Satellite M70 (PSM71) - can I upgrade it to Vista?

I upgraded my computer laptop M70 (PSM71) of Windows XP Home, XP Pro.

Can I upgrade it to Vista and how?
Thanks in advance



First of all if you want to use Vista on this laptop, then you should do a clean install of Vista!
Second, there is a 5.30 - VICTORY especially for Vista 32-bit BIOS update! This means that you must update the BIOS if you want to use Vista!

Regarding the Intel WLan driver:
Choose the one who is working on your laptop and who recognize the Wlan card!
The driver WLan can also be found here:

New BT stack can be found here:

WinDVD8 cannot be downloaded for Vista it s additional software and it s only on the Toshiba Recovery disk

Good bye

  • Satellite M70-151 - how to upgrade the display driver?


    as the topic says I ran out of options to update my graphics card Radeon X 700 on my laptop...

    I tried to see here:
    After installation, I learned that he had to go on the manufacturer's site to get my drivers

    So I ended up here:
    Still no idea who was the Radeon X 700 driver, I tried every update... Most did not anyway, and when I check my graphics card driver put in says that my current driver was 5 years old.

    Taking advantage of the distraction of the online games I noticed that went it a few seconds sometimes. Most people recommend that you update all my drivers, but it seems more difficult than I imagined

    So please, help me find the right link to update my graphics card! To help speed things up a bit, I added my DxDiag report.

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Sarahbella,

    You can download the driver on the Toshiba site. Therefore, check the link you suggested and look for your model of laptop. As far as I know Satellite M70 151 belongs to the series of PSM71E, to look for with these elements:

    Laptop > Satellite > Satellite M Series > Satellite M70 (PSM71)

    Download the driver and run the setup.exe file.

    Check this box!

  • Can I upgrade to Windows Vista or just get a new computer?

    As support ends for Windows XP can I upgrade to windows Vista or is supported ending for Vista also. If not, where can I get a version of Vista?

    This is not an upgrade from Windows 7 to Vista.

    It is a downgrade that Vista is the previous operating system before Windows 7 came out and you would have to BUY a COMPLETE of Vista version and do a fresh install of Vista; but before you buy Vista, check first that your computer manufacturer provides the Vista drivers for your model computer.

  • HDD upgrade on Satellite M70 (PSM71)

    Hi all

    After upgrading to 2 GB system memory, it was clear my HARD drive slow down the entire system with its noisy race. But looking at the list of "drives hard compatitable" doesn't bring much because there are all external solutions. So I searched and found a few hard drives internal seagate but I don't know if they are compatitable with Satellite M70. M70 does support ultra ATA or SATA?

    I have an external SATA HDD and can observe the difference in speed, clearly that's why I'm ready to upgrade the internal system HDD 5400 to 7200 RPM. As well, but I still don't know if M70 supports Sata or Ultra ATA drives. Need help at this point.

    Best regards

    Berk K.

  • Satellite A35-S159 - can I upgrade the CPU, GPU and HARD drive?


    I have one in my possession and I wanted to make a good game.

    I don't know if I'll be able to cause. It hurts thinking may be able to put a processor duo or quad, and I do not know if the CPU will be able to support a really good graphics card, and I also think about changing hard drive.

    Any1 know what hard drives are compatible with what I can use which are good for games?


    I m wondering that you want to upgrade this old notebook. In my view, that a new laptop would be a better solution.

    On the CPU and GPU upgrade I can only say s is not possible and not Toshiba support. The GPU is soldered on the motherboard and t can be exchanged.
    I think you should read this:

    The HARD drive can be upgraded. This isn t a problem.
    AFAIK the A35 Satellite is equipped with a s IDE HDD and this means that you buy a drive HARD IDE interface up to 128 GB.

  • Satellite Pro A120 - can I upgrade to Windows 7?

    I have a Satellite Pro A120 (model PSAC1A-045005 - purchased in Australia) I want to upgrade to Windows 7, XP
    The Toshiba Australia website says it is not compatible with Windows 7 and the Windows XP upgrade to Windows 7 is not supported.
    Searching the Web I found some sites that say they have the drivers on the computer. Only one address is the following:

    No doubt these drivers would be unofficial. They would be reliable or would it cause problems?
    I use a wireless router so would be particularly concerned if it caused problems with this

    To provide you with accurate answers, someone must have the same model of laptop and test it for you.
    To be honest, you will be very happy if someone here will do that for you.

    So my advice is: install Win7 and test these drivers only. If something is wrong or you will not be satisfied with the functionality, you can back up the operating system more former and supported when you want.

    Thank you.

    Hi, unfortunately you are unable to spend not generic parts in a laptop as they are designed.

    The only parts you can upgrade are the processor, memory, ODD, and HARD drive. But even in this case, not all components are compatible. For example, if the BIOS cannot recognize the new processor, the system may not start, or it will overheat, or operate at a slower speed.

    I found an article on the Toshiba site there explaining more in detail:
