    Hi,

    Recently I have bought Satellite L500 with Windows Vista. I hope Toshiba make the Windows 7 drivers soon so I can install Windows 7 Professional on my laptop. Why does it take so long?

    Would the drivers come I an few weeks or must we wait till next year?


    Greats, from the netherlands!!

    Hi Dennis,

    First of all Iím pretty sure that Toshiba will release Windows 7 for this model because I founded this: http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/KBA9A02PX0000R01.htm

    I think nobody at the moment can say how long it takes until Toshiba will release the drivers for this model but I can understand that not all drivers can be released on one or two days. I assume Toshiba do test the drivers before they upload them and this takes a little bit but I noticed that every day more and more drivers for Windows 7 will be released so check the Toshiba page from time to time.

    Regarding the Windows 7 drivers on the US page itís really nice to read that you have founded another model with the same specification so I assume the drives should also work on your model. Iím waiting for a feedback from you because Iím thinking about buying Satellite L500 for Windows 7 too so it would be very nice to read your experience with the drivers here. :)

    Hello,

    Windows 7 Professional is working correctly without installing any other driver!!
    Windows 7 Professional detect all drivers him self!! and my sattellite is running very smooth!!

    I get this scores in w7(1,0/7,9):
    CPU: 5,6
    RAM:5,6
    Aero:5,1
    Games:6,2
    HD:5,5

    Only with the installation i get some trouble, Install with the dvd dont work.... But installation wit a usb was very fast, and take only 30minutes.

    Grtz,

    Dennis
