had complete hard disk failure, no recovery cd's had been created, reloaded windows 7, looked up and downloaded drivers from Toshiba, BUT there are only two video drivers listed, amd and Intel both marked "for supported model only" its an Intel machine so I tried the Intel driver but it doesn’t install, it just closes, which I gather if the matching hardware is not found is the default action for these drivers.
However I am stuck with "standard VGA graphics Adapter" all the other drivers loaded perfectly, ( I installed the Intel chipset driver first and rebooted, so it should be ok but it’s not)
Re: Satellite L500 - cannot install Intel video driver
in response to: assex
ok fixed it,
this is what i had to do so i guess there must be an error in the driver download,
I downloaded a fresh copy and tried to install, no joy, then i went looking for .inf files in the extracted driver download.
Found one called KIT19760.INF in the subfolder of the driver called Graphics, went to device manager, update driver, let me choose, then have disk, pointed it to the above file and the driver loaded, it loaded as and shows as "mobile Intel 4 series express chipset family"
Not sure if that is what its supposed to be but it seems to be working, so will leave well enough alone for the time being.
