How to Reload WIndows on a New Hard Drive?


You don't need to remove a hard drive to install a new operating system. You need an operating system reinstallation disc to do that. You can find a lot of tutorials on how to install windows 7 in youtube.

My toshiba nb520' operating system is gone when i open it says operating system cannot be found.


The hard drive in your laptop is bad and will need to be replaced, first remove hardware and carefully reseat it back in place, sometimes the hard drive will restart, "long shot" if still nothing! have it checked for possible replacement.

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 15.4" Widescreen Can


Hi,
With the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop, you can put a 500GB hard drive and up to 2 TB hard drive. The only requirements are to make sure it has a SATA connector and is 2.5" Size. These are very common and easily found online. For example, here a 500GB one that is compatible that I found: Click Here.
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! Contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

Missing or corrupt file on booting up,go to setup to do a repair. F2 for 'setup' F12 for 'boot device selection menu'. But F2 and F12 do nothing, is there other alternate keys to operate.


depending on the model, sometimes F11 is the OS recovery key for Toshibas, it's possible your hard drive could be going bad. if the laptop is under warranty I recommend contacting Toshiba. If out of warranty it's best to take the laptop to a local computer shop.

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.

My toshiba start and then turns off


Hard drives don't come with an operating system installed on them. If you have the recovery discs from the computer then you can use those to reinstall Windows onto the new drive. If you don't have the discs you will need to contact the manufacturer (Toshiba) and order a new set of the discs.

Another option would be to take it to your local repair store and find out if they have any OEM discs they can use to reinstall Windows for you.

Hope this helps :)

Toshiba startup


This is one of two things, 1- an operating system error or glitch, a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc will fix it, or 2- a hard drive failure. If the system repair doesn't work, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the drive will not format, or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive is bad and will need replaced.

Laptop won't boot up


This is an operating system error, and sometimes indicates a hard drive failure. Start by running a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. This usually takes care of it, if it doesn't, reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

My laptop will not boot up.


Try to put your harddrive, check on the screen if it can detect the harddrive. If it says there that ntldr is missing or if it is looking for an operating system try to install a new operating system. It like reformatting your PC.
