Hay! my laptop is toshiba satellite A135 s4527 home vista. but i run my laptop with oprating system windows XP2. how it possible. please help me


Hello and welcome to fixya.

In your case, im assuming you refer to the "Vista sticker" that is on the laptop. If a computer is vista-compatible this doesn't mean that it is not able to run older Operating Systems (such as Windows XP SP2) as well.

The sticker on the laptop just referes to the type of Operating System that came pre-installed with it. Now if you bought the laptop and asked your salesman for a DOWNGRADE TO XP Operating System or if this is what he understood then it will probably come with Windows XP instead of Vista Home.

This also applies if you are working for a company in which case the company's IT Department will decide what type of Operating System is to be installed on this computer.

Overall: Newer computers/laptop models that support Windows Vista can also run Windows XP

ALSO: Check for the OEM sticker in the back of the laptop or bottom (it looks like THIS for XP or THIS for windows vista Home Premium). This determines whether you can use a vista DVD to upgrade your computer later from XP to Vista.

If you have any more questions just let me know.


Thanks

I unable to install Xp in my compaq cq61-132tu. The install option just doesn't get highlighted. Also, i don't have another computer.


I assume you are attempting a "downgrade" to Xp from Vista, since this laptop does not come with XP.
From the Compaq information page:
  1. HP does NOT support XP for consumer notebooks, so if you have any difficulties regarding XP, do not expect HP will help you.
  2. HP may demand you to install back VISTA if you have hardware problem to troubleshoot it.
    An option to consider-put your original Vista hdd away and install new one for XP.
  3. Some of the notebook features may not work in XP due to uncertified licenses pointed in this guide.
  4. Microsoft has released three (3) Service Packs for XP, use only SP2 for the first trial. Why? Since many of XP drivers are released based on XP-SP2.
  5. Always make Vista Recovery cd/dvd before downgrade to XP. see it here
  6. You have a folder with drivers & programs that may prove very helpful after XP downgrade.
    Copy folder C:\Swsetup to DVD Before formatting your hdd.
  7. If you have a pre-SP2 XP cd, get the full SP to Integrate with Nlite: SP2 Nlite HERE
The help guide for downgrading is here. There is a lot of information on this process written there.

However, if what you want is a an XP look and feel so you can compute the way you used to, change the Vista to look like XP in the display properties.
If you are trying to run non-Vista software, try running it in compatibility mode. To do this, right click on the program files and select properties and then locate compatibility..

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.

Downgrade Vista Home Basic to Xp SP2


first,you have to know who manufactured those hardware liek for example a vga card, if its nvidia then you should check their site and look for the appropriate driver now if you can't figure out what are their brand, you caninstall them through automatic searching just go to device manager and right click on the icon that needs to be installed then search automatically if still doesn't worked out, open your cpu and check the hardware in that way, you can easily distinguish who manufactured that hardware

There is no way to legally get the product key for Windows XP without buying a copy of Windows XP.

Also, if you have Vista Home Premium or Basic, you will have to do a fresh install of XP, only Vista Business and Ultimate allow for downgrading.

Here is an article about downgrading to XP from Vista:
