Having a 1 Year old Toshiba Laptop that came with Vista,   I am wanting to reformat the hard drive and load Windows XP Professional on it and I am being told by the computer tech that the CPU will only work with VISTA and I never heard of that.    Can I  put XP on my Toshiba Laptop and if so how do I get the XP Drivers for the other components in the laptop ?
