Toshiba A135-S4527 downgrade to XP

I have new, in-the-box unit with Vista Home Premium and believe I would better served by either getting it downgraded to XP or just selling it and purchasing a new XP based machine. I read the issues about doing the downgrade and it can apparently turn into a huge headache because of drivers and other compatibility issues. If it were to be downgraded I would likely have it done professionally if I could find a reliable source in the Phoenix, AZ area.

What would be your suggestions?

Regards,

Let's start by not calling it a downgrade, Vista hasn't proven itself to be an upgrade yet.

I have litterally done hundreds of Vista to XP swaps at my shop. Don't be affraid to do an XP reload, manufacturers have realized the mistake of not offering XP drivers for thier hardware and now have them on thier site. Out of the machines I've reloaded with XP, I've only run into a couple of Acers that I had to break down to get the info from a video or sound card. You shouldn't have any problem loading it yourself.

You can download any/all the Windows XP device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page. Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers. Please click on this link: -

Toshiba A135-S4527 will not automatically shut down


If you truly believe the problem happened right after installing the new mouse, then you should start by uninstalling the software for it. Go to Control Panel -> Software -> Uninstall. If this fails, you can use the System Restore utility to rollback the Windows registry to a time before you first installed the new mouse software. Have you tried to unplug the mouse and not use it, atleast on the attempted shutdown process?

I hate it when people say DOWNGRADE, Vista hasn't proven itself to be an upgrade yet. In order to get the proper drivers, you may have to open the machine and get the make and model of the devices you need drivers for. However, in most cases you don't. Try driverguide.com for the drivers. There you can search drivers by the machine model or hardware model.

Vista downgrade


You can try some of these.

The "mass storage" may be fixed after installing the chipset drivers listed.

What I usually do is use an el-cheapo PCMCIA ethernet card - (3-coms tend to work without needing drivers), and download the drivers directly to the laptop.
