Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

Need to replace the hard dik of my toshiba satellite A105....

And I understand you can do it yourself. I might have the money to buy the hard disk but not to pay a tech specialist.... I don't care much about the size because I have an external HD with a huge capacity. But I don't know exactly the specifications of the disk I need to buy... and I want to to make sure I can do it myself... can you help me?

I'm need to replace the hard drive without having a system disk.

Google "TOSHIBA RECOVERY AND APPLICATIONS/DRIVERS SATELLITE A100/A105 SERIES" to find the cd delivered with a TOSHIBA. the fourth entry shows what appears to be the real thing. On their webpage EDIT>FIND "A15" to locate the CD.

There may be others in the 355 Google pages listed.

On the original factory disk gives a TOSHIBA Phone number, 1-800-457-7777, for support. I think they sell the disk for @$40.

good luck.

go to Toshiba website and see tech specs/manual/put in ask IRIS block-replace hardrive, will ask for your make/model and a pic will be displayed explaining location--remember there is a disclaimer so check to see if under a warranty first, also you have the recovery CD handy, do a backup for crucial items you need.
