Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S211 Notebook

1 Answer

Satellite laptop hard drive crashed

My hard drive crashed. It is a HDD2188 80 GB internal drive (8MB buffer, ATA interface). Apparently it is discontinued. I would like to upgrade to more memory but want to make sure the new drive will work with the consisting config. Is there anything that would be compatible? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I need a driver for my hdd


You do not need a driver for hard drive, the drivers are used for I/O interfaces of the motherboard, all modern OS have generic hard drive interface drivers .

Yes, either of these drives will work. The cache is not all that important it is just where data is stored temporarily in case you have to access it again soon after a file is written to the hard drive. The best thing you could do in this case is see if your motherboard has a sata connection which I would assume it does and buy a sata hard drive. It will be much faster than either of those drives, just make sure you also get a sata power adapter if your power supply doesn't already have one and a sata cable.

Click link and choose the rpm and size that you want.You can swap it out yourself and apply a fresh Operating System. If you've never installed a OS, or you don't have a genuine copy of your OS, you may need to take it to a computer repair store.

What is the max hdd capacity I can install in a HP ZD8000 laptop?


Your computer uses ATA drives which topped out around 250MB simply because manufactures switched over to SATA drives. It is a pain to change out disks on laptops since you can only have one internal drive. You then have to reload everything.
Here is one I found: Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVE 250GB 5400 RPM 2.5" ATA-6 Internal Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive
  • 250GB
  • 5400 RPM 8MB Cache
  • ATA-6

I'd consider one of the external USB disks instead to store your data, pictures, etc. You could then put it on your desktop or on a new notebook.

Internal Hard Disk Upgrade


Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).
