Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.
If you did a clean installation from a Windows 7 disk it won't contain all the drivers for your laptop.
Drivers should only be downloaded from an official Toshiba site.
The page at the link below contains the download links for all drivers for your model
and operating system.
I'm not sure what that means. Are you saving the drivers to a flash drive on another machine and then plugging it
in to the laptop and running the executable?
On that page there are 3 wireless drivers listed for download depending on the model of wireless adapter
that came with the laptop. (Atheros, Intel or Broadcom)
Click Start and in the Search area type: device manager and open the Device Manager search result.
Expand the entry for Network Adapters. The wireless adapter should be listed there.
If the driver is missing the wi-fi adapter may be listed under Other Devices as a network controller.
Thanks. That's the LAN (wired) adapter. In Device Manager do see anything that says network controller
or PCI commnications device?
Please only respond on this page. Opening new questions generates new charges. I had the other two
questions closed so you won't be charged for them.
Thanks. Right click on the PCI controller and select Properties.
Click the Details tab.
Under Property use the dropdown arrow to set the value to Hardware Ids
Let me know the PCI/VEN numbers
If I have those numbers I can determine which driver is needed.
Thanks. That's Intel so on the download page install Intel Management Engine Interface
That should fix one of the entries in Device Manager.
If there is still one left I'll need to have the numbers for that one.
At the top of this page I posted a link to a Toshiba download page for the laptop.
Here it is again: http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/computers/satellite/a660/psaw3a-07t00r/download?os=25
Go to that page and download the Intel Management Engine Interface
to a flash drive and move it to the Toshiba and install it.
Install the Intel Management Engine Interface
then open Device Manager and give me the PCI/VEN numbers
for what's left.
If you connect the laptop to your router with a network cable can you get it on the internet?
What is the exact wording of these entries in Device Manager?
Thanks. Those are all Intel numbers.
If you were using just the Win7 disk you will need to install a lot of drivers.
Go to the download page and start with Intel Chipset SW Installation Utility
There's no time limit on this though it's after midnight where I'm at so I'll be calling it quits for tonight.
Hi. Any progress with the laptop?
