  • If I remove the hard drive from my Mac book will find my Mac still works

    One of my buddies and ME are supporting it because im trying to say that if you remove the hard drive of a Macbook, find my Mac no longer works, even if you get a new hard drive and connect it to the Internet. He said, that it only stops working if it is not connected to the internet, and I know it's true, but I want to know if my theory is correct,

    If you remove the HD there is nothing to identify your Mac then FindMyMac.

    To use FindMyMac the Mac must be connected to the internet and FindMyMac must be enabled in system preferences > iCloud. This requires Mac be signed in iCloud.

  • Satellite Pro P300 - remove the HARD drive to make a backup?

    My P300 went to my local store to repair for a network card problem. I thought it was just a software problem or driver, so I wasn't worried that my machine is still under warranty. After investigation, they stated that they could not resolve the issue, so would be to reformat and reinstall the OS, they thought they should solve the problem.

    To my horror, I found that they had broken the seals of guarantee and open to the top of the machine. They claimed the only way to save the P300 before reformat it, is to remove the HARD drive!
    Is this true?
    (It turns out that a broken chip is to blame, but because they violated the warranty, Toshiba will not touch!)

    Can anyone say about this the removal of HD to support it please?


    Normally it of not necessary to restore the factory settings with to remove the HARD drive but don t you worry about this. The laptop can still be opened from a service provider authorized without losing the warranty.

    I also put t know why they did, perhaps they have checked the material. It would be possible because they have professional diagnostic tools.

    But interesting to know whether or not your problem is now resolved?

  • Satellite P10 804: how to remove the HARD drive?

    I would like to remove the internal hard disk of 60 GB of my satellite P10 804 and replace it with a bigger drive, but cannot find a way to enter in the case of removing the HARD drive.

    Does anyone have the details on how to do?


    To my knowledge, the HARD drive must be placed under the optical dirve.
    To remove the HARD drive, first remove the battery and the optical drive, and then follow the steps below:

    1. remove the four black screws that anchor the shield of aluminum covering the HARD drive and pull it out.
    2. gently pull on the HARD drive the front panel of the computer to disconnect the system board, then pull it out.
    3. remove the four silver screws that attach the HARD drive to the HARD disk case.

    But be careful. If you have no experience ask someone with more experience in these replacements.

  • Need help to remove the hard drive from a Satellite Pro M10

    Hi, a good will would point me in the right direction. I am trying to remove the HD from a satellite pro M10.
    I discovered the net without success.

    A diagram with being usefully etc.

    kind regards J


    I can't give you a diagram or something, but I can give an indication to take a look on the front left side of your machine. On this corner of the left side under the volume control is a small blanket where the HARD drive is in. You need only to unscrew the 2 screws that are accessible when you turn on your machine and and look at the bottom of your machine. Do you know what I mean?

    When you remove these 2 screws, you need to remove the HARD drive by taking some screwdriver flat-blade and paste between the disc cover and HARD case. Then carefully remove the cover of the HARD drive and you can recover the HARD drive with the cover and exchange it.

    Voila, your hard drive West. It s is not difficult at all.

    But if you still have some questions then request.

    Unfortunately this Toshiba device it unknown to me and I don t have found all documents on the replacement HARD drive.

    1.) under the disk HARD is placed at the bottom of the unit and you should only remove the cover of the HARD drive.

    2.) HARD drive is placed in the Notepad. In this case you will need to Remover the keyboard and some covers to replace the HARD drive

    I am interested to remove the hard drive from the laptop so that I can save the data.

    Anyone know where I can get instructions on where it is located?

    I looked at the 'User Guide' section of the Web site, but it does not contain the information.

    At the moment the machine is blue Windows to load testing.


    In my opinion, we must open Notepad.
    In this case, it of necessary to carefully remove the covers, the keyboard and the screws that put him at the bottom of the unit.
    Please Note: you will lose the warranty if you open Notepad.
    But if your warranty is still valid, you should ask the ASP for the instruction or detailed information.

  • U430 power and key flashes after removing the hard drive

    Hello world

    I just bought a U430 touch and try to put in an (Sandisk Ultra Plus 256 GB) SSD.

    I followed the instructions on how to open the lid and remove the hard drive as described in the maintenance manual. I created a USB startup disk and changed the order of boot from USB. But when I try to press the Novo key to then proceed with the installation of Windows, the power light and keyboard just begins to Flash slowly. I tried it turn instead to use the Novo key and the same thing happens.

    I tried to do it with and without the key USB is plugged. I also then put the old hard drive and put the top back on and he always does. I thought maybe that just means that it is in mode 'sleep' but by pressing the power or by pressing the keys does not help.

    Can someone help me please?

    Thank you.
