    Hi buddy,

    I donít know what Satellite L500D model you have exactly but I can really recommend reading the forum threads firstly before you start a new question. This was already discussed 100 times beforeÖ

    The AHCI driver you can find in display driver package on official Toshiba website:

    thank u very much for that advice, but i can't find any answer to the other threads that could help me. i've tried using the controllers found in the display driver package from toshiba, the package for win xp that is, but it isn't working either. still blue screen. i've bought the notebook 5 days ago specially to use it with xp. if i can't find a way to install it i'll have to take it back and recover my money. maybe u can help me find out at least wich is the manufacturer and the name for the motherboard and chipset, so maybe i can locate the controller easier . thanks
