Toshiba Satellite R830-1GZ Windows XP drivers…

Hi there,
just bough myself a Toshiba Satellite R830-1GZ since I got a great deal and is going to be in place of my EEEPC 1215N…. as I stated in the previous posts, I love XP so the great thing about Toshiba R830 is that you can find all the drivers and utilities for XP on R830.

I’ve made a package with everything you need for an R830-1GZ (no 3g module or fingerprint sensor)

Intel Chipset
Intel Graphics:
Intel HDMI Audio Driver:
Audio Realtek:
Intel LAN: 15.7
Ricoh SDCARD Reader:
Toshiba Touchpad ON/OFF:
Toshiba WiFi Key:
Atheros WiFi
Toshiba USB3:
TOSHIBA Sleep Utility
TOSHIBA Common Module V6.07.02 (FN KEYS)
TOSHIBA HDD Protection
TOSHIBA Controls v3.37.4310 (Buttons on TOP RIGHT)
TOSHIBA Power Saver 7.14.03
Toshiba Bluetooth Stack 6.00.0601.0
Bluetooth Filter Driver Package Atheros 1.0.4

I had no problem so far with these last driver from Toshiba Website, only one thing happened to me, everything was fine on Windows XP English version. In the Windows XP Italian edition, on the contrary, the WiFi Fn-F8 could trigger on/off only the bluetooth. Looking at the app/registry settings I’ve found that the WiFi card Vendor/Model/Subsys were not in the app list of “managable” devices.

So what I did I replaced one all the registry keys in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Toshiba




VEN_168C&DEV_002B&SUBSYS_661311AD (that was my device ID for some reason)

and that did the job (I could not remember with or without a reboot 🙂 )

Drivers here (self extracting package 165MB)

PS I’ve installed Windows XP Sp3 from DVD using Nlite before to integrate the latest SATA drivers



—– edit 02nd March —-

is better if you install the software to manage properly FN+F5… but it’s up to you.

My Toshiba become were slow and unusable…such a shame for an i5.. got rid of Windows and installed Mountain Lion..

if you want to give it a go here are the instructions.

I strongly suggest to anyone not familiar in installing OSX on PCs to buy a sata hard drive and do the install there so you can easily go back to a working system if you have problems etc..

Asus EEE 1215N Windows XP….drivers…

just got my new EEE Asus 1215N with Windows 7 on it… 😦 I really don’t like it I’m old I like Windows XP and also I do a lot of scripting for other clients and I use my laptop as a test machine so I need to have XP on it.

Here’s the specs(from PCWizard)

> Platform : Intel PineTrail
> Motherboard : Asus 1215N
> Chipset : Intel NM10
> CPU : Intel Atom Dual-Core D525 @ 1800MHz
> RAM : 2048MB (2 x 1024 DDR3-SDRAM )
> Video Card : Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator 3150
> Hard Disk : Seagate ST9320325AS (320GB)
> Monitor : HSD121PHW1 – 12″ (16:10)
> LAN : Attansic (Now owned by Atheros) AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet
> WLAN : Broadcom BCM4313 802.11b/g LP-PHY
> USB 3.0
> Bluetooth 3.0

If are going to buy this I think is great just to things bother me a little: touchpad button (hard to press) and power supply plug is very tiny and I think easy to break if you are a frequent flyer so pay attention)

P.S. I suggest you to install after synaptics touchpad this program and disable all the two fingers gestures in synaptics utility, with this one you can right click on the touchpad like on the iPhone (one finger+ tap with second finger)

So I removed 7 and installed XP SP3 on it, and voilà everything works except…. that damn Optimus ION2 Nvidia… my hardware ids are: VEN_10DE&DEV_0A76&SUBSYS_84461043 and

I’ve tried this so long:

– Asus 1015N WinXP drivers (adding also my hw info to the inf cause they weren’t there)

– Asus 1215N drivers (on site support page are claimed as WinXP/Vista but in the inf are only Vista/7)

– 260.63 beta from Nvidia which is the nearest thing that I’ve found: in the inf there is already a VEN_10DE&DEV_0A76&SUBSYS_84471043 instead of 8446 I’ve tried to modify the info but in the end no good results at least I have my device recognized with Yellow Mark in Device Manager)

if you look at nvam.inf you’ll find in

260.63 vista verde notebook beta

%NVIDIA_DEV.0A76.01% = Section057, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0A76&SUBSYS_84461043

%NVIDIA_DEV.0A76.02% = Section057, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0A76&SUBSYS_84471043

260.63 XP verde notebook beta

%NVIDIA_DEV.0A76.01% = Section040, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0A76&SUBSYS_84471043

hope that in a future beta for XP Nvidia will include the same hardware that is already in the Beta for 7/Vista.

if anyone has news about it please comment this post, so we can be helpful to others… (also to me 🙂 )
—EDIT 11 October —

I’ve made a self extracting RAR package with the drivers for windows XP (as October 2010)

password: roadtoyourass

You can find in it:

Asus ACPI Driver v. (to have brightness control working)
Audio-V6_0_1_6098 (for 7 and XP)
Intel Chipset
Atheros AR813X/AR815X LAN (for 7 and XP)
Broadcom WIFI (for 7 and XP)
NVIDIA HDMI Audio driver xp_vista_win7_1.00.00.59

also in the package you can try out TwoFingerScroll the touchpad software mentioned above.

You should have at end of the install just the NVIDIA card not recognized.
