Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook

2 Answers

Multibooting My old computer running XP recently died but I had a cloned image of the hard drive saved on an external drive. My new computer runs Vista Home Premium. I copied the cloned image of the old hard drive to a separate partition on the new hard drive but many of the old programs will not run in Vista. Is there a way to boot to XP on the copied hard drive to run the old programs?

Hi, For a week or two now when i put my Sony Vaio on i get a message saying my hard disk is failing & to back up my files but when i put a disk in it fails to back up. It's also telling me the name...


You need to purchase a new hard drive and have it installed, If you have anything important on your laptop right now, that is what you want to create a backup of, or you can have the store you buy the hard drive from do the back up for you and most computer stores will load it all to the new drive for free

When i turn my compaq Evo N600c i get this message "1720 SMART hard drive detected imminent failure (failing attr : 05 ) " please help


If you want to save your data, start backing it up now!!!
That hard disk has detected bad sectors or other issues that is causing read, write or read/write failures.
The best thing to do if it's out of warranty is get a new hard disk and clone this drive to that one using a program like Acronis True Image.
Where you get the new hard disk will probably sell external enclosures or a USB adapter cable that you can use to have both hard disks hooked up at the same time to perform the drive cloning, or most computer shops if you are buying the drive from them will provide this service either free or for a modest fee.
Use the drive (meaning the laptop) as little as possible until you get a new drive into it.

The 261380-001 HD for my EvoN600c is dying. Can I upgrade to a larger capacity drive as long as I stay within the 2.5"/9.5mm size? Can I go to 100 gb?


As far as I am aware you can use a 640Gb drive if you can get one but that is a little too large!
120Gb should be fine.

I want to put in new hard drive e1505


i am assuming that your current hard drive is working, you just want to replace it with a bigger one.

you will need two things 1) a way to connect your new hd to your system (such as an external usb enclosure)
2) the software to properly clone the disk image and put it onto a new drive

go onto google and search "clone hard drive" you will find numerous free (or free for 14 days so you can do this before they expire) programs that can do this

here a few links with more details (plus links to the software)

Looking for possible hard drive how hard is it to self install --with windows xp


A few simple steps:

0. find your original Dell "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks, or order a replacement set from Dell, or run software on your computer to burn a set of "System Restore" disks.
1. do an "inventory" of installed programs (Adobe? MS Office?) and extract any "license-keys" you need (anti-virus software, purchased software).
2. backup your E-mail and contacts and music and other files, either to an external disk-drive, or burn some CD/DVD disks, or copy across your local network to another computer.
3. turn the computer off
4. disconnect the AC power
5. remove the battery
6. remove the old disk-drive
7. determine if it was an EIDE ("parallel-ATA") drive, or a SATA drive, and buy a new drive of the same type
8. mount the new disk-drive
9. reinsert the battery
10. reconnect the AC adapter
11. take your "System Restore" disks, and "boot" from the first disk, and reinstall Windows and the Dell applications
12. run Windows Update repeatedly (Service Pack 3, post SP3 fixes, Internet Explorer 8) to get all the fixes, and the fixes-to-the-fixes
13. install anti-virus software
14. install other purchased software, using license-keys you preserved
15. download the latest versions of "free" software (iTunes, Adobe Reader, WinAmp, et cetera)
16. import your "data" files

OR.................

if both the "old" and "new" disk-drives are SATA, and you have a desktop computer with two "unused" SATA ports, you can use software, such as the commercially-sold "Partition Magic", to "clone" the old disk-drive, and to "expand" the volume to span all the "unused/unallocated" space on the new drive, e.g., copy 20GB from "old" to "new", and then "expand" the 20GB partition to the full size of the "new" disk-drive. Install the new drive into your notebook computer, and enjoy the additional "free" space.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P205-S8811 notebook computer. My hard drive is running out of storage. I need more storage for programs and accessories. Can I expand the hard drive, or get an external hard...


If you do not want to buy a parger HDD for the laptop and clone the existing HDD to the new larger one, then I would go with a larger External HDD and move certain files to it like music and pictures that seem to take up most of the room.

Want to use clone hard drive to run XP


Because the HP and Fujitsu have different devices, you cannot clone (or create an image of) the hard disk and expect it to work on the other laptop.
Your best bet would be to copy your data files onto a USB memory stick or an external USB hard drive and plug it into the HP. You can open the files on the USB memory Stick/hard drive to work on them or copy them to the HP's hard drive to work on them.
When your Fujitsu has been repaired you can copy the latest files from the USB memory stick/hard drive back onto your Fujitsu.

Having problems upgrading my laptop hard drive !!!


From what I gather basically you want to copy everything off of your 40GB and put it on the new 320GB and the install correct? Why don't you do a backup (Start>All programs>System Tools>Backup to the external 500GB drive. Install the new 320GB drive and then load the operating system from your operating system disc, then restore the data from the 500GB you backed up, or am I missing something.I know it is not as convenient as cloning but sounds like you may need to do it the old fashion way..there is no good reason that the cloning software would quit reading your disc unless it's some kind of "only get one chance and throw away software".

No operating system on boot up - unable to fix MBR - refuse to believe hardware issue


I think your system has crashed so you need to do fresh operating system installation.You have mentioned that there is no partitions, it is sign of system's crash.
