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)

I can not get the mouse to work. Please explain why and where can I download a operating system disk for my Toshiba Satellite 3005-S303 for free?


Hi Midnight,

    Sorry to hear you mouse is not working.  Upgrading to a new operating system will only fix the mouse if the problem is software based.  If the mouse itself is broken a new OS will not help.

   If you do want to upgrade to a new (free) OS then I would suggest Linux Mint 10.  If you have used Windows in the past you should have no problems learning the new OS. I have installed Mint 10 on several machine with no problems what so ever, it just works.  You will have to download the ISO and burn it as an image to a CD or DVD.  This will create what is call a Live CD or Live DVD.  Once you have the Live CD or DVD, boot off the CD or DVD player.  This will make no changes what so ever to your system.  It will allow you to play with Mint 10 and to insure that you system is indeed compatible. If you like what you see you have the option of installing it next to the OS you already have or as the only OS on the HDD.  You can find Mint 10 here:

Speakers and mic input not working anymore


Have you done a windows update recently? It could have been caused by a updated driver that your computer doesn't really like.

Or is your output device set to digital instead to analog?

Thanks for your reply. I was working outside the house all day and we went out for dinner after to wind down.

I'll get back with you with a link if I can find a driver now that I know you have me and I have your model and series number.
