Hi all,

I have several Toshiba netbooks which are being imaged for schools, using Windows XP.

The model number is PLL72C-02401D, And it says TOSHIBA NB510-024.

I cannot find drivers for the netbook for XP, specifically the Intel video driver, VEN_8086,DEV_0BE1.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

This unit shipped with Windows 7, so the prospect of installing XP on it is tenuous at best.

If you cannot find the XP video driver you need on the Intel website, then you are going to be out of luck I'm afraid.

Just for future edification, most computers that ship with Windows 7 simply cannot support running Windows XP because the drivers do not exist. If the computer shipped with Windows Vista then you have about an even money chance of being able to find the necessary drivers.

I understand, but the school board uses Windows XP with their images, and they just purchased hundreds of these netbooks. Luckily Intel is releasing a driver I've found, which is coming supposedly in August.

I have nothing to do with the ordering of the netbooks, I just have to get them working once they arrive.
