i NEED MOTHERBOARD DRIVERS FOR AN OLD TOSHIBA TECRA A2 LAPTOP WINXP MODEL No PTA20A-02R002

I HAVE A VERY OLD TECRA A2 LAPTOP MODEL No PTA20A-02R002 AND I NEED THE MOTHERBOARD DRIVERS

The most important driver I need is for the LAN Ethernet driver, the old laptop does not have a wireless LAN.
If I can get the ethernet driver I can connect to the net and use driver manager to find the rest of the drivers I require.

I hope you can assist. regards, Chuck

  1. http://www.drivertoshiba.com/tecra-drivers/toshiba-tecra-a2-windows-xp-drivers.html

    Scroll down on this page, I believe the chipset utility is what you're looking for. You'll also find all the other drivers on this page as well. I downloaded and test-ran the chipset driver, the installer seems to work. Of course I don't have that machine, so I didn't let it finish.
    You'll have to unzip the .rar, then just run the installer.
    Hope this helps!
  2. Thanks for your reply, I installed that driver but unfortunately that was not the driver I need, the old laptop does not have wireless lan, just an ethernet connection, it is for a pensioner friend of mine I am trying to get it to connect to the net for him.
    Any further suggestions welcomed.
    It is annoying not being able to use the driver manager to find the files I require.

    Thanks again for trying. regards Chuck.

  5. Ok, are you sure you've got the Tecra A2? Only reason I ask is because everything I've read so far says it came with Atheros wireless card......

    Here's a link to the Toshiba Support Site - there is a different chipset driver here than the one I sent before.

    Look around on this site, you should find what you need.
    Was the wireless card removed, perhaps?
    Hope this helps.
