Lost drivers since rebooting with Vista Home Premium CD.

Post by NorthernLites on 21st December 2010, 4:13 pm

I have had to clean up my system and reboot with the Vista disc.That was thanks to Thinkpoint arriving on my laptop. Since then I cant do much with the laptop. Apparently I dont have drivers. i have a Toshiba Satellite L350. I have downloaded the drivers from the Toshiba website on a flash drive. When I install it on my laptop it goes into scan then near the end says there is an error and stops. I have then downloaded the driver for Realtek and have been able to install it on the laptop but nothing has changed. I have a very basic knowledge of computers and have tried whatever i can possible think of. There are a bunch of yellow exclamation marks in the device driver list and certainly the cause of the problem. I just dont know what to do about all this and I desperately need to get my laptop going. Any help would be much appreciated.

if you able to use the internet under device drivers on each one of those,right click on one and it should bring up the window about uninstalling, update,rollback..click update.you can also go into the flash drive and if they are install exe.then do it from there.

You can use Windows Update to update your drivers, it is safe way. Let me know if it works.
