XP compatible drivers for my laptop

Hi

My laptop originally came bundled with Vista Basic. I am planning to "down-grade" this to XP, since I am not too happy with the speed of vista, even with 1.5 gigs of RAM in it!!!
I could not find appropriate XP drivers for the hardware anywhere in the internet... and i found forums where they say that the drivers CD that come along with laptop have only vista drivers in it... and i am afraid to format the drive and end up with no way out...
please help me in finding the place where i can download the XP compatible drivers for this specific model of Toshiba.

I down graded from vista to xp cant install drivers


Hello,

As for your problem Toshiba is not did not bother creating a Windows XP compatible drivers for the Model L500-018 as it is their high end Notebook for the year 2007 and discontinued it on 2009. what you can is to upgrade from Windows Vista Home to Vista Premium for more functionality and XP compatibility or upgrade to much better Windows 7 as the Vista drivers are accepted by windows 7 OS.

Hope this helps.

Downgrading from Vista Basic to XP


Hi

Have you tried the "compatability" mode built into Vista. Also go to Microsfts site and search for answers as they now have better number of "fixes" to issues similar to yours.

Hi, I want to down grade my Acer Aspire 4315 to win XP. Will I find all the driver for it or not. Must I leave it with Vista? Please tell me. Will it be faster with Win XP?


Are you downgrading from Vista to XP? Chances are, if you have Vista and want to roll back to XP, you should be able to find the necessary drivers. You can go to Microsoft's website to check compatibility with your drivers.

SOUND DRIVERS FOR COMPAQ PRESARIO C790EI ON WINDOWS XP


It is not always advisable to downgrade from Vista to XP, especially on a laptop. The reason being that most of the installed components on the laptop, are specifically chosen for their compatibility with Vista.
However, you can try the following driver, which is more or less a universal basic driver that should work with your machine.
http://www.soft82.com/download/Windows/Vinyl_AC97_Codec_Combo_Driver

Should that not work, you will have to find the make and model of your sound card and do a Google search for the drivers..

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answerI provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa!rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!
