Any drivers for toshiba C850?



Im thinking of downgrading my toshiba satelite C850 (PSKC8C-07G00R) to windows xp because man, this thing is awful on windows 7 even though its default OS. Ive been forced to put it on he best settings such as puttijg on the classic theme and removing a bunch of visual effects its the only way to make it perform decently. Also would this perform good on xp?
2gb ram (1.89 usable)
1.70 ghz celeron

above are the drivers that toshiba has for xp

Where can I find device drivers for Windows XP for my computer model?

Toshiba posts all tested and available Windows XP device drivers on the Toshiba Support website, at Click the link for Tech Support Center, then selectyour computer family and model, and click GO. On the next screen, click Downloads, and then scan the listing for Windows XP drivers. It may help to select 'Windows XP' from the Filter by Operating System filter list. Be sure to read the complete description for each driver.

If you have already installed Windows XP, but have not found a driver for a particular device or subsystem, try searching the website of the device manufacturer. The Windows Device Manager (Control Panel, System) may provide model numbers, as may the Detailed Spec published for each computer model on the Toshiba Support website. It is also possible that Toshiba has Windows XP drivers available for other computer models which use the same device or subsystem as your model. These drivers may work correctly, though they are not officially supported for your model.
