Go here, click on the tab that says "detailed specs" it will prompt you to save the PDF, open the pdf and on the last page you'll see a picture of where the hard drive is.

It's just two screws, unscrew them and slide it out.

Hope this helps!

Toshiba Satellite 1005-S157 shuts down periodically by itself. Replaced fan/heatsink. Still shuts off.


you need to check a few things... when the fan/heatsink assembly were replaced, did you make sure that the thermal pads on the CPU and GPU are NEW/Good.... Make sure that the Heatsink GPU pad Firmly sits in the chip....

You can test the thermal controller by using a hair dryer or heat gun.... Point it onto the heatsink pipes and see if your fan spins when the pipes get hot, then remove and see if the fans slow after a minute...

You might have faulty RAM or Misseated RAM... Pull The RAM chips and reseat them...
Also Make Sure Your CPU Is Locked Down....

Periodic Shut Downs Can Be Caused By Quite A Few Different Things...

Typically it's due to Thermal Damage
Though Failing RAM or A Failing Hard Drive, Overheated Video/GPU Chip, Or Even Failing CPU can as Well Cause This Issue...

Cloned 40 gb hard drive to a 160 gb for toshiba A15-S157 model


I'm guessing that your question is why does my new 160G hard drive only show up as a 40G. When you use Norton Ghost to make an image of your hard drive, there were several questions it asked. One was whether you wanted to make an image of the whole partition. When this is selected Ghost acts like a camera and takes a picture of your old drive, partitions and all. When you put this image on a new drive it puts on exactly that a picture of your old (40G) drive. I have never been successful a trying to expand an image. As long as the old drive is still good you could start the process over and make an image of just your data, then format the 160G drive, reinstall Windows and place the data image on the new drive. You will have to reinstall the applications.

Install new hdd toshiba a15-s157


Not much, its all pretty automatic, just answer the questions.
After installing the WD, power up, open the tray, insert the reinstall disk and reboot.
One of 3 things will happen. It will boot to the CD and start installing, or press and key to boot from CD will appear (press any key quickly), or it will try to boot from the hard drive and fail. If you experience the last option it means that the hard drive is set to boot before CD. Yor system may have a boot menu option where you can select the boot device or you may have to go into the bios and change the boot order.

The follow link is to a Toshiba article that explains the boot menu and changing the boot sequence in the bios.

What it does not explain is how to access the bios. On some Toshiba system you have to press ESC right after you hit the power button, on others it is F1, on newer systems you have to hold the ESC while you press the power button and hold it until it display System Check and then press F1 .

Toshiba Satellite A15 series


Sounds like the hard Drive is bad.

Step one

Power on the computer and start hiting F8

Then there should be a option there to boot into safe mode.

If you can boot into this it is not your Hard drive.

You might have some spyware or viruses on it.
