Need info on type of hard disk for Satellite A100

I have a model of Satellite A100 (PSAA9E)

It used to power up, but I need all the info on the hard drive, which models are compatible (plug-and-play style) so I can buy a 2nd hand laptop and use my old hard drive
(assuming this is possible)

Thank you


In Satellite A100 a SATA interface HARD drive and if you want to use the data you can simply buy box USB HDD and connect it to any PC or laptop as external device.
So you will have full access to all the data stored there.

Good bye

  • Need advice on the new hard disk for Satellite A60 302

    I want a new hard drive in my laptop (Satellite A60-302) t. This is -, 1596,736,00.html drive, to adapt to the laptop?

  • Need new hard disk for Equium A100


    I want to replace the 80 GB HDD of my A100 for something big.
    I'm guessing it's a SATA, I'll need?

    Nobody knows what is the greatest, my laptop can handle without any performance?
    Just to confirm that it is a satellite A100-027

    Also, I literally get out the old one, stick in the new and then load Windows XP on it? Is it really as simple as that :/?


    Yes, the A100 Equium supports the SATA HDD controller and so you will need a SATA 2.5 HARD disk!

    > Also, I literally get out the old one, stick in the new and then load Windows XP on it? Is it really as simple as that :/?
    Yes, the upgrade of the HARD drive is not difficult.
    In most cases, you will need to remove the HDD from the laptop's HARD drive Bay, then switch the HARD drive bracket to the new HARD drive, then insert the new HARD disc again in Notepad.

    That s it.

  • Update hard disk for Satellite 1900 102

    Hi all

    I used to work with a Toshiba Satellite 1900 102 since July 2002 and March my hard drive has stopped working (maybe it was time).
    Where can I buy records 2.5 "that this series of satellites can be supported?

    What is the maximum capacity (in GB) laptop that recognizes the old man?

    Thanks for all your help!


    2.5 hard drives can be bought anywhere I think then, either you contact an authorized service provider or you visit your favorite computer store.

    I think that the Satellite 1900 limits the 28-bit LBA. This would mean that the size of the HARD disk is limited to 128 GB. The maximum capacity is 120 GB that you can use, but I think that 80 GB would be enough according to your amount of files you want to save on the HARD drive.

    If you have any other questions please let us know! :)

  • Update hard disk for Satellite LT55-1NM


    My hard drive from Toshiba Satellite LT55-1NM died (he was a 640 GB)

    I want to take the oportunuty to upgrade a higher capacity drive,

    Are up to are my options? Type of disc? Max capacity etc.

    Thanks in advance!


    What you need is the new SATA HDD. You can of course buy HARD drive with more capacity.
    In any case, I think you should maybe buy SSD and increase the performance of your laptop. I upgraded my Satellite phone with SSD and it runs much faster than before. I don't know if the capacity is so important to you, but I think the 500GB SSD would be the right solution for you.

  • New update of hard disk for Satellite L670D-102


    I need to get windows 7 on my old hard drive and on my new hard drive update. I can't find "media copy" file/folder. I did a windows disc when I arrived as he forced me to do but only loads a 'safe' version of windows on the new hd and wonder for other discs.

    Local dealer believes there are 3 back up discs to load up. I tried to save, but it takes more than 7 DVDs and still unfinished when I run out of time. Takes all day to do it. I tried an 'image system' through the windows and that works, but said that the new disk is the same size that the old image of disk system has been removed. Old drive 250 GB I think, new drive is 1 TB. Local dealer said try to reset the computer to the factory and see if "copy media" thread/folder reappears.

    Someone at - it ideas please!

    Message has been modified: the model name added to title

    At first, I must say that you must tell us which model of laptop you have exactly.

    In general the whole situation is pretty simple. Your laptop came with the version of the OS pre-installed (recovery image). Using preinstalled Toshiba media creator you recovery tool can create bootable recovery (DVD or USB) media that you can use for the installation of recovery.

    After HDD just change boot image recovery this recovery media created facility.

    To be honest I do not understand your ad and you wrote all this has created media.

  • Instructions on installing hard disk for Satellite M30 832

    Anyone know how much it would be easy to upgrade my 40 GB hard drive? Ive bought a 80 GB (model MK8025GAS number) and don't really know where to start.


    Open the covers on the bottom of the laptop. If you can get access to the disk in this way, then you can easily replace. But otherwise, it is best to let it be performed by a technician because you must remove half of the laptop.

    I found the information that your device supports 15 GB of HARD drive. Maybe it's the official statement from Toshiba, but that you will be lucky with 20 GB of HARD drive. Try it!

  • Re: Need to Win XP ethernet controller Driver for Satellite A100 PSAA9C

    I upgraded my OS from Windows XP home to Windows XP Professional.

    I am still missing a driver of my device manager ethernet controller.

    I looked on the toshiba site and can't find the driver anywhere.

    What can I do to get my ethernet controller to work?


    > What can I do to get my Ethernet controller to work?
    You need a compatible driver ;)

    OK maybe you need clarification;
    Ethernet controller could be a Lan or WLan card.
    Please check if one of these devices were already installed.

    But in most cases the LAN card is significant and you would need a LAN driver for getting rid of a unknown device in the area to network adapters.

    I found a LAN driver on Toshiba page. That's why I think he couldn't t be a problem to install it.

  • Replacement of disk for satellite A100-991

    The HTS5410 of HARD drive (SATA I) of my Staelitte A100-991 is out of use. I can replace it with any 2.5-inch SATA I or II HDD?
    Thank you


    Yes, I think so.
    The SATA controller supports SATA I or SATA II HDD because it s compatible downwards.
    So, you can use any HARD SATA 2.5 drive.

    In Windows 7, you can get a lot of details by selecting Start, all programs, accessories, System Tools, system information, components, storage disks. It was very similar to Windows XP, but for all information users tend to use Everest or Belarc Advisor for additional information not available. Everest has been best Bellarc advice but they ceased to offer tan updated free version. However, the 2.20 version is always available from third-party sites.

  • I'm using Time Machine (1 TB), works very well, but because full starting to delete previous backups. Can I add another (LaCie 1 TB) HARD disk for backups? If so, how to proceed. Thank you!

    I'm using Time Machine (1 TB), works very well, but because full starting to delete previous backups. Can I add another (LaCie 1 TB) HARD disk for backups? If so, how to proceed. Thank you!

    You can add another drive to accept backups Time Machine... assuming it is correctly formatted for Mac to Mac OS extended (journaled), but things are not exactly "continue."

    You have not indicated if you intend to add the player to the USB port on the Time Capsule, or connect directly to your computer using USB or FireWire connections. Or the other method works, with the option to connect directly to the computer being the faster connection.

    Once the disc is added, you would go in Time Machine preferences (click the "clock" at the top of the screen on your Mac) to add the disk for Time Machine backups and delete the old Time Capsule disk, since backups will go is no longer this destination.

    Since you have a new drive, Time Machine will do a new full backup of your Mac and then go forward with incremental backups.
