So you have a potential problem with the hard drive and a known problem with the optical drive. Replace the optical drive first: it's easy (one screw at the bottom, another one underneath the keyboard - these are the only 2 screws holding the optical drive in). You can buy a replacement drive, new or used, on eBay for $10 - $20 delivered. After that, you should be able to figure out if the hard drive's problems are OS related or HW failure. HDD's are cheap, too. This model uses 2.5" ATA IDE drive (30 or 40G or you can go larger), figure 50 cents to 75 cents per gigabyte, and you'll be okay. Just don't pay tourist prices for these things....

How can I connect my hard drive of my toshiba a15-s127 which wont power-up because of a corrupt/missing file, to my second computer to back it up ... and will it transfer any bugs that could be on that old...


You must remove the hard drive and get an external enclosure for it. Best Buy or Microcenter will be able to help you with finding the correct enclosure (You will want a 2.5" enclosure in either IDE or SATA. The hard drive will have the type printed on it to help you decide).

This can then be plugged into your new computer to transfer data. Bugs won't be transferred, but viruses could be if they infected your personal documents, but your virus scanner should be able to catch that.

OK it seems as though you have an IDE - USB dongle. What you need is a SATA - USB dongle. It appears that the drive you have is SATA, you will know this as there is only a small connector for tha Data and Power Plug. The IDE is a wide multi pinned socket with a large 4 pin Power Connector.
I have included a link to Ebay so you can see what you need. as in the USB to SATA dongle. http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=usb+-+sata&_sacat=0&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1313&_dmpt=PCC_Drives_Storage_Internal&_odkw=usb+-+memory+card&_osacat=0
You need to get one such as this to connect to your drive.

Hard drive crashed


Nope, it's just a matter of pulling the old hard drive and putting in the new one. Sometimes there will be an adapter attached to your old drive that you'll have to transfer over to the new one. What you need is a 2.5" mobile PATA (IDE) drive.
