    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 from here

    =================

    How To Find Drivers For An Unrecognized Device

    1. Open Device Manager (Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager)
    2. The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it's easier to locate the device.
    3. Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
    4. Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
    5. You should see a code similar to this

    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086
    &REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0

    6. The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:

    Vendor ID = 8086
    Device ID = 27DC

    7. Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to

    http://pcidatabase.com/

    There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.

    8. Then from there you can go directly to the hardware manufactureres website and get the driver.
    =============

    if not above then you might go to a driver search program:

    WATCH OUT, that you click on the download from slim utilities and not from download.com

    let it scan your pc and find the drivers for you
