What program fixes hard drives that is no longer readable?

I just purchased this Toshiba satellite from a second party. I had it for awhile, and I go to turn it on a couple of days ago and I have been trying to figure out - "Why". The laptop starts, a blue window appear and it says: " Enter HDD / SDD password:". I have a Toshiba Satellite C655-S5132. Is there anyway that I could somehow install a special program to bypass the security password that is preventing itself in loading windows? Perhaps make a boot able USB that will let me format the hard drive and reload windows and drivers...??

You might be able to short out a jumper on the motherboard to clear the cmos memory

however make sure you are earthed via a wire to earth when removing the memory to avoid blowing memory up from static discharge. (not shown in the video)

SOURCE: how do i format the seagate 5400 160 gig hard drive?

Configuring the BIOS
After completing the drive installation, restart your computer. Your computer
may automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not
automatically detect your new drive, follow the steps below.
1. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the system
setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually
done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 during
the startup process.
2. Within the system setup program, instruct the system to auto detect
your new drive.
3. Save the settings and exit the setup program.
When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive.

Toshiba satellite notebook error 10-FC06-000D system windows vista


When dealing with this error (10-FC06-000D) message in Toshiba unit is very comment in the L300 series, I don't know if Toshiba is using cheaper hard drives or what but I see a lot of them with the same problem. If you have a Toshiba unit got to their website to check if your unit is still under manufacture warranty if it is you have some options send it to Toshiba direct they should cover the shipping but I'm not to sure, or take it in to any Best Buy or Future shop stores with your proof of purchase and they will send it out for you. This is a hardware problem that is related to the hard drive, I wiped the hard drive and all it's boot records still unable to reinstall the OS OK, I finally decided to use a test hard drive to reinstall the OS worked fine so there is something wrong with the hard drive that most likely would need to be replaced

Installed vista on toshiba laptop. downloaded recovery disk from identical laptop. can't recover original laptop data


There's a couple options.
You can purchase acronis and do a full Drive backup to another hard drive, then restore to the new one.
If you just need data, no programs, you can purchase a 2.5" USB to SATA enclosure for $9, take out the other computer's drive, pop it in the adaptor, plug it into the new computer and simply copy the data.

I purchased the Toshiba A665-S6086 approx 1 month ago. The battery on the computer seems very loose. Should it have "give" in it or should it be more stable? Also, the sound vibrates when you...


- The battery should fit snuggly. Have that checked.
- As for the sound problem, most likely, you have the "Hard drive protection utility" installed and enabled.

When you move the laptop, the hard drive protection kicks in and the read/write heads go into park position freezing the laptop for a fracture of second. Apparenlty this causing the sound to statter.

You can disable the hard drive protection for a while and see if it fixes the problem.

Also, try reducing the movement detection sensetivity in the hard drive protection utility.

What type of hard drive do i purchase for my toshiba satellite A135-S4656? when i start up my laptop it says replace the hard drive. But I'm not sure what model to replace it with? Can you help me out? ...


160GB SATA 2.5 inch. You can go larger (320-500GB).

You do realize that after replacing the hard drive, all of your data and windows operating system will be on the old disk.

Does the toshiba satellite a135 s2276 accomodate a second hard drive?


You won't find internal room to place a second hard drive, if that's what you're asking. Most laptops simply do not have the internal space, especially thin-line units.

What you could do for extra storage space is purchase an external drive.

A70 hard drive crashed ,cdrom is not readable to recover


From your description of the issue, the most likely senario is a hard drive failure. Replacement hard drives run $50 to 100 or so and are generally fairly easy to change

Toshiba Satellite L30 System Unit


from the user's manual of toshiba PSL30L -00M00D (i'm using the exact same one):

Restoring the preinstalled software from the
Recovery HDD (Depends on the model you
purchased.)
About 2.5 GB of hard disk space is reserved for the recovery partition.
When re-setting up your hard disk, do not change, delete or add partitions
in a manner other than specified in the manual. Otherwise, space for
software may be destroyed.
In addition, if you use a third-party partitioning program to reconfigure
partitions on your hard disk, it may become impossible to re-setup your
computer.
1. Turn off your computer.
2. Hold down the 0 (zero) key on the keyboard and turn on your computer.
When “In Touch with Tomorrow TOSHIBA” appears, release the 0
(zero) key on the keyboard.
3. A menu appears. Follow the on-screen instructions.
