Can satellite A100-003 - I install Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit?

Hello everyone,

I have the Satellite A100-003 and I've been running it with Windows XP since I it (triple). Now I want to install Windows 7 on it, however, I'm confused about what can I install on it.

I have a few places on the Toshiba site, I found that I can install Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit), but I can met some problems with the BIOS, in other places, I tried but could not find the drivers for Windows 7 64 bit.

So what is the case? My first goal is to install windows 7 64 bit, because I have 4 GB of RAM on my laptop, but even the 32 bit would be a better choice than XP right now.
So I can install Windows 7 64 bit on my laptop?

Thanks in advance for any answer!



Important before installing another OS, you check the Toshiba driver download page. Satellite A100-003 belongs to the PSAARE series and is therefore not available for Windows 7 drivers. You can only get the drivers for Windows XP and Vista 32 bit.

This means that you can try to install Windows 7 because Vista drivers most also work on Windows 7.
If this isn't the case you find newer drivers yourself, maybe you can find something.

    Can you please tell me if I install Windows 7 64 bit where can I find the drivers, because they are not listed on the Toshiba site.



    Hi Akis,

    > where I can find the drivers, because they are not listed on the Toshiba site.
    That of the point because the drivers provided for this model, you can find on the official website of Toshiba. There's no other place where you can download the pre-tested and official drivers for Toshiba laptops.

    Theoretically, there s no problem to install Windows 7, but you don't have to search the drivers yourself on other sites like:

    An alternative you can try 64 bit Vista drivers. Usually they should work on Windows 7 too.

    If the European driver of Toshiba page doesn t provide the driver 64 bit Vista for this laptop, then you have some many other opportunities to visit some 3rd Web sites and collect only drivers to clean hands.

  • Satellite P300 - how to install Windows 7 64 bit?


    I had a Toshiba Windows 7 upgrade for my P300 which was under Vista 32 bit. During installation, asked me if I wanted to install 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7 and I chose 32-bit. Installation worked fine.

    Now (moths later) I decided that I would like to install the 64-bit version instead. I have an own (custom) settled by booting from the DVD, but it don't did me not option for the moment and all re-installed Windows 7 32 bit. I know that the 64-bit version is on the DVD (there is a folder for it) - how to start from the DVD and have it install the 64 bit version?
    I didn't format the drive when you perform the clean installation - if I do that it will give me the option?

    Thank you

    Great news, mate! :)

    Thank you for this feedback. I'll test it on my Satellite P300 I want to upgrade to Windows 7 too.

    In addition, an upgrade is possible to the same version: This means that Vista 32 bit can only be upgraded to 32-bit Windows 7. On 64 bit it s the same ;)

  • Satellite A100 - how to install "Windows XP MCE" on a new HARD drive?

    I have a laptop Satellite A100-495. the cd/dvd does not work and I have a new hard drive. Now, I want to install the original os (windows xp professional, mce).
    I'm trying to put the files of my original restore on a USB cd but never works and I did not find useful clues in any part of the forum.

    Is there anyone out there who can help me?

    Hi, marawe

    It would never work if you just copy the files from recovery Cd on a usb key. You need to make a BOOTABLE FLASH DISK, to do you need an application like Flashbot... Google.
    Download and install it, after that you can make a bootable usb key.
    You should know that your Bios must support boot with a Usb key, I don't know about your knees. Otherwise, you cannot do so. Hope it works

  • Can satellite U500-10N - I install Windows XP?


    I bought the Satellite U500-10N and it has Vista, but I want to install XP, is it possible?

    My plan is to backup all my files and then put the installation CD of XP, delete all files in Vista and record fresh new copy of XP. And then install all the drivers of nessesery to my laptop to functional normal? Is this possible? :\ I have
    fear that if I install XP some features on my laptop will not work.

    I am in need of help, please if someone knows something I will be grateful


    Theoretically, you can install Windows XP, why not? ;)

    But I put t understand why you want to use such an old operating system. I mean the Satellite U500 is really fast enough for Vista and Windows 7 is present in a few days. You should be happy with your pre-installed Vista version that should work well.

    The point is that Toshiba doesn't offer drivers U500 and XP so you must collect all the drivers yourself on the Internet that takes a lot of time. In addition, I think that some special functions, like the FN keys will not work because it you can get a driver from Toshiba.

    It s your choice what you do but I'd wait for Windows 7 If you don't like Vista Satellite U500 n should also support Windows 7.

  • Can Tecra S10-176 - I install Windows 7 64 bit?

    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum. I just bought a Tecra S10-176 with Vista Business 32 bit and I could upgrade to Windows 7 Professional 32 bit pay 29 euros.

    However, I'm tempted to buy a license for Windows 7 Professional 64 bit OM. Since Toshiba support center (Italy), I have not received any clear indication of the benefits of the Tecra S10-176 with the 64 bit version of Windows 7 Professional. Can someone tell me if it is (or is not) a bad idea to install the 64-bit version on my Tecra S10-176?

    Thank you


    Theoretically, you can install what you want on your laptop. It s yours! ;)
    And I don t understand why you think that Windows 7 64 bit n t be a good idea.

    I checked the Toshiba for Windows 7 64 bit drivers page and it seems that they are all available. This means you get all drivers! :)

  • Can satellite L40-139 - I install Windows XP


    I would like to know if I could remove my laptop Vista and install XP Pro Corporate edition.
    I would have a problem with the drivers and I will be able to load them down.


    The XP installation is possible, but Toshiba XP drivers are not available for this model of laptop.
    L40-139 belongs to the PSL40E series and the European driver page does not provide the XP driver for this series. Only for the PSL4CE and the PSL48E.

    I think you have to collect these XP drivers at your own hand, this means that you must test some drivers in other series of notebook and able to search on some external 3 third-party websites

  • Satellite A100 - 003 PSAARE - Ram upgrade question


    I have a Satellite A100-003 (PSAARE) Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit installed and 2 GB of RAM (1024 + 1024 DDR2 533 MHz).

    I want to improve my system with 2x2gb DDR2 667 MHz Ram.
    When I use 2x2gb Rams, my system recognizes them?
    Or he will recognize less than 4 GB?

    Is there a link between the ram and 32 bit OS?
    What are your suggestions?

    Thank you.

    > When I use 2x2gb Rams, my system recognizes them?
    > Or it will recognize less than 4 GB

    You use the 32-bit Windows System. This means that your Windows operating system can recognize 3.2 GB of RAM max. It's max possible RAM for 32-bit systems.

    But as far as I know that it takes in charge max 2 GB of RAM. Has been mentioned in the page manual user 22 and 33

  • My Fn key does not work on the Satellite A100-003


    I ' v I just A100-003 with Vista, but reinstall W - XP. What driver I have to get a Fn key work properly? Only Fn + F5 (switch to VGA output) works well. I can't adjust brightness disp., sound mute or touchpad switch. Where can I find a driver for Windows XP Home edition solve this problem?

    Satellite A100-003 is a part of the PSAARE series. I visited the page European driver of Toshiba, but I found only the acoustic silence, help them and the driver sound
    Other XP drivers are not available.

    You can try to download and install the tools (Touch Pad on / off Utility, Hotkey Utility)
    etc.) Another A100 series I don't know but maybe it will work if you do not have to give up this feature m

    I have a Satellite A100-003 (PSAARE) Windows 7 Home Premium 32 - bit installed and 3 GB of RAM 667 MHz.
    I want to spend my hard drive. But I don't know which model is most suitable for my computer.

    There are two options: 7200 rpm or 5400 RPM HARD drive.
    What are the advantages and disadvantages of this type of hard drives?

    If I buy a 7200 RPM HARD drive, do I have a problem with the heat and noise?
    If you can give me some names of HARD drive model that you suggest, it will be better for me.

    Thank you.

    > There are two options: 7200 rpm or 5400 RPM HARD drive.
    > What are the advantages and disadvantages of this type of hard drives?
    The 7200 RPM drive is faster than the or 5400 RPM HARD drive. This allows read and write faster data on the HARD drive, but to be honest; in most cases, this difference is not noticeable

    > If I buy a 7200 RPM HARD drive, do I have a problem with the heat and noise?
    No, normally you should not get any problem the two type of HARD drive are compatible with laptops

    > If you can give me some names of HARD drive model that you suggest, it will be better for me.
    To be honest, you can use any HARD SATA 2.5 drive. The SATA controller is not limited to a capacity of HARD drive that you can take any disk of your choice
