Here's a link for the specs on the 285.58 driver. If you click on "supported product" and go down to the section entitled "GeForce 8 series", you'll see that the 8700's are not listed as supported by this driver.
Go to www.nvidia.com, click on "Download Drivers" and enter the following options:
You should be taken to the page for the 266.58 driver. That one should work for you.
The 266.58 driver page does have a note about "Notebooks supporting Hybrid Power technology with Intel chipsets are not supported by this release." Not sure if that applies to you or not, but there has to be some reason that this driver isn't working with your hardware.
Here's a link to the model content page for your model Toshiba Satellite. If you click on Downloads, and then refine on a category of "Display", you'll see that they only have drivers for Vista and Windows 7. Now that doesn't mean that there's no hope, but I have a feeling that it's going take some digging (Google) to find the right driver for you.
