How to upgrade a toshiba L305 to a 500gb hard without hardware failure error


I'm a bit confused? You are trying to install a HDD with Windows 7 on it from another computer in a Toshiba L305 laptop? If that's correct, it will not work, first, you must format the 500GB SATA HDD, then load the Windows 7 OS to get a clean install. Clarify the question if I am incorrect.

Hi,
With the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop, you can put a 500GB hard drive and up to 2 TB hard drive. The only requirements are to make sure it has a SATA connector and is 2.5" Size. These are very common and easily found online. For example, here a 500GB one that is compatible that I found: Click Here.
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! Contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

What is the exact part or item number or description of the internal hard drive of a toshiba satellite L305-S5924? mine needs replacement and i want to get the exact original compatible part


You do not need the exact part number, your laptop came with a 160GB 2.5" SATA drive.
Any 2.5" SATA laptop drive will fit and work with your laptop. A 500GB drive can be bought for £30.
Take a look on Amazon.
If you want an exact replacement, take your old drive out and search on google for the model number it will have on it

What type of hard drive do i purchase for my toshiba satellite A135-S4656? when i start up my laptop it says replace the hard drive. But I'm not sure what model to replace it with? Can you help me out? ...


160GB SATA 2.5 inch. You can go larger (320-500GB).

You do realize that after replacing the hard drive, all of your data and windows operating system will be on the old disk.

Does the toshiba satellite a135 s2276 accomodate a second hard drive?


You won't find internal room to place a second hard drive, if that's what you're asking. Most laptops simply do not have the internal space, especially thin-line units.

What you could do for extra storage space is purchase an external drive.

I need to upgrade my internal hard drive, what exactly do I need to get the most storage for my Toshiba Notebook Satellite A135-S4666? I would like to have 500gb or more of storage.


There are two kinds of hard drives and you must learn which one your computer has. To do this, Turn the computer off, diconnect the power chord and remove the battery. Locate and remove your present hard drive.

If the connection end of the drive has two plastic covered connection locations, you have a SATA drive.

If the connection end has more than 40 pins, you have an IDE drive. There is no way you can confuse the two types.

Go to your favourite computer parts source (ebay, web store or real store) and buy the largest drive that they have and that you can afford. Install the drive and install your favourite Operating System.

The largest IDE drive is 320 GB and the largest SATA drives I've seen are 500 GB. Best of good computing with your new drive.
