The hard drive became disconnected. I took out all of the screws to the outer case (5), gently slid cover down until the small ribbon connector for the power buttons is exposed, unclip and remove. Set aside back of unit (at this point the hard drive might come with it if the ribbon has come out of the back) at the top there is a two screw metal bracket that covers the ribbon connection for the hard drive. Remove the ribbon from the main unit and gently force it back into the hard drive ribbon connector. once fully seated you can reinsert the other end, replace the two screw bracket in a way that holds the ribbon down. Slide the backing back far enough to reinsert the power buttons ribbon connector and then test it before you throw in those last 5 screws.

Windows boot manager for TOSHIBA PRO L300

You will need an original windows installation disc and not a recovery disc. If you do not have one, then you have the option of taking to a shop that does and have them run the repair utility. Or, if you can find someone who has burned a copy of the windows ultimate boot disc, that will also help in repairing the boot manager and files.

Ionic breeze stopped working won't turn on was very dusty, cleaned it wont light up


When this happens, usually the filter must be replaced.

If the model is post 2007, to get parts or repair contact Ionic Breeze support. Here contact page.

If the model was manufactured before 2007, read below, in that case I suggest not proceeding with the repair.

I want to call attention on the fact that several of old Ionic Breeze models are not being manufactured anymore because of health concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts for old models that raised concerns are not distributed anymore.
I suggest contacting manufacturer, if parts are not available, then the purifier was among the ones related to health concer. In that case I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Please read the article below:

Gigabeat screan read contact manufacturer fo repair

You've either got the wrong battery or did something wrong when you installed it. You must make sure that the main power switch at the bottom is turned off.
