Xp Support I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellie A305-S6837 and it was shipped with Vista but I downgraded it to XP because of some software compatability issues. Most of the downgrade went well but I was unable to locate a driver for the ethernet controller and base device. Would appreciate if you could send me the location of these drivers. Thank much

You can try this

Downgrading on a system that didn't ever ship with XP is problematic at best

This is the chipset, should take care of the base device

Use the Windows Install disc and load on top of previous version. Do not do a clean install, this will delete all previous settings and data.

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.

Downgrade to Windows XP.


Due to the fact of the many people that wish to downgrade to Windows XP, many computer distribution companies keep current driver software that is compatible with the various Windows OSes. I checked the Toshiba website for drivers for the Satallite A205-S5809 and they have drivers for WIndows XP, XP SP2/SP3, Vista 32-bit, and Vista 64-bit. They have all the drivers you should need to make the changeover. I hope this helps.

Toshiba A135-S4527 downgrade to XP


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.
