How to wear the Vista/Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 software after upgrade HARD drive


Have ordered a Seagate Momentus 7200.02 200 GB SATA-300 7200 RPM 16 MB 2.5 "for my Satellite Pro A200GE - 26. Toshiba slow disk with this laptop ships is simply not fast enough so it is replaced.

My question is this: can I use the recovery disc of the DVD came with my laptop to reinstall Vista and all the Toshiba drivers on this new album?

If this is not the case-how can I do?

If I can do it - could you give me a checklist of things to do?
Are several factors I need to get used to exist on the recovery disk?

I ask this because I know how to do this on a PC with the Original OS disc, but I was horrified when my laptop has been delivered and no original OS disk - I think it's very bad for any help would be accepted with gratitude.

Thank you in advance,




You should not worry about the whole procedure, just install the HARD drive, put the recovery CD in your CD/DVD drive, press F12 and start with your CD drive or just press 'C' (which automatically inserted CD, boots).

The recovery is not limited to a specific HARD disk, it automatically adjusts the size of the partition and install EVERTHING on your disk as a preinstalled OS shipped directly from the factory. Don t you need some additional drivers or software, the only thing you need to do is to copy your personal data on the system drive and customize your windows.

It is the intention of recovery media: put it in and it does everything by itself.

That's all. :)

See you soon

  • Satellite Pro A10: Question about upgrade HARD drive

    I want a bigger hard drive, but xp home edition preinstalled. If I change the hard drive I don't think that the recovery disc would work to re install xp. How can I do this without having to buy a new version of windows? Oh, it's a portable satellite pro spa10.

    Sorry, but why you are suggesting that the recovery CD will not recognize the new HARD drive?
    The fact is that if the BIOS will recognize the new HARD drive then you will have no problem for the recovery and the installation of the OS.

    If you want to upgrade the HARD drive, you must use a compatible. Then everything simply initialize-towards the top of the recovery CD and the operating system will install on the new HD disc.

    prior to thank you for your support


    It is very unlikely that the 100 or 120 GB HARD drive works.
    I guess that the BIOS will not recognize these hard disks.
    I don't officials documents found on the hard drives supported, but I think that the 60 GB HARD drive is the biggest HARD drive that works on the Satellite Pro 2100.

  • Satellite Pro A210 PSAFHE: need new HARD drive compatible


    Jealous of my relationship with my Tosh laptop - my wife - angry of stupidity, decided to slam closed
    OOPS, it no longer works.

    After cooling down - she did not apologize, BUT said she would pay for the repair.

    After investigation, I feel it may be the hard drive - I have re-installed from master disks and it worked sort of--even allowed to install aol.
    AND he then stopped loading - hearing closely it seems to be looking for the hard drive to complete the load.
    It's a Toshiba Satellite Pro A210 IB1 model PSAFHE - 00800PEN and has a Hitachi hd
    HARD DRIVE: 5K 250-160
    Model: HTS542516K9SA00 5 v DC 700mA 160 GB SATA 5400 RPM

    I can't seem to find one anywhere - tried to contact Toshiba to know what would be appropriate replacements - picking the winning lottery numbers would be easier to get through Toshiba. So I thought I would try the forums.
    In my opinion, it's the hard drive BUT as a mere mortal, I could be wrong - all advice would be appreciated.

    Please tell us what drives fit


    It seems that the laptop supports a HARD drive 2.5 SATA.
    As the controller SATA HDD has no limitation, all SATA 2.5 hard drives should be compatible.

    If you want, so you can choose a 250GB 2.5 SATA HDD THAT and normally it should work as part of your laptop.

    Hello everyone!

    I face a problem after the upgrade of my TOSHIBA SATELLITE PRO C850-1EQ preinstalled version of windows 8 to 8.1.

    After installation windows ask the product key to activate windows 8.1, but I don't have this activation key.

    I called Microsoft (Greece), but could not help me and told me to call Toshiba (Greece).
    The man of Toshiba technical support told me to remind Microsoft!

    In addition, he told me to check here ( before starting the process. Step # 7 says "don't forget your Windows password. You may need to enter after update. »

    Now, I'm back to Win 8.

    Is there a way to learn my activation key before installation of w8.1?
    I tried to find that the use of various tools, but nobody found the key.
    In addition, after 8.1 install, a message says:

    + Error code: 0xC004C003 +.
    + The activation server determined the specified product key has been blocked.

    I trust Toshiba and I want to use the latest version of w8.1.
    I'd be grateful if someone Toshiba technician could help me with this problem.

    No, the preinstalled Windows 8 Toshiba is already activated and during the upgrade to 8.1 Win will not ask you to enter the serial key...

    Windows 8 is activated?

    Try this: create DVDs of Toshiba Recovery (or flash USB memory stick). Use the recovery media to recover the computer laptop back to factory settings. Update of the Windows 8 at the last State and then do the upgrade to 8.1 Win

    I an A10 Pro of the Satellite with Win XP Pro installed and cannot access the power settings. When I go into the power settings in Windows, I get a msg telling me to use Toshiba Power Saver and Win power settings are grayed out.
    I installed which tells me that it is installing the Toshiba Power Saver, but always Win power settings are greyed out and I can't find no separate application "Toshiba Power Saver".

    Hi Dave,.

    You have the "Toshiba common Modules" installed? They must first of all for many models of Toshiba, and power settings module is an add-on for that.

    If you do not have the appropriate restoration or the utility CD handy, the drivers can be downloaded from the Web from Toshiba website.

  • Satellite Pro P70 - Has: 2nd invisible HARD drive - how to initialize the 2nd HARD drive

    I have a P70 - A. Satellite Pro
    'Primary' hard disk failed, and has been replaced by the service centre.

    Now, only the main hard drive is shown and the Service Center said that I had to 'initialize' the second hard drive to make it visible. They assure me that the hard drive is there, just hidden.

    How can I make visible?
    How do I initialize it?

    Usually, you can initialize the disk by DiskManagement.

    In disk management, right-click the disk you want to initialize and then click on initialize disk.
    In the dialog box initialize the disk, select the disk to initialize.
    You can choose to use the master boot record (MBR) or the style of partition GUID partition table (GPT).

    Once a disk is initialized, you can create partitions on it.
    After you create a partition, you can format the partition to create a filesystem (NTFS).
