I don't have Sound drivers for my Vista Sp2 and I cannot access the Internet, I think my OS also doesn't have network drivers. Please help me with this. I had to downgrade to XP. Please help! Thanks in...


some pc's are os specific, you need to find that out about yours. if that's the case you may have to re-instal vista. If not, you could acquire the drivers through a secondary pc on to a flash drive and load them on your machine.

hen you next have to change your os for whatever reason, first back up the drivers. the only hitch may be that the drivers are os specific.

I am UPGRADING from vista to xp pro. All the drivers did not come with it - where can I find them? Thank you


You can find drivers on the manufacturers websites.
To discover the manufacturer of the device you can use the device manager in Windows.

1) Go to the Start Menu
2) right click on Computer
3) Click on Properties
4) Select Device Manager
5) All the devices you require drivers for will be marked - normally they give enough information for you to work out what the divice is.

Then go to the Manufacturer's website - you can find it through Google and download your drivers... install, reboot and you are good to go.

If this helped you then help me and vote kindly please.

Thank you

Need XP Pro drivers for a toshiba satellite A215-5829 laptop


Some Toshiba laptops are "designed for Vista".
This means that Toshiba will _never_ write and distribute drivers for XP.
Check Toshiba's web-site for "drivers", if any are available.

Cannot connect my MT6225 china phone to my laptop thro the USB. what can i do?


hello, u may have to download the proper drivers plus data manager software from the manufacturers homepage,
they have to fit vista!

if there are just ones for winxp or lower win/versions available, either try connecting phone to a winxp/interent-pc and go through driver-install and so on
or think about downgrading your system to win-xp professional!

win vista is fine but not as reliable as winxp/pro!

good luck

Want to install xp instead of vista - but end up in caldera dr dos


Alot of the reason is because they don't want you to down grade from Vista to XP. But see if this helps. Start your pc, insert XP disk, as soon as the screen comes up press f12 which will allow you to choose the booting sequence, click CD- ROM and the disk should start to be read. understand this tho by downgrading you will have a hard time finding the appropiate drivers for most of your devises since they were meant to be runned by Vista. Here's a tip go find the drivers in europe (be it toshiba.europe, Dell.europe) for they are still running XP. to find the drivers for your particu;ar pc just find the series number and the last unit to run with xp and viola a working xp on a vista pc. Hope this helped

Good Luck =)

Downgrade to XP


Looks like they do not have very many drivers listed for XP on their site, but all of them (obviously) for Vista. I would recommend you not downgrade to XP with that particular laptop. Sorry!

Downgrading vista to xp


Now you need to find a Windows XP install disk that can match the licence number printed on the sticker at the back of the laptop and reinstall XP using your serial key.
You will have to download and install also the XP drivers, you find them on manufacturer website.

See links below on reinstalling XP on a Vista system:

How can i get my sata controller drivers?


This should be aviable on the CD that came with the system, Check your manufactures page to see if they have a downgrade cd aviable since most companies now offer this. In case there is then you can download the drivers from the manufactures web page and put it on a floppy so you can use it .. (win XP will tell you to press F6 to install 3rd party drivers. You may also try www.driverguide.com or you can use certin software like driver magician to find and download them for you..

WIndows Vista to XP Pro


Owners of the OEM editions of Vista Business and Vista Ultimate can downgrade to Windows XP Professional, including Tablet PC Edition and x64 Edition. Only the OEM editions qualify for a downgrade, so if you purchased a new PC with either Business or Ultimate preinstalled, you're in like Flynn.

Those who aren't: All users of Vista Home Basic and Vista Home Premium, and anyone who upgraded to Vista using a retail edition of any of the operating system's SKUs. You are, as they say, SOL.

How do I downgrade? Install a copy of Windows XP Professional with the product key that came with the copy, and then when you hit the activation screen -- which is near the end of the installation process -- select the activate by phone option rather than the online method. You'll likely end up talking with a live rep; tell him that you're downgrading from Vista to XP, and give him the Vista product key. The rep is supposed to walk you through the rest.

Where do I get the XP install disc? Until this summer, Microsoft put the responsibility on the end users' shoulders. For example, in this Vista downgrade rights document (download PDF) targeting resellers, the company said "media is provided by the customer."

A few months ago, however, Microsoft relaxed, and began allowing resellers to provide Windows XP setup CDs to customers buying Vista Business- and Ultimate-equipped PCs. In some cases, discs are shipped with the PCs; in others, users must request them. Don't bother calling Microsoft; it won't provide installation media, and will instead direct you to your reseller.



If the computer maker won't send a Windows XP Pro disc, you're on your own. While perhaps not easy, getting your hands on the install media isn't impossible. Any copy of Windows XP Professional will do -- it doesn't matter if it's already been installed and/or whether the license is in use -- as long as you can find its product key. Install it (see "How do I downgrade?" above) using that key, then activate over the phone with the Vista key.

As a last resort, buy a copy. This isn't a downgrade, not as Microsoft defines it, but it's what most users think of when they use the term.

What can I do if I don't have downgrade rights? Nothing is stopping you from punting to XP other than the money invested in the Vista license already on the PC and what it will cost to replace it. The total may be inconsequential to some, a deal-breaker for others. But there are options.

Because you're paying for the swap, you can switch to any flavor of XP. Windows XP Home, for instance, typically sells online for between $50 and $90 less than Professional. Windows XP Media Center is usually priced between the two.

Once you pick an edition, you can choose from OEM, upgrade and full product versions, which are priced in that order, lowest first. OEM, often called "system builder," omits support and can only be installed on one machine, ever. Windows XP Home OEM is sold online at for around $90. The upgrade version, which runs about $100, can be installed, removed and installed on another PC, but requires proof that you own a legitimate copy of an older operating system. You don't need to install that predecessor, only insert its CD at some point during the XP installation. Eligible versions for an XP upgrade include Windows 98, Windows 98 SE and Windows Millennium.

Finally, there's the most expensive option: the full edition, which sells for around $190. No earlier Windows version is necessary to install this, and like the upgrade, it can be transferred later to another PC.

Of course, the most affordable downgrade is one using the XP installation CD you saved when you upgraded that well-worn machine of yours to Vista earlier this year. You did save it, right? If you didn't get an install disc with that box when you bought it -- and some vendors don't bother, instead slapping restore files in a hidden partition on the hard drive, which has been, of course, copied over by Vista -- you may be able to pry one from the reseller. Dell owners, for instance, can use an online form to request one free copy of the install CD.

I have XP and I'm ready to downgrade. Now what? From here, a downgrade is just like any clean install. You'll need to back up data files, record and/or copy settings and passwords, and make sure you have installation files and/or discs for the applications you'll reinstall in XP. If you've upgraded to software suitable for Vista, it's likely that the newer programs will also run under XP. Copying data and the application installation files you've downloaded from the Web is easiest if you plug in an external drive.


There aren't any downgrade utilities to do the kind of work that upgrade, or migration tools, provide when you're moving up in the world, operating system-wise, so don't bother looking for them. Pity.

Any caveats? Although Vista has been out for less than a year, that's plenty of time for change. If you bought a machine preinstalled with Vista, make sure there are XP drivers for the PC, its components and any new peripherals before you downgrade. Check the computer maker's site. If you find any major holes, reconsider.

I'm lazy but still want to downgrade. What are my options? If you're fed up with Vista, but not so sick of it that you're ready to face a complete mulligan on the operating system, virtualization might be for you. Add virtualization machine software on the Vista-running PC, create a VM, then install XP into the VM. You'll still need a licensed copy of Windows XP to be legit. Fortunately, unlike Vista, XP's EULA doesn't forbid virtualization. (Only Vista Business and Ultimate, the downgrader's friends, can be legally run in a virtual environment.)

You really have three picks here, including Microsoft's own Virtual PC 2007 (free), SWsoft's Parallels Workstation ($50) and VMware Inc.'s VMware Workstation ($189).

The biggest bonus in going virtual is that if you change your mind -- again -- and decide Vista isn't so bad after all, you can just delete the VM and have your old, or new, machine back.
