After you installed Vista, did you download and install all the drivers
for your hardware (and also any laptop-specific software) from Toshiba?
If not, you need to do so. Hopefully Toshiba will have Vista drivers for
your model laptop. Get drivers from Toshiba's website.
That is the reason your display doesn't look right - you need the
correct drivers. If there are no Vista drivers available, contact
Toshiba tech support to see if they will be offering Vista drivers for
your model laptop. If they will not, then put XP back on the machine.
