    After six hours of hunting on the net I finally managed to get together all the drivers necessary to run a Toshiba Satellite A215-S5818 perfectly on XP, Toshiba only have the Vista ones on their site. So you don't have the same boring experience I've packed them up and you can download them all from my site at the following link:

    Update Dec 2008.

    For various reasons I've moved the drivers on to rapidshare, I'm glad to see the thread has become a success.

    Day by day a XP driver install on a new computer becomes a harder experience :(

    It's still better than when you had to manually write the auto and config ,to install a sound card. Just love them mile long autoexec.s......

    The modtool does it for you. That part is pretty simple now.

    ddam you are a moran!

    The zip isn't a scam go get a life!

    It's free and not password protected. Don't believe me, download it!

    The modtool is for video, it doesn't fetch you all the drivers needed for a full working install on a Toshiba Satellite A215-S5818 with XP installed.

    Charming response.

    I didnt say the modtool fetched anything, I said I used it.

    And I did download your exe and it did ask me to register and pay to register.

    So... breath deep... relax....

    If I made a mistake (which I dont think I did) then so be it.

    See ya

    OK guys, calm down, I'm sure it's a misunderstanding.

    There seems to be a registration requirement to use the extractor, so I can understand where ddam is coming from. I'm hoping for an explaination to that. The EXE file does appear to open fine with WinRAR, so the drivers can be accessed that way.

    Cool, if I misunderstood how to use it, I apologize.

    Take care

    Ok, I could open it with winrar too.

    I got this working with alot less drivers than that just so ya know.

    The only thing I dont have worked out yet is the sm bus controller. No big deal yet.

    The smbus driver usually comes in the ATI motherboard set: AMD GAME! Drivers and Utilities

    Just choose custom install and it should let you untick everything but smbus driver... (i think)

    Cool, Ill give that a shot.

    I've now changed exe to a zip but the exe did open fine for me when I tested it locally before the upload.

    The way to answer is not to call someone a "scammer" but to state you have problems opening the file and I would have checked it out and corrected any problems with the file.

    No luck for me on that one. This one has been the toughest to find.

    I tried the drivers at listed in another post because the specs were similar, but no luck there either. Hmmm

    You are correct, I shouldnt have said scammer without investigating further. You know how frustrating it is after searching the net for hours on end though...

    Thank you for doing that, and thanks for providing this. I agree no conclusions should have been jumped to, but given the amount of spammers/scammers that are on the internet, it's understandable. I'll consider the problem dealt with.

    does the sound driver work?
    It did not work on my a215-s5818.
    The device couldnĀ“t be initialized
