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.

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.

The best option is to install WinXP on the new drive, partition the drive
C:, D:, E: etc
and use C for WinXP
Once you are done with WinXP install Win7 in D

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 have a Toshiba laptop and I recently had to wipe my laptop because of a virus. I have two installation disks that have to be installed (duh), but whenever I am almost finished with the second disk it...


Hi There, when you formatted the hard drive, did you remember to partition the space correctly? If not, run through the process again, and remember to partition it again. If it is saying a corrupt hard drive, it means that the hard drive can't be read. Like trying to read a paper that has been burned in a fire. If the hard drive is corrupt after format, you need to buy a new hard disk, and remember to make sure it is the same kind as the old one.

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.

Need to install a new hard drive into my son's Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro Laptop. Need to know which Hard Drive to purchase and how to fit / set-up. Any help you can provide would be gratefully...


If the laptop is less than 3 years old, then any 2.5'' hard drive will work.
Some laptop need slim hard drive, if you buy a slim 2.5'', this will mount on all laptops after 2004.
To get more details submit the problem on Fixya again providing information on your laptop's model.

Installing Fujitsu MHV2100BH hard drive


I recomend installing an OS, you may need to buy a new cd if you dont have one, or if it came with a recovery CD, then use that. If it doesent work then, the hard drive you bought is damaged.
