Display Property For Windows XP

I have Toshiba laptop. I have installed Windows XP with service pack three. I went to one of the software website and my laptop got infected with Trojan Horse. I cleaned it and the laptop stated working fine but I lost my desktop wallpaper. In the display control panel I am only getting three tabs now instead of five. ie Themes, Appearance and Setting. I am not getting Screensaver and Desktop tab.

I just cleaned up a similar situation this weekend. Try this. Go into the control panel and create a new user id. Log off of your current user id and use the new one you created. See if the tabs are still there. If they are the virus trashed your desktop and you should create a new one.

Before you do that try scanning for viruses with the new desktop you just created. It might be that the virus exists on your old desktop and it won't go away because it is running. Checking for viruses using the new desktop can get rid of the problem.

While tring to install my UM175 modem, I get a message that say OS not supported. What do I do?


The Verizon UM175 installation supports WinXP, WinVista, and Win7 (and you're certainly running one of these three), so the only possible problem you might be having is that you may be running Windows XP, but you're running a Service Pack level that is no longer supported. Most software packages require WinXP to have at least Service Pack 2 installed, and many installations are now requiring WinXP to have at a minimum Service Pack 3.

To determine what Service Pack you're running:
START > Control Panel > System > General (tab)

Microsoft offers "Service Packs", consisting of (free) packages of updates and bug fixes for its operating systems, which are released riddled with bugs, omissions and security holes.
To install the Windows XP service packs that may be needed to allow the Verizon UM175 modem-related software installation to proceed, visit Microsoft at:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322389

This Microsoft Knowledge Base article mentions Service Packs 1, 1a, 2, and 3, but there is also a 4th.
Windows Vista also has service packs (there are two). If you're running WinVista, the Verizon software may require both. For these Service Packs, visit Microsoft at:

Install windows xp3


I hope you mean SP3(Service Pack 3) on XP. Please follow these steps

Do one of the following:

  • If you downloaded SP3 from the website, to install it immediately, click Open or Run and follow the instructions on your screen. To install the program later, click Save and download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.


  • If you're installing SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and the Software Update Installation Wizard should automatically appear. If this wizard doesn't appear, click Start, double-click My Computer, right-click your CD or DVD drive, and then click AutoPlay.


  1. On the Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.

  2. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

  3. After the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.

  4. If you disabled your antivirus software, enable it again.

for more information check the Microsoft website..

Just now i formatted my laptop and installed windowsXP. For that i need all kinds of drivers to installed and i dont know were to find this.My laptop model is A135-S4527


I bought a Toshiba A135-S4527 with Windows Vista Premium installed on it. I quickly decided to downgrade to XP Pro. It took me days of searching to locate all the drivers since Toshiba does not provide XP drivers for this laptop. Installing all the updates from the Windows Update site did a lot of the drivers for me. HOWEVER, Windows Update will misdiagnose the display adapter. It will try to install a driver for the Intel 945GM but it must be some generic 945GM driver, because it will not give you full functionality (e.g., multiple display outputs, etc). Use the method I describe below to get the correct 945GM driver for this display adapter.

=====================================================
Hardware and drivers needed to run Win XP Pro on Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527
==============================================================
Run "infinst_autol.exe". This is an Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility (now called Intel Chipset Device Software I think). It will identify and load the proper driver files (.inf) for various things. I did this at the end last time, but if done near the beginning, it might take care of things like display adapter, etc. Check Intel's site for the most updated one. Go to http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/inf/

Display adapter is Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset Family
Driver was named win2k_xp14182.exe. I downloaded it initially from
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/deta...1&dwnldid=9683
&agr=n&lang=eng&prdmap=2301

Mouse is Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad
Driver file was called XP_2K.8.3.4.zip. Can be downloaded from the Synaptics website.

Wireless adapter is Atheros AR5006EG
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Ethernet adapter is Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Modem is Toshiba Software modem
Driver can be gotten from Win Vista CD.

During XP installation, drivers were automatically loaded for:
- multimedia card reader
- firewire port (IEEE 1394)
- DVD/CD drive
I have this for Mobile Intel 945GM Express drivers:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Prod...ProductID=2301

Using Atheros AR5xxx 5.3.0.35 for wireless drivers:
http://www.opendrivers.com/downloado...php?href=47456

Realtek High Definition Audio 5.10.0.5436
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOU...ver-R170.shtml

SmartCard 2.0.0.6
Haven't looked

Intel Chipset 8.3.0.1013
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...13499&lang=eng

Realtek RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet NIC
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/54582

I used a program called "driver genius" and it located the driver versions needed for this laptop.

HI I AM USING TOSHIBA L300-1A3 LAPTOP I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE MY OPERATING SOFTWARE TO WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 2, FOR THAT I WOULD LIKE TO GET THE SUPPORTING DRIVERS AND INFORMATION OF WHERE TO DOWNLOAD...


If the laptop was "designed for Vista" or "designed for Windows 7", then it's quite likely that the manufacturer did *NOT* create any device-drivers for Windows XP. Thus, you'll be missing support for your LCD screen, your wired/wireless network adapters, your USB-ports, and so on.

Note that Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP Service Pack 2 as of July 15 this year (2010). So, trying to install an "unsupported" operating-system is *NOT* a good idea.

Stick with the operating system that was shipped with the computer.

Toshiba Satellite A85-107 PC


This could be due to a bad memory chip, or an overheating problem as the fan isn't working properly. First start by removing the service pack three, it has some issues and has been known to cause software conflicts. Service pack two is just fine. Then, if the problem persists, check to see if the fan is working and running in regular intervals, then the memory.

Wireless Network Driver


Dezzie.

This software will work with your Toshiba Laptop. This software was created by Toshiba. You need to install the Network Adapter. So go to Toshiba's website and update your network adapter drivers for win XP SP2.

Please let me know how this works.

Thank you
