Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Not even Microsoft is offering this service. But if you have a rescue disk, you can reinstall windows on your new hard disk and the code on your laptop, should be enough to activate the installed windows. This is, if you still use the same version, that came with your laptop.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

Windows Vista is still playing catch up with compatabilty of devices.
Makes you wonder why you left XP doesnt it? i do this for a living, and i will not touch Vista for a few years yet, while they work the bugs out.

I had a similar problem on SatPro6100. Mine was LSSSLSSL (10010001).
Thinking that the laptop was buggered I decided I would take it apart and have a look at the insides.
Whilst it was apart I also disconnected the BIOS battery.
Couldn't find anything that looked like it had burnt out so put it all back together again.
When I turned it on again the darn thing was working fine!!!
The whole thing was apart for about 2 hours or so.
I don't know if it was removing the main battery and leaving it out for that time or whether it was resetting the BIOS (by disconnecting its battery) that fixed the problem.
Anyway, I have managed to get all my data off the laptop so not too worried if it screws up again.
I do however always disconnect the power source BEFORE shutting down the laptop and only reconnect it after I have pressed the on button. Seems to be working fine (for now!)
Hope that helps someone out there!

I have a disk that worked for me and I am running windows xp. I also have the website address that is supposed to have the 98 drivers which could work perhaps. http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=Maxtor_OneTouch_Drive_USB/Win98SE_Driver&vgnextoid=b07d8b9c4a8ff010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD
Guess you could try them first and if that doesnt work I could perhaps make a backup of the disk/package/mail/ worth anything?

READ THIS ALL THE WAY THROUGH. REMOVE THE BATTERY AND POWER BEFORE ANY WORK IS DONE. HAVE ALREADY BACKED UP ALL YOUR DATA.
Toshiba Support Site warns not to try this at home.
User's Manual does not list HD removal.
That being said.....
this is the instructions for a P15-S479, but may be what you need.
The hard drive is located under the CD/DVD drive. Before you start taking apart the laptop, remove the battery and unplug the AC power.
1. You have to remove the CD/DVD drive. Turn the laptop over. Remove one screw right above the dive and slide the drive out of the laptop.
2. When the CD/DVD drive is removed, you’ll see a metal plate. The metal plate is secured by 4 screws. Remove them and lift up the plate from the bay. The hard drive is located right under the plate.
3. After you remove the plate, you’ll see the hard drive. The hard drive also secured by 4 screws. Remove the screws, slide the hard dire to disconnect it from the connector on the moterboard and lift it up.
4. You have to transfer the brackets from the old hard drive to a new hard drive. Also, if there is a foil shielding around the old hard drive, you’ll have to transfer it to a new hard drive too.
Here’s a disassembly guide with pictures: Toshiba Satellite P10/P15 laptops. How to remove the hard drive.
Remember the precautions and warranty information from Toshiba before you start. Try to have someone who is really into laptops before you begin
ps: Other laptops have their HD's under the keyboard, or in a removable door on the bottom.
Remember the precautions and warranty information from Toshiba before you
