    I have the same problem...

    I got everything working except the function keys and the volume control knob/mute button and the top row of media buttons. Also, when the computer returns from standy, weird things seem to happen, like the screen getting tons of weird lines or colors in it, or a BSOD relating to the ATI video card file.

    Here's the drivers I used, in the order that I installed them:

    [AMD M690G Chipset.zip|http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/357481/Toshiba%20L305D-S5893/AMD%20M690G%20Chipset.zip]
    [Integrated ATI x1250 Video.zip|http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/357481/Toshiba%20L305D-S5893/Integrated%20ATI%20x1250%20Video.zip]
    [Realtek High Definition Audio.zip|http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/357481/Toshiba%20L305D-S5893/Realtek%20High%20Definition%20Audio.zip]
    [Toshiba Modem.zip|http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/357481/Toshiba%20L305D-S5893/Toshiba%20Modem.zip]

    I also downloaded and installed a few other things, software, utilities and whatnot, but I'm not going to upload them as well until I find out that they're the correct ones... If anyone else has any other tips, please post them! Lets get this thing solved!

    -Andrew

    Raver,

    Thanks for the info, but the only thing Toshiba shows availible for our system is mostly just Utilities, and the only drive for XP is the Modem driver (which I also listed above).

    However, I used those utilities, along with some others, but am still unable to fix the following problems:

    1) After returning from standby or hibernate, system going crazy (locks up, blue screens, or gets funky video that flashes and has lines through it and locks up)
    2) Function (FN) keys do no work and media keys along the top (mute) do not work, and the volume control knob does not work

    I'm not sure about those other drivers... I did an upgrade from my other laptop, so I guess I already had those drivers installed...

    Also, if you do Windows Updates from Microsoft, that gives you a whole bunch more drivers as well.

    Try WLAN driver from http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/?page=downloads
    Ok you have one non-European notebook model but I believe you can use WXP cam driver from European support site - http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads.

    There you can find drivers for Satellite L300D.

    I believe Windows XP automatically recognized the camera. Either that, or it found the driver for it on the Windows update website...

    j.pablo,

    I upgraded from a Sony laptop, so I think I already had drivers installed for the wireless card, and memory card reader... But maybe Windows just automatically recognized the camera and SD card reader? Either that, or it got those from the Windows update website... Try that as well...
