Any laptop brand will work.
It is nice to get the same size or larger drive and to get the correct connection, IDE or SATA.
You didn't give your model so you need to google your model number with the words "disk drive" after it. That should take you to a site to purchase a new one. Amazon & NewEgg can walk you through this also.

Toshiba DWC120 2TB Harddrive not recognised


Before connecting anything to an USB port you need to install the software for the device. Then you can connect it.
But when you have an old laptop it could be it can't handle the 2 TB.
First install the software that came with the drive. Then see if the laptop can handle the 2TB.

How to remove hard drive from toshiba satellile m55-s135 laptop


This pictorial guide will help me explain,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba_Satellite_M55/laptop_motherboard_1.htm

ALL power removed from the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.
Follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Place a towel, or suitable object on a table, then turn the laptop over, and place on the towel.
If you click on the photo in Step 2 you will see the Harddrive Compartment Cover.

Remove the Philips head screw.
Lift up on the side of the Harddrive Compartment Cover where the screw was.
Remove the cover, lay it aside.

The harddrive plugs into an interface in the Harddrive Compartment.
On the opposite end of the harddrive where it plugs into the interface, should be a single Philips head screw.
Remove the screw.

Use the fabric cloth to gently pull the harddrive away from the interface.
The harddrive may come back only so far, then the end is lifted up to remove the harddrive.
(End opposite of the back of the harddrive where it plugs into the interface)

Use caution as you can accidentally bend pins on the harddrive.

For additional questions, or to clarify what I have stated please post in a Comment.

The previous hard driver was bad. I replaced it with a new hard drive. I used the Toshiba default factory setting to reinstall the softeware and now my laptop will not boot up.


Toshiba default factory setting can only restor your software if you have backup copy on New Harddrive.

As your old Harddrive crashed, you have to reinstall Operating system and requie software on new Harddrive.

Toshiba satellite a205-s5831 Received kernel data error. Hard drive has clicking noises. Programs ran slow. Chkdsk running now for over 15 hours and only on 11%..preplacing bad clusters.


When a harddrive starts clicking it's on it's way out.
Buy a new harddrive and at the same time get a USB to laptop harddrive adapter. You can reinstall XP with the recovery disks that came with your machine ans then slave your old drive to your laptop and recover your personal files.
If you really want to get technicalbuy an Apricorn housing: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817155602
And two new harddrives, fit one new harddrive to the Apricorn housing and try to install the EZgig cloning software to your dying Windows. You can clone your existing Windows install to the new harddrive in the Apricorn housing and then move that drive to your laptop, the second new harddrive can then be fitted to the Apricorn housing and used as an external harddrive.
EZgig comes with the Apricorn housing and you could even go so far as to create a clone of your Windows install to the new external harddrive. The Apricorn housings are excellent, they are small enough to carry in your laptop case and all they need for power is a USB port.
