Windows xp wont work on 3480ct

the 3480ct has 12 gb of storage. It may not be enough for xp to work efficiently. Other specs. may not allow xp to work on this model computer. Try Windows 98 or Windows 95 which have less stringent requirements, if it's worth going this route.

Hello! I got a problem with my modem on Portege 2000

Well as a work around, you could buy & use a USB Modem. You simply must find, the exact modem driver, or what you have happening, will happen. Are you sure you are looking for the correct driver. Get a program called Everest, this will tell you exactly what it is, also, sometimes you need an Installer, not just the driver..go to MODEM manufacturers website to get the driver, the PC manufacturer, often has many different ones used.

I have Toshiba Portege 3110ct w/WIN 2000 installed. Have forgotten admin password- I added a wireless card and tried to set up a home network when I locked myself out inadvertently

Are you able to get in in Safe mode (F8 on boot) , maybe try Administrator with no password. Then you could reset your admin password.

How to install win xp in toshiba portage r200 laptop

This is resolved by installing Intel Storage Manager drivers through "F6" option on XP Setup. YOU MUST HAVE AN EXTERNAL FLOPPY DISK (A Drive) the Portege doesn't come with one...and XP does not support USB or CD ROM for this particular function.

Toshiba Portege 7100 SlimLine Notebook

they should be the same the close number just means that they revised something... most laptops have builtin wi fi but if it doesnt just buy a cheapie usb or pc slot card! I would NOT reccomend that you install windows vista on your pc.....there are still yet too many problems with them and you will have A VERY hard time getting drivers that are compatible

as far as the rest of the specs... ask the seller! they should know or see if it says on the ebay auction page
