I have to comment on this.

Unless you had Toshiba send you a copy of Windows 7 specifically for your model, with all the drivers/software it would have on Vista, you'll be stuck without them unless you manually install them.

Another option is to upgrade from Windows Vista (the version with all your features and what not) to Windows 7. That way it would preserve your drivers/features. Though I don't really advise this unless you really really need them, as in most cases (for me anyways) upgrading from Vista to 7 (or XP to Vista) causes the OS to be a bit slower then it would be on a clean install.

Just needed to add that. You could also call Toshiba Tech Support as well, see if they have a place to download the software.

windows 7

My university offers it as a free download.

However when I installed it, there were two options, upgrade from vista or clean install, I chose upgrade because I wanted all my files to stay, but when I tried that it didn't work, saying the only option I could use was the clean install. So I saved my files and downloads onto a flash drive and then installed 7. I didn't know it wouldn't keep my drivers etc..

You could also turn off Areo effect this would use less memory and possibly dimm your screen as well as speed it up some. Key word Possibly. Fabe

You can turn it off by selecting another theme other than a Windows Aero theme. :)

Windows 7 Ultimate

Have you tried running windows update yet? You can access if via control panel.. A number of times, I have installed 7, had it come up lacking drivers for sound etc.. and a simple pass on Windows update, actually downloaded my missing drivers straight from Microsoft's website. So far, this has worked 100% of the time, but I have yet to install it on a modern laptop..
