Hi,

I have check the driver that you need for you LAN and Wireless. Well Windows Vista and Windows XP are on the same platform. You can still actually install the driver that the Windows Vista is using. I already tried it to my computer and it allowed the installation process. If you need to download the driver, you can check out this website.

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modItemList.jsp?moid=1596141&rpn=PSAD6U&ct=DL&BV_SessionID=@@@@0718855006.1220962227@@@@&BV_EngineID=cccfadefdmgmefgcgfkceghdgngdgnj.0

Narrow down the search by selecting the O.S. (still have to choose Windows Vista) then select the category (LAN then your WiFi)

Download the driver and unzip the file to run the setup installation. Just click on "continue anyway" if it says that it did not pass the Windows logo testing. That will be fine.

Now you should be able to use the LAN and the WiFi.

Erdsjf2 the best way for you to do this is by contacting Toshiba and get an XP resource CD for your Satellite. this is to make sure that you will get the right drivers for each component of your Satellite.

Wireless drivers missing after downgrading to xp service pack 3


Most Toshibas drivers are specifically written for vista or windows 7. Ive noticed many problems when downgrading some machines especially with the drivers. If you haven't already, go to toshiba's website to search the drivers. If not, a 10$ program named "driver genius" works fairly well. I use it on a lot of computers that are having driver issues. Especially from a downgrade. Hope this helps!

Just now i formatted my laptop and installed windowsXP. For that i need all kinds of drivers to installed and i dont know were to find this.My laptop model is A135-S4527


I bought a Toshiba A135-S4527 with Windows Vista Premium installed on it. I quickly decided to downgrade to XP Pro. It took me days of searching to locate all the drivers since Toshiba does not provide XP drivers for this laptop. Installing all the updates from the Windows Update site did a lot of the drivers for me. HOWEVER, Windows Update will misdiagnose the display adapter. It will try to install a driver for the Intel 945GM but it must be some generic 945GM driver, because it will not give you full functionality (e.g., multiple display outputs, etc). Use the method I describe below to get the correct 945GM driver for this display adapter.

=====================================================
Hardware and drivers needed to run Win XP Pro on Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527
==============================================================
Run "infinst_autol.exe". This is an Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility (now called Intel Chipset Device Software I think). It will identify and load the proper driver files (.inf) for various things. I did this at the end last time, but if done near the beginning, it might take care of things like display adapter, etc. Check Intel's site for the most updated one. Go to http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/inf/

Display adapter is Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset Family
Driver was named win2k_xp14182.exe. I downloaded it initially from
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/deta...1&dwnldid=9683
&agr=n&lang=eng&prdmap=2301

Mouse is Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad
Driver file was called XP_2K.8.3.4.zip. Can be downloaded from the Synaptics website.

Wireless adapter is Atheros AR5006EG
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Ethernet adapter is Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Modem is Toshiba Software modem
Driver can be gotten from Win Vista CD.

During XP installation, drivers were automatically loaded for:
- multimedia card reader
- firewire port (IEEE 1394)
- DVD/CD drive
I have this for Mobile Intel 945GM Express drivers:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Prod...ProductID=2301

Using Atheros AR5xxx 5.3.0.35 for wireless drivers:
http://www.opendrivers.com/downloado...php?href=47456

Realtek High Definition Audio 5.10.0.5436
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOU...ver-R170.shtml

SmartCard 2.0.0.6
Haven't looked

Intel Chipset 8.3.0.1013
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...13499&lang=eng

Realtek RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet NIC
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/54582

I used a program called "driver genius" and it located the driver versions needed for this laptop.

I hate it when people say DOWNGRADE, Vista hasn't proven itself to be an upgrade yet. In order to get the proper drivers, you may have to open the machine and get the make and model of the devices you need drivers for. However, in most cases you don't. Try driverguide.com for the drivers. There you can search drivers by the machine model or hardware model.

Vista downgrade


You can try some of these.

The "mass storage" may be fixed after installing the chipset drivers listed.

What I usually do is use an el-cheapo PCMCIA ethernet card - (3-coms tend to work without needing drivers), and download the drivers directly to the laptop.
