Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently bought a Toshiba Satalite laptop to replace the one I dropped which was also a Toshiba Satalite. I had taken out the old hard drive and installed it in the new one but now it wont do anything but sit on the page where it asks whether I want to open in last known configuration or safe mode or normally. Any ideas how to resolve this ??? FYI ;the new one has Vista Business and the old one has XP Pro does this matter or not ???

Yes it does matter. XP was configured for the old Toshiba and this will only work if both Toshiba laptops are exactly the same model.
To get your new Toshiba operating, put the new hard drive with the Vista operating system back in the Toshiba laptop.
To transfer your data from the old hard drive, purchase a USB adapter hard drive case and place the old hard drive inside this case. This will then be an external USB hard drive.
Plug this USB hard drive into the new Toshiba's USB port and it will detect it as an external storage/hard drive. You can then open the various folders and files and copy the data files to your new Toshiba.
To free up disk space on this USB hard drive, delete the Windows folder, Program Files folder and other folders that are no longer needed.
Use this hard drive as a backup hard drive etc.

Product name;toshiba satalite d500,window 7.when ever I power the laptop it automatically trip off when it get to STARTING WINDOW logo.have replaced the memory,hard drive and processor,still d same......av...


This problem could be due to overheating. Check that the vents are clear of dust. Also make sure the heatsink is sitting correctly on the processor and that there is some thermal paste applied where they meet. The fan should be positioned so that the air is blowing down on the heatsink.

I have a Toshiba (MK4004GAH) 40 GB Hard Drive which was taken out from a Old Toshiba Laptop. I bought a 1.8" IDE casing with USB and connected to my new laptop....however, it fails to detect the HDD....


You have to make sure that you have connected the HDD in the right way. Please open it and ensure that you placed the disk rightly into the casing with each pin tapping the rightful hole, see the casing's small manual. Note also that the laptop has to detect the casing as well, so cross check the casing to ensure that its working.
