Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Michael from Omie Micheal you gave me a link to problem with very slow Toshiba laptop. One of the suggestions was to buy a new disk & proceed as directions below: +++ BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO CLONE OLD ONE NOR DO I KNOW HOW TO UPGRADE TO THE 7200PM +++++++ This was the second answer at " Wiki Answers" ---------------------------------------------------- The real reason why a computer dramatically slows down is because "its hard drive begins to die." " Buy a new disk, clone your old one onto it, and enjoy your "new" laptop again. If you are upgrading, you might as well upgrade to a 7200RPM disk. The laptop will be faster than new" :)

    I went to both links you provided. I haven't learned about "innerds" of my laptop. But I can learn. DON'T TELL ANYONE . . . but I don't know where the hard drive is located? I don't want to sound like a newbie but . . . :o)



    I presume (not assume as that would make an *** out of me and you) that it will be on a disk that I download into the "innerds". Or ?

Did anyone notice Michael, standing guard with Enzo at the hospital (TGF1), lighting Enzo's cigarette, looking at the lighter? What is Micheals thinking, seeing the emblem on the lighter. If you wouldn't...


I have noticed this too. Micheal clearly stopped and keep like thinking for 1~2 seconds looking at the lighter. But it was not the emblem or anything on that lighter that caught Micheal's attention, it was the siren echoing from distance, which made Micheal thinking about what might be coming right way after Tatalia's assasins left. Siren means police, which made Micheal thinks a lot.

Toshiba satellite p305 I tried to uninstall google desktop from my user and I coudn´t. I logged in like administrator and I did. I restart the lap top and did not come up anything, I turned off....


I think that is nothing wrong but you just selected the wrong way to restore it ..You should select to reinstall teh operation system complete ..and also to format the C drive during it ..in quick mode ..this would save time ..I suggest to get it from the start cause more than sure this way is in error ..and if it do not work ..just use a boot-able disk with the operation system and download the drivers for the used operation system from the manufacturer's site..
here is the link fr your model
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=380609&rpn=PS630U&modelFilter=M15-S405&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768667
select the correct 305 one ..and the operation system and download the drivers in case you do not have them ..
If you suspect the recovery is damaged try to see if they can provide a new one or just reinstall it using a boot-able disk ..
you can download an image from torrent sites.
Good luck !

New hard drive for my Toshiba Qosmio G15 R laptop


I believe with Toshiba they normally would give you a recovery disk and then a drivers and utilities disk as well. If you don't have both then I would suggest installing windows xp and then go to this page:http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=835452&rpn=PQG10U&modelFilter=G15-AV501&selCategory=3&selFamily=804517Click on the downloads button and from there choose your operating system and you can download the drivers from that page.You'll know which drivers you'll need by going into the device manager and seeing what has a yellow question mark next to it.If you need more help with this let me know and I'll help you more.
