Windows XP Drivers

I purchased a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5915 laptop from Wal-Mart which came with Windows Vista basic. I have Windows XP Professional and was wanting to "downgrade" to it. Only problem is I am unsure if there are Windows Vista drivers for my laptop.

I have looked for this particular model on Toshiba's website, and to my suprise it is not listed :(

Any ideas??

Toshiba satellite L305-S5915 SM BUS CONTROLLER

Always get your drivers and specific software from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop. They are usually free of charge.

If you were to log on to the web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

Converting thevista home basic into windows xp professional

The Home Basic licence does not cover you legally to do this. You need a retail version of XP, not an OEM version. If you have an OEM version of XP (e.g. Dell XP recovery CD) it will not activate on the Tosh and MS will refuse to give you an activation code becuase it is illegal. If you do manage to install XP and activate it, you will of course need drivers. Check the Tosh website for XP drivers. If they don't have any for your model then you may have trouble finding the correct ones.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
