2005 Toshiba Satellite M45-S269 Windows 7 Installation

I just installed Windows 7 on my 2005 Toshiba Satellite M45-S269 that was designed for Windows XP. However, my sound will not work due to the fact that the drivers are not supported for Windows 7. Does anyone know where I can find the right drivers, or a solution to my problem? Your help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Your laptop uses Realtek AC97 audio drivers... download em -=> here
You can try the win 7 driver, but due to the age of your computer you may have to use the XP driver installed in XP compatibility mode... Hope this helps...

I have an old Toshiba Equim Laptop and have tried installing Windows 7 on it. Everything is okay except for no drivers for the built-in Wireless adapter and Intel Graphics chipset. So it went back to XP!

Good to hear that, can I use the same license key for my Toshiba installation?
I thought that you need a special License for windows 7 . My laptop came with windows Vista but I bought windows 7 ultimate DVD.

Could I have used the Toshiba License for windows 7 ?

The license is software specific, so the answer there is yes. If you want to go back to vista, just use the vista DVD that came originally with the Laptop.

Additional drivers

Anyone know where I can find the rest of the drivers I need for my Toshiba Satellite M45-S269 to get it up to speed with Windows 7? (graphics, device, etc.) The only drivers I was able to get were the audio drivers.. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Not if that key is for Vista.

You'll need to buy a Win7 key.
