I cant install windows 7 on toshiba m400-s4032, its saying


It is possible that your model is supported for Windows 7, if it was manufactured before 2007. No models made prior to 2007 are supported.
If you look at this page of supported units, you will notice the Portege M400 has an asterisk beside it. Read the note at the bottom for those units so marked, your model would be one of those units.

Check out the bulletins on how to upgrade to Win7 here and see if your specific model is supported.

Toshiba Portege M400-S4031 Windows XP replaced hard drive SATA used restore cd from Toshiba after loading setup screen says finished and to restart but when restarted computer error (can not find hard...


.Thats because your restore cd does not contain the Sata driver. Go to toshiba site and find the sata driver. You will need a floppy drive (a usb one would be good). Burn the driver to a floppy and load it into the drive. Now when you start to install the restore cd at some point near the beginning you will need to tap F6 (it tells you at the bottom of the screen) which tells xp to look at the floppy. It will install the driver and continue installing xp. simples??

How do i instal drivers for my graphic card on laptop toshiba portege 4010.operating sistem is xp


http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp#

You need to find the full model number to download the driver, but you can either do it on the laptop or another computer and transfer it to a thumb drive. Should be in an executable file or compressed folder. XP can open both using windows explorer by double-clicking.

My Toshiba M400 did not read hard drive!


You need to activate the Raid diver. This can be done by slipping it into the XP install or adding the Raid Drivers at the time of installing the operating system. See Toshiba.com support pages for a copy of the Raid drivers

Toshiba Portege M400 to Vista


Here's a link for Toshiba's UK site. I looked around a bit and they don't seem to offer much in the way of drivers. You might try driverguide.com I've found it to be a good place to find those hard to find drivers, plus it's easier to use than most manufacturer's sites.
