What is the largest hard drive supported by toshiba p25 s507


The specs say that you have a 60Gb. hard drive. If the unit is less than 2 years old, you should be able to install a 200-300 GB. hard drive without any issues. The older laptops have a 137 GB. limit on hard drive partition space. You still can put a larger capacity drive, but you will have to partition the drive into c: 137GB, then the second partition can be any size.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response
Thanks, Joe

Cannot get Toshiba P@% S507 to see new hard drive.


you can't use a restore disk made for a specific hard drive with a much larger hard drive. This information is checked by the restore cd. You would need to contact toshiba and get a regular windows install cd.

I can't read my screen because it it too llght


You should have a Fn button on your laptop, and pressing that, combined with the button that has a sun on it should raise your screen brightness, if your screen only has one brightness setting, and it got much darker all of a sudden, your LCD lamp probably went out, in which case it is probably better to buy a new laptop, because those are expensive to replace.

Toshiba P25-S507 crashed WindowsXP because of Digital Mode button


If you can boot to a windows CD, you can try a "repair installation" of Windows, this will let you reinstall windows on top of itself, without harming your data:

My Toshiba Satellite P25 will no longer boot up but keeps running the following text. RTL8139(x)/8130/810X PCI ethernet controller v2.13 (020326) PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable PXE M0F: exiting...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I am tempted to think that the CMOS/BIOS could not detect the internal hard disk and therefore is booting from the LAN. Pls reboot and enter CMOS/BIOS setup. Thereafter determine if the computer could detect the hard disk either auto or manually.

If the above solution has merit, pls click on my "Ask Me" to explore additional options, postback how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
