I believe you are referring to the recovery disk. This is available from the manufacturer. Please check if you have the Recovery Disk Creator program in your laptop. If you do, that means you can make your own recovery disk. If not, please contact manufacturer. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Toshiba satellite a15-s157 wifi problem


Your card has the correct drivers installed, but that's not enough Windows XP has native support for WiFi. Just visit
www.toshiba.com and go to Products & Services, select Portables and then on
the left hand side click Support, then choose Tech Support Center, choose
your model of laptop in the list boxes and voila, a list of all Toshiba
drivers, choose the WiFi software and install.

Cloned 40 gb hard drive to a 160 gb for toshiba A15-S157 model


I'm guessing that your question is why does my new 160G hard drive only show up as a 40G. When you use Norton Ghost to make an image of your hard drive, there were several questions it asked. One was whether you wanted to make an image of the whole partition. When this is selected Ghost acts like a camera and takes a picture of your old drive, partitions and all. When you put this image on a new drive it puts on exactly that a picture of your old (40G) drive. I have never been successful a trying to expand an image. As long as the old drive is still good you could start the process over and make an image of just your data, then format the 160G drive, reinstall Windows and place the data image on the new drive. You will have to reinstall the applications.

Install new hdd toshiba a15-s157


Not much, its all pretty automatic, just answer the questions.
After installing the WD, power up, open the tray, insert the reinstall disk and reboot.
One of 3 things will happen. It will boot to the CD and start installing, or press and key to boot from CD will appear (press any key quickly), or it will try to boot from the hard drive and fail. If you experience the last option it means that the hard drive is set to boot before CD. Yor system may have a boot menu option where you can select the boot device or you may have to go into the bios and change the boot order.

The follow link is to a Toshiba article that explains the boot menu and changing the boot sequence in the bios.

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_dtlView.jsp?soid=403623&moi

What it does not explain is how to access the bios. On some Toshiba system you have to press ESC right after you hit the power button, on others it is F1, on newer systems you have to hold the ESC while you press the power button and hold it until it display System Check and then press F1 .

Toshiba Satellite A15 series


Sounds like the hard Drive is bad.

Step one

Power on the computer and start hiting F8

Then there should be a option there to boot into safe mode.

If you can boot into this it is not your Hard drive.

You might have some spyware or viruses on it.
