any sort of service to hunt down drivers automatically?

I just did a clean install on my laptop and I am wondering if there is a quick and easy service to hunt down the necessary drivers i need, versus browsing the toshiba website for hours. I do have access to the internet on the computer because I have the wlan adapter driver installed.

Thanks!

The standard advice is to avoid driver update gizmos in general.

Can you enter a model number or perhaps a serial number or tag number at Toshiba support site and get directed to all appropriate drivers quickly?

Don't use automatic driver updaters. I learned that the hard way
For these two (Graphics): Nvidia Geforce 9600 gt/ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
You could try this :
Nvidia : NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Automatically Detect NVIDIA Products *will need java to run*
AMD: AMD Driver Autodetect
Note that these may not work, since Toshiba is manufacturer. If so it will simply tell you, it cannot find the right drivers or the device.
