If im understanding you correctly, you are saying that you are trying to install vista on a laptop but that it doesnt see the hard drive. In this case, try another hard drive as the hard drive may be corrupted. If you plug the hard drive into another computer with a device you can buy from your local electronics store, like Fry's (it'll be called something like a USB 2.0 to SATA and IDE adapter) you can download software (perhaps from the site of whatever company made your hard drive) that will allow you to check the hard drive for errors. Or, better yet, if you go to my computer and the drive actually shows up, then u can right click it, and click on properties. then click on tools tab, then click on "check now". Then once the screen for it pops up, select all check boxes and make sure that they are checked. Press Ok. And let it start. If it asks you if you want to schedule a disk check for the next time you start your computer (this is better) click ok. Then restart your computer and let it work. It will take several hours to do. But it should fix your computer. If it doesnt, contact me.

Toshiba Satellite Laptop M205-S4805 gets overheated and shuts down


Hi
This can happen when the air vents are blocked by dust or similar particles, it can also occur if the fan is not running to the full capacity. The best you can do is to seek an expert advice as trying to open the casing without proper knowledge has a risk of damaging the system.
Regards.

Unable to format, partition,ins. os and boot my toshiba TE2100..


The CMOS needs to be set to first read the CD or DVD drive before it reads the Hard drive. Once your XP disk is in the drive it will boot from the CD drive and setup the computer, The CMOS is acessed by turning on the computer and immediatly pressing either the deleat key or the F! or F2 key try each one till you get to CMOS then look for boot section. Set CD drive to first your HD drive to second.

No solution found on your site. My 62" Toshiba DLP makes an extremely loud chopping noise when on HD channels using a satelite service. (Happened on Dish and Suddenlink) No sound except for the chopping....


Have you contacted your satelite provider? Have you any other HD sources to try, A Playstation 3, a blue-ray disc player or even using the TV's terrestrial HD tuning system can tell you if its the TV or the Satelite.
