First, make sure that you can do this task. Acquire the proper tools and software and disassemble the unit, making Sure that you know where all those parts go. Unplug and remove the drive and install your new one. Put it all back and power up. You're now ready to install that software that I mentioned earlier. Your BIOS should allow the new drive to be recognized and will now let you install your software. Good luck with this....accordianman

How to unlock toshiba satellite laptop BIOS and HDD

If you are the original owner Toshiba will reset the bios for a fee and it is not cheap, they may include the HDD reset, if not! www.ebay.com type password, or hard drive password. I would check bios password, probably a lot cheaper if you can find the right seller, also check www.download.com some software may be free.

Please enter HDD1/SSD1 User password

If you get prompted for the HDD password when turning on the computer, and you do not know it you will need to call Toshiba support. Circumventing an HDD password is not an easy task.
Also there where Toshiba laptops, model 6100, that when the user was suddenly prompted for the HDD password Toshiba replaced the HDD under warranty.

You bought a new hdd drive that seems working good, Hdd (Hardisk Drive) is connected to a port that is also connected to the motherboard, in this case that port is no longer stable possible cause of the accident, you need to replace that port to fix or to identify the problem. This hardware device is really sensitive thing, you need a personal technician to troubleshoot the problem if you're not familiar with this device
