Question about Toshiba Axiom 60GB HDD Satellite Pro 4300, 4280, 4260 Series (AXT0760) Hard Drive
Hi, just trying to format laptop, do you know the best way to do it?
What operating system are you using? If windows xp then just right click on the icon of the hard drive in "My Computer", select "format" and follow the instructions with all the default settings. Be aware that if you do this you will have to have your windows xp cd or a cd for a different operating system in order to be able to restart the laptop. You will have to reinstall the OS and then all the necessary drivers for the laptop and any software you are running. What exactly is causing you to wish to format? Usually there is an easier way to solve HDD problems. Please post back with more info

Ouch memory managers don't work very well at all. Turn off disk indexing and you will notice the speed increase when accessing the drive. Go into the control panel, administrative tools, services, and when you get the services window open look for "Indexing Service" right click it go to properties, and in the drop down menu select disabled. IF you for some reason get an error then also open up my computer, and right click your hard disk go to properties and there should be something there saying allow the indexing service to index this drive....uncheck that box. now after you get that done reboot, and notice the speed increase for hard disk access time. Older Toshiba Satellite Pro's 4xxx series have a max of 320MB of ram, and max of 256MB stick of ram so don't go buying too big.
