Windows XP on Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747 Laptop

Here are the locations of the drivers that I was able to find:
RealTek Audio Drivers
Atheros Wireless
TI SD Card Reader
Graphics Driver
Modem Driver

After the wireless is working you can go to Windows Update and it will give you the LAN Driver and SD Card Reader Driver.

The only driver I have yet to find is the modem driver. Also, I am trying to find a better power management control. I can't change the LCD brightness manually.


  1. Thanks for this. I didn't realize you could grab the Atheros Wireless adapter from the Toshiba site. I just posted a similar article.

  2. Did you have any problems with the sound popping and skipping?
    Although you probably don't have XP still installed on your laptop, I'm wondering if you had the same problem as me, I also have a a215-s4747.

    I found a program called BrightnessController by Sven Groot. It controls the brightness pretty well on my a215, just incase you install XP again.

  3. I never had any problems with sound. But I don't have XP installed anymire. Sorry. I'd check the driver.

  4. I saw you put XP on your satellite laptop. Did you have a problem getting the touchpad to work? If so what did you do to fix it and what driver did you find that worked. I have been trying for hours.

    Thanks alot sir.
