Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 says "D drive is low on memory"

"My Computer" shows both a "C" and "D" drive. "C" drive is 15g's and I have formatted so it is basically empty. "D" drive is 4g's and shows all but full. I have tried deleting everything that the computer will let me to free up space but everytime you use the computer it loses memory. Is the only drive in the laptop located on the back cover and then partitioned for 2 drives labels? This is my first go around with working on a laptop but have worked on desktop units. Thought they would be similar but maybe not. Yes ... I have done a clean-up and a defrag although the computer tells me that there is not enough room to do a defrag because "D" is full. Is there a way to copy "D" to "C" and just run the operating from the "C" drive?

The laptop contains only disk drive, no room for a 2nd drive. You have a 20Gb hard drive and it is partitioned as 2 drives.
You may be able to Ghost the D drive and put the disk image on the C drive, but it may work and boot up on the C drive..
Setting up a laptop is no different in setting up a desktop computer except a little bit more work is involved in installing the device drivers. The device drivers are specific for the version of Windows just like a desktop, but you need to download the drivers specific to your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site
Normally you would install the Windows operating system on the C drive together with the programs etc. and the D drive to hold your data files.
If you have installed Windows operating system on the D drive and the laptop bootup OK and you don't want to reinstall Windows on the C drive, then I would put the Swap Page file on the C drive. This should free up enought diskspace on the D drive to do a Disk Cleanup and a Defrag. I would also move your data files from the D drive to the C drive to give you more space on the D drive.
If it was me, I would re-install Windows on the C drive, together with the drivers and programs etc.

Just put the Recovery Disk in the drive and the system should start booting from it. If not, pay close attention to the screen and when it shows you which key to hit to change the boot order or boot sequence hit it. Change the boot sequence to read from the CD drive. This is a temporary change on the boot sequence.

If you want to make a permanent change to the boot order or boot sequence you will need to hit the key that says enter Bios or System Setup and change it there.

Hello, is there any difference between various Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 motherboards? Would it be hazardous to buy one of those old models to replace another (unfortunately dead) Mb? (got a PIII750...


They are the same.
The Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 is a model series.

Hazardous? In what way? Solder joints containing lead?

I don't have an exact Service Manual to give to you. But if you look through these, you should be able to find enough information to disassemble your laptop.

Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 Says D Drive is Out Of Memory


One can only venture a guess on this one: your hard drive is partitioned into C: and D:. Physically, there's only one drive, but it might have been split into 2 separate partitions. I'd go from there.
