    Do you mean within Windows an external hard drive cannot be detected, or Windows will not boot because the internal hard drive cannot be found?

My Toshiba A50 won't start. Just gives a choice between running windows normally and repairing (recommended) on the ground that it either didn't turn off correctly due to power cut or has some


Try going into safemode
After you see the Toshiba logo disappear. Press and hold the F8 button.

You should get a choice. Choose Safemode. If it loads try doing a system restore.

Unfortunately, if it does not load, then your Windows OS is too corrupted and needs to be re-installed. You will need the original disc that came with your laptop to do this.

My Toshiba mk4058gsx HDD is not detecting


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

My portable hardisk toshiba 250giga 2.0 have problem,when i connect it to my computer it is not detected, so i try to connect it to my laptop my laptop is dual core,pls send the solution about this.


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
make sure the lead/s that attach to this drive have a secure seating and are not bad/faulty the light on only tells that its getting power it might not be getting enough power you might test the lead/s or
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps

I have a Toshiba 51h83. Everything works fine except there is an issue where the colors are slightly lighter on both the left and right sides of the screen.


this is normal with rear projection tv's its from long usage when the tv isnt always in full screen mode. you can sometimes fix this by replacing the bulb/ or the color board for the projector. also you can replace the screen as it seems like it may also be do to image burn in if it wasnt always in full screen mode. (did this for my uncles Mitsubishi projection tv)

let me know if that helps!

How to install windows XP on my toshiba satellite A40, my bios not detect others device like my external dvd portable, cause everytime i instal with cd rom on my notebook always show 'blue screen error' or...


I'm not familiar with that specific model, but if you install from cd and get blue screens and the hard drive is not always detected, this means the hard drive is failing. You will have the same problem if you do manage to get the external cd/dvd drive to detect.

If the A40 is new enough to use a SATA hard drive (I do not think it is) then you need an XP cd with SP2 or 3 included or you will get bluescreens. But the fact that you can't get other OS to install make this an unlikely suspect.

The cd drive could be bad and not copying all the files correctly, but since you say the hard drive sometimes will not detect makes it almost certain that the hdd is the main issue.

Replacing a broken hard drive


Nope, the C series pre-dates SATA and there is no room for an adaper in the drive bay. Latitudes started supporting SATA in the later D series models. (My D600 was PATA but my D620 is SATA).

There are still plenty of PATA drives available. I recommend finding one with 7200RPM made by Seagate, Western Digital or Toshiba if you can. Hitachi and IBM have always burnt me.

You can always look up your Service Tag at support.dell.com for more details on your system.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Buit in lan card not detected


You will need to find the drivers for the lan card. They would normally be on the mother board cd if you have one.
