Either the hard disk or the southbridge chip is defective - Check the hard disk in another pc; if it's recognized there then the motherboard will have to be replaced.

Just replaced HDD in Satellite L305 w/ above HDD. I will be installing Windows XP SP3 on the Toshiba HDD that I just installed, will I need to download the ACHI XP F6 Install tool for this HDD?


ACHi drivers/firmware updates are loaded after xp generic driver installation, you only need to have the drivers handy on a floppy during the xp installation for a raid driver array

How do I install windows xp pro sp3 on my Toshiba L355 S7812 laptop? Each time I try to install windows setup can not find the hard disk.


Check in your bios if it sees your HDD in there, typically it is F1, F2 or DEL key while posting.
Is the laptop running an OS?

HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.


The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.

Hoe to install a diferent windows on a DELL


If HDD makes shshshsh.... or spinning sound or generates heat, your HDD might be ok. Next Try with XP sp2 cd. If it again cant detect HDD, go to BIOS setting and watch if the HDD is showing it's status. If Bios can not detect HDD check HDD cable and power cable inserted in HDD. Replace them if needed. Format the HDD with another PC. If you still have problem replace HDD with new one. One thing you might use your corrupted HDD as a slave drive later, i hope.

Keep informing.

HDD Reformatting


why not reinstall sp3 again for windows xp if it freezes then it might be looking for files that don't exist anymore. If the virus attatched itself to your files they may have been removed when you ran your virus software. you don't need to format to reload windows. Just simply do a clean reinstall on C drive.
