Via Toshiba’s support site. Satellite L305-S5907 Drivers. Select your operating system as windows XP SP2.

On the second option box select “Driver”. Note there are 2 pages of drivers. Most importantly get LAN, Display, Wi-Fi, and Sound. Also probably get chipset and Touchpad.

There are multiple Wi-Fi drivers. Just download both. If the first one you try says you don’t have the supported hardware then just use the other one.

And the intel graphics controller. Otherwise the speed of the computer and the max resolution will be pathetic.

Does people still have to look for that stuff?

@wilhel1812: If they want any choice in their hardware and software then yes.

well, only 15 of 31 apps in my dock is made from apple. I have great alternatives for those, but i prefer apples. They intergate better with the system and my hardware.
