Question about Toshiba Satellite 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Slow computer My toshiba 1410 15" laptop has slowed down excessively and I would like to wipe the hard drive. I have since bought a new dell desktop, and I do not have the OS disk for the toshiba (windows xp) as it was given to me by my sister w/out it. I have no need for any of the info on the toshiba but would still like to use it instead of waiting 10+ mins for it to load. Is there any way to wipe the hard drive or partitions w/out the OS disk?

I'm trying to increase hard disk space on a Dell


The Dell Inspiron 1100 is a laptop whereas the Dell Dimension 2400 is a desktop pc.

The hard drives are incompatible because they are a different size, plus the Inspiron only supports one hard drive so you can't install a slave device. The only way to increase hard disk space is to buy a large capacity internal IDE laptop drive or an external hard drive.

Want to wipe hard drive on dell dimension 8250

You don't need a recovery cd (or any other cd) to wipe the hard drive. Boot to a command prompt and type "format c:"

Reinstalling your operating system is the only time you need a recovery cd. If you have no way to reinstall your operating system, don't wipe the hard drive.
