I have an old Toshiba Satellite A25-S3072 laptop that I just formatted and loaded Windows 7 on. I am looking for some type of utility that can help me scan and locate the correct drivers for this laptop. Does anybody know of a good FREE utility? Most of what I have found requires a $30.00 purchase or more.

Thanks,

A few things aren't working - Wireless and Audio are the two main items right now. I have it connected to Internet via ethernet cable for now.

Your Satellite A25-S3072 is in the same part-number family (PSA20U) as the Satellite A25-S307. Here are the hardware specifications.

Here is the drivers page on Toshiba's website. Have you tried installing any of those?

also you can use "speccy" to find out what hardware you have and look to the hardware makers site for drivers

This will help you with running Speccy and explain how to post the results.

  • [
  • Go to Piriform's website, and click the big Posted Image button.

    Next, click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version.

    You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.
  • After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
  • Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
    Posted Image

    Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot

    You will see the following prompt:
    Posted Image

    Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

    Posted Image

    Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the Posted Image button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

    Congrats! You have just posted your specs!


Once you have done that we can help. Also look in the device mananger and make sure the video driver is loaded and not a generic VGA driver.

Thanks
Roger
