How big a hard drive can I put in this computer and how much more ram can I add


of the memory - this is toshiba i assume? you should mention manufacturer...

i think this particular model can accept up to 8gb sdram ddr2 memory (better check at shop where you will buy it - or consult toshiba website), now, changing hdd on laptop is easy, but i would rather suggest buying 500gb or 1tb external hdd.

if you wish to change your existing hdd - just purchase bigger, and install it - problem is that you will then need to re-load your operating system, all programs and all related junk on existing hdd - hence: buy 1tb external, copy - or better move all data (photos, documents, movies, favourite p 0rn... whatever you wish), to new hdd, when everything of value you have copied/moved, then either format old hdd and re-install the programs, or just use ccleaner (available at this site
http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
choose free version or purchase one if you wish), clean your computer, delete/uninstall programs which you did not access in last 6months, run registry cleaner (several times till you have no errors find message) and you will have again happy and workable computer.

hope this will help you with your decision, do not forget to vote...

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite L350D laptop which when booted up asks for a HDD password (which I do not remember setting at any point). As I understand it, the password is stored on the eeprom on the...


HDD passwords are designed to be 100% secure and there is nothing available to reset or remove the HDD password whether the password failure is caused by human error or HDD defect.
Users must ensure they have regular backups.Unfortunately,a new HDD will be required and is not covered by the standard warranty.

Hi

How to remove and unlock hard drive password? Is there any software to recover hard drive disk password? Where to download hard drive password cracker? Is it possible to reset the hard drive password?
According to manufacturers' website, if you forget your hard drive or hard disk password, there is no possible way to reset your password or recover data in the hard disk drive. Basically the hard drive is unusable. Scary right? However, this is often not true.
Most people are not aware that most hard disk drives have the ability to set a hardware password, just like the Bios password for motherboards, thus making the drive completely inaccessible unless a correct password is provided during the BIOS POST test. Usually these features can only be found in laptops, this is when you set a password on your notebook, the hard drive together with the motherboard becomes locked.
Most experts would say if you forget the original HDD or Bios password, there is no way of restoring it by generic system tools. Unlike the Bios password where there is a master key or with the removal of the bios battery, the password is erased from the flash memory thus the settings is restored to factory settings without the password, however, this does not applies to hard disk.

HDD Unlock Wizard is a user-friendly application which allows you to easily remove HDD password. IDE and SATA hard disk drives are supported. Both User and Master password can be removed. Please note that while unlocking, HDD Unlock Wizard will erase and re-certify the drive, meaning to say all data in the disk is lost and not recoverable. HDD Unlock Wizard incorporates proprietary unlocking algorithms which allow removing an unknown HDD password and making hard drive usable again. Download HDD Unlock Wizard now! 2.8MB only!

It may not be possible to recover the hard drive password or to unlock it; however, it is possible to remove the password together with the data, thus making your hard disk accessible and usable again.

Tried the same thing and got the same result using the motion computing DVD/CD external reader/burner.

Has anyone found an answer to this problem of trying to switch to a larger hard drive on the 1600 with format/installing? The new hard drive was not able to read the recovery disk with OS on it.
Thanks.

After using recovery disks for toshiba laptop satellite l305d i get error message 10-fa12-045d, please help??


Toshiba recovery error seem likely to be due to a failing/failed HDD. If your laptop is in warranty then visit Toshiba service center. Otherwise try this--------> I would like you to try checking the HDD with an error checking program from floppy or CD or with the drive removed from the laptop and tried in a USB external enclosure in another PC.

If the HDD itself is made by Toshiba (which seems likely) you would need a generic testing program since Toshiba don't provide their own HDD checking program.

HDTune can be used from another PC.

Trouble Reloading Start-Up Disk on Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301


Please try changing the HDD. If same thing happens the problem may be with ur O/s Cd or the Mother board
Please let me know this is used machine or New one. If new one please take a different O/S cd and install it.

If you are installing XP and your HDD is SATA then you need sata drivers.

Hdd password


What is HDD Password? All hard disk drives have the possibility to set a hardware password, thus making the drive completely inaccessible unless a correct password is provided during the BIOS POST test. When you set a password on your notebook, the drive becomes locked as well. XBox gaming consoles and some desktop computers can also lock hard disk drives. This is usually called "HDD password" or "ATA password".

If you forget the original HDD password, there is no way of restoring it by generic system tools. HDD Unlock Wizard incorporates proprietary unlocking algorithms which allow to remove an unknown HDD password and make hard drive usable again.

I have a software enable to reset the password security on your harddriver but you need to pay my professional charge. If sound interested please email diazphi@gmail.com.

Please rate me solved if you like my solution.


Best regards,


Philip

hi, If you set the hard drive password yourself and forgot it, you out of luck. I don?t know if you would be able to recover it. After a quick search on Google I found a utility called A-FF Repair Station. They support a lot of drives and license for 1 recovery will cost you about $50. I have never tried this software myself. If you didn?t set the hard drive password and the laptop still asking for it on start up, then I have a suggestion. Check the version of BIOS installed on your laptop. Three wil be some fix in the latest version like: ?Prevented the message asking for HDD password when there is a problem with the HDD?. In other words, if there is a problem with your hard drive, the laptop might ask you about the hard drive password even if you didn?t set it up. Go to Toshiba tech support website, update the BIOS on your laptop and see if you can bypass the HDD password message. According to the BIOS fix in v.1.50, the HDD password message might indicate that you have a bad hard drive. If after the BIOS update you can bypass the hard drive password message and access the data, I would recommend back it up as soon as possible. regards sreejith
