I have a toshiba satellite L305D-S59222 to downgrade from vista to xp pro sp2. In need of the sata drivers please sir. It has the AMD Athlon X2 dual core QL-62. Not having much luck in finding them for xp.. I found the modem and wifi drivers on the toshiba site. Tee list below are the drivers I have yet to find but still looking.. Any help would be appreciated. I picked this up at a pawn shop for super cheap and its brand new. Its a xmas gift for my only niece.. a little late because of the down grade though.
AMD Athlon™ X2 QL-62 Processor
2GB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz SDRAM
ATI® Radeon™ 3100
Atheros® Wireless LAN (802.11b/g)
Realtek RTL8102E Family PCI-E NIC
well that should be the correct driver set how did you try and install them ?
what you will need to do is add them to your windows xp install disk and please make sure your using windows xp with sp2 installed or the drivers may not work.
guide on how to get those drivers on your install disk can be found here. http://www.maximumpc.com/article/How-To-...stallation
okies dokies will try agian.. maybe its the files i am trying to put in? do i put in the entire downloaded package? extracted or not extracted? if extracted which files should be used or will nlite pick the correct ones?
nope didnt work so i gave in and switched to compatability mode in bios and got xp and all the drivers on, windows updated and working. The computer is actually working pretty good atm. Can i switch it back in the bios or does it need to stay this way? Never had to do it this way before.
i loaded the chipset and raid drivers. its really an odd setup really. i switched it back over but it blue screens then reboots.. will have to stay in comparability mode. it runs fine in this mode so i am not going to worry bout it. better than beating my head against the brick raid wall, and many new little coaster/frisbee slipstreamed cds
