You will have several problems to install Windows XP in a computer designed to use Vista. I personally don´t think it´s fair.
But your problem possibly is not related with the OS. Are you using a wireless router? If yes, the problem may be your 4720´s wireless adapter (probably internal). You can test it by using another wireless network (most malls, shopping centers, airport or hotels have avaiable public wireless internet access).

Toshiba config free software is blocking the internet connection from coming through. what should i do?


XP - Start -> control panel - add/remove programs and uninstall it.

Vista - Start -> control panel -> program features and uninstall it.

Let windows manage your wireless and wired networks. I promise it is much easier.

You will have to look at the camera's owners manual and see if it is compatible with windows xp. If it is you may need to go to the cameras website and down load the correct drivers. Usually such devices are plug and play with windows. Since this one did not work right it sound like a incompatibility with e software between vista and xp.You should find all the information you need either in the owners manual or on the website. If not use the website customer support and either e-mail or call them to get further technical assistance with your problem.I hope this help you with your problem.

Hi, I have a toshiba sattelite a55-s106 laptop that I recently upgraded from xp to vista home prem. After that I decide to add more ram. The system is supposed to be able to handle 2gb of ram max. If I...


Vista will not be the culprit here. The beep most likely meens that thee is a problem with the memory stick itself, especially if it boots normally when you take it out again. Motherboards are mostly designed to take identical sticks of RAM in pairs (Same brand, same model, same amount of memory) and sometimes, you will find that different manufacturer's RAM will not work in some systems.

Check to see if the RAM stick you are putting in is the same brand/model as the one already in. Also check to make sure it has the same amount of RAM on it. It could also be defective.

I hope that helps

Have you activated SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, and TLS 1.0 in Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Security? If they are not activated, there is the real possibility you won't connect. Happened to me just tonight and discovered them all unchecked. Reactivated all 3 and voila.... it worked!
