Go into SETUPand see how the drive is configured. If the detection is set to AUTO and showing incorrectly, manually set the Cylinders, Heads, Sectors and LBA. The information should be on the label on the HDD. Exit and save the changes. The size of the driver should be correct when the OS starts.

Good luck and please let me know how it works out for you.

I have increased RAM from 2 to 4GB and installed Widows 7 64 bit. Computer properties show RAM 4GB 2.75GB usable. 1282MB reserved. How do I make more RAM usable?


It's the shared memory for the Integrated graphics card, your RAM shares memory to the graphics card, and you are using a lot. If you want more memory, enter BIOS and there should be something about shared memory, and put it at 256 MB or so.

Installed new WD HDD (160Gb) into Toshiba Satellite A10-S167. Entered BIOS edit, but can't get laptop to recognize the new HDD (which replaced a smaller, failed HDD)


Shouldn't have any problems on the A10 series working with a 160GB drive, so long as it's an ATA/IDE type with a 44-pin connector. If it's not recognizing the drive, could it be that the pins were not precisely lined-up with the IDE connector? I'd remove the drive, make sure the pins are still all straight, reinsert it into the HDD compartment and see if it makes a difference.

I recover the operating system with hp recovery system, but once completed and restart the netbook, my hp mini 2140 never managed to come in and just boot windows back and forth. then I did the hard disk...


Go into the BIOS by pressing f10 when powering on the laptop.

Go to System Configuration and choose Device Configuration

Scroll down to SATA Native Mode and disable.

Press f10 to save configuration. The computer should reboot and press f9 to select boot device.

See if the 160GB hdd is now showing as an option. If it is then you are in luck.

p.s: You may need to update the BIOS to the latest if it still does not show up for you.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hard drive problem


I've been wrestling with tw IBM's with similar issues for the last three days, one of which wouldn't recognize the hard drive or the CD drive. I'm going to suggest flashing the bios, this worked on the ones I have. Here's a link to the bios download. I recommend that you use the one for creating a diskette. Try this and let me know.
