Have loads of patience with this tasking please. Recommendation is to put on a retail version of XP OS desired, no external components plugged in, and let the new Hardware wizard locate the devices. I would initially check present OS Device Manager and copy down manuf's name of devices or use BELARC Advisor template for assistance here,you will also need to go into the BIOS and reset the hard drive to 'compatability' mode for the SATA harddrive device. 

These have worked for some Toshiba users. Use in order posted please.

   ACHI XP F6 Install Tool for Windows XP 

   Intel Matrix Storage Manager

 

Here is some drivers for you:driver_wifi_realtek_os2009078a.exe,driver_modem_26470A.exe,

util_sd_memory_26023A.exe

A215-SP6806 (PSAFGU-06301F)

 

 

You're in luck!

 

That model is in part-number family PSAFGU, which maps to PSAFGE for European machines.

 

Go to this European download site and look up the Satellite A210 with Short Model No. PSAFGE.

 

You'll find 31 drivers, utilities, and so forth for Windows XP.

 

You'll also find 30 drivers for 32-bit Vista in case they're needed.
