The purpose of S.M.A.R.T. is to warn a user or system administrator of impending drive failure while there is still time to take preventative action, such as copying the data to a replacement device. Approximately 64% of failures can be predicted by S.M.A.R.T.[2] Work at Google on over 100,000 drives has shown little overall predictive value of S.M.A.R.T. status as a whole, but suggests that certain sub-categories of information which some S.M.A.R.T. implementations track do correlate with actual failure rates – specifically, in the 60 days following the first scan error on a drive, the drive is, on average. If you can not get the comp to boot, you may need to replace hard drive and reinstall OS and software.

BIOS password reset on a Toshiba Satellite P300 - 194


I guess I need to remove the CMOS battery to be able to reset the BIOS of the Toshiba Satellite P300 - 194.

My problem is that I cannot access the battery. Where is it located?

Is there any backward password I can use for that model?

Please help!

Thank you!

Toshiba p300 -1a8 asking for "BIOS"


You need to reset the contents of the flash eeprom that stores values like the password, serial number, MAC address and OEM numbers. This can often be acheived by removing and replacing the CMOS battery, which is (usually) located on the motherboard. You may have to disassemble the laptop to get at it.

I wiped clean my toshiba satellite pro p300 and tried to load operating system ,screen say's press enter to continue loading, when i press enter screen shows cannot find hard drive etc etc can anyone...


If you insert your Vista or Win7 disc into the DVD drive and boot form that, make sure that the BIOS is set to recognise the hard disc. The OS disc will do the rest. If it cannot find the hard disc, maybe the hard disc is faulty.
When you are successful, go to toshiba.com and download the latest drivers and firmware for the BIOS.
Hope that helps.

When turning on my Toshiba Satellite Pro P300 it stays on the Please Wait screen for over 10 minutes. Whats wrong and how can I fix it?


Does it ever go past that point? If not try reloading your Operating System using the F12 boot with the DVD and Restore disk in drive. It is NOT supposed to do what yours is doing, as you noticed. Reinstalling the OS will fix your problem.
