    Hi!



    M8! dont even try to upgrade it to XP, with those spec you have you will regret is even if you manage to install the OS. Bellive me, stay with that Win98 or buy a new laptop

    what's missing from those specs is the speed of the cpu.... is it a pentium II or III or even a pentium 4. what i would also suggest is to go to the toshiba website.... click on support and locate the drivers for your computer.... see if they list drivers for win xp.

10gb of RAM is not enough for Windows XP. You need to upgrade your HDD to about atleast 40 GB HDD Minimal... I'd recommend a new PC if you can get that to work out, but I understand the tuff economical times.. If you need any mroe help ..throw me an email at joey@joeysitservices.com I'll give you some bootable tools that may help!

I installed windows xp on my toshiba tecra m4. How stylus pen works?


Toshiba Tecra M4-S435 is Tablet PC. Windows XP (Profession) has no option of touch screen.
In order to use the feature, you need to install Windows XP Tablet PC Edition or you may install Windows 7, which supports this feature and you would definately be able to use stylus and touch screen, as I have installed Windows 7 and its working fine with all the drivers etc.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

WHAT KIND OF FLASH DRIVE CAN I SE WITH TOSHIBA


This is an older model which according to the manual shipped with windows 98. The USB is 1.1 and you will have to find an older flash drive and driver software to have a chance. I don’t think it is worth the trouble. Sorry

Toshiba 1625CDT CD-ROM


How old is the cd-rom? Dust, and years of use can cause the laser to wear out or misalign.Try blowing hard inside with the drawer open (silly, isn't it? but I am not joking. my place is dust prone and I have to do that all the time). But if it is as old as the operating system, maybe it is time to get a new drive.

We have a toshiba Sattelite A45-140. Hard drive problem


It is not that hard to remove the drive, though, if you are prone to have leftover screws when you take devices apart, you should get help. And before you part with your cash, make sure that the hard disks available are compatble with your laptop, since I have difficulties finding non SATA (IDE) disks for my old 5005.
