    Pls help: DPTF driver needed Toshiba P55W - HW ID included


    need the right DPTF for this. It is a satellite P55W-B5224 [which I do NOT recommend to any sane person]
    Toshiba does not reveal where they hid this driver. the system had 2 hard drive crashes in one year, this is a clean install on the replacement drive and I'm down to this one driver issue. hoping this will resolve the processor throttling [choking, actually] also [i7 ]

    so far no luck. I'm not wanting to randomly try the suggestions from other vendor but may have to...

    thank you for any help

    A semi-random suggestion: try the Windows 8.1 driver.

    unfortunately the associated webpage is m,alicious [that is the 'link to mftrs' page - probably a bogus link to malware]

    tried that one this morning and it bluescreened. my own fault because when the installer ran it gave me the "old replace newer" which may mean either that the PCI device isn't associated with DPTF or it is misinstalled, which isn't very likely with win 10.

    so part of the issue is that the "PCI Data Acquisition"... moniker is mis-associated with DPTF, when in fact it is something diff.
    i don't know what. it is not card reader, or camera, or bluetooth, or keyboard/fn, ... all those are ok
