Installed windows 7, have no network drivers

I recently bought a new laptop, a Toshiba Satellite C50D-A-043. It came with Windows 8, which I really don't like, so I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) on it. But I seem to have the following problems in Device Manager, under Other Devices:

Ethernet controller
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_FF1E1179&REV_07
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_FF1E1179
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&CC_020000
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&CC_0200

Network Controller
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8179&SUBSYS_019110EC&REV_01
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8179&SUBSYS_019110EC
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8179&CC_028000
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8179&CC_0280

SM Bus Controller
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_780B&SUBSYS_FF1E1179&REV_3A
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_780B&SUBSYS_FF1E1179
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_780B&CC_0C0500
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_780B&CC_0C05

Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7814&SUBSYS_FF1E1179&REV_01
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7814&SUBSYS_FF1E1179
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7814&CC_0C0330
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7814&CC_0C03

Unknown Device
ACPI\SMB0001
*SMB0001

USB2.0-CRW
USB\VID_0BDA&PID_0129&REV_3960
USB\VID_0BDA&PID_0129

I tried looking for some drivers but none seem to work. Please help? What can I do?

  1. You should be able to download the Windows 7 network drivers from the Toshiba web site. I entered the model number you listed above and receive an 'invalid entry' on the Toshiba support site. This is the only location from which you should obtain the driver. If you can't find it yourself, contact Toshiba and they should be able to get you the link to the driver download page for your laptop.

    I should note this computer was purchased in Canada. I have alredy tried the Toshiba.ca support site, and all the drivers there are for Windows 8 and 8.1 . As I have mentioned I have tried installing these drivers but still to no avail. Here is a link to the Toshiba site I was downloading from... http://support.toshiba.ca/support/isg/center/en/index.asp?s1=Notebook&s2=Satellite&s3=C50D-A&s4=PSCFWC-04300G

    Thank you, this driver got my Ethernet Controller to work. I imagine I'll find some solution to the other issues now that this computer is on the internet. Again, thank you very much!
