Hello there folks.
For some time now I am the proud owner of a Toshiba Satelite A100-192. I actually got it in October of 2006 and it is still alive and kicking; yeah, it is old, I know.
Now, here is the thing though. When I got my laptop, it had Windows XP pre-installed, and in case I wanted to format the hard drive and re-install windows and the drivers, a CD came with it to restore my laptop. However the OS in the disc is Windows XP, and here is my problem. I want to install Windows 7, but I can not find the drivers for the GPU. My GPU is ATI Radeon X1600.
In the past I installed windows 7 and I could not find the drivers. I searched for them myself and none of those I found worked. A friend of mine helped me, they did not work either. I called Toshiba Hellas (I am from Greece), they sent me some drivers, again they did not work. I called another company that works with Toshiba Hellas, their drivers did not work either. I had yet another friend of mine who owns a computer repair shop, still nothing. I have looked at the official site as well, however the drivers for that model do not exist.
I really want to install windows 7, but sadly the drivers have become a huge issue. And so I wonder if any of you people can help me. Yes, I am desperate, I won't deny it or lie about it. I need an upgrade on my system since I know that it can handle it with ease. I mean, hell, a friend of mine had the previous model of my own laptop, and she found the drivers for her GPU! It is really frustrating!
So please, guys and gals, I really want some help with this.
Thank you in advance.
