Re: replace hdd on my laptop

First, make sure that you can do this task. Acquire the proper tools and software and disassemble the unit, making Sure that you know where all those parts go. Unplug and remove the drive and install your new one. Put it all back and power up. You're now ready to install that software that I mentioned earlier. Your BIOS should allow the new drive to be recognized and will now let you install your software. Good luck with this....accordianman

How to unlock toshiba satellite laptop BIOS and HDD

If you are the original owner Toshiba will reset the bios for a fee and it is not cheap, they may include the HDD reset, if not! type password, or hard drive password. I would check bios password, probably a lot cheaper if you can find the right seller, also check some software may be free.

What hard drive do i need for toshiba L300


Welcome to FixYa!

Are you trying to replace the hard drive of your laptop?

If yes, According to the notebook specification you need SATA HDD and it can be upgraded up to 500 GB.

HDD is placed at the bottom side under HDD cover. HDD cover is secured with two screws. Remove the screws and then HDD cover. Please do this gently. After doing this, remove the HDD pack by pulling on the tab attached to the pack, following the direction of the arrows. Please refer to the service manual if you are having a problem replacing the hard drive.

After you replace the Hard Drive, use the recovery DVD to install the operating system.

Hope that helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Please enter HDD1/SSD1 User password

If you get prompted for the HDD password when turning on the computer, and you do not know it you will need to call Toshiba support. Circumventing an HDD password is not an easy task.
Also there where Toshiba laptops, model 6100, that when the user was suddenly prompted for the HDD password Toshiba replaced the HDD under warranty.

You bought a new hdd drive that seems working good, Hdd (Hardisk Drive) is connected to a port that is also connected to the motherboard, in this case that port is no longer stable possible cause of the accident, you need to replace that port to fix or to identify the problem. This hardware device is really sensitive thing, you need a personal technician to troubleshoot the problem if you're not familiar with this device
