Question about Toshiba Satellite 3000-S353 3005-S303, and 3005-S403 14.1 LCD Display HSD141PX11-B- K000811740 CD-ROM Drive
I added 2 new sticks of 256 memory and a 60 gig HD. Running XP and all is fine except for a sound issue I have posted here in this forum.
The system goes in and out of standbye very well, boots very well.
I keep it cleaned very well C-Cleaner, RegCure and I use Defraggler.
I did one Bios update but still am concerned that it is from 2002 and not newer.
Driver Detective and BiosAgentPlus say I have alot of missing updates but since I redid this HD from scratch (old 20 gig crashed) I am careful just exactly what I do update.
Caution: AC'97 audio codec for some reason as an update for the Crystal codec crashes this system, blue screen of death.

Windows 2000 runs best on the s353. I have tried running Windows XP on it, but ran into driver issues (Toshiba never released XP drivers) and there's not enough memory (I also have 256MB).
I doubt it's even possible to install Vista on that computer.
If you're running Windows XP, you could just work with it, you could upgrade the memory, or you could back up all your data, reformat, and install 2000. Note that I do not recommend Windows ME, and that I've had issues running Windows 98 on mine.
If your computer is running an old version of windows but it's an old installation and you've not maintained it, you might just need to run a CCleaner scan, defragment your hard drive, and disable any software that's running in the background and doesn't need to be (but don't disable your antivirus :P)
