If it says that the hard drive is not detected, then most probably its a busted hard drive. I doubt it's a motherboard issue since it was able to tell you that it can't find a hard drive. Plus the fact that there are spinning noises which can only come from either the hard drive or the fans.

My acer wont load when i first turn on, or load,gives 2 loud beep


Sounds like the hard drive is going bad. Take out the hard drive and see if the laptop behaves like that if it doesn't then you know the hard drive is bad. If it still does then it could be a motherboard problem.. With it making those beeping noises when you first turn it on, they keyboard could be going bad because that would make a laptop start beeping like that as well.

Reinstalled XP after putting in new HD. Delay issues


Is the HDD same as the previous one? I mean the specs. These laptops are very HW specific while desktops are free of any such problems. Moreover, Did you reboot the laptop before and after reinstalling the mouse drivers? please follow the procedure in the link below:

Toshiba A75 Wont Boot up


It sounds like you may not have made a good connection to the motherboard from the screen when you put everything back together.

When you press the power button does the screen come on and then go off or does it not come on at all ?

If it comes on then turns off try to eject the CD-Rom that will be a definitive test of whether your power is still on, assuming your cd-rom is not totally mechanical.

I AM TRYING TO INSTALL A NEW HARD DRIVE INTO MY TOSHIBA SATELLITE A75-S206 IS THERE A URL YOU KNOW OF WITH INSTRUCTIONS?


Various laptop mount hard drives differently.
Some are mounted on the bottom of the laptop behind a screwed panel and may be mounted in a cage and may have adapter that fit on the hard drive connector pins.
Other hard drives are fitted on the edges of the LH side or RH side of the laptop behing a plastic panel and this panel is held in place by a screw. Again the hard drive may be mounted in a cage and may have an adapter connector on the hard drive connector pins.
If you are not sure goto the Toshiba WEB site to download the user manual or service manual for your model laptop.

Windows dont come up.


I had this happen to me before with an IBM laptop. I bought a new hard drive, reinstalled a fresh OS, and had no more problems after that. I also went right to ibm website and did all the updates, as well as all the microsoft updates. So my same problem as your ended up being a bad hard drive. maybe check into that?.
