How do I hook up my toshiba satillite 4100xdvd to


If you want a wired connection to the internet via high-speed broadband (DSLor cable), you will need an Ethernet PC Card (also called PCMCIA or CardBus).

If you want a wireless connection, look for a compatible 802.11b or 802.11g PC Card. (This assumes you already have a wireless access point.)

Make sure the driver for the card is available for your operating system. Since this computer can only have up to 192MB of RAM, you might want to look into using a Linux OS.

The unit appears to have a built-in modem, but I am guessing you are not asking about a dial-up connection.)

Hard drive crashed


Since the laptop is no longer even listed on the Toshiba site, you probably need a 2.5" IDE hard drive. You should be able to take it in to any reputable computer/electronics shop and they can tell you positively if it is an IDE device or not (I'd put money that it is). You should be able to use anything up to about 200GB. Anything bigger than that is dicey based on the age of the laptop (the built-in controller may not support drives larger than 200GB). And your recovery disk should not have a problem with using the larger drive although you may need to partition it yourself before running the restore disk since some of them hard-coded the partition information (which would give you a 30GB partition and the rest unused space which you could then use for a second partition with a separate drive letter than the rest of the drive)..

Update 4090 xcdt


Yes, you can upgrade from Win98 to WinXP. The minimum hard drive requirements for WinXP is 1.5GB and the minimum RAM requirement is 64MB. You will also need a CD ROM for the install. Now those are the minimum requirements so don't expect it to go very fast. If possible I would recommend you upgrade to Win2000. WinXP and Win2000 are almost identical. The minimum hard drive for Win2000 is 650MB and for RAM it is 64MB. So you could still use your 4GB hard drive and have plenty of room. You will need a CD ROM for the Win2000 also.
Good luck if you have anymore questons let me know,

Toshiba laptops satellite 4090


Hi, The laptop you purchased is an older model. It will use most any IDE laptop hard drive. The drive you mentioned from your Dell will work in it. You will need to pull the hard drive and put the sliders or hardware off the old one on to the new one. Look here for more info on your laptop. Look under portables.

Need to replace Toshiba Satellite 4090 XDVD hard drive


Any Techie should be able to do this for you, or you can try it yourself IF YOU PROCEED CAREFULLY. The small plastic trim strip just above the left and right click bars must be popped out and the keyboard removed to access the hard drive. I bought a 60 gig Seagate to upgrade the 6 gig that was in it and did it myself in about an hour. You will need to have the restore disc to reinstall all the drivers and the DVD player software. Mine is also upgraded to Win XP Pro. Runs a tad slow as RAM is maxed out at 180 megs but operates fine otherwise and plays movies without skipping. Hope this helps.
