I'm not sure what model of laptop do you use.But I'm pretty sure that all laptop have quite similar method to replacing the hard drive. It is below the laptop and usually at the screwed panel that you'll need to open have indicate a HHD symbol.

Replaced hard drive, computer isn't completely loading


If you replaced with a brand new HD then there are no files for the computer to read and boot from. You really have two choices, contact the vendor of the computer and see if they will offer you a set of the original installation disks. If not, you will have to go buy a new "operating system" set of disks ex: Windows 8 disks. You will not have any of the information you stored before as it was all on your old hard drive. However, in rare cases, a pulled hard drive that was unable to boot can be READ as an external drive. You can buy an external case for it and plug it into an operating computer and perhaps retrieve your files. You will not be able to transfer any programs. Just files like photos word processing etc.

My Windows 7 cannot recognize my Sata/usb connector


USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive. The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive. Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data. If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.

Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely. Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7). The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer. If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step. Ensure that the data cable is working properly. Try another USB cable if you have one available. Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive. Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized. Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected. If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port. If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem. Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager." For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter." Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives." If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears. The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly. If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced. Hope this helps.

`What is the password for phoneix bios setup utility


Toshiba has been leading the pack in this kind of security for years now. The only way to reset the BIOS password on THAT laptop, is to send it back to Toshiba.


Now, do you know what Toshiba will do next? Toshiba will ONLY send the laptop back to the current registered owner.



So, here is what you do. If the previous owner registered their laptop with Toshiba,

THEY have to transfer the ownership to you... you can't do that. THEN, you can send it back to Toshiba to have the BIOS password cleared.

THEN Toshiba will send it back, repaired, to you.

You cannot jump the BIOS chip, since the password is not stored there, but rather it is stored in an EPROM chip that does not require electricity.

So you cannot even remove the CMOS battery to clear the password.


You cannot use a special program and a floppy disc, because that Toshiba will not access the floppy disc before it accesses the BIOS... and since you will hit the password first, you can't access that software to try to clear the password


or you might try


restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

Reboot the computer As the computer is booting repeatadly press the F8 key as the computer is booting


If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.

Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only

and hit Enter one last time to quit DEBUG back to the C:\> prompt.
Now you're ready to reboot your PC, and press the appropriate key or key
combo (look it up in your motherboard manual if you don't know it) to access
your BIOS Setup.


Youll notice the password is gone.

Computer is not booting up. Usual blue light over power switch is red.


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this will help

My computer is powering on but it isn't booting up.


You can check your BIOS at startup. Right after the Beep press F2. sometimes it's a different key depending on the mobo. Change the boot order so your CD or DVD device is read before the hard drive. That way you can put in your linux boot disc, (or M$ Windoze)and boot from that disc.
If there is an error there will be a series of beeps. Those different beeps mean different things, check your motherboard manual onlineif you don't have a manual to see what's not detecting. Either graphic card, memory, keyboard, etc. Hope this helps you out

Sometimes this can be even simpler. Put in your Windows CD and boot to safe mode command prompt and type fixmbr. This will repair your master boot record for your primary boot harddisk. Eject the windows CD and reboot and see if it fixes your problem.

CDROM isn't recognized. Has interrupt conflict with hard drive


once you login to the safe mode and try to resolve it .. i am sure your problem will be resolved in the safe mode ...

because safe mode loads will the minimal set of drivers it is usually used to resolve the hardware conflicts, graphics related problems ..

you can go to the safe mode by pressing the F8 key at the system boot then you must select safe mode and press enter on it .. after that you will be in safe mode after some seconds .. then you can try to resolve the conflict ..

any further problem you can leave me a new comment ...
