Question about Toshiba Portege M400 Notebook
What drivers do I need to install and run XP Pro, I cirrently have vista basic running?
Computer specs- Intel centrino 2Gh processor, 4G-ram, 180GHDD, OS- Vista Basic
If you go to the Toshiba web site you will find all the XP added drivers for the M400. The main driver you will need to install is the Ri8ad diver so XP can access your internal drive.
if you have a copy of the recovery disk with VISTA on it I would love to get hold of a copy. I want to upgrade to VISTA.

You will need to g to toshiba's website and go to the support or driver download section. It should ask for what model your looking for downloads and drivers for. Just be advised, not all models have XP drivers readily available. If the do they will be labeled for what OS they are for on the download page. You can also use a serch engine and enter a search query like this for example "Dell latitude 1700T winxp drivers download" and some results should popup. I'd read each one carefully to decide what wil work best.
I recently downgraded a customers laptop that was running vista and xp drivers from HP were not available, but after serching the web I found a site were other users had found what hardware was in the laptop and what drivers would work. it was a pretty tough tash bu eventually I got the drivers I needed.

It depends a lot of the rest of your hardware acctually, audio card, video card, etc.
Download everest, that software will tell you what hardwre you exactly have, and then you can look for each driver.
To save time, first install windows xp, and then install everest to discover which drivers are missing, if you are lucky only 1 or 2
