Where can I find obsolete laptop drivers?

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 19 May 2018 21:01

A friend gave me an old Toshiba Satellite laptop. It's an L500-1XC. I cannot find the drivers for this. Somebody told me that you *can* still get obsolete drivers, but I forgot the name of the site.

There are many sites claiming to have the drivers, then they ask you to download their software. Hmm. Not a chance!

Any advice gratefully received.

Thanks.

Does the laptop need a connection to the internet? It doesn't currently have one.
