Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
Toshiba model number psaa8u-02000u
I need to safely remove the hard drive and then reinstall it. I have an infected drive and wish to remove it, install to a portable usb drive holder, and then plug it into a protected system and run virus scan on the drive. Any advise would be appreciated. I would then need to reinstall the drive and get my wireless connection to the Internet back.
Why not just go to safe mode with networking support then scan the drive with housecall over at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ or one of the many other free online virus scanners.
Seems to me it would be easier than removing the drive. ut if your dead set on removing the drive usually if you look at the machine there will be a pannel on the front about an inch wider than the drive itslf. flip the computer over and there should be one screw in the middle of that pannel or paossibly one on each end.
Unscrew them and the drive should slide right out. If you take them out and it still is stuck in there then pull the pannel out a bit and look inside for an extra screw, but most of the time its just the one.
When putting it back in make sure you have it back in the hard drive enclosure correctly and the addapter on if it was on it when you pulled it out, then just slide it back in and put screws in.
hope this helps.
