You will have to get your drivers from Toshiba. Generic drivers (from AMD) will not function on your laptop. Ask Toshiba if you can downgrade...and what drivers to use. Read the sticky "Updating Mobility drivers".

Hi I have been through this with a few customers and  Toshiba does not offer win 7 drivers for that laptop so really you have no chance to get everything working. Desktop's you can normally find the driver's but laptops need the specific driver's supplied by the laptop manufacture. Sorry Stumped I guess we answered at the same time. Now for the solution  if you get a copy of a program called startisback it will make all the menus start button included just like win 7 and you never have to see the tiles screen it works very well with no glitches.
