AFAIK installing Nvidia driver on toshiba laptop is not different with installing on desktop.
1. download the driver from nvidia's web
2. chmod u+x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run (just in case it's not on executable permission)
3. ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run
4. edit /etc/X11/X86Config :
- on Section "Module" make sure:
* comment out Load "dri"
* there is Load "glx" entry
- on Section "Device" change Driver "nv" or Driver "vesa" into Driver "nvidia"

ps: make sure u install it without X sever running i.e. make sure the default on /etc/inittab is on mode 3
