I have a Toshiba Satillite  C855-S5192 (laptop) that came with Windows 8. My harddrive crashed, I replaced it. I had a copy of Vista and installed it. Vista does not seem to have the drivers for this computer's wifi. I can not find the right driver. Any ideas? Thanks! :)

Most likely Vista will be a No Go. It would be best to install the Win 8 OS your laptop came with. Since your original HD is dead, restoring the OS from there is now history. If you created the factory recovery discs, hopefully you did, you can reinstall using those. If you lack a recovery set of discs you can order them from Toshiba, under Get Recovery Media from here: https://support.toshiba.com/repair  Recovery discs are inexpensive. You will need to provide the serial number of your laptop to get the correct set.

I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!
