Question about Toshiba Satellite 4090XDVD Notebook
Hi!! I have an old Toshiba Satellite 4090 Xcdt. I'd like upgrade the system, and replace the old 4 Gb (!!) hard disk. I'd also like to install Xp instead the Windows 98. Can I do all that? Thank you so much!!........
Yes, you can upgrade from Win98 to WinXP. The minimum hard drive requirements for WinXP is 1.5GB and the minimum RAM requirement is 64MB. You will also need a CD ROM for the install. Now those are the minimum requirements so don't expect it to go very fast. If possible I would recommend you upgrade to Win2000. WinXP and Win2000 are almost identical. The minimum hard drive for Win2000 is 650MB and for RAM it is 64MB. So you could still use your 4GB hard drive and have plenty of room. You will need a CD ROM for the Win2000 also.
Good luck if you have anymore questons let me know,

I would not recommend you trying to install XP on this machine. The memory maxes out at 192 MB--not near enough to adequately run Windows XP which should have 1GB to run really well. It will function adequately with 512MB. Anything less, the system just drags. Couple this with the fact that you are running at 400 MHz with an Intel Celeron processor and a 66MHz bus speed, you will just be asking for trouble.
