Toshiba Motherboard and Harddrive

ClockWire I have aToshiba Qosmio, G15 AV501. It came with 2 HDDs in it. One is a 60 Gb and the other is a 40 GB. I would like to know if I can put a 200 Gb HDD in place of the 40 Gb that is in it now? I in addition I would like to know if I can replace the Motherboard which is an ATA, configuration, with another Motherboard that supports SATA? I hope this is clearer with both questions.

Hard drive not showing in bios


It appears that your #2 hard disk has died. To test if it is faulty, remove the #2 drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into the USB port of a working computer. If the computer see it as an external USB drive and you can see the folders and open the files, then it is OK and the fault is possible the disk controller.
If the hard drive is not recognised then it is faulty and needs to be replaced.

New hard drive for my Toshiba Qosmio G15 R laptop


I believe with Toshiba they normally would give you a recovery disk and then a drivers and utilities disk as well. If you don't have both then I would suggest installing windows xp and then go to this page:http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=835452&rpn=PQG10U&modelFilter=G15-AV501&selCategory=3&selFamily=804517Click on the downloads button and from there choose your operating system and you can download the drivers from that page.You'll know which drivers you'll need by going into the device manager and seeing what has a yellow question mark next to it.If you need more help with this let me know and I'll help you more.

I have a Toshiba Qosmio G15R and I need drivers


I went to the Intel site and downloaded the Intel® PRO/100 VE Network Connection driver here. It worked great. Now if I could find the right audio/multimedia drivers I'd be happy. Hope this helps.

Toshiba G15-AV501 Qosmio - no video 1) Following is what I have tried - and did not work, by the way everything I installed had worked for over a month w/o problems, until...no video The problem began when...


Well, I have good news for both of us.

Not only did I find a fix, it's free.

The F15 and G15 series Laptops (which we both have), have an Out-of-Warranty fix (for free). This is not normal, as you may know. The reason it's free, the motherboard is defective... I just called today and they're still replacing the motherboard for free!

Go to the Toshiba website and call their Tech Support number. They'll tell you it's out of warranty and they're going to charge you, just ignore all that. When you get your foreign tech support person on the phone, tell them you've read that the F15 and G15 series were defective and were being replaced free (even without warranty). They'll get your product number of the laptop, process the order, ship you a box (pre-paid shipping), you ship the laptop to them, they fix it, they ship it back, you're back in business!

FREE!

I had the same problem, what you need to do is call Pamela Saunders at Toshiba Corporate in Irving, CA and she will get it repaired for you at no cost to you regardless of warranty. This is a bad batch of computers.

The Phone Number is: 800-457-7777 or 949-462-6000
