My Toshiba Satellite 2805 S301 USB 1 port, does not recognize my Passport external Hard disk drive. What can I do to solve this problem ? Thank you, very much for your assistance.


Hi

assuming that the external hard disk is usb

i would try this

plug in the external hard drive
then go to device manager
then hover your mouse at the top of the box
and look for a icon that says scan for new hardware
then hit the scan icon
your laptop may or maynot recognize the external hard drive at this stage
now leaving it plugged in restart the laptop
and with any luck windows will now recognize it


good luck
hope you get sorted with it

LAN CARD DRIVER FOR TOSHIBA SATELLITE 2805-S202.


Assuming you're talking about the mini-PCI Intel 10/100 Ethernet card that's built in, Toshiba's support site only has the drivers for Win98SE:

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=1073810429&rpn=PS280U&modelFilter=&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663.

This driver can also be used for Windows 98 and ME.

Now, if you're running Windows 2000, you can use the LAN card driver for Windows 2000 under model # 2805-S201. It will work 100%.

If you're running XP, you don't need to install a driver as it is automatic.

Computer will not read floppy disk


You have a bad floppy drive. In this system you almost have to gut it to replace the floppy drive, although used floppy drives should be pretty cheap on eBay. If this is a one-time thing, a USB floppy drive should do the job just as well.

Recovery/Backup Disks


Hello brownxc

It is unlikely that Toshiba will be able to provide you w/ the recovery CD(s) for your computer. If you don't have the recovery CD(s), you can install the OS (operating system) using an OEM Windows ME CD.

You'll need your product key code. Check the bottom of your laptop for a COA (certificate of authenticity) sticker with the product key code for the operating system (if it is currently not bootable). If your system is still bootable, the product key code can be retrieved from the system registry. (We can help you w/ that.)

The downside of not using the Toshiba recovery CD(s) is you won't get the bundled software back. (Software that came pre-installed w/ your computer.) If you use a Windows ME OEM (original equipment manufacturer) CD, you'll only get the OS. So, you'll need to acquire the installations CDs for your applications, etc.

You should be able to download all the drivers, etc. that you'll need for your laptop from Toshiba's web site. Do this b-e-f-o-r-e you begin the recovery or OS installation process so that, as you're prompted for drivers during the course of the installation, you'll be able to provide them at the time.

Please, let us know if we can be of any more assistance.

Good Luck!
