    Hi. I have a Toshiba Satellite A100---> T2250 laptop. It has a 1.73GHZ
    Processor with 1 Gb of ram. It also has a 120 GB Hard Drive. It originally
    came with windows vista home premium so I decided to downgrade to windows xp
    pro. Now when it is in xp, the power options such as standby and hibernate
    are gone. Does anyone know how can I re-enable these options on windows xp
    pro?
    Please let me know asap.

    Thanks,

  2. You'll have to visit the Toshiba support web site and download
    Windows XP compatible video display adapter drivers (if available)
    designed for your specific Toshiba model laptop computer.

  4. Did you install the Toshiba Windows XP display driver
    or are you using the generic display driver installed
    initially during the Windows XP installation?

  7. Contact Toshiba to acquire WinXP-specific device drivers and utilities,
    if any exist. They probably won't if the laptop was originally designed
    for Vista. (And Toshiba may not give you any support, as you've removed
    Vista.)

    I didn't completely remove vista I just installed XP on the 2nd partition. I
    managed to get it to work. What I did is I reinstalled the display drivers
    for the third time and it finally worked. Now I have a problem when I play
    any game. I dont get this problem on vista because I tried the games in
    vista, then in xp. The problem is when I load the game, it gives me the
    following critical error:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    No Label

    OS: Windows XP 5.1 (Build: 2600)
    CPU: GenuineIntel PentiumPro-class processor @ 1728 MHz with 1013MB RAM
    Video: Mobile Intel(R) 945GM/GU Express Chipset Family (4820)

    Negative delta time!

    History: UGameEngine::Tick <- UpdateWorld <- MainLoop
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Another time I tried it I got this error:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    No Label

    OS: Windows XP 5.1 (Build: 2600)
    CPU: GenuineIntel PentiumPro-class processor @ -164 MHz with 1013MB RAM
    Video: Mobile Intel(R) 945GM/GU Express Chipset Family (4820)

    Negative delta time!

    History: UGameEngine::Tick <- UpdateWorld <- MainLoop
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    It seems like the CPU speed changes in each of the errors.
    Does anyone know what the errors are caused from and how I can fix it?
    I have all the up to date programs installed such as direct x.
    Let me know what you are supposed to do to fix this error.
    Thanks :)
