Vista install I bought Vista Home Edition to install on my Toshiba laptop. Ran the compatibility software and it said everything was fine. When I clicked on install I keep getting a message to run Windows XP and type in the key number. Problem is that Win XP came preinstalled with a backup disk..no key number.

Yes and No. Let me explain. You have taken an older board that worked with XP and tried to make it work in Win7 (which is not supported by the board). Add in your graphics card switch, and you have a real mess.

You can upgrade your motherboard (for one that is compatible with Win7 - (ie. a brand new model with Win7 certification) and use a graphics card that is also Win7 compatible, or

Computer cant read drivers after isntalling new HD


Computer sounds fine, CD sounds dead! Try copying the drivers onto a new CD using another computer & try them in the laptop again. The drivers may be Vista-specific anyway, so try downloading XP drivers from Toshiba website.

Intel desktop board d865gbf model & i am facing sound problem.


Sorry bud it will not accept any new drivers afet installing Vista. WinXP would have allowed you this freedom, now the best option is t change your sound card which is certified as Vista compatible and insert it onto any PCI slot & Vista will recognize it......sodeep

Freeagent tools is not working


With your XP problem..
Goto My Computer and right click.
Select Manage
In the window that opens select Storage and then Disk Management.

Your drives will be there, but need to be mounted. Right clicking on the drive will give you your options etc.


Your Vista problem I will have ot contemplate, though it's probably a software compatability issue more then anything.

Try running the EXE file under XP compatability, or check the website for an updated version. Be sure to get the 64 bit or 32 bit version as required.

Audio Trouble


is it the speakers?
when you reload a operating system, the drivers that come with it should be compatable, but, try installing the drives that came the mobo. they'll be on the disk that came with the mother board, or look them up on the internet.
hope that helps, let me know :)

Video Problems.


well, I suppose it could be the motherboard, though I doubt it. I wonder did you check; the board, processor and graphics card on against the vista HCL (Hardware Compatability List) you should be able to find it on microsofts website. Unfortunately being a 64 bit OS, and considering how new it is, very few devices, software and drivers are actually designed to work on vista yet. I hear alot of complaints about vista not working properly. thruth is vista isn't the problem, other companies didn't keep up. anyway, I hope you can fix it. and honestly I hope it isn't a hardware compatibility issue. Either way Good Luck

I believe you should select the top MICROSOFT XP HOME EDITION line as the newer versions of Windows "instances" are placed on top.
