My laptop is Satellite L505-10z. I installed Windows 8 Pro and I notice that lots of drivers (especially TVAP) I downloaded from Toshiba support website (which are originally for Windows 7) not working! When will Toshiba release Windows 8 drivers? Will my model be included in the driver updates?

Thanks

Win 7 tools and utilities are made for Win 7 and not Win 8

I think you should ask Toshiba. This is user to user community.
But I think Toshiba would start with driver support if Win 8 would be available OFFICIALLY on the market.

I think Win8 will be a bit different and I can imagine Toshiba must develop new generation of tools and utilities so I donít think Win7 stuff will be compatible with Win8 OS.

Which models will be supported we will see when official support starts. The same was with Win7 and old notebook models delivered with Vista.
