

I was able to get the wireless driver from following the link Jerry provided in the second post listed here.  Here are some others that I found:

 

AMD M690G Chipset.zip 
Integrated ATI x1250 Video.zip 

Realtek High Definition Audio.zip
