Toshiba laptop will not go psat the toshiba logo


There are a number of stages to go through. For all these please ensure that the laptop is switched off. First, remove the battery, then plug the mains charger lead in and try to boot, if you get past the splash screen than it is the battery at fault, if not then the next step is to switch the laptop off close the lid and turn it over, on the bottom you should see an access door with either one or two screws, open this access panel up and remove the hard drive, turn the laptop back over and try to boot up again, it should go past the splash screen and the detect that there is no hard drive installed, if it dose not get past the splash screen then turn the laptop back over re install the hard drive, try again to boot up, if still no good then try removing one of the memory chips, these are found under the same access panel. Try again if still no go then remove the other memory chip and replace the first one you took out. If no joy after all these steps, then sorry I have no further suggestions. Good luck.

How to Reset an HP Laptop BIOS Password


Reset the password on any HP laptop.

Reset the BIOS password on an HP laptop computer when it has been forgotten or when preparing the laptop for sale to a new owner. Learn how to erase an unknown BIOS password by physically disconnecting the internal batteries. Avoid spending hundreds of dollars at a service center to make changes that can often be performed at home by anyone with the ability to take an HP laptop apart and put it back together again.

Items you will need

  • Small screwdriver set
  • Flashlight
Step 1

Power down the computer if necessary by holding the power button down for six seconds until the power shuts off.
Step 2

Disconnect the power cord from the HP laptop computer. Remove the battery by flipping the computer over onto its cover and releasing the battery clips as indicated by the illustrations on the bottom of the laptop or in the owner's manual. Lift the edge of the battery nearest the clips up first, then pull the battery out of the laptop.
Step 3

Remove the screws that hold the hard drive cover in place and remove the cover. Take the hard drive out of the laptop by removing the two retaining screws and pulling the drive gently away from the connector, then lifting the hard drive bracket or tray out of the computer.
Step 4

Remove the screws that hold the memory compartment cover in place, then remove the cover. Remove the memory modules from the sockets by spreading the metal retaining clips gently apart and allowing the module to spring upward. Pull the memory straight out of the socket at the angle it rests at when sprung from the retaining clips.
Step 5

Remove the Real Time Clock (RTC) coin cell battery from the memory compartment by pressing the retaining clip and pulling the coin cell battery out of the socket.
Step 6

Allow the computer to sit without the battery for an hour, then reinstall the memory and hard drive, but leave the coin cell battery and the main battery out of the system. Connect the AC power adapter to the system and power it on to clear the BIOS password.
Step 7

Power the system back down and remove the power cord to reinstall the coin cell battery and main battery.

hope this helps

How to set a toshiba hard drive to slave?


Power off the Toshiba laptop. Remove the power cord and the battery.

Turn the laptop upside down and remove the panel where the hard drive goes with a screwdriver.

Depending on the model of Toshiba laptop being worked on, this may include the entire bottom panel, a panel covering both hard drive slots or a panel covering the empty second slave hard drive slot.

Install the second hard drive by inserting it into the open slot.

Replace the opened cover.

Replace the battery and power cord.

Turn on the computer.

The second hard drive is automatically configured as the slave drive.

Depending on the operating system and previous status of the slave hard drive, it may need to be partitioned or formatted before being used by the operating system.


hope this helps

I need to remove the keyboard to fit new memory how do i do this please


You do not remove the keyboard in order to fit your memory (Ram). You have to unscrew the bottom panel of your Laptop. Some laptops come with a section where you open at the bottom so that you can have easy access to fitting in memory. There is usually two panels at the bottom one for the Hard drive and the other for the memory. if you do not have this you then have to unscrew the whole bottom to get to the motherboard and then the memory itself.

How to remove hardrive from ml3109


Turn the laptop so the bottom is facing up. Make sure you have powered the laptop off and have unplugged the AC adapter and battery. Near the part labeled E there are two small phillips screws. You would need to remove those and the tray at location E will pull out with the hard drive attached. There will be 4 screws(two on each side) holding the hard drive onto the tray, remove those and the hard drive can now be taken out. Reverse the steps using the new hard drive.

How to open and change RAM memory and hard drive on Gateway Netbook model number LT2704u?


This netbook is really the Acer Aspire One D255. You have to pop off the keyboard, then remove 4 screws that hold the back panel in place, which will allow you to remove that back panel in order to get to the memory.

I need to install a new hard drive .. how do I do


Hello,

  1. urn the laptop over. Position your laptop in the direction so that the Toshiba label, on the bottom of the hard panel, is facing you. Your Toshiba label is positioned correctly if it is positioned on the upper-left side of the external hard panel. Remove the battery pack from the bottom your Toshiba laptop to be sure it is powered off.
  2. Step 2 Remove your laptop's external hard panel. This panel is the external plastic layer on the back of your computer to cover and protect your computer's most important hardware components. The screws you need to remove are located on the four outermost corners of the bottom of your laptop. Follow the chart guide listed in Tips for screw and screw driver compatibility and removal. Distance your screws from your workstation to avoid mixing them up and/or losing them.
  3. Step 3 Locate your hard drive panel drawer door when you have totally removed the external hard panel. It is located where the smaller door in the bottom-right panel was before your removed the external hard panel. Your hard drive will be locked into this specific drawer door and the computer itself. Completely unlock the hard drive and remove the drawer from your laptop.
  4. Step 4 Remove the entire hard drive from the drawer door. Hold the hard drive on all sides to ensure that you do not drop it. Place the removed hard drive in an enclosure area to avoid damage of any kind.
Place the new hard drive in and put it back up.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks.

Cant find hard drive location


It is common that the hard drives on laptops are kept beneath where your palms rest when typing. either to the right or left of the mouse. To access it you will have to turn the laptop upside down and remove all the screws you can see...(hint take all panels for memory etc on the bottom off and the battery out as some screws are hidden there) Then flip the laptop back over and very carefully remove the top of the shell (moldeing around the keyboard, mouse, etc) If you lucky one of the panels on the bottom provide an easy access to the hard drive but this is rare and usually in HPs

Disassembly


You didn't explain why you are taking it apart, but the two main reasons are Hard Disk drive Replacement
& memory (RAM) Replacement
The chassis of the computer is built sort of like the frame of a car
so I will detail how to do the two operations below

Hard Disk drive for 7510GX Laptop:

  1. Back up any data you want to transfer to the new hard drive.
  2. Before beginning, review electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions.
  3. Shut down the computer, and then disconnect the power adapter.
  4. Disconnect the modem and network cables.
  5. Turn the computer over, and then remove the battery.

  8. If your new hard drive already includes the hard drive kit bracket, go to step 13. – OR –

Adding or Replacing Memory Modules

  7. Hold the new or replacement module at a 30-degree angle and press it into the empty memory slot. This module is keyed so that it can only be inserted in one direction. If the module does not fit, verify that the notch in the module lines up with the tab in the memory bay.

  8. Gently push down on the SO-DIMM and make sure that the two clips on each side of the SO–DIMM click into place.
