    sorry maybe i did not make myself quite clear i am trying to install a new hard drive (Hitachi travel star 40gig) into the system i have mentioned, the hard drive has just one jumber on it which i think is set to master but the system does not see the hd , i cant get into the bios to auto detect the drive as it does not show up on the screen to press the right F key, so i am at a loss here as to what to do, i have built many Pcs so am no novice to this, but this one has just baffled me,
    thanks for all your replys.

    Ok, so your 6gb you replace it to 40gb. and if connected the 40gb it cannot be detected. did you try another cable, maybe the cable. please consider also the motherboard capability to carry the 40 gb. there some low version motherboard that cannot carry the 40gb is limitted only to 20GB. please consider some limitation. melnavz

    find another jumper and close the master and slave jumper, try it and it will work. i did it by accidental, sometimes older motherboard did not support larger hd but try with this thing and i hope it works.

How do you get the hard drive out of a Toshiba Equium 7100D computer?


It's been a Long time since I have worked on one of these, so forgive me if my information is somewhat sketchy.

If memory serves the Left side of the case comes off. (Viewing the desktop computer from the front.)

There are clips underneath that need to be depressed, in order to remove this side cover.
From there with a flashlight, you should be able to view the other corresponding clips to depress, and remove the rest of the cover. Believe it lifts up so far, then slides forward.

At the Front Right side is the CD drive. There is a single screw you remove, and then the CD drive tilts up. From there you will see a single screw, that holds the harddrive in.

Once you are able to lift the harddrive up a bit, you wiggle the whitish colored plastic plug, side to side, as you pull out. This is a 4-pin Molex connector. It provides power from the power supply to the harddrive.

Sometimes this Molex connector can be QUITE tight, and hard to remove. DO NOT pull on the wires! If you use finesse, you can use a pair of pliers to wiggle it out. I advise using a Lot of finesse, as you can crush the plug. Sometimes it requires a bit of force!
The Molex plug looks like this,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Molex_female_connector.jpg

Then the 40-pin interface cable connector is removed. (Flat ribbon cable goes to this connector) Use a Lot of finesse here, as the tiny pins can be bent Quite easily!

Now the harddrive is in your hand, and you can examine it more closely.

The 4-pin Molex connector only goes in the harddrive, in one direction.
The top corners are tapered, and allow the plug to be installed only one way.

The 40-pin connector may be another story!
Looking at the connector itself, observe if there is a square lug on top. (Square plastic protrusion, emanating from the top edge of the rectangular plug)

This square lug lines up with a cutout in the back of the harddrive. It puts the 40-pin connector, in the proper position in the harddrive.
If this square lug is absent, don't fret when you go to re-install.
I will advise you the way to do it properly.

On one side of that flat ribbon cable you will see a faint Red line, or stripe. This Red line corresponds with Number 1 pin in the ribbon cable. Number 1 pin is on the side where the Red line is.

Viewing the back of your harddrive that you're going to install, (It is an IDE harddrive. Also referred to as EIDE, ATA, or PATA), note the pin locations.

All the way to the right are 4 pins. This is where the 4-pin Molex connector plugs into.
To the immediate Left are the Jumper pins.

To the Left of the Jumper pins are the 40, (39 actually), pins where the flat ribbon cable plugs into.

Number 1 pin goes towards the power connection.
The Red stripe on the flat ribbon cable, will be facing the 4-pin power connection on the harddrive.

If you have any further questions on this, please come back, and post them in an additional comment.

Toshiba Equium 3200m hard disk upgrade


From all of the specs, it appears that is motherboard only supports up to a 20GB drive. The way to add this drive is to buy a separate hard drive controller, but honestly that is a waste of money. By the time you finished adding pieces and parts to get everything to work, you will have replaced so much that you could buy a new system and alos have issues wiht some things not working.
Dell has a low end desktop for on $399 and you can find some things even less than that in their refurb section, with a warranty, for less.

I have a toshiba Equium L300 & it cannot connect to a wireless router. I have been advised that it is missing a ethernet/wireless driver. Please advise


From what I see about the Equium, the name Equium is in use in UK only. In other European & countries USA the name is Satellite. From the specs of the model you mentioned you DO have a onboard NIC. You might have to uninstall the driver that you have due to corruption and the operating system will install a generic driver for you to use. Or you can go to Toshiba if you’re in Europe
http://www.toshiba-europe.com locate support and you can download the driver there.

If you have a driver your probably not setting (configuring the router and your computer) the network up properly.

Networking Networking: Network adapter
Wireless LAN Supported: Yes
Wireless NIC: Realtek RTL8187B
Data Link Protocol: Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g
Compliant Standards: IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED
