Driver Max it is free.But maybe someone will come up with a better solution.

The laptop in question is a Toshiba Equium P300 and I wouldn`t worry about the drivers too much. Load the Operating System and then work out what you`re missing in Device Manager. Then go to the Toshiba Site click here and enter your details. You`ll find every driver you need there!

For future use DriverMax will also back up all your existing drivers - then after formatting and reloading your OS you can restore the drivers. Sadly too late in this case.

Drivermax was very useful after I did a clean reinstall recently (but I didn't find it that intuitive to use). Had to go to manufacturer's site for one - think it may had been the graphics card.
