There are a lot of things that do not work on Vista that do work on XP. For that reason some of my client's have asked me to re-install XP so they would not have to upgrade their hardware and software programs. You could have the same problem.
I Have satellite L40-18W-PSL4CE laptop . I installed XP . i got all drivers except sound driver. the last sound driver was running on vista is (Realtek High Definition Audio System Software Ver:R1.72) on toshiba site they said this driver soppurt vista & xp but i got nothing after installing the driver. pls help me with greatfull.
you have to use a standard windows start up disk with cd rom support like win 98 works well so the computer will recognize a older version then insert it and boot the computer with the operating system that u want to install but be advised if you have a warranty on the machine you will void the waranty i found out the hard way i had xp on my toshiba laptop and i put windows me on it couple of months later i had a cd rom issue and sent it to the manufacture and found out that the waranty was voided because i put a different operating system on the machine
Use window xp bootable cd to format your drive partition and install xp on it..but first take the back up of the partition you are about to format ..
since you have not provided exact model no for eg L45-S2416,its difficult me to give you the exact path for xp drivers,but still use the link below and find your model no and download the drivers Use the link below to download drivers for xp : http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp

did you have the laptop/notebook from new if so then you should have had a set-up disc containing all of the drivers needed to activate items such as modems,sound card,graffics card etc.
this is just a simple problem and can be rectified instantly by inserting set-up disc and loading all avaliable drivers!
if no disc avaliable then log onto the toshiba website and download the up to date drivers needed for your laptop/notebook
Hi, You need a windows XP sound driver for your sound card. If you know your sound card's name go to
www.toshiba.com and look for your country support then Service and Support choose the laptop you have and download the driver for your sound card or if you couldn't find it email the and get the drivers from them.
or go to:
www.google.com and search for "download driver your sound card's name"
and install it.
Or if you don't know the name of your sound card follow the steps below:
Control Panel >> System >> Hardware >> Device Manager
Look for yellow signed "Other Device" >> see if mentions your sound card's name.
if not then you need to see your laptop's manual.
Please come back and leave a good feedback for me to keep me on this site.
