Having problems with your Toshiba Portege M400-S4032 Notebook ?

Toshiba Portege M400 to Vista

\015 Hi\015\012\015\012I have a Toshiba Portege M400 (PPM41E-00J01CHK), with 2GB RAM, and an Intel centrino 2.0Ghz dual core processor. Toshiba say that my laptop is Windows Vista capable, and I am interested in upgrading from the XP tablet edition pre-installed on it to Windows Vista Ultimate. The problem I am having is that I do not know where to get official Vista specific drivers for this laptop from. I presume that Toshiba will have some drivers otherwise they wouldn't have put a sticker on my laptop saying 'Windows Vista Capable'. I am in the UK by the way. Please help me out,\015\012\015\012Deez Kelb\015

Answers :

Te toshiba europe site is best. They have all the drivers that are avaiable for free - If you are doing a manual install you will need to install them in order. The main thing is to ensure that the Raid driver is instaled else WISTA will not see your drive. There is an issue with the Power managing drivers I am informed. I sucessfully instaled VISTA without the Recovery disk. But I think having the recovery disk partition would e a distinct advantage.
Here's a link for Toshiba's UK site. I looked around a bit and they don't seem to offer much in the way of drivers. You might try driverguide.com I've found it to be a good place to find those hard to find drivers, plus it's easier to use than most manufacturer's sites.
