    Thanks, I was hoping to be able to swap them out My A-85 has power supply and keyboard problems and I just picked up this A-15. I guess I have to transfer stuff the old and slow way!

    That's certainly true but I was hoping to move usernames, passwords, preferences and the like. I was hoping for the super easy short cut but you can't win them all.

It seems that it won't work. Because the A-85 has an EIDE hard drive and the A-15 has a IDE hard drive.

but if you have both laptops, take both hard drives out and check them out..

Makes strange noises & it is coming from the hard drive location. is taking too long to start & to operate.


If the noises are coming from the hard drive, these sounds usually mean the hard drive is getting ready to give out. These noises are generated by the read/write arm dragging across the platers that are inside or the platter spindle bearing is going out. There is no way to repair them. This will also cause the computer to operate more slowly as the computer must put together the pieces of information it needs to operate. I would recommend backing up all information before it fails then replacing the hard drive.

How can i full recovery of my pc


You have a bad hard drive...probably. I hope it's a bad hard drive, the other possibility is a mobo and that's a whole lot pricier. Order this drive and swap it out with your current one. I can't be 100% sure, but in every laptop that I've seen with a write sector failure on reload, it results from a bad hd.

get this one.

Hard drive crashed


Nope, it's just a matter of pulling the old hard drive and putting in the new one. Sometimes there will be an adapter attached to your old drive that you'll have to transfer over to the new one. What you need is a 2.5" mobile PATA (IDE) drive.

Toshiba satellite a15-s129 boots then lots of error screens show.


If you are referring to drive read errors when you attempt to open ANYTHING ("please restart program").. i installed a newer version of xp, windows7, and everything works fine now. this was not my laptop, so naturally i didnt care about wiping the HD. but the reason i was given this laptop was most likely the same problem you have, and now i have a brand new laptop, heh.
