Toshiba Satellite A70 - Looking for vid driver to run Win7

Recommended Posts

pn3301

Hi there, I apologize if I'm not in the right forum for this, but I really help. I'm trying to get a video driver for a Toshiba Satellite A70 (PSA70-RW100E) to run under Win7. The card installed is ATI Mobility Radeon 9100 IGP. Doesn't work with Win7 and Toshiba only supports this laptop up to XP. It defaults to Standard VGA Adaptor. I tried a bunch of other ATI drivers, but couldn't get any to work.

Could you offer any advice? I can also attach the original XP driver if it would help. The filename is SA70BXVD.exe available at the Toshiba site: Satellite | A70 | PSA70-RW100E

Many thanks,

Jeff

Go with the highest version that is WHQL certified http://laptopvideo2go.com/drivers?dev=5835⊂=FF021179&whql=0〈=0&orderby=version&dir=desc&os=&os[]=win7x32&os[]=win7x64

Edit: Is your card a Mobilitiy Radeon 9100 IGP AGP? http://www.pcidatabase.com/search.php?device_search_str=5835&device_search=Search

I had some luck installing from this driver.

Extract to a folder. The driver you're looking for is under the 2kXP_inf folder.

C2_17350 is the one I used. That seems to work for the ATI mobility radeon 9100 IGP.

It wont automatically detect, but if you click the Have Disk option, select that driver, the 9000/9100 shows up and you can select it from there. It'll warn you that its not guarenteed compatible, but you can use it anyways.

Got this Toshiba Satellite A70 with ATI Mobility Radeon 9100 working at 1280 x 800 this way. Also gave the option for multiple displays.

Hope that helps someone.

This driver doesn't work with anything that needs the graphics card itself (DirectX, etc.)

It gives a BSOD with one of the driver DLLs.
