You will have to find the Windows 7 drivers from the hardware manufacturer website, since Toshiba will not have them most likely on their support site.  8.1 has been causing a lot of issues, so you may be best to just reinstall Windows 8 and stay away from 8.1.


As for email not working, are you using a Metro app for email, or some other program?  If a program on the desktop, what program are you using.


If you are going to use 8, download either Classic Desktop, or Stardock Software's Start8 & Metro mix, along with Chrome.  When I did run 8.1, my son still does on his computer, it was exclusively desktop mode all the time.  Only time I ever went into Metro, was for Personal settings.  My son runs the Netflix Metro app in Metromix with no problems.  Email is through his gmail account, no third party software.
