    I have done this with a download from toshiba date 8/2001 but I still get the same result. The replacement h/drive I have is a seagate 40 gig. which is to big for the machine, it will only carry 32 gig. I have down loaded sea-tools to chock the drive,but I need a working machine to do this job.any further help or suggestions will be gratefully recieved.

Try going into bios utility and check to see if there is a HDD enable option. If not, find another pc and burn a bootable bios disc with the original bios.

Is there sd card drivers available for my satellite m55-s325


If you are using WinXP or later, you shouldn't need sd card drivers. Try installing the latest software for your media reader from http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/downloads/sm50flashx.exe

Can't remember bois password


You could try flashing the bios, but your wiggle room is limited. You may or may not see effects on the password. I would try the default 0000, or 00000. If that fails, i would look into flashing. It is hard, and risky, but it may be your only way out. Unfortunatly i would be liable if i told you how, so i would look up a blog about it.
Sorry i couldn't help

Toshiba Satellite 3000 hard drive


If you saved the old bios info on a floppy before you flashed your bios with the new bios info, you can reflash and restore your bios back to the original. However if you didn't save the info which is usually saved as a .bin file you still have a chance to re flash back to original settings. Use a friends computer with a floppy drive and download your original bios program from the toshiba web site or any other site which has bios flash programs/utility file to the floppy and reflash. If you laptop doesn't have a built in floppy you can use aexternal one that connects to the rs232 parallel printer connector. Thats if your laptop has one of these now becoming an obsolete port on most if not all laptops. As this port is being replaced by the USB port.
