    ethernet controller

    Did you try looking for your drivers on the Toshiba support site here?

    > You might best to start with chipset drivers and then network drivers (so you can then download the rest over your network)

    I just posted the WinXP drivers for that laptop but all the needed drivers for Vista and w7 are on toshibas web site.

    Yes first chipset then network and then run Microsoft uppdate and if you need more drivers after that download them...

    Can you remember what graphics card model you have?

    thanks friends(looking around and DjKraid)
    since i am not tech guy i dont understand the language you use about computer.
    i tried to download and somehow i manage to download that Realtek ethernet stuff and once i set it up i could connect to internet and then i use automatic search featuer to install the other drivers but still i can not install SM Bus controller and i still dont know what is that for? but overall i am happy that graphics are a back to normal and i can use internet at the same time.
    cna you tell me where to see graphic card model i dont know where to look because it only showed that i dont have standard VGA graphic adaptor. but now its ok because of online search feature.
    but i cannot attach photo or link or screen shot because i have not posted 5 time here

    Hi adl

    "SM Bus Controller" is usually for an internal card reader (for example, to read a memory stick)

    Try this. List any Problem Devices
    • Make sure all your devices are connected and powered on
    • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
    • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
    • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post

    Try using your model number. The one that starts with L300- ????. This should let you pull up what you need.I have a toshibal laptop to. Thats all I used on mine to get the drivers I needed.
