Depending on the brand... you need to press a function key (F2, F9, F10, or F12 keys) to get into the BIOS and you need to change the boot sequence to start booting on your CD or DVD drive. but the operating system disc should be in the disc drive before doing this.

Help my laptop isn't working


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Which webcam should i buy to use on my nx6325? all the newer ones seem to lag as the graphics card looks too old for them?


You could get better performance with more RAM, but since the laptop is old I suggest you put your money towards a new laptop.
You could remove the hard drive from your old laptop and insert the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and file transfer.

You need to buy a new hard drive, then copy the data from the old hard drive to the new one. Unless you are a tech guy, ask someone to help you.

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...


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.

I only have a 4 GB Hard Drive. I need more space.


Hello,

There will be more works to install an internal hard drive. You need to back up your data in the old drive, install the operating system in new drive, and copy back your data. I will think buying an external hard drive will be better options (or an usb hard drive enclosure and hard drive buying separately).

I was told my laptop now needs a new hard drive, but the tech suggested I not bother trying to have it fixed. A new hard drive wouldn't be expensive but the labor to put it on is twice as much. What do you...


Sata hard drives are available but the installation and all that are cumbersome . I think you should go ahead and upgrade and you can sell this off for some money as well . My point of view anyway . You can llok for sandisks or wd second hand drives. SHould be good.
