I had the same problem with the Satellite P15 S420. Following Psybheng's lead I fooled with the screws on the bottom and found that the disk drive is held in by one screw. With the unit upside down and the disk drive at your stomach, you will see a screw slightly to the left that goes into the 'frame'. Remove it and remove the drive!

The DVD drive is secured to the laptop by two screws.
Remove two screws and slide the DVD drive out of the notebook base.

You can visit this site where you can locate the 2 screws http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/ToshibaA45/Satellite-A45-remove-hinges-1.htm

I have a Toshiba A45-S121 laptop. I upgraded my hard drive from a 40GB hard drive to a 320GB Western Digital. Loaded Windows XP and formated drive in FPTS format. The computer rebooted to the hard drive...


Best possible solution put back your 40GB and try to get an external casing for your 320GB to see if it works.And try windows on NTFS instead of FPTS, so reformat your 320GB and install the Windows XP again.
I hope this solution is helpful.

I currently have no os loaded on my laptop....when installing ubuntu/linex on it I continue to get errors... is my harddrive done? Do I need to replace it?


It could either be:
* the CD-ROM drive is mis-reading,
* the CD-ROM media is damaged,
* the hard-drive is mis-writing or mis-reading,
* the RAM in your computer is mis-writing or mis-reading.

Download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and burn it to a bootable CD-disk. Boot your computer from the CD, and it will "exhaustively" do a "test" of your RAM.

On the web, go to Toshiba.com and select your country. Look for support or downloads then choose your computer. You should get to a page that has all the latest downloads for your computer. You may want to download them all as they will be the latest, and install them.
