  • Re: Satellite A205-S5859 - where to find Windows XP drivers

    I recently got new toshiba Satellite A205-S5859 computer laptop (PSAE3U-076023), with Vista Home Premium.
    I want to downgrade to Windows XP, but I'm not sure if Toshiba have all the XP drivers for this model.
    I checked the site of toshiba for the drivers, I'm not sure that I have all the drivers.

    There are two Web sites:

    [Satellite A205-S5859 |] ModelDLOS = Windows + XP 7% C 132594 & ModelDLCat = null & List Type model = & ct = DL & me = 1998597 & rpn = PSAE3U & OrderBy = D & PublicStartIndex = 0 & PrivateStartIndex = 0 & PublicCutO ff = & PrivateCutOff = & AddOldPublicItems = false & AddOldP rivateItems = undefined & all_docs = false & x = 15 & y = 11]


    I'm afraid downgrade to XP and then found right drivers for my laptop.

    No help from the Pro. Guy?


    Satellite A205-S5859 seems to be a series Toshiba us and that's why you should use the Toshiba driver page for XP driver download.

    The first link is to the page of the Toshiba driver us.

  • Installing WXP on Satellite L30 - 10Y

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite L30 - 10Y (PSL33E 03L031EN) (about 2 years), it is running Vista (installed come) and I'll replace it with XP pro SP3.
    I already have the drivers (from the Division of driver Toshiba), but I wonder if there are any issues that anyone knows how I could run in this case?

    I installed OS to my house several times, built offices with absolutely no problems whatsoever, but various articles I read there seems to be a bit of a 'ball game' different when it comes to laptops?
    Also I have Vista disks more so if XP will not install I can not simply go back to Vista.

    Tips, advice or warnings very welcome...

  • Re: Can I install WXP on Satellite L500D - 12 p?

    Yesterday, I received by Satellite L500D - 12 p, new with Free DOS. I would like to install Win XP, so when I put the installation CD of XP, came a few blue windows, something like BSOD, error screen with some kind of information that there is no space, memory to install. Then I heard accidentally than laptops usually cannot save hard drive, so I'll need some SATA and USB floppy or something like that the controllers (don't know which means that!).

    So, I wonder how to install Windows XP on L500D 12 p?

    Grateful, best wishes!

    Before you install Windows XP Home edition on your new laptop check if this model of laptop is WXP supported.
    I mean if you can't find the drivers of Windows XP Home edition and all the important tools and utilities there is no sense to start the installation of Windows XP Home edition.

    By the way: you created installation of recovery DVD?

  • Re: How to install HDD on Satellite L300-19Y?

    Hi guys

    I'm not too good with computers but have bought a new HARD drive for my L-series I've been informed that my HARD drive is maybe broken due to errors when I perform chkdsk checks and the fact that it freezes and crashes randomly.

    In any case, could someone tell me how to install the HARD drive? I bought an another similar to the original hitachi in the laptop, that is to say sata, 2.5 ", but got a 250 GB, rather than the 160. What I have to install anything, or have complicated everything to do? I don't know how to install it physically just don't know if I have to use my discs of recovery or something like that?

    Bravo guys


    There is no difficult things to do to swap the HARD drive. Which is a fairly simple process and he s done in 5 minutes I think.

    I have the Satellite L300 in front of me. To swap the HARD drive, turn off the laptop and remove the battery and the AC adapter. On the underside, you can find the cover of the HARD drive which is fixed by 2 screws. Remove the screws and the cover of the HARD drive, you are now able to exchange the HARD drive.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know! :)

    Hello, my friend

    To be honest, I don't understand what you mean with this error message. The fact is that report of people here on the problems with the installation of Windows XP Home edition because the HARD drive is not visible when installing WXP begins.

    To install Windows XP edition family on this laptop you need Intel Matrix Storage Manager and you can download it from the Toshiba support page. When installing Windows XP Home edition begins to press F6 and load this driver. The HARD drive will be recognized correctly and you can continue the installation of Windows XP Home edition. The problem is that you need USB floppy drive. You get one somewhere?

  • It is not installed driver WLan - Satellite A205-S5843

    Hi, is Marisa once again,

    I went to get my cell phone yesterday because the technical support has been updated of the MDI. After they have changed, and now I have a new surprise and it s the Wifi driver.

    It is said there isn t any driver installed.
    So my question is if these people need to be updated. they say that they already updated the MDI driver, BIOS and DVD.

    I just want to talk with them and explain everything because I don t think they know what must do and it s takes a long time.

    Thanks for your help once again and I'm sorry for my English...

    Hi Marisa

    In the Device Manager please check first the network cards.
    If you see a yellow exclamation mark then that would mean that your WLan driver is not installed correctly.

    This isn't a serious problem.
    What you have to do is visit the page of the Toshiba driver we and have to choose the section of Satellite A205-S5843 WLan driver.
    Download, unzip and install it.

  • Installing WXP on Satellite A300D 11s

    Hello, all.

    This question has already been asked not so long ago, but I would like to know more details. Do I need to use the Intel Matrix Storage HARD drive driver for installing WXP on Vista? Judging by the manufacturer of CPU - AMD - I have not. How the problem of 'visibility' SATA then be resolved? Or not be no problem at all?

    If you have already answered a question the same origin, can John, you please respond to mine? Maybe somebody could answer?

    What other problems can I face to replace Vista with the good old Windows XP Home on my A300D?

    Thanks in advance.

    How about you, the use of the nLite?
    nLite may include the SATA driver in XP operating system CD.
    So you n t overall 104MB just need only take the view the SATA driver files and include it using a nLite ;)

    Google for nLite and you'll get more details!
