Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook

2 Answers

Toshiba a135-s4527 I bought this thing w/ vista home premium. After so many problems, I descided to install XP into it. I put all of my personal items on an external, then installed XP. Great!........ other than now most of my drivers are not working. I have looked multiple places for the dvd driver, but it is driving me crazy. I have even purchased a program that scans and lets you know what drivers are bad. It actually installed one for the dvd drive, but not the right one. And I get nothing when trying to do the other drivers that are not working.HELP! I'm thinking about trading this thing in for a Tandy 2000. :)

If you are talking about the software that lets you watch a DVD you will not get that as part of XP. You must purchase a DVD player program. It is not the driver that lets you do that.

If the system lets you see the DVD drive at all the driver is correct.

you should not need a DVD driver to make the DVD work. DVD Drives are standard. Windows knows what it is, trust me. go to your control panel, click on system. choose the hardware tab at the top. then click on device manager. look for DVD/CD-ROM drives. It should be in there.

basicly in windows xp, you should just install a DVD Player Program to get it to work. like Power DVD or Windows Media Player 10. Make sure you go to windows updates and do all of your updates. sometimes newer hardware wont work unless you are using windows xp service pack 2. also if you choose custom install at windows updates, you will see drivers for windows xp. Not all the time will it know, so dont count on Microsoft too darn much. :D

Just now i formatted my laptop and installed windowsXP. For that i need all kinds of drivers to installed and i dont know were to find this.My laptop model is A135-S4527

I bought a Toshiba A135-S4527 with Windows Vista Premium installed on it. I quickly decided to downgrade to XP Pro. It took me days of searching to locate all the drivers since Toshiba does not provide XP drivers for this laptop. Installing all the updates from the Windows Update site did a lot of the drivers for me. HOWEVER, Windows Update will misdiagnose the display adapter. It will try to install a driver for the Intel 945GM but it must be some generic 945GM driver, because it will not give you full functionality (e.g., multiple display outputs, etc). Use the method I describe below to get the correct 945GM driver for this display adapter.

Hardware and drivers needed to run Win XP Pro on Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527
Run "infinst_autol.exe". This is an Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility (now called Intel Chipset Device Software I think). It will identify and load the proper driver files (.inf) for various things. I did this at the end last time, but if done near the beginning, it might take care of things like display adapter, etc. Check Intel's site for the most updated one. Go to

Display adapter is Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset Family
Driver was named win2k_xp14182.exe. I downloaded it initially from

Mouse is Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad
Driver file was called Can be downloaded from the Synaptics website.

Wireless adapter is Atheros AR5006EG
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Ethernet adapter is Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Modem is Toshiba Software modem
Driver can be gotten from Win Vista CD.

During XP installation, drivers were automatically loaded for:
- multimedia card reader
- firewire port (IEEE 1394)
- DVD/CD drive
I have this for Mobile Intel 945GM Express drivers:

Using Atheros AR5xxx for wireless drivers:

Realtek High Definition Audio

Haven't looked

Intel Chipset

Realtek RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet NIC

I used a program called "driver genius" and it located the driver versions needed for this laptop.

If you have a Toshiba Recovery CD you may be able to install XP, otherwise :-
You need a Windows XP installation CD together with the installation Product code.
To install Windows XP insert the CD in the laptop and boot up with the CD and follow the screen instructions.

You can download any/all the Windows XP device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page.
Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers.

According to the specs this is the driver (Toshiba Software Modem) you need to install to enable your modem.

Toshiba A135-S4527 will not automatically shut down

If you truly believe the problem happened right after installing the new mouse, then you should start by uninstalling the software for it. Go to Control Panel -> Software -> Uninstall. If this fails, you can use the System Restore utility to rollback the Windows registry to a time before you first installed the new mouse software. Have you tried to unplug the mouse and not use it, atleast on the attempted shutdown process?

Invalid product key Windows Vista Home Premium with Toshiba

this could be because someone took the license key that was origionally installed on your computer, did you lent it out? The same product key can not be activated on 2 computers unless it has multiple licenses. I had this problem, but i simply called microsoft and they shut down the other product key and gave me a new one for free.

Vista downgrade

You can try some of these.

The "mass storage" may be fixed after installing the chipset drivers listed.

What I usually do is use an el-cheapo PCMCIA ethernet card - (3-coms tend to work without needing drivers), and download the drivers directly to the laptop.
