Tricky one, ive you have a external usb cdrom drive , maybe, or if you can take hardrive out and set it up on another laptop install your xp and also place copy of all drivers required onto it, then put back into the toshiba., dont know what else could help you here. hope this helps in some way.
In order to format the laptop, you will need a bootable windows dis. Start the Laptop with the bootable disc and when it asks where do you want to install the windows, select your hard disk and select the option to Format i t from there.
It is possible to remove the domain login and networking setup, but you need to remove programs and cleanup/remove some registry items.
The best way to fix your problem is to wipe the hard disk and install Windows again. The Windows licence label is on the bottom of the laptop, use this product code to install Windows, you can borrow a Windows CD to do the install. Don't forget to download the device drivers from the Toshiba WEB site before you format your hard disk. You need to install your programs again as well.
If this is too hard then the easiest option is to put up with the login problem.
For specific models with different chipset drivers, you can get the sound driver & pretty much everything else on support.toshiba.com. If you can't connect to the Internet, "Tecra, Portege", & sometimes "Qosmio" models came with a built-in HDD recovery, meaning you need to create your recovery disk by running the "Recovery Disk Creator". An application to create your recovery disk. A shortcut is created on the desktop by default, if you cannot find it there, try looking at "C:\Program Files\Toshiba\Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator" & run the "exe" file, it should give you a menu to create one. After creating the disk, you can use that disc to install the drivers for all Toshiba pre-installed devices/softwares on that machine. For Satellite models, the disc should come with the laptop when you boughtt it. When you have the disc, just insert it inside of windows, it will give you options to install the driver & software for a specific toshiba device.
