Hay! my laptop is toshiba satellite A135 s4527 home vista. but i run my laptop with oprating system windows XP2. how it possible. please help me


Hello and welcome to fixya.

In your case, im assuming you refer to the "Vista sticker" that is on the laptop. If a computer is vista-compatible this doesn't mean that it is not able to run older Operating Systems (such as Windows XP SP2) as well.

The sticker on the laptop just referes to the type of Operating System that came pre-installed with it. Now if you bought the laptop and asked your salesman for a DOWNGRADE TO XP Operating System or if this is what he understood then it will probably come with Windows XP instead of Vista Home.

This also applies if you are working for a company in which case the company's IT Department will decide what type of Operating System is to be installed on this computer.

Overall: Newer computers/laptop models that support Windows Vista can also run Windows XP

ALSO: Check for the OEM sticker in the back of the laptop or bottom (it looks like THIS for XP or THIS for windows vista Home Premium). This determines whether you can use a vista DVD to upgrade your computer later from XP to Vista.

If you have any more questions just let me know.


Thanks

Webcam driver


unfortantly because you have downgraded from the most advaned microsoft program there is, you dont have all the fetures that vista has.
in order to get the features back, you need to reinstall vista again.

Sound and modem driver


Hey I hope this help you out and hope it works. Ok I did the samething because I did not like that vista program, I had the exact same problem, Ok make sure what drivers your computer uses, and just double check, Ok go into your device manager look down the list there should be yellow ? marks by the drivers that are not working. Roll down to what ones are yellow right click and update drivers see if that works frist. If that does not work find all the info at the toshiba website for your model and frist download the board drivers, then.Nic drivers, then do sound and audio drivers, That should work for you if It does not work Please Let me know and I will find the drivers you need with a little more info I can figure out what you need and we can get you back up and running or hearing LOL bear001 Thank you
