Question about Toshiba Satellite U405-S2820 Notebook
Tried downgrading to XP, and as others have noted, the process was
cumbersome. I eventually found the correct drivers using the Satellite
Pro model (U400-S1001X). Unfortunately, I was never able to install the
WiFi since the Intel Chipset drivers kept on crashing XP (BSOD). Had the
chipset drivers been installed correctly, I would've been able to
install the drivers for WiFi.
The computer had a dead pixel right in the middle of the LCD screen. I contacted Toshiba, and they said they can't do anything since there needs to be at least 9 consecutive ones. Amazon said 3 consecutive, but after pleading my case (having it in the middle), they agreed to replace the laptop. Unfortunately, the replacement one also had a dead pixel, but this time in the top left corner. That was something I can live with.
That been said, I don't know if Toshiba has some quality issues, or it's really, really bad luck!
In a nutshell, you will be getting a lot for the advertised price of $1099. Keep in mind you neither pay shipping nor tax, which makes this computer a steal. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Report abuse ' Permalink Comment Comment
