Question about Toshiba Satellite A65-S1065 Notebook
Will the Toshiba MK8026GAX hard drive work with a Toshiba A65-S1065 laptop. I searched and could not find a compatibility chart anywhere. Also if the computer keeps shutting down I think that there must be an overheat problem. The Toshiba website offers a solution but I want to know if you think it will work. There is a new BIOS download that is supposed to solve the problem. How do I load the bios without a hard drive do you think it will load from a thumb drive?
The hard drive should work fine thats a standard IDE drive.
For the overheating problem you probably just need to clean the fans with a can of compressed air. That series gets clogged pretty easily. Just blow from the bottom of the laptop where you see the fan towards the outlet in the rear.
You can boot from a USB floppy drive to do a bios upgrade - you can get USB floppies for $20 or so.
Or i have loaded a bios from a bootable CD (you can make one from Roxio or Sonic record now if you make a bootable floppy first - get one Here:
