SOURCE: cannot format hard drive

Memory is most likely not bad and Toshiba has a pretty good quality control on their laptops. Format it with the XP CD using the compatible but classic FAT 32 format then try installing 98 again. Possible that Win 98 doesn't know how to read that new of memory right in the format part of the installer. If it has a SATA hard drive, you might run into some trouble with SATA support when formatting down the road.

SOURCE: Internal Hard Disk Upgrade

Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).

SOURCE: My usb ports do not recognize my zip drives. They


thanks for the clarification.

If the Ipod, which is essential a flash drive, works direct to the USB but the flash drive doesn't it's actually more likely that the flash drive has failed than any of the other possibilities. So, that being said, the next step is to plug the flash drive into a different computer and see if it works there. If it does let me know as there may be a driver problem on your computer, if it doesn't the flash drive has likely failed. If it has failed and there is nothing crucial on it, buy a new one they're inexpensive, if there is crucial data on it let me know and I will get you the contact info for a data recovery facility in your region(need to know your regoin as well). Regions being, North America, South America, Europe, etc.

Try this next step and let me know whether it works and I can advise you either way,

Blue screen-Toshiba A135-S4427

the ram memory must be sufficient about 2GB & the processor must be dual core or core 2 duo.

I upgraded my memory per Toshiba's website - installed the memory and the system will boot up, but then the screen goes blank - you can see the cursor, but nothing - I removed the memory and put back in...

when makes changes on memory ...always reinstall .and first go to bios and restore factory defaults ...optimal factory defaults ...
this will do to recognize the new modules ...and installing will aware the system about the changes..
