After a hard drive failure, I had to install a new hard drive and do a clean install of Windows 7. A recovery disk is not available. I've reviewed the driver download files for the P755 at the Toshiba drivers/downloads page. I followed the instructions to select my operating system (Win7, 64 bit) and then click on the type of driver I'm looking for (e.g. WiFi). Problem is that there are multiple DIFFERENT files. For example, under WiFi for my system there are wireless LAN drivers for Atheros, Realtek and Intel. There seem to be multiple choices (not just different version numbers) available on most categories I click on. So I don't know if I need to install all the drivers (unlikely). Compounding the problem, I haven't found the correct driver for my network adapter so I can't connect this computer directly to the internet.

To top it off, after guess-loading a variety of different drivers, the Satellite keyboard stopped working (no error message, mouse is still working fine). I can find no way to reenable it and I'm thinking that I may have to do another reinstall of Windows.

I've posted on the Toshiba forum but no response yet. Very frustrated. It should not be this difficult. Can anyone help?

Thanks, that info will be helpful. I think I will do another reinstall of Windows and start afresh.
