I am fixing a Toshiba Equium A60 (PSA67E) laptop. I originally installed windows xp with SP2 onto the system but I was getting blue screen errors/slow boots and programs did not load correctly, i.e. Internet Explorer crashed every time I opened it.
I reinstalled the O/S with XP and Service Pack 1. Seemed fine until I tried to install service pack 2 or direct x 9c, it wouldn't let me install those using windows updates. I then reinstalled XP + SP1 again and followed the recommended installations via the Toshiba website (there is about 40 Manual installations), then tried Service Pack 2 again. It still won’t let me install it. I have SP2 on CD which I also tried and I also downloaded the online version, still not working.
I am assuming it's a compatibility problem with older drivers, although the ATI mobility 700igp latest driver version is 2004? So I can’t get an update there, windows update did provided a newish (still 2004) update which made no difference what so ever.
Has anyone got any ideas on this????
I could just stick with SP1 but not having Directx9 is a real problem when reinstalling other software which requires it to run correctly.
