Windows vista won't boot

tried downgrading to XP, and as others have noted, the process was cumbersome. I eventually found the correct drivers using the Satellite Pro model (U400-S1001X). Unfortunately, I was never able to install the WiFi since the Intel Chipset drivers kept on crashing XP (BSOD). Had the chipset drivers been installed correctly, I would've been able to install the drivers for WiFi.

The computer had a dead pixel right in the middle of the LCD screen. I contacted Toshiba, and they said they can't do anything since there needs to be at least 9 consecutive ones. Amazon said 3 consecutive, but after pleading my case (having it in the middle), they agreed to replace the laptop. Unfortunately, the replacement one also had a dead pixel, but this time in the top left corner. That was something I can live with.
That been said, I don't know if Toshiba has some quality issues, or it's really, really bad luck!

In a nutshell, you will be getting a lot for the advertised price of $1099. Keep in mind you neither pay shipping nor tax, which makes this computer a steal. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Report abuse ' Permalink Comment Comment

My Toshiba Satellite U405 S2918 media lights stay on after I shut the power off ......

You might be on sleepmode. Make sure you shut it down properly. Removing the AC and battery will definitely turn it off, so as to be sure that you completely turned it off...
Hope this helps
