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.

Hello dear experts the hard disk of my toshiba tecra m1 laptop was damaged and i bought new hard disk to replace it but it wont detect the new hard disk in the bios the new hard drive model is : western...


All IDE hard drives are cross compatable. I would think you have eaither bent a pin inside the carriage compartment or your IDE adapter is either not pushed on the new HD good or is bad.

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.

This page solution worked for me.
Some CD burner sw is creating this issue: they monopolize the optical drive and if you remove or if they have a prioblem, CD/DVD drive is NOT released.
