    Hi!

    I would like to ask for your help in the following problem:

    I bought a Toshiba L500-14Z (PSLJDE-001007G3) and I would like to use it with windows XP.
    I read that I must find the drivers manually for my hardware-s, but I am not sure...
    Which models have the same Chipset, LAN, Soundcard, Videocard, WIFI?

    I found only this information, and it was not enough for me:
    (I mean it is not too specific about the given hardware parts...)

    - T6500 Intel GM45 Express chipset
    (Any other GM45 Chipset driver can be used, or should I search for one with the same processor?)
    (Is the soundcard included in the chipset driver? If not... what sound driver should I use? - I didn't find any specification about the soundcard.)

    - Intel WiFi Link 5100 network adapter
    (Is it LAN + WIFI?)

    - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570

    I would really appreciate your help!
    Thx!

    Hi

    As you said the notebook supports the Mobile Intel(R) GM45 Express Chipset.
    The driver can be found here:
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=3032&lang=eng

    The Wlan card is Intel WiFi Link 5100AGN and the drivers are here:
    http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/?page=downloads

    The graphic card is a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570.
    I think you will need to check some 3rd party pages for a compatible driver because I didnít find anything on the Toshiba pageÖ

    Thank you for your very quick reply!

    Could you please help me with the soundcard driver either?
    I have absolutely no idea about the sound card. I did not find any details about that hardware.

    thx!



    PS: I should choose this driver, am I right?
    Intel PRO/Wireless 3945/4965/5100/5300 XP 32 12.4.0.21.1

    Hi

    I have a little bit searched with Google and I founded out that your notebook is equipped with Realtek ALC272-GR sound card.
    So have a look on the Realtek website. There you can find the newest HDA driver that supports the ALC272 sound chip (Version 2.32).

    Yes, thatís the right driver for Intel 5100 card.

    Hi again!

    Sorry to bother you all with my newbie questions, and thanks for all your help, but I still don't know these:

    1. As I understood: the GM45 Express Chipset is mainly about the video driver, ... but I have the HD4570 in this notebook. Should I install that GM45 driver, even then?

    2. The wlan works perfectly with the 5100 driver, but it seems I will have to install driver for the ethernet card seperately
    Could you please tell me what type of ethernet card is in it? - so I can find the correct driver...

    3. I didn't find the ALC272 2.32 on the realtek homepage, but I found it here:
    http://downloads.guru3d.com/Realtek-HD-Audio-2.32-Driver-download-2364.html
    Is it the correct driver?

    4. Should I install any other particular drivers? like monitor driver for example?


    Thx!

    This is a chipset on the motherboard. The graphic card (ATI) is a separate one.
    You can install this chipset driver.

    I assume you need a LAN driver. The LAN chip is a Realtek one and you could find the LAN driver on the Realtek page:
    http://www.realtek.com.tw/

    Yes, you need the Realtek HD audio ManagerÖ

    I see, but there are many versions... which one should I choose?
    (These are all 10/100/1000 Realtek, LAN ethernet cards with PCI)

    +RTL8110S-32 Single-Chip Gigabit LOM Ethernet Controller+


    +RTL8169S-32 Single-Chip Gigabit NIC Ethernet Controller+


    +RTL8110SB(L) Single-Chip Gigabit LOM Ethernet Controller+


    +RTL8169SB(L) Single-Chip Gigabit NIC Ethernet Controller+


    +RTL8110SC(L) Single-Chip Gigabit LOM Ethernet Controller+


    +RTL8169SC(L) Single-Chip Gigabit NIC Ethernet Controller+

    Is the correct driver among these at all?



    - Isn't there a page on the Toshiba site, that contains all of the detailed hardware components of the L500-14Z? I mean the exact LAN-chip (or card) type... the exact sound card type, etc...?

    Here is the right one:
    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=6&PFid=6&Level=5& Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

    There you can find drivers for different OS.
