Did you format and reinstall Windows XP from a clean install? You will need to do that and then pull an XP driver. Chances are if Toshiba designed your system with a factory OS of Vista they didnt put the XP driver for your system on their support pages. YOu will need to pull the specifications for your exact model and see the manufacturer of your sound device/card. Then go to the manufacturers website to obtain the drivers for XP.
if ur WIN XP is Service Pack 3 then u will not have much problems in installing drivers it will come pre loaded but if not there is a solution , u can first make a list of component manufacturers like Board is from intel u will get the drivers any ways from Intel no prob
Sound = ? VGA= ? is it intel or ATI or NVIDIA u will get it fromthe wesite dont worry just right down the model of ur vga Modem = ? LAN= WIFI = normally intel dont worry u will get it from intel
if ur win xp doesnt come up with pre loaded drivers just install it and then download drivers from the brand names website
let me know if i can help
one more thing if u are going back from VISTA to XP u will find it sometimes difficult if u dont have WIN XP loaded with SP3 cd so if it does not recognize ur hard drive during inst and says that no drives found dont worry just check out the solution on this link below
looks like toshiba is more concerned on profit than in customer assistance, onece you bought a laptop - you are on your own. in two weeks time me and my friend we didnt find working drivers for what is mentioned. all the drivers toshiba is offering is for vista based os only, and some for win xp 32bit. for users like me, they only offer to use vista, pretending it is the best OS. i was working with my laptop even without those drives and noticed it working atleast twice as fast on xp than with vista. win xp was using approximately 270 ram memory to compare with 760 vista's when doing nothing. i am really sorry i bought a toshiba laptop! and now i am over 5.000 miles away! i hope they release drivers or die with no profit. sorry folks- solution is to reinstal vista :(
I am only going to say this once........vista is the best ........ believe me alot of people are afraid of vista ... I cannot understand why may I ask you SIR why are you changing from Vista to XP when they are both the same OS .......it is senceless ........exeriment man oh man experiment you will succomb.................
I hate it when people say DOWNGRADE, Vista hasn't proven itself to be an upgrade yet. In order to get the proper drivers, you may have to open the machine and get the make and model of the devices you need drivers for. However, in most cases you don't. Try driverguide.com for the drivers. There you can search drivers by the machine model or hardware model.
You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
