My friend got a new laptop and didn't like Win 8 so she asked me to put Win 7 (64 bit) on it. No problem, I thought, I've done this dozens and dozens of times (with Dell PCs at work). Yeah right. I'm stuck. (Never dealt with AMD drivers before.)
So what I've got in Device Manager are 5 devices I've got to find drivers for (see image). With Dell I always liked to start with ethernet and network controllers so I could then get on the internet and download the rest directly to the PC. But I am not able to do that with the Toshiba. I keep getting the error "The RealTek Network Adapter/Controller was not found. If Deep Sleep Mode enabled Please Plug the Cable." I troubleshooted this issue for about 3 hours to no resolve, but I came across something that said I needed to install the chipset first. Which is where I get stuck.
I read that the AMD driver is a combination of the graphics and chipset, but I can't find a driver that works on the Toshiba website. I downloaded and tried many but they won't execute. So then I went to the AMD website and downloaded the Catalyst software and what I thought was the chipset/graphics driver. But I can't figure out how to install this driver via the Catalyst. It seems like you need an internet connection in order to install it. Where am I going wrong here?
I've done a little desktop support, but I'm certainly no guru. (So go easy on the criticism please - thanks so much!)
