  1. determine what brand of hard drive you have.
  2. Go to that manufacturers support site.
  3. Download their self booting diagnostic CD iso image.
  4. Create the disk according to the instructions.
  5. Boot to the disk and run the most exhaustive tests available to determine if the drive is bad or not.

It is taking forever to use the recovery DVD to intall programs an a brand new Western Digital Scorpio 250 GB hard drive I bought for my Toshiba M35X-S114. BIOS doesn't detect the hard drive which is...


If it's a 250GB, the recovery DVD needs to format this drive (insofar as I know, Toshiba's recovery disks never uses quick format) - so .... yeah! It'll take a couple of hours just to prep the hard drive before the actual recovery imaging begins, and that's assuming that the hard drive formatted without errors.

If the hard drive has errors (bad sectors), it really could stretch out the total time. I've done a recovery on a hard drive that contained 100MB worth of bad sectors and it took an entire two days to put an image on it. Why'd I do it? I justed wanted to know how long it was gonna take...

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.)

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.
