    I got a toshiba laptop A satellite model. It came with vista. When i first got it i liked vista and the cool look of aero. But then i got tired of the loading time and the excess use of RAM. I then installed Windows Pro XP SP2. I noticed a difference right away. My Pc was alot faster and booting time and loading times were incredible! But to my amazement Toshiba doesn't have a drivers for XP. They only have drives made for vista. I was going crazy looking for some. I finally found one for video and audio. But i couldnt find any for the Wireless LAN and a modem. I couldnt get on the internet!!! I called toshiba all they told me was that the laptop i got was only made to run with vista (he was saying something about BIOS). I was furious. If you guys have had this problem and found some drivers for Toshiba Satellite model A135-S4666 please show me a link.


    I eventually went back to vista. To get back on the net but i still would love to have XP on my laptop.

    Thanks

    download and run SIW. now you'll have all information you need to download XP drivers from 3rd party manufacturers' support pages.

    rubbish, i haven't seen a computer as of yet that couldn't run XP because it was "made to run with Vista" :)
