Please use this link to connect to Toshiba Support, which I posted earlier.

Just download the drivers you need to whichever computer you are currently using, copy them to your Toshiba, and then install them.

Yeah, look on the Dell site Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States] -> select a different product -> choose from a list of all Dell products...

appreciate the quick help and that iso of the win7 reinstall, everything is up and running again, i found the dell driver for the network adapter and i am going to download microsoft security essentials and use that for virus protection since i saw in another thread it seemed to be preferred.

You should also download and install the free version of Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download. Many of the gurus use those two in tandem to help keep their systems safe.

See what drivers that optional Windows Updates delivers after several rounds, then import the rest from the Dell Support Downloads webpage for your tag number.

You're very welcome.

Pleased to hear you've got your computer running again.

+1 for Malwarebytes and Greg's advice as you'll be deluged with updates over the next couple of days.

Thanks, done download

Thanks again. I sent the message that I couldn't find the download 15 sec before I found it. A bit too stressed out. Sorry. I took me all day today to download the 3.1 GB file, first at an internet caffe, then at home with my dongle (imagine an average of 50KB/sec). I live in the backwaters of the boondocks, so everything here is much more complicated. I made the dvd, and am installing it now (I hope) because the download was done in many steps with pauses in between, hopefully, no errors occurred in the download. As you may have guessed, I'm self-taught, which means I learn by my mistakes! Fortunately, there are people who know lots more who are willing to put up with our foibles. Thanks again, and I'll let you know if things worked out, or if I have to dedicate another day to a new download. (They could have supplied us with a win 7 DVD, don't you think? Not everyone can download a humungous file like that-once we know about it-easily!)
