Re: engineers version XP pro

You can either restore the system with the recovery CD (back to ME, yuck!) or you can obtain a legal copy of XP and reinstall.

Satellite A20 Model no PSA20C-OCO4D Serial No. 24078620P I just have the laptop no wires or plugs. My brother passed away and it probably is locked. Is there a chance I could use it still. Especially...

First Option:
You would need the AC Adapter (power cord) if you don't have one.

The output Voltage for the AC Adapter lists 15V

Check for a sticker on the bottom of the laptop for the input voltage. Should match the AC Adapter voltage i listed above, 15V.

You can order from Toshiba but just a knock off Adapter will do.

If it's locked you can change passwords with boot disks. Kinda depends on the OS though. Gets kind of complicated. Don't do it with XP Home. Works on XP Pro


Second Option:
If you just care about the files on it then you could take the hard drive out

Then buy this:

You hook the drive up to one end of it. Plug the usb cable on the other end into another computer and it shows up as a whole new drive letter where you can access the files from. Super easy

I would suggest the second option

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!

  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          My comp crushed the windows xp professional and on reinstalling the recovery version on the toshiba SATELLITE L3000 the sound device was not there.

          YOu need to locate your devices TRUE model. Look on your product label on bottom of laptop. There are various models of the L3000 series. Once you have the proper model number (looks like L3000-502I etc) Go to website. Go to DOWNLOADS tab, choose LAPTOP in first box, Choose SATELLITE on next one, and in third box scroll to your actual model number (the real one) and then download the SOUND drivers for your device. This should fix it. Also, you need to be sure and download teh proper version for Windows XP.. dont get the Windows 7 version. I would also make sure that XP is updated to the current SP3 version. To do this go to and run Microsoft Update.
