You will need to purchase a windows xp or vista disc. Better to get an XP disc, it will run better on that machine since you probably have less than 2 G of memory. Many retail outlets sell the disc's, it is just the operating system. You can format the hard drive with it and reload the windows. If you want the original disc, it is unlikey that you could ever find it. It is old now and the manufacturer will no longr carry it. You can try checking with their website.

You can use the windows install cd to perform these operations. You can buy the version of windowsyou want from ebay if you don't own a copy

www.ebay.com

A windows xp or 2000 setup cd will work with any computer laptop or desktop, after the setup you will most likely have to look drivers from the laptop makers website or just google.

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!


  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          Toshiba bios password removal process is meant for use on Toshiba laptops that you own or have had permission from the rightful owner to remove the password. If any of these processes are done incorrectly it may result in complete system failure or permanent system damage (you've been warned!).


          Some Toshiba bios passwords can be reset using the Key Disk.exe utility, to do this you need a 1.44Mb floppy disk. Format the disk using Windows and then with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59 00 00.

          Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you'll be asked for a password, just press Enter. Then when you're asked to set the password, type Y then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then type in a new password.

          Aside from the KeyDisk, you can build a parallel Loopback plug, this is a simple device that plugs into the parallel port of the machine and removes the password when you boot it up.

          To make it you will need a 25 pin DB25 plug, take the plug apart and join these pins using some old cable;
          Pins: 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15, and 18-25

          adaec67.gif
          Plug it into your parallel port and boot up your machine, the password should be removed as soon as it boots.

          Note: This will work on majority of older Toshiba's (1995 – 2002) and obviously only ones that have a parallel port.

          Most Toshiba laptops you need an adapter that jumps several wires across the Parallel port which triggers the BIOS to reset. You can purchase those online at places like EBAY.

          Installed new hard drive into Toshiba M35X-S163 due to old HD completely breaking, installed new 320gb HD, but the recovery disk from Toshiba doesn't want to work, keeps 'cycling' the recovery process,...


          You will need to talk to whoever you got the HD from. It should have come with a format disk since HD have barely changed over the last ten years they can still be setup for just about anything form FAT16 to the latest Mac use.
          The reason you are having troubles is that the HD doesn't know what format you are giving it. Whenever i have bought a new HD it comes with a disc to format then you are good to use the OS disc to load up it is possible that the recovery disc is setup only for a Toshiba setup HD and not another generic format. you might what to call the toshiba help line (800) 457-7777 that is straight from their website. Best of luck my friend

          Check the HP website and see if there are Vista drivers for your model. If you installed them from the disk they're likely not compatible.

          I need to replace my hard disk notebook with a bigger capacity hdd


          Toshiba is rather secretive with their documentation. It is hard to find. Google TOSHIBA SATELLITE A10 SERVICE MANUAL and check the available offerings.

          You now have a 5400 RPM, ATA 100 drive. You should not have any drive size restrictions. Shops are advertising many large drives as compatible.

          I suggest that you purchase only a 7200 RPM drive. The faster speed will perk your machine right up.

          I have not worked on Toshiba machines but suggest you have all restore disks and passwords at hand.

          Windows xp wont reload


          This happens so much with upgrades! We think we are making our pc's better, and then find it doesn't like it. I am assuming you completely uninstalled millenium, then tried to load xp? If you did not, the registry still has parts of millenium on it, and is asking for this. You need to completely uninstall millenium first. You need to obtain mill copy, and select uninstall, then when done, put in your new xp disk and try again. Lilacgerry xxx

          Reinstallation with recovery disk


          I've had myself almost same problem in my 5200-801, but with reading DVD's.
          It was allready the second dvd/cd drive replaced by Toshiba.
          Then I replaced the DVD/CD drive myself because I ran out of guarantee, with one bought from the internet and much cheaper than the original one. A multi drive which even do the lightscribe job and that one works very well.
