You can get them from here click here.

If you know what graphics model is installed you can also get the latest from ATI/nVidia sites. G

Hi Crossbow7, Thanks for the site, I dont know how you did it cos I naver came accross the site in all my serchers. I managed to get I driver but when I try to install it I get a message "Setup cannot proceed because the length of the specified directory path plus the insallation folder name exceeds 95 characters. Please shorten one or both the specified limit and try again". How do I do this?

Where are you downloading the driver/s to before installing? Try downloading again and change the destination to your C drive (C:\) and run the installation from there.

Place the downloaded file in the root folder (usually C:) & then try running it from there. You can move it to a more appropriate location later if needed.

It took me a while to find it. G

Ok I have done what was asked installled the driver but I get a red horizantal screen with fine line of black and red and then the dreded blue screen for 2 seconds and then it prompts me to start in safe mode.
At the moment without the driver my screen shows fine red and black lines vertically bit my desktp and computer works. The display setting are at 32bit high colour at 1024 x 768 pixal and divice manager shows display driver missing. so confused not knowing what to do.

I notice there are 2 drivers offered for 'Display Driver' at Toshiba - ATI & Intel. Which one did you install, & did you choose the correct one for your OS?

Do you know what graphics is in the laptop? If not, download & run the free standalone version of SIW click here. Click on Video (under Hardware) in the left pane. What does it say in the right pane? G

T0SH, my initial post has a direct link to the Equium M40X driver downloads at Toshiba Europe :-). You may need to refresh your browser if it doesn't work the first time. G
