Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S157 Notebook
I bought a new western digital 160 gb 2.5 internal ide ultra 100 hdd. I think I know how to remove the old drive and install the new one but what di I need to kow about booting up and using the reinstall disc that came with the computer
Not much, its all pretty automatic, just answer the questions.
After installing the WD, power up, open the tray, insert the reinstall disk and reboot.
One of 3 things will happen. It will boot to the CD and start installing, or press and key to boot from CD will appear (press any key quickly), or it will try to boot from the hard drive and fail. If you experience the last option it means that the hard drive is set to boot before CD. Yor system may have a boot menu option where you can select the boot device or you may have to go into the bios and change the boot order.
The follow link is to a Toshiba article that explains the boot menu and changing the boot sequence in the bios.
What it does not explain is how to access the bios. On some Toshiba system you have to press ESC right after you hit the power button, on others it is F1, on newer systems you have to hold the ESC while you press the power button and hold it until it display System Check and then press F1 .
