Toshiba Portege M400 to Vista

Hi

I have a Toshiba Portege M400 (PPM41E-00J01CHK), with 2GB RAM, and an Intel centrino 2.0Ghz dual core processor. Toshiba say that my laptop is Windows Vista capable, and I am interested in upgrading from the XP tablet edition pre-installed on it to Windows Vista Ultimate. The problem I am having is that I do not know where to get official Vista specific drivers for this laptop from. I presume that Toshiba will have some drivers otherwise they wouldn't have put a sticker on my laptop saying 'Windows Vista Capable'. I am in the UK by the way. Please help me out,

Te toshiba europe site is best. They have all the drivers that are avaiable for free - If you are doing a manual install you will need to install them in order. The main thing is to ensure that the Raid driver is instaled else WISTA will not see your drive. There is an issue with the Power managing drivers I am informed. I sucessfully instaled VISTA without the Recovery disk. But I think having the recovery disk partition would e a distinct advantage.

Here's a link for Toshiba's UK site. I looked around a bit and they don't seem to offer much in the way of drivers. You might try driverguide.com I've found it to be a good place to find those hard to find drivers, plus it's easier to use than most manufacturer's sites.

Assuming the CPU you have is an E5300 2.6 duo 45nm then use an LGA 775 mobo.

For Win XP / Vista run at LEAST 2gb (Preferably 4GB) Ensure the mobo specs are compatible with the type of ram also.

It depends a lot of the rest of your hardware acctually, audio card, video card, etc.
Download everest, that software will tell you what hardwre you exactly have, and then you can look for each driver.
To save time, first install windows xp, and then install everest to discover which drivers are missing, if you are lucky only 1 or 2

IBM ThinkPad R40 Intel Centrino Upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo?


According to system specs your system is not compatible with the Core 2 Duo or Centrino Core 2 Duo. To upgrade to those chips you would need to replace the motherboard with one capable of running those chips. If you decided to do that you would almost surely need new RAM as newer boards use newer technology. By the time you did this the upgrade would not be cost effective. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Add internal bluetooth to a Toshiba portege M400


The review below says bluetooth is built in, please confirm the exact model number.

The Toshiba M400 is the first convertible tablet notebook we've seen to sport a Core Duo processor. And the 1.83GHz Core Duo CPU at the heart of it, backed by 512MB of RAM, powered it to a benchmark score of 0.90. The other specifications are respectable. The Western Digital hard disk has a capacity of 80GB, while the optical drive is a Matsushita model that will write to all formats of disc, including, usefully, DVD-RAM. Elsewhere, Intel's 3945 802.11a/b/g wireless card rounds off the Centrino specification, and Bluetooth is another plus.
