    Have you gone to Display Properties and in Settings set the resolution to the size you want? (Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen. Go to the bottom of the list, and Left-click on Properties. Now Left-click on the Settings tab. Slide the Screen Resolution slider to the right to increase. Left-click on Apply, then Left-click on OK)

It's a driver problem, Check here, click on refine search by: Operative system, check Windows XP, then on the other option click on Display, you'll see 3 options for download, download and install all 3 of them, maybe you'll need to reboot, then you can change you resolution to fit your needs.

I have a Toshiba A45-S121 laptop. I upgraded my hard drive from a 40GB hard drive to a 320GB Western Digital. Loaded Windows XP and formated drive in FPTS format. The computer rebooted to the hard drive...


Best possible solution put back your 40GB and try to get an external casing for your 320GB to see if it works.And try windows on NTFS instead of FPTS, so reformat your 320GB and install the Windows XP again.
I hope this solution is helpful.

I want to restore my a25-3072 laptop back to factory specs.


ok first things first I believe you mean "XP tablet edition" instead of "Desktop Management Interface"
  • A Tablet edition just means laptop version of and operating system. Laptops need different operating systems, than desktops, to function correctly.
Second even if you are using a Tablet edition of XP you can't use it from another computer.
  • When ever you use a restore disk specifically designed for another computer you will get the error message you described.
  • You will need to find the original restore disk for that laptop, or you will need to find a new Tablet version of Windows XP.
Once you install a new version you should stop getting that error message. But it has to be brand new. Please rate me I want to know if I was of any help.

Windows does not see full size of new Hard drive


Is your disk correctly partitioned?

  1. Right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Click Disk Management.
Find your newly installed disk and see if there is any unpartitioned space on it. If there is, just create a new partition, or delete the previous one so you can create the partition which will consume full size of the disk.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
