    please post your exact model no. (maybe found on a sticker at the bottom of the laptop)

    Toshiba offers drivers for various satellite a45 and a55 models bot no a50

    You would have to call Toshiba tech support for the proper disk and more than likely order the whole restore disc set, it will cost a few bucks but it will be worth it and you will get iti in the mail in a few days.

    Or you can try this download SIW

    http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html

    It can be run from anywhere and does not install on the computer but will show all info on the computer and then get the motherboard manufacturer and part number and then get the drivers from the motherboard manufacturers web site.
