    Toshiba Satellite Pro C850-10Z Windows XP Drivers

    Does anyone know where I can get Windows XP Drivers for a Toshiba Satellite Pro C850-10Z? Toshiba doesn't support official drivers for it on their site. Any ideas of the hardware or driver options?

    I re-imaged one of these recently with Windows 7 Pro 32Bit and it was a nuisance I have to admit!

    You can still choose Compatibility Mode in the BIOS, but I'm unsure whether or not you can get all suitable drivers for XP. It is a decent spec notebook and would run better with Windows 7 installed.

    They certainly do run better under 7, as does the vast majority of anything recent, but from Toshiba I tend to just use the relevant original OEM drivers - so for intel units that's the intel chipset drivers from intel.com, realtek sound drivers from realtek.com.tw so on and so forth.
