Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S6104 Notebook

1 Answer

CHANGED HDD FORMAT

I Tried using Partition Magic 8.0 to format a dynamic disk (120 GB), thinking it was a regular basic disk. Then I got the "stupid" flashing blue screen with error codes; that no even Speedy Gonzalez could read. And no any digital camera could get a reading picture. I ended up with the recovery disks; and I got a freaking only 30 GB basic disk without any more space for partitions. Would you please help to get back the others 90 GB space?

The best thing you can do now will be to obtain a windows Startup disk and use fdisk utility to format.. If you are using a seagate HDD then you can also try seagate disk manager. Another option will be to boot from win XP CD and start the setup.. During the setup it will at some point it will provide you the options
1)format using NTFS
2)FOrmat using FAT
3)Format Using FAT32
From these choose format using FAT32. Thats all it will be formatted.. Afterwards you can use a tool like Partition Magic to resize and create more drives on the HDD.

Good luck!
Sai.
