Re: VGA Adapter

Most new laptops shipped with Vista use drivers that use the new WDDM instruction set for Aero. XP has one less D, WDM. This usually means that generic drivers MAY be the only way to get it to work. There are too many packages of the Satellite A135, if you gave me which one I can point you to the correct chipset.

Regardless of the OS the laptop was shipped with, you can usually find drivers for any OS based on the video chipset used. For example the A135-S4827 includes an Intel GMA950 video chipset. googling your model + video chipset will almost always get you a driver.

Lan and wireless driver for toshiba a135-s2246

Unfortunately, the Toshiba Satelite A135-S2246 was never designed to run XP, only Vista. Which is why you can't find any drivers for XP. The nearest you can get is to find a laptop running XP SP2 that is using the same LAN (ethernet controller) and WLAN (wireless ethernet controller), and see if they will work.

Here are the drivers I found for XP (please check which one's you are trying to install):

Atheros WiFi card driver:

Intel WiFi card driver:
You will need to search for the card that you have.

LAN (ethernet controller):
You can pick third or fourth from top depending on your preference.

Please remember that Toshiba, Microsoft, Atheros, Realtek, Intel and especially myself accept no responsibilty for what may, or may not happen when installing drivers not specifically designed for your system. All that said, I hope it works for you.

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4447 wireless adapter not useable in windows XP

Well of course I do have to tell ya that downgrading from the original operating system which is Vista OS on your computer will cause alot of issues, Usually you will need to go to each and every manufactors website for each product and locate the driver yourself because every Computer Manufactor company will tell you that you should keep the windows operating system that came with the computer or they will not provide you any drivers, and they mean it, I tried downgrading from Vista OS to XP and had no drivers ... I would try going to the Wi-Fi adapter/card manufactors website and try to locate a driver. That is your bests bet Toshiba is not going to help any...especially if warrant is out of date...Let me know how it goes!
