    You might have to click on the Detailed Spec tab for each of the sub model, and see which one has a part number & UPC number that matches yours.

    For example, A300-ST3511 has part # PSAG8U-05K02C, UPC # is 883974191529. I'd imagine there's a sticker somewhere on the bottom or in the battery compartment w/ one of these.

    Or, if you right click on My Computer and select properties, maybe the sub model is listed there?

    I guess you weren't able to find out what sub model of A300 you're using? For Intel drivers, you can try Intel's site and let it scan your laptop. You'll need to use IE for that. The scan won't work w/ Firefox. Click on Run Intel Driver Update Utility.

    It should work, but there's no guarantee. I tried it some time ago w/ a Dell laptop. The driver the utility suggested didn't work. I ended up download one from Dell's site.
