Hi Rob, unfortunatly there is no legal way to load Windows XP without your own disk. Microsoft only allow this to be loaded on one computer per disk and you can not use a friends disk as each computer has its own electronic signature. this is recorded when XP is activated and the disk key is recorded with that signature so it can not be used on more than the one computer.

Magnet near laptop issue

Your laptop is ancient, it is no way powerfull enough to run vista.
If the magnet was powerful it may have damaged the hard drive and other components.
I would not run anything later than windows 2000 on a 266mhz CPU.
You could try XP at a push.
Your drivers are available here.

Can not find any place or panelon a toshiba satellite pro xcdt

Hi, are you sure you want to do this , replacing the processor is only feasable if its a plugin one and being that this is a pentium2 266mhz processor with edo ram and a very small hard drive , you may well be cheaper ,easier and better off buying a secondhand laptop from ebay or the like .

hope this helps

I dont know where the model number on my computer is

I have to assume the sound is derived from the mother board. We'll need the Manufacturer of the motherboard (not the chips) i.e. Intel, Assus etc. and the model # which should be printed very close to the manufacturers name.

Uppgrade to a faster processor?

Pentuim D is a processor that has 2 x cpu in one and a core 2 duo has 2 cpu's plus 1 smart core bigger cache 
you can only upgrade to a E2140 or E2180 processor on that motherboard 
OR replace the board with a newer type

If you want to work the actual speed for the processor of a dual core take the speed for example dual core 1.8 x 2.1 =3.78 GHz 
Core 2 Duo  1.8 x 2.4 = 4.32 GHz

Uppgrade of processor!

looks like that mobo can only suppoport up to 53 mhz front side bus for a celeron d processor
wht tht means is tht u can get any cpu tht has the front side bus up to 533mhz with the 775 socket forur motherboard

and forpentium 4 its 800mhz and agian any cpu with up to 800 mhz front side bus and 775

so ur best cpu for tht mobo would be the SL7RR it supports hyperthreading

here a direct link to intel'ssite

3.40 GHz
800 MHz
109.6 W

Hooking up keyboard and mouse

... Well, first things first, are your keyboard and mouse USB or PS/2? Chances are if it's a really old computer it doesn't have any USB ports. You would then need either 2 USB to PS/2 adapter (typically small green and purple adapters) or PS/2 keyboard and mouse.

Hope this helps!
