Cannot locate ethernet driver for an amd chipset

recently i wiped my girl friends toshiba laptop and after i finished installing windows 7 64x professional i went to go do the windows up date and could not conect so thinking the wireless driver was not installed yet i tried to bridge the connection between mine and hers and it still didnt work so i went into her device manager and noticed the ethernet controller and network controller were not installed so i tried to locate the drivers on my laptop to put on hers but i was unable to find the driver for an AMD chipset only the intel chipset. if anybody has these drivers or can find a link for them that would be greatly apreciated

That driver won't be part of the chipset.

Seeing as Toshiba hasn't put up anything for that particular model oing to take a stab here a say that it likely has either Atheros or realtek for both the LAN and Wi-Fi, after looking at what is available for the two models immediately above and below it (C655D-S5301 and C655D-S5305). Both models list the same Atheros LAN driver, as well as both the same Atheros and Realtek wireless driver. Give one of them a try and see if it is the right one.

Your friend should have recovery discs. Use them to recover the operating system.
