    The hard drive on this model is in a box.No air can get to it at all so when the motherboard gets hot it radiates that heat toward the drive and in turn heats it up.I have taken the drive out of the laptop and have run it out side of the case.It doesn't get hot at all.I bought a temperature gun to check the temp to see what was getting hot inside the laptop.The board directly above the drive was getting so hot the drive temp just kept rising above 45 and the PC would not run correctly.The fan for the CPU works so it is not the fan.The board gets hot and there is no reason for it to get that hot.I have checked around and that type of laptop gets hot.For whatever reason.I was wondering if a new motherboard would do the same thing if so there would be no need to get a new one.But there seems to be no direct answer to this problem that I can find.I was thinking of insulating the drive from the board,or the board from the drive just in the little section that gets hot above it to see if that would help.

Sounds like you are having a air circulation problem. Check and make sure the processor fan is operating. If not replace that or just get a laptop cooler. I have one and it keeps mine nice and cool, but I have a gaming rig and I have to keep it low cool. Hope this works.

    Thanks for the help but that model I found out over heats.It's a flaw in the board.No amount of cooling helps.

How can i full recovery of my pc


You have a bad hard drive...probably. I hope it's a bad hard drive, the other possibility is a mobo and that's a whole lot pricier. Order this drive and swap it out with your current one. I can't be 100% sure, but in every laptop that I've seen with a write sector failure on reload, it results from a bad hd.

get this one.

Hard drive crashed


Nope, it's just a matter of pulling the old hard drive and putting in the new one. Sometimes there will be an adapter attached to your old drive that you'll have to transfer over to the new one. What you need is a 2.5" mobile PATA (IDE) drive.

Reformat and Reinstall XP, this would
clear whatever data is on the laptop. Or do an XP repair.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Toshiba satellite a15-s129 boots then lots of error screens show.


If you are referring to drive read errors when you attempt to open ANYTHING ("please restart program").. i installed a newer version of xp, windows7, and everything works fine now. this was not my laptop, so naturally i didnt care about wiping the HD. but the reason i was given this laptop was most likely the same problem you have, and now i have a brand new laptop, heh.
