    Hey,

    There are no drivers for the 1730 for windows XP... Toshiba list this as a legacy product and thus do not support it.

    I think this is made under licence and is actually an Acer machine thats been rebranded (or at least it comes out of the same factory).

    It maybe worth checking the acer website and looking for a similar machine, or check the origional chipset manufacturer for drivers.

    Last resort install windows 98 and get and use an upgrade version of XP rather than a clean install... messy but will usually work ok.

    Regards,
    Matt

      Hey,

      Im guessing they dont support xp as I cant find any drivers anywhere on the internet :(

      Upgrading from 98 is easy...

      Install win 98 as usual. Check its working ok.

      Stick in a Windows XP upgrade edition CD (NOT oem Full version), it will ask: "Do you wish to upgrade to windows XP"... select yes. Follow onscreen prompts

      Cheers,
      Matt

      hi hungcuong,

      I can only find drivers for windows ME, perhaps you should install that version of windows?

      then your system will run perfect.

      this is only for the 1730 and the 1715

      the 1605 is too old unfortunately.

      Goodluck,

      hi hungcuong,

      are you sure you are using the correct drivers?

      that should be the problem, because there could not be another reason.

      Hello Hungcuong,

      Don't worry about your english, I unsterstand your very well. You are doing good :)

      I am afraid i cannot give you much more help, because i have to see it, to repair it.

      perhaps the telephone line, does not work, because you didn't install the right drivers?

      goodluck,

      Thanks for reply
      I don't think so. Because i try with 1605cds, it is very good. But windows on this machine was install by manufacture. 1715xcds, 1730 and another 1605cds were re-install by me. The origine operation system are windows 98. I like windows XP so i have installed windows XP. Do you remember. Althought 1715xcds need 34n3.cat file to accept driver their modem. But i have found this file in 1605cds. But they haven't it. Because my windows 98 is adriff, no copyright. Possible all of windows in my contry is criticize by hacker. So they are sell very cheap. If you only have $1, you can buy 2 disk of windows. SO i thinks all of windows are short of file for laptop machine special laptop isn't diffuse in Viet nam.
      If you can, please help me again.
      Have good day.

      Hi hungcuong,

      If i understand it correctly, you have the driver for the modem (telephone line), but you got the driver for windows 98, and not the driver for windows XP.

      That is the big problem with older hardware, because XP needs special drivers. i seached on google, but i can't find it anywhere. I think the best solutions would be to install windows 2000 pro. That would be the most recent windows version, and you can get drivers for that version of windows

      try here :

      hi hung

      I have got a full copy of windows 98, but as this is illegal to send someone;), and (...)it's a dutch version.

      you could try download windows 98 with bittorrent.

      first install bittorrent : http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/bittorrent/BitTorrent-4.0.4.exe?download

      then search on torrent site's for windows 98

      for example :
      http://www.mybittorrent.com/bittorrent/software/windows_98_se_oem,41228.html

      goodluck,

      I see.
      thanks for your help.
      I couldn't find any file this web page i need.
      Please tell me if i haven't a version windows 98 full what i am giong on and how. My frend have said with me that error is possible reason by driver. He said: If driver is correct. The machie is auto creat CABS folder. But the origine when i finish install windows 98. It hasn't sound. and i copy cabs folder from the another machine. the sound is good now. I have found the same file for modem but it isn't. So i can't install driver for modem.
      Please help me
      Goodluck

      hmmz, i don't think i help you much more here, perhaps search for some people in area. Its would be more practical too work with the machine itself. Perhaps its something simple.. But being behind the computer itself, would make it much easier to repair.

      Sorry that i cant give you more advice then this.

      goodluck with the problem,

    I do know that Toshiba Data Dynamics in Singapore may have this software...However, it is best if you will to contact the customer service center of Toshiba at your country to help u solve the problem.

    U might want to go www.toshiba.com or the following website

    http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modItemList.jsp#PublicList

    for 12-20-2001 Special Toshiba Registry Update for Windows XP (v1.0.0; 12-19-2001; 275K)

    This will help as it will change ur laptop registry to change to WIndows XP version for Satelite 1730


    These may help

    Hello:

    If you have legacy Satellite laptops, they may not be able to run Windows XP.

    You may want to visit this site for information on compatibility of hardware with XP:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;295322

    When XP was first released, Microsoft had a program available that could be run under Windows 98 on a machine that would evaluate that machine's capability of running Windows XP.

    The quick alternative is to study the requirements stated on the XP package and compare that with what is in your laptops.

    Beyond this, I am not able to find an immediate solution.

    Good luck.

    toshiba notoriously does not have many drivers on their website (and wont email you when you point that out) - they say you have to use the system restore cd.

    I've had good luck finding drivers though - you have to hunt them yourself if they are not on their website - by the chip manufacturer etc etc (and plentiful use of usenet newsgroups).

    you might also try driversguide.com as noted above.


    I'm sure someone could help you find these if you need assistance and are willing to pay them a bit of $ :)

    Have you tried to find out the different hardware controllers in the laptop? I you can do so, then you could get the drivers from the chipsets manufacturers. You can get some clues about them form the drivers already installed in the machines.

    • kanmelvin kanmelvin
      It might be best if u contact the service centre of your country for help. This is because if there is no driver or any other updates at the website, this might be that the organisation has started to phase out this model to accomodate newer ones. Secondly, they might feel that it is not correct to post everything on the web so by controlling these drivers and etc, they can judge and test the market on how many users used XP on S1730 and whether there is a need to change OS to suit the particular range of machines

      Hey Brother, I have checked wif my colleagues around and they said that they are facing out the model as thus no more drivers etc are to be done and posted on the web itself. U could access www.toshiba.com and there is a customer service icon that you can click to send email to them.

      U might want to call the site office in Ho Chi Minh city and ask them... Since u r in Vietnam it might be easier for them to help u straight away. It is better than u email the pple in Toshiba at US. They will have to consult the Vietnam office in the end. Rather than to make u go a round about trip, why not go to the site office straight away in ur country? It is definitely better and faster that way.
      Somemore, if u email them it takes ages to reply which I think is not good as I think u wan to solve the problem as soon as possible.

      My time is Singapore Time Sun 30 October 11.47 am.
      If that is the case, then perhaps my confirmation is correct in that they are phasing out the model and thus they do not wish to create new drivers or windows platform for that particular model in this case 1730.

      Since that is the case I temporary cannot find any way to help you at the moment but do please be rest assured that I will continue to find a way to solve your problem
