Toshiba Satellite P10 PSP16C troubles..

    I have just a simple problem (hopefully) on a Toshiba Satellite one of my
    customers brought in. As the subject notes, it is a Satellite P10 PSP16C, or
    to better describe it, the Satellite P10 with a Mobility Radeon 9700. They
    had a massively infected system, and I was to reinstall Windows XP MCE.
    Everything seems to work fine except one little problem: Media Center says
    the drivers or video card are not compatible. Media Center (not the OS, the
    program) also seems to run a bit slowly. Normally, not a problem; click "OK"
    and it still "works" fine. However, this customer is a bit picky and any
    extra clicks and he's not happy. I've tried the drivers from Toshiba's
    support site, as well as ATI's (which, of course, do not work, as it is a
    mobility radeon); also searched through the knowledge base and couldn't find

    My question is, has anyone else had this problem? Or at least seen something
    similar? If so, was there a fix?

    P.S.: The system came pre-installed with Media Center, so it should be
    working fine, in theory.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. As you're aware, Mobility graphics chips are custom built to the notebook
    manufacturer's specifications so the Toshiba drivers should work.... I'd
    contact Toshiba if they don't... or rerun the search to make sure you're
    getting the MCE specific drivers from the Toshiba site and not the ordinary
    XP Pro ones.

    Tried searching around again; still got nothing. Also, I was pretty sure I
    grabbed the MCE drivers, but redownloaded them, just in case. Still the same
    problem. It's really not much of a problem, as it still works fine; if I have
    to, I can tell the customer that there is no work around and he'll just have
    to settle for clicking "OK" every time he opens it (that's not so bad when
    you consider what he had before..)
