I'm searching specs for a Toshiba laptop for my cousin, I cannot see a replacement battery for a model he likes, what are all the A205 models out right now. I believe he has the A205 S5815 there no listing of it in the A205 series but there is in the 215 series but the specs stat it has an AMD processor, the one looked up as an Intel processor. Can anyone help please

Yep it doesn't list it but any battery listing A205 and A215 should be okay.

Oh, hey is there any way to format the HDD install XP (will have Vista) and get all the cool apps from Toshiba...Like the Wireless Signal Finder etc... Possible?

Also when formatted where can one find drivers for mobo, cpu, ethernet, graphics etc...

I have done a few Vista to XP down grades. Sometimes the manufacturer will have drivers listed for XP, more often then not, then don't. You can usually have good luck going to the chipset manufacturers sites. Usually with google you can track down the drivers.

Ok, bought a Toshiba installed XP with all drivers (everything working fine)

Now at the start screen it wont display any options (before it would say press F2 for......) after that it would go into a black screen stating NTLDR is missing.

Which I can fix IF I could boot from USB/CD but I'm not given those options...PLEASE HELP!!!!!!
