    BUMP! just got a s6267. I installed linux and could most things to work except for the modem (its software) and the touchpad. Due to a new position available in my company, I will need to have windows installed. I do not own a copy of vista, and the recovery CD is a joke. Keeps telling me that this machine is not a Toshiba product.

    Any update on the drivers?

    XP drivers for the P205 from Toshiba Spain in english .ver:
    http://es.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=ES

    1. Select Usa & English =(pais & idioma)
    2. Portatiles (laptops)
    3. Satellite Pro // trust me :)
    4. Satellite Pro P Series
    5. Satellite Pro P200
    6. Windows XP
    7. Todos =(all files)
    8. now click on Buscar (search)

    now you see all the files,for the display drivers you better go to intel website http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...&OSFullName=Windows* XP Professional&lang=eng

    About F6/F7 Display Adjustment keys, only works for
    vista not for Xp yet, But works when the PC is booting to xp also in the bios, so press and hold FN+F6 or FN key & F7 to control the BRIGHTNESS in the bios or when booting, the setting stay when you run XP.

    Ok, I have a P205-S6267 Satellite, I installed XP.
    I have All Drivers I found here.
    They ALL Worked, EXCEPT Video Controller.
    I tried like 10 different Intel Chipsets, my Classmate said it was 'NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300'.
    So I tried like 10 of those Drivers that were 'supposed' to work for that.
    But I still have:
    Video Controller
    Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
    neither of the 2 are working.
    so, if this is what I have, Please tell me where I can Download the Driver.
    I've spent Days on this one Driver allready.

    thanx - Da-Man

    I came across the Satellite A100 notebook, that has also the Agere HDA modem inside. I found aproperiate driver on toshiba support site, but with a little workaround:
    Try to choose only the notebook model number and OS in the form at support website of toshiba. Do NOT fill any info about country, language or type of downloads. This lists all downloads in all languages for given notebook model. Then You should be able to find the modem driver as did I (eg. modem driver is available in UK english, but not US english).

    Good luck

    You can always google and go the Toshiba Europe driver download site and get the XP Drivers for most of the Toshiba Models... I just put XP on an A305
