There are a couple of easy things you can do to tune it up. You can do a disk cleanup and a disk defrag.

To cleanup (assuming you're on XP):
Start-->All Programs-->Accesories-->System Tools-->Disk Cleanup

Select the drive you want to clean. It will tell you everything you can get rid of and all you have to do is select it and click ok.

To defrag (assuming you're on XP):
Start-->All Programs-->Accesories-->System Tools-->Disk Defragmenter

Select the drive you want to defrag and click analyze. It will tell you if you need to defrag it. This usually takes an hour or more to do, depending on size of drive and computer performance.

Furthermore:
Use Add/Remove Programs from Control Panel to remove any unwanted programs on your computer.

Need to do a system recovery of a Toshiba Satellite U-305 S7448 (Vista Home Premium). I have the manufacturer's recovery disks. My laptop is well backed up and I am ready to go. Have done this before...


Nothing special. Just configure your laptop to boot from the CDrom drive (before the HDD). You will have to open the BIOS configuration and change the boot order.
Insert Disk1 in the drive and restart the computer. Follow the instructions.

We have got Toshiba satellite c640 's hard disk problem .


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Can I use a Toshiba recovery disk for A210 series if I have an A505 series? They are both Windows Vista


That is about the only thing thew same about them other than the name Toshiba. The A505 is an Intel Processor, the A210 has an AMD processor. They have completely different video graphics chipsets, audio, and LAN configurations, Assuming that the A210 disc will load in the A505, you would not get proper video, audio or LAN drivers. Recovery disks are made for the machine they are bundled with. You can try, but don't be surprised if your result is less than optimal.

How do I lock my Toshiba Satellite L500 laptop


You can put a Power On Password of your Toshiba, this will prevent unauthorized access to youe laptop. If you forget this password then you will have problems unlocking your Toshiba.
The Power on Password is configured in the BIOS under sercuity settings.
You can also put a password on the hard drive and if your Toshiba is stolen and they remove the hard drive out of your Toshiba into another laptop they cannot get access to the data on your hard drive.
NOTE if you forget the hard disk password you will not be able to access your hard disk.

In case of Laptops the Power Saving might be also controlled by propriety configuration of the manufacture. Read the laptop's manual and make sure that there is No addition or restrictions to the OS' native Power Saving settings.

Once it starts make sure to backup all your essential data. Then download the diagnostic disk utility from the disk manufacturer website and check the disk for errors.

Alternatively, check the SMART status of your disk by downloading Passmark SMART monitor.
