Quality/compatibility of the new hard drive for my laptop

I have a toshiba satellite A105-S2194. I went online to get a replacement from the hard drive. The guy who I spoke to suggested that I get the data of 1 TB 2.5 5400 RPM. I asked if this was no exaggeration for my computer and if she would work with her. He assured me he would. I have windows 7 to load on this subject. My question is. It is true that he did and work in my laptop? It is with Fed - ex delivery and need to know whether to install or send back

The SATA standard is so clearly defined that virtually any disk 2.5 "will work on a laptop. High speed drives (7200 RPM +) could draw in theory more current that might have been specified, even if the newer readers are more effective. With regard to the compatibility of the BIOS limitation of size should not enter up to 2 TB

Even if the laptop is quite old it supports disks more large, Toshiba lists only readers that they mounted but Crucial list upgrades up to 1 TB.

  • Correct installation of the new hard drive for Windows 7

    Have a disk hard fatal crash with Dell OEM Windows 7on, so I bought a new hard drive compatible system and have my old system Win 7/recovery of data on a memory stick. It's been years that last I formatted, partitioned and installed an operating system on a new hard drive and I totally forgot how it's done. Vaguely remember some DOS commands were required to work out of BIOS (?). Can anyone list the individual measures to be taken, assuming that the hard drive is physically installed and turned on? It would be a great help!

    Unless this stick memory has on her installation files as well, you cannot reinstall win7 on the new hard drive

    You will need the DVD / or the ISO of Win7.

    And no you do not need BACK. Just the dvd or ISO / to boot from. Then you can format / partition in the configuration screen

  • HP EliteBook 8440p: Best boot option after installing the new hard drive and put to memory.

    I just installed the new hard drive for my laptop and will get the cards of two memory installed tomorrow. I would like advice on what would be the best option to start when the laptop for the first time I'm on fire.

    I have the original Windows HP recovery disk came with the computer.

    I also have a recovery disc and a system image on disks created with Macrium Reflect two days ago.

    I also have a recovery disc and a system image is created on an external hard drive Seagate two days ago. (I've read mixed reviews on these is currently working as a media of rescue with Win7 Pro).

    I guess if I use the HP recovery disc I would be then just use any system image I prefer, without the recovery disk. Anyone know if it makes a difference at all which method to use?

    bozzle73

    My recommendation would be to restore using the image of MR (Macrium Reflect) you did.

    But then, I used Mr. on all my PCs for years and am a big fan - having had it Miss ever in the years and years of use.

    You will need boot from the boot of MR media (you did that right) and, if you photographed all the required partitions for the operating system, restore it on the new drive should take a few minutes, and when this is done, you reboot and everything should be OK.

    Good luck

  • Inability to read the new HARD drive

    I bought a new hard drive for my laptop. After installing it, I didn't get the message none found a fixed drive. I updated the bios from the Toshiba site and the same message is still there.

    I also tried the drive in another laptop. It has been recognized correctly, so I formatted one installed Windows XP Pro top. It worked ok so I tried again in my laptop but message saying put system disk and press any key. So I put XP disc in it starts the installation starts to transfer files and doesn't give the message no hard drive found so it still does not find the hard drive.

    Please can someone help?

    Hi Ken

    It will be interesting to know what model of laptop you have. Obviously the HARD drive is not properly recognized. On this path, it is not easy to say why, but perhaps there is problem with the contacts and the HARD drive cannot be recognized by BIOS.

    Good bye

  • HP TouchSmart 420 - 1000 t CTO: need help with the installation of windows on a new hard drive for HP TouchSmart 420-1000 t CTO (bought in 2012)

    My hard drive is failng in my computer I get the message that "the failure of hard drive" is imminent for several months now.  I did just recovery disks after I bought my computer and that you have ordered a new hard drive.

    I thought that the part of the setup of windows on a portion of the current hard disk that I need to replace.

    I want to just make sure that if I can restore the windows completely and that all programmes provided with the computer are on the recovery discs I want to do it myself - so I need to know I'm doing it correctly!

    Thank you very much.

    Kimberly

    PS I found this web page below and I want to just make sure that it applies to me:

    http://support.HP.com/us-en/product/HP-TouchSmart-420-1000-desktop-PC-series/5146292/model/5155758/d...

    This link in the post seems to apply to the situation.  If you have already completed the defined recovery disc then it should just be a matter of running the recovery disc after the new hard drive is installed.  The recovery disk set will be "restoring windows completely and all programs included with the computer".  Be aware that all other items that were installed or personal data will not be restored.  When replacing the hard drive, do not buy a disc exceeds the limit of 2 TB, such as published in the SPECS for TouchSmart 420-1000 t CTO.

    If your system already has Windows installed and activated 10 follow my instructions here to directly download and reinstall clean Windows 10:

    http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/a-clean-install-of-Windows-10/Windows-10-clean-reinstallation-via-bootable-USB-from-ISO/

    Looks like you're in this scenario.

    Note Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 editions are specific. If your system came with Windows 8.1/10 unilingual homepage, Windows 8.1/10 will not be activated.

    Unfortunately there is no clear marker for end users to determine the edition so my advise is to try first to try Windows 10 Home, if she does not activate Windows 10 unilingual homepage.

    Get a SSD for optimal performance.

    Dell have updated drivers for Windows 10 pilots (WT64a) system:

    See installing the driver recommended order:

    http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/2015/09/27/driver-installation-order-Windows-10/

    If Windows 10 was not enabled you must reinstall Windows 8.1 and then upgrade. Follow my instructions here:

    Using the Dell recovery disks to reinstall?

    The origonal drive failed?

    If you are using a real MS win dvd during the first part of the installation it can not find a drive or ask a driver, then the driver is obtained from Dell, specific to your model, its likely the driver sata, you need to download to say a USB and then point to this file when the installation application the third-party driver.

  • Satellite L305D-S5881 does not recognize the new HARD drive

    Ok. I've had this laptop for a while now.
    It crashed recently. So, I tried to start it up.
    I got "Winload.exe missing or damaged".

    Fortunately, I found an answer to this!
    I got the Vista installation disc and inserted.
    I had this "PAGE_ERROR_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". I fixed too. Stick of 1 GB of RAM to my computer was bad.

    So I replaced it. And during the installation, it hangs. And beeps and undesirable.
    So I thought it was my hard drive. I have a new. (http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/adet.to?poid=431567 please TAKE a LOOK BEFORE RESPONDING).

    I (try) to install and it does nothing.
    I turn it on and it goes to this page with as my enthernet info. Then I go into the BIOS and it appears. I think I could install it wrong.

    Any help?

    Hello

    I think that the new HARD drive is not recognized, because you have not installed the SATA drivers!
    The new mobile phones support the new SATA controller and especially the drivers are not included in the Windows operating system.

    So, you must first include the SATA drivers before install you the operating system.
    AFAIK the L305D supports an AMD and ATI chipset and SATA drivers must be placed in the ATI graphics driver package.

    On the other hand, you could install the operating system without the use of SATA drivers.
    I think that the BIOS must contain the SATA mode option. Usually it s set to AHCI. Pass this option in compatibility mode and you should be able to install the operating system.

    Cheers mate
