Question about Toshiba Satellite 1715XCDS Notebook

1 Answer

Windows NT 4.0 Workstation Drivers?

Dear Folx,

Thank you for my past issue with the Asus Motherboard. I'm sending it
out to be re-RMA-ed, and keep after them till I get a working PC! :)

Anyways, I have a "pre-owned" Toshiba Satellite 1715XCDS Notebook,
that "had" Windows XP, and ran sluggish, then I "wiped" the drive and put
Windows 2000 Professional. It's "less sluggish" than XP, yet I want to know if Windows 2000 Drivers will work on a Windows NT 4.0 Workstation
platform?

Before I get started on a project, I am humbly seeking wise counsel on
what drivers would work on this notebook, or this notebook IS NOT,
part of the Windows NT 4.0 Hardware Abstraction Layer, or the
Compatibility List? Would Windows 98, or 98SE be better?

Any Thoughts? :) Thank You.. :)

(Oh yeah, what about the Battery and Memory Upgrades? Where do I
"exchange" the Battery and find compatible memory for this notebook?)

    Dear ctf1800,

    Looks like its designed for Windows 98SE, ME, and 2000. Oh
    well, I was in a "retro" mood. Thank You! :) If you come across any
    Windows NT 4.0 "friendly" or "compatible" notebooks would you
    let me know? I got this particular notebook at a garage sale for
    80 bucks, O.O.W. with a dead battery, and someone tried to put
    Windows XP on it. Thank You once again! :)

    Dear Folx,

    I did some serious thinking, and you guy's were right. I was the
    dunder head. :-/ :P I had realized the "previous" owner of the
    "previous" owner had Windows XP on top of Windows ME or
    something like it. It was running sluggggggggggish.

    Well, a friend made me a Windows Washer Erase Disk, after
    salvaging the CD-ROM, and getting the Notebook to boot off of
    the floppy, then waiting about 12 hours, (Did the Gutmann clean)
    reinstalled Windows 2000, works better than ever! Got a new
    battery, and told to run the battery cycle. Works a lot better.
    Now, I need memory for this little honeybunn, and I'll be set! :)
    Too bad, I can't play movies or games w/out it choking. Oh
    well. Thank YOU ALL YOU ROCK!! FIXYA!! :)

Graphic problem


This problem is hardware not software. You have a graphics chip failure issue. You have 2 options at this point. Either replace the motherboard or have the graphics chip on the motherboard fixed.

Hi, after windows 7 installation,my asus k50 laptop webcam is working head down,also I can't find my webcam setting.


Dear sir/Madam...
The Laptop come with the motherboard installation disc.Use that disc to install your webcamera automatically.if that disc will not work properly then try to download the right driver for your webcamera . Keep in mind, drivers are vary by the versions of Windows(xp,Vista,7). So you search in google.
