Sorry, the operating system cannot be substituted. However, Toshiba still sells a number of models with Microsoft Windows XP Professional installed. Check it out:

Question

Can't Create Recovery discs on L500

I have tried on a number of occasions to create the Recovery discs on my Satellite L500 which is only 4 months old. I was using Verbatim DVD +RW and on each occasion the disc failed with the message that it could not read "D:\sources\boot.wim". This occurred on three occasions. After reading a post suggesting the use of a DVD-R disc I tried again and again the disc failed this time with a different error message. Any suggestions?

An HDMI port is required to connect a laptop to an HDTV. There are three Satellite L500 models which have an HDMI port: L505-ES5034, L505-GS5039, and L505-ES5042.

Two Satellite L500 models have integrated Bluetooth®. These include the Satellite L505-GS5039 and L505-ES5042.

Bluetooth® is also offered as a configurable option on the following L500 models sold through ToshibaDirect.com:
- L500-ST2543 (15.6-inch display)
- L500D-ST2543
- L500-ST2544
- L550-ST2743 (17.3-inch display)
- L550-ST2744

The rest of the Satellite L500 models can be adapted for Bluetooth by using the Toshiba Bluetooth™ V2.1+EDR USB Nano Adapter:

How do I connect this laptop to a standard tv (ie s-video, yellow rca or red,green,blue rca input)?

If your TV has a VGA (RGB) input, that would be the best output to use. If your TV has no VGA input, you'll need a separate scan converter to convert the laptop's VGA signal to an S video or composite video signal that can be plugged into your TV. The Avermedia iMicro is an inexpensive scan converter that does a pretty decent job. If you use a scan converter, be aware that the displayed resolution on your TV will be vastly inferior to what you see on your laptop screen.
