With the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop, you can put a 500GB hard drive and up to 2 TB hard drive. The only requirements are to make sure it has a SATA connector and is 2.5" Size. These are very common and easily found online. For example, here a 500GB one that is compatible that I found: Click Here.

With that model you need a PATA hard drive. You can go as high as 320gb hd in that laptop. Now the higher the GB the more it costs and well that is up to you. I personally would stick with a 160gb 5400rpm drive for decent size and decent speed.
Actually you can put just about any size in there. The only thing you need to do is match the connector style. (that takes care of anything else) There are two type SATA and EIDE SATA is the new style and you can get a 500gb drive (and bigger ) EIDE is the older style and has a block looking socket. SATA looks like a tab. On the label on your dead drive you should see a diagram and it should say sata or eide.
Now as long as you get the same connector as your old drive you can get what ever size of drive they have. So this is a good time to spend $10 more and get a 160 or a 320 instead of the 80. The brand does not matter as long as the conenctor and type are correct. I put a 160 in a old A70 I had as there was only a few dollars difference in the prices.

The maximum size hard disk you can install in your Toshiba depends upon the BIOS. The BIOS can support a hard disk up to a certain capacity. Check the specification of your model Toshiba to see the maximum hard drive it can support.
An alternative -
You can use an external USB hard drive and connect it to your Toshiba and not be restricted by the BIOS. You can use USB hard drive 500 Mb to more than 1 Tb.
The other advantage of using an external USB hard drive is you do not need to install Windows, the device drivers and your programs on the new hard drive.
