My Toshiba Satellite A135 S2276 originally came with Vista. I bought just a full version Windows 7, but now I can't adjust the touchpad - Windows 7 thinks it just a mouse - and I can't get the right screen resolution. Stuff is stretched out. And my graphics such (although that might be my card's fault.)

Can anyone give me some suggestions?

You may want to post a little more information.

Are you going up to Windows 7 64 bit or 32 bit?

Are you trying to run just off of the drivers from the Windows disk, or have you tried drivers from the Toshiba site?

I mean, I bought the a full blown version Windows 7, not just an upgrade, and did a clean install. I hate all the garbage I have to delete with factory PC Windows.

But now it doesn't have some of the special controls for devices that are unique to Toshiba laptops, like the Synaptics touch pad controls I mentioned.

I understand that, but your Windows 7 would be either a 64-bit version or a 32-bit version, and I was asking which one you installed.

Click/Refer to the second link already provided by Midknyte.
It leads to the peculiar procedure for post Windows 7 clean installs.
