    Hi guys; toshiba AMD C50 1GHZ Processor c655D-S5202 with win7
    I'm trying to download Flash Player to Stream from ESPN3 it sends to adobe site to download Flash player 15 but it wont download for what i understand need higher CPU processor and i try to download a older version but it always send me to the flash version 15,
    how can i get a version of flash that can run on ESPN3.
    Also i have Google chrome browser it runs but i can't open full screen.

    Also i have here in my scrap a toshiba L355D-S 7901 with AMD Turion X2 dual Core 2.3ghz cpu

    You're right. Your processor is too slow. "2.33GHz or faster x86-compatible processor, or Intel® Atom™ 1.6GHz or faster processor for netbooks" (per http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/tech-specs.html).

    I doubt that the processors can be swapped. Another member may have a more definitive answer.

    Perhaps this will help: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1022066

    Here's something at oldapps: http://www.oldapps.com/flash_player.php?system=Windows_7

    Also, I believe Google Chrome uses its own version of Flash Player.

    Good luck.

    thanks guys for your info.well this laptop has a broken Display and i'm just gonna use it for Slingmedia, i have an HD Sling box connected to my Sat receiver to watch tv remotely,it only works with win 7, it works good with sling media. I only run Linux on all my other Computers, I disconnected the internal display cable and use an external tv monitor, so this is a great plus, i will not spend a red cent on this ,not worth it,
