Change of Hard Disk

Original hard disk (IDE, Toshiba 6.0 GB) of the laptop failed and I need to change it. I could not find a hard disk of the same size. The minimum was 40GB (Fujitsu). Do you know what is the maximum hard disk size I can install in this laptop? Could I install a 120 GB Hard Disk?
Thanks in advance.

When i tried to reboot the toshiba laptop to factory the HD came up black and the mouse pointer was visible, but the windows reboot would not start. HD failure?


Go to BIOS setup and check out the mode of the hard disk use. Usually must be AHCI, sometimes IDE. Every change after installation makes Windows unusable.

Seagate external hard disk is not getting detected in windows 7 previously it was detecting. i tried to change usb cable, tried on different system but nothing worked. i want to take backup of data also....


This is my suggestion for you to possibly recover the back up file in your external hard disk.

Remove the enclosure cover of the external hard disk. Detach the hard disk from the ide connection.
Change the jumper setting of the hard disk to slave. See the sticker in the hard disk to see how to set up the jumper to slave. Connect the hard disk to the ide cable inside your pc. If your computer is equipped with sata cable, just find some ide cable and connect it the the ide slot in your motherboard.

Restart your system and you will find your hard disk as drive (d:) in your system. If this was successful then problem can be cause by loose terminal solder in the usb/ide connector of the enclosure, or possible voltage drop of the power supply of the enclosure. USB driver issue or problem with the usb slot in your computer can also cause this issue.

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.

Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 notebook, os xp. Change hard drive couldn't use recovery disk, put in each driver from recovery disk after installing os. Blue screen states the bios in this system is not fully...


The thing is that windows xp ..usually does not have the drivers for teh acpi or achi mode and you need to get into bios and disable teh mode and let the hard disk to run in IDE compatible or sata as ide..
the function can be disabled in the same screen where teh hard disk and other sata and ide devices are presented..
After you disable the achi mode..it will work ..remember that you have to save changes with F10 before exit bios..
another way to make this work ..is install the windows xp in this mode..after you are done ..just install all drivers for it ..including raid and ahci drivers..and change it back from bios..It may work ..if it sees the drivers..
or ..you need to install the drivers when you get to teh press F6 to install 3rd party drivers....and you have to find a way to get them ...cause this operation is done usually b yusing a floppy diskette so ..to have a chance to do it .. you need to try to install them from a usb or install windows from usb and use the disk with drivers in the optical drive ..
If I would be in your place I would not complicate myself and just go to bios and change the bus mode for the hard disk ..save changes and reinstall operation system if needed..or go on from where it was..It will see the hard disk and no longer give you the blue screen

Hard drive failed - replaced 60GB with 250 GB M35X can't format


Does your BIOS recognize the new hard drive?
Are you reinstalling from a Toshiba recovery disk or an operating system disk?

Additionally, there is a setting in the BIOS to turn on or off ACPI function for the hard drive. Find this in the BIOS, change it, and try reinstalling again.

When it works, be sure to change it back after installation.

Good luck.
