How to remove Vista Basic from the Toshiba L30 Notebook

Have the Toshiba L30 notebook and came installed with Vista Basic which is taking up tooooooo much memory and making it very slow - about 18-mths old and always been slow. Only got McAfee off it a couple of months ago and replace with AVG but still very very slowwwwwww.

Anyone got any ideas on how to remove Vista Basic (as have Windows XP Prof) and then is installation just a question of putting the disc in to install and run ...

Would appreciate any help or ideas on this.

Many thanks.

Ok heres what I did to remove Vista and Install XP.

Remember when you do this you will loose everything on the computer so back up all you documents, pictures favorites and anything else you want to keep. Remember also that you will be starting with a fresh install and will have to install ALL your programs again. A good idea is to find the XP drivers for your computer before you do this. The Vista drivers WILL NOT WORK

First of all you need to get Vista off of the hard drive. I used partition manager and deleted the partition. Then I formated the hard drive as a Promary drive with an NTFS file system you can use 32 bit file system but NTFS Is more stable, faster and can cope with huge file sizes.

Then you need to boot with a windows XP bootable installation.
Thats it your done, just install xp, wait till it gets done and the fun begins.

My Toshiba L30 101 wont power up!!


Solution is :-
Please flip the notebook upside down , remove the battery , remove the ac adapter , then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds , then put the battery back , ac adapter back . try to power on the notebook it will work (i believe there is some static stuck in the capacitors of the notebook , which is not allowing it to boot.)

If this will not work in that case :-
You need to reseat the hard drive , and the ram of the notebook .
In order to do so you can refer to this website .

If the issue still remains its a hardware issue , check the warranty and send it in for repair.
