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

I have the acer5715/5315 series abd it crashed. I had it fixed and the guy put windows 7 so now none of my acer programs work. How can I get these to work with windows 7


Operating System Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Starter

1. Before upgrading to windows 7, you must check the specification of your acer aspire 5315.

2. Windows 7 is better than windows vista but if you are really wanted those acer programs to work. You have to downgrade your operating system from your previous operating system.

Still unable to locate the sound drivers for my vista system


When it comes to drivers, Windows Vista is still pretty new. Depending on your system, you may have minimal functionality. That's a big part of the reason my company never moved over to Vista...our next step will be Linux... Also, a lot of laptops come with proprietary versions of the operating system (be it Windows XP or Vista). Basically, that means the manufacturer "tweaked" the operating system to work the way it needs to with the machine. Sometimes, upgrading the operating system on a laptop can do more harm than help. Other times, it works just fine.

I think that you should read Panasonic's Web site. The best information should come from the manufacturer. I do know that you have a CF-51 but I don't know exactly which one so it's best you navigate through the site and select your exact model. You will find that Panasonic does not recommend operating Vista on these PCs. They also do not guarantee the operation of Windows Vista on Panasonic brand computer nor is Vista intended as user support for operating system compatibility (their exact words).

They do have some drivers available that will help fix certain issues that they have found while evaluating Vista on different Panasonic brand machines. If you search this site correctly you will find a wealth of information. It may turn out that you find what you need to get Vista working or, you may find that Vista is not the best operating system for your machine. Whatever the case, make sure you do what's best for the laptop ;)

Follow this link to find more support information and drivers for users running Vista on Panasonic brand machines http://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/cgi-bin/itn/toughbook/dl01.cgi.

When you come to the Download Center page, you will need to choose a category (choose Driver). Next, Select your model in the list (you will see there are a lot of different CF-51 models).
Choose your operating system (here, your only option is Windows Vista Upgrade and I'll tell you why shortly).
Choose language then click Search.

The only option for Vista is upgrade...they are providing this information/software for users prior to upgrading from XP to Vista. In cases like these (when the operating system is fairly new) it's best to do your homework first. You may find that there were some fine tuning adjustments that should have been made prior to installing Vista. Your best bet may even be to roll back to XP, install any recommended software/Hot Fixes before upgrading the install Vista.

Just wanted to give you a few thoughts to start rolling around and working with. Make sure you check that Web site and be sure to click the links in the box labeled File Description. There you will find a detailed explanation of how they expect Vista to work on these PCs and what the software will fix.

Hope this helps!

Upgrade vista home premium


As per my knowledge, there is no version of Vista called Vista Professional like in Windows XP.
Make sure what is the version to which you want to upgrade to from Vista Home Premium to Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.
The available versions of Vista Operating Systems along with the features supported from the Link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/compare-editions/default.aspx

However, if you want to Upgrade the current version of Vista to a higher version like Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, you need to purchase Vista Anytime Upgrade kit from any retail store or directly from Microsoft.
You can find the required information related to Anytime Upgrade Kit from the link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

However, make sure that you had created the Recovery Disks for your notebook using which you will be able to reinstall the preinstalled Operating Sytem along with all the Preinstalled Applications and Drivers after which you need to use the Vista Upgrade Kit to upgrade to higher version of Vista.
However, if you are currently having a 32 Bit Vista preinstalled in the Notebook, it is not possible to upgrade to a 64 Bit Vista since you can upgrade only a 32 Bit of Operating System to a higher version of 32 Bit Operating System and a 64 Bit Operating System to a higher version of 64 Bit Operating System.
Hope this helps....

Problem about Win XP and Vista


If you install Vista on your machine be sure to back up all of the important files you have on your computer BEFORE you do the upgrade. You will most likely lose all of your files when you upgrade as it will be an operating system switch. As far as Vista goes it is, in my opinion, a better operating system than XP. The only downside is it takes a little bit more power to run it. I would not recommend upgrading unless you have at least 1 gig of RAM and a decent processor. (In order to check this simply right click on your My Computer icon and click "Properties" and you can see what you have there). If you have at least 1 gig of RAM and a decent processor then by all means upgrade!
