    Is this a laptop or desktop, what is its exact make and model?

    Have you downloaded all the relevant drivers from the machine manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer?

    Looking for the driver you listed now. The computer is a Toshiba Satellite L655D-5066S. Had Win 7 originally, I installed Win XP Pro after HDD failure.

    No luck. Toshiba says that Win XP does not suipport this hardware, that it was designed for Win 7. Is there a generic driver that will work when the system says the device cannot be found?
