Did you not have a driver cd with it? Old Toshibas should have a driver cd along with the factory restore cd(s)

Try Toshiba's website - you'll need the model + serial but they have drivers for old lappies.

Hi and welcome to the Forum.
Looking at specification of your laptop I do not think you will find a driver for Windows 7. Indeed if you have managed to get Win 7 installed and working on this laptop I would be surprised. The quoted minimum specs required are;
1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

How far have you got with installing Win 7 on this machine as I doubt very much if it will ever be successful. How old is the laptop?

32 bit
 
 

when I got the laptop, it already had windows 7 installed on it. this laptop must be more than 3 years old. Driver model may be is " Mobile Intel (R) 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express chipset family "

When you boot up the machine what do you see? What makes you think you need a graphics driver?

So where is the problem? I think with just ˝Gb RAM you are lucky it works at all!

Need more than just A-80 for the model number as from looking at these two reviews of the A-80 is can have either the ATI X300 of Nvidia Go 6200,
