    There is no latch underneath there is a screw directly under the DVD but it didn't slide out. Do you have any other suggestions?

SOURCE: replace cd rom with a dvd+rw cd rom in a toshiba satellite

You should be able to, there is usually only one screw holding the drive in, if you hold the replacement up to where the instlled one is, you should see the approximate location of the screw ( may be under another panel, Memory,hard drive etc.., the drive will just slide out, then make sure the connectors are the same, and swap or place the mounting bracket on the new one, and slide it back in place, replacing any screws removed

Hi I am Vortash .. the best thing to try first would be starting it up in safe mode , Turn on and keep pressing f8 this should trigger the safe mode screen and choose start in safe mode only no drivers no network
if it works ok like that , then shut down and start normally turn on and allow to start normally then click start accessories system tools and then restore ... hopefully that will work .. if not see if it will restore in safe mode .. if they both fail you probably have a faulty hard drive or the interface where the computer is connected to the hard drive .. to check use an external hard drive ( usb) with an operating system on and the bios in the computer set to boot from removable in one of the boot options .... if it does boot up like that check the pins on the hard drive are not damaged or dirty ( you don't know how long it was in that garage lol ) if the interface connection is faulty there is not a lot you can do about that as it takes specialist equipment to repair multi layered surface mounted boards .. hope this helps Vortash

SOURCE: 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.

Hello, Can I install a 512MB DDR DIMM, N mem stick taken out of my Dell Desktop into a Toshiba Satellite A15, S129 laptop? Thanks, RD


You can try, without fear of having your laptop "blow-up".

Turn your laptop off.

Remove the battery.

Physically, does the RAM fit into the RAM slot? If not, the answer is 'no' -- most "desktop" RAM is much bigger than most "notebook" RAM.

If it fits, connect the AC power, and turn the computer on.
If it beeps wildly, or does not beep at all, the RAM is incompatible.
Disconnect the AC power.

Remove the RAM.

Re-insert the "old" RAM.

Re-insert the battery.

Reconnect the AC power.

Do a Google-search for "RAM upgrade Satellite A15" to find sellers that sell compatible RAM.

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.
