You do not clean any hard drive,ever,they are sealed and very sensitive,just opening the sealed case will viod any warranty,and the drive will be ruined,if opened for even a minuite and re assembled would allow enough dust particles inside to cause major problems,now if you mean running a disc cleanup utility program on the computer to remove unecessary files thats dirrerent,xp or vista should be the same,click start find the my computer icon,click on it,look for your main hard disk drive,usually labeled C/drive right click on it scroll down to properties click and on the next screen you should see the properties for your main drive and down in the lower right corner should be a button that says disk cleanup,click on it,it may take a minuite or two,depending how much stuff is on it,but when it pops up with the list of files to be cleaned ,check every box no need to view files ,everything that you see can be safely removed,your computer will run fine and no personal files or programs are affected,its all garbage,hope this helps you,aloha from maui todd0708

I got an old laptop and I bought a new toshiba laptop I just wanna ask how do I transfer my application and files from my old laptop to a new one using external hardrive,also wat external hardrive,and also...


Hi,
You can transfer the data files only from the old laptop to the new one. You cannot transfer the installed applications/software. Software are required to installed again on the new laptop afresh.
To transfer the data you can use external portable hard disk, which can be connected to the PC using any USB port (just like pen drive) and you can copy - paste the required data to the external disk just like you copy data from one partition to another. After copying the required data, you can connect the external drive to new laptop and copy the data to the new laptop. You can use external drive of any brand/ capacity. However, it is better to have an external drive with larger capacity, so that you can transfer the data in one go.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a toshiba laptop I need reset without the recovery disk. Tech support said they could do it over the phone.. But I needed a credit card and I don't have one to use right now. Can someone please...


Let us ignore the bait and concentrate on recovering your laptop.

The recovery partition is still on the hard drive, use it to restaure the system:
Turn the computer off.
Press 0 and turn laptop on while maintaining pressure on 0 key
Once you see Hardrive recovery Mode displayed release the 0 key
Follow instructions on screen.

The recovery partition is no longer available or is corrupted
If your laptop is relatively new you can ask Toshiba product support to put you in contact with the company that sells the Recovery CD. They will need the laptop's serial and model number. The recovery CDs cost about 45 $ + applicable taxes.

You do not have a credit card: Use CASH.
Go to a store that sells the OS you are interested in. Buy the software. Should you need drivers, go to the Toshiba support site for your country of residence and download all that is available on the site that pertains to your Model number and your OS.

When i try to formate the toshiba satellite L500-226 there hard disk cannot be found


Please check the hardrive under BIOS setup if it is detected. But if not, you have a defective hardrive and you need to replace it before installing the operating system.

I need Qosmio G25 AV513 Hard Drive replacement. Can you suggest source?


I would suggest getting your drive specs from t he company and then just ordering one from Egghead or Tigerdirect onlline.

If you want a local provider a Best Buy or a Microcenter would do.

Be sure to save all the mounting parts off the old drive! You will need them for the new one.

I replaced my hardrive and now there is no sound. UNder the control panel under sound/audio it reads no audio device


Sometimes the drivers aren't automatically updated or loaded when you install new hard drives. What I suggest is you download the sound drivers again for you Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 laptop. Click here for the link to download site. All you have to do is enter your Operating System ( e.g. Windows 7, Vista, XP ) and you will click on the sound driver and download it.
Hope this helps and thank you for choosing FixYa.com

I need the hardrive drivers mk1637gsx 160 HD SATA


Theres no such thing as Hard Drive Drivers

Restore disks are created to only work with the default hard drive that came with the laptop. Even if you bought an exact replacement it still wouldnt work as the restore discs looks for the unique serial number of the hard drive and therefore prevents people from using the recovery discs on other toshiba systems or non toshiba systems.

Id suggest borrowing another windows installation disc and using the key on the certificate of authencity on the bottom f the laptop to activate.You might have to ring microsoft to activate it but just explain whats happened and it should all go ok.
