I purchased Apricorn upgrade product to install a new 120 GB hard drive in my Toshiba P15.

Any ideas?

    I have just cloned my XP SP3 Drive to an external USB drive using Apricorn Upgrade II.

    I then tried to boot from the cloned USB drive. (Used BIOS setup to turn off local HDD and boot USB drive first).

    I get a BSOD during boot.

Basically this product does not do what it is advertised to do. You have to do a custom clone (not typical as suggested) and try to get an exact copy the drive you want to copy.

But... If you are upgrading to a larger drive you will now have to do a diskpart as an external drive in order to get the complete upgrade your drive.

Toshiba Satellite Notebook M45-S351 I recently purchased an upgraded hard drive - 160 GB Samsung Spinpoint and upgraded the RAM (Crucial 1 GB, bringing the total to 1.5 GB of the allowable 2 GB). Impetus...


Remove thwe new RAM and hard drive. Does it boot to the BIOS menu? If yes, add the hard drive and do the same again then add RAM and do the same.
I suspect something does not fit in properly. Probably the RAM.
Don't forget to initialise the hard drive if trying to format it. The System disk should take care of that.

Hi there, yes you can upgrade your 80GB to 120GB hard drive on your Flybook V5. Toshiba makes a great drive for this. If you need instructions or help however, I was able to get all my questions answered by emailing info@flybooksupport.com . I could not get through to anyone at Flybook directly however. :o(

I want to replace Hardisk Toshiba A135-S4467 to 320 Gb ?


Hello,
If your laptop hard drive is a 2.5" drive you should be able to upgrade it. There are some online retailers that you could purchase one from:

Internal Hard Disk Upgrade


Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).

Boot problem


There are three possible options ranging from free (if you are not afraid to open your laptop, locate and remove the bios battery) to $170 (for a new hard drive and a cloning kit).

Option 1: Here is a copy of an email from Acer Support:
Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. In order to have the BIOS or hard disk password removed (This include any biometric security), the notebook will need to come in to our repair depot for password removal. This service is not covered by warranty and unfortunately there is no other recourse to remove a BIOS or HDD password from the notebook. The flat fee for BIOS password removal is $100.00 US dollars plus tax. If it is a BIOS or HDD password and you would like us to service it for you, please contact our telephone technical support line at 1-800-816-2237. Hours of operation are 7am-9pm CST Monday-Friday and 8am-5pm CST Saturday and Sunday, excluding holidays.

Option 2: Resetting an Acer BIOS Password Using Hardware.
If you cannot boot the Acer and don't want to send your computer back to Acer for an unknown amount of time, you can try to reset the BIOS password via hardware.
Tech FAQ Forum members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

Option 3: Possibly resetting BIOS Password using Hard Drive Upgrade Kit and a new Hard Drive.
A colegue told me that he used a hard drive upgrade kit and during the cloning process the hard drive password was erased. He can not recall providing the password when he booted from the bootable cloning CD provided with the Kit and when he replaced the hard drive with the cloned one and botted the laptop, the hard drive password was gone! He had to go into bios to manually enter a new hard drive password.
The kit he used was about $50 - APRICORN EZ-UP-UNIVERSAL 2.5" USB 2.0 Hard Drive Upgrade Kit - Retail. He paid for a bigger hard drive separately, but he just needed bigger hard drive (and found out about the password erasure by accident).

The video card is NOT upgradeable.

the system should support a 120 GB HDD

NOTE: This system is old enough to be considered operationally obsolete and not a good candidate for an upgrade. Especially with new portables starting at $499
