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.

Hello, What cable or adaptor do I need to transfer all data from the hard disk of my Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 to my new laptop via USB port? Thanks.

You won't be able to transfer hard drive data by plugging one computer into another via USB. In order to transfer data, you will need to remove the hard drive from the Toshiba Satellite Pro, use an external hard drive enclosure, and attach that to your new computer with any USB cable.
The hard drive can be taken out by removing screws on the bottom of your laptop. The drive can be found in the bottom left of this picture:
Here is an example of the exclosure you would need:

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
