Replacement of the hard disk for Equium A60-155

I need to replace the hard drive in my equium A60-155. I need to know what is compatible with this model and if the brand of the drive is important in compatibility. For example should be a drive hard toshiba or is it possible to others.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



You n t need to install a HDD in particular of Toshiba. You can also use disk of another company.

It is important that you use a HARD drive with support for hardware specifications.

I found these useful discussions on the replacement of the HDD on the Satellite and Equium A60:

Satellite A60 is very similar to the A60 Equium and so the two series use the same hard disks

  • Replacement of the HARD disk on Equium A100-337 - installation of operating system recovery disc?


    I have a Toshiba Satellite A100 - 337 Vista Premium. Unfortunately, the HARD drive died in it and it is out of warranty.

    I have the recovery CD and it have used before so know this works.

    I intend to put in a HARD drive replacement, but looking around, I can get a much better deal on something like maxtor/WD/seagate.
    It would be a problem for the recovery CD?

    In addition, the original disk is 60 GB - but if possible, while I replace in any case, I like to put in a bigger. What worries me is if the recovery CD is for 60 GB image pre - and then the rest of a larger HARD drive would be just wasted space? (if indeed it would even work in the first place)

    Someone else put in a brand/different size of HDD and used the successfully recovery CD? I have to admit not knowing much about how does the recovery process, pointers on that would be appreciated also.

    See you soon.

    A different size will be fine. Not sure about the different makes it well, but as far as I know, as long as it has the same interface as the original HARD disk, and then you'll be fine.

    A Yes, the recovery works on a more than 60 GB HARD drive.

    I hope this helps.

  • access all information on the hard disk for all users.

    I tried to set up a link today from my new laptop computer Windows 7 my most top of desktop running vista.  The liaison program stated that the administrator on my old computer was only a temporary user.  I tried to set up the account as a permanent user without realizing that it would replace the current account.  I have now no access to programs from hard drive of the main user I was using.  I was wondering if there is anything I can do to access the hard disk with this user and import files?  I forgot almost all programs appear on the computer but open to anything.

    Hi kismet.

    1. What do you mean by link program?

    2. What have you tried to do?

    3. how many accounts do you currently on the computer and what are they?

    4. what happens when you try to access the files on the hard drive?

    It seems that you do not have permissions to access the files on the hard drive.

    I suggest that take you the files and folder try to access.

    To take ownership of a folder

    (a) right click on the folder you want to take control and then click Properties.

    (b) click on the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click the owner tab.

    (c) click on Edit. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    (d) click on the name of the person you want to give to the property.

    (e) If you want that person to be the owner of the files and subfolders in this folder, select the check box Replace owner subcontainers and objects .

    (f) click OK.

    Troubleshoot "access denied" when opening files or folders

    I hope this helps!

  • Try to migrate from the hard disk for ssd drive

    Hello, 4 days ago I bought dell inspiron with windows 8.1 5748 and a 1 TB hard drive.

    I also bought samsung 250 GB of ssd drive 840EVO to replace the disk of 1 TB of the laptop. I cloned the HARD disk drive and restored the image in the ssd drive and when I mounted the SDS disc and shot to the top of the laptop I got an error that it cannot detect a drive... Press F2 to enter setup F5 for diagnostics and F1 to reboot.

    First I made sure to rise properly. After I checked I entered the bios where I noticed that the drive is recognized in the details of the system. The model was correct, the capasity as well. Fashion was ahci.

    I ran the diagnostics and they couldn't locate a drive.

    So, is this an incompatibility? I checked for updates to the bios and I see I m to date on that. The player is surelly ok as I have tested on another pc...

    What can I do?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Add1ctiv3,

    We recommend that you use the recovery disks that are you ready when you got your system to restore the image of the original on the SSD hard drive. Since they have the same size, it should work without problem.

  • Capacity of the hard disk for NX9030


    I have a laptop HP Compaq NX9030. The hard disk starts to show errors so I intend to replace it. Does anyone know if the laptop has a limited capacity for replacement hard drives?

    Thank you


    You have the Intel 855 chipset. In order to launch a hard drive larger than 137 GB, you need help for 48-bit Large Block Addressing in the chipset, BIOS and operating system. I find contradictory information on the ability of the chipset 855 doing of 48bits LBA. I also wonder if ever taken HP worth of produce a BIOS that would make 48 bit LBA in this model being the biggest hard drive offered 60 gigs. In other words, I think you should assume 120 GB is size max hard drive you can use and the only way I can think to prove otherwise is to buy the largest disk and install it. Windows XP Sp1a and superior does not large drives.

  • Increase the capacity of the hard disk for VM


    I use ESX 4.0 with vSphere 4.0.

    When there is no snapshots more I would like to increase the capacity of the hard disk of the virtual machine in the menu to change settings / Hard disk. There is MS Windows Srv 2008 R2 64-bit installed.

    What is the right way to do it? Operating system, there is no problem with this increased disc? Primary partition will automatically increase as or what I have to do it myself later?

    There should not be problems with the guest operating system when you increase the size of the virtual disk. After the increase in size in the settings of the virtual machine, you need to resize the NTFS partition in the VM Windows 2008 disk management.


  • No hard drive on Equium A60-155


    I inherited the estate of a parent a Toshiba Equium A60-155 (model without PSA67E-00300C8J)
    It came without any hard drive - the coverage is in the original box from Toshiba, but that's all.

    As it was a gift, I don't mind buying a new HARD drive
    But, can someone tell me the technique so I buy the right one please?

    Thank you

    Post edited by: tynyffridd - topic (oops)

    I found the info that this laptop comes with several different hard drive capacities between 40 and 60 GB.
    So, theoretically, you can use any 2.5 with IDE connector up to 80 or even 120 GB.

  • 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.

  • Partition of hard disk for Equium L350 - 10L


    I am a new owner of a L350 - 10L. Loading the files from the laptop, I was told that I had run out of space. Investigate a bit more it seems I drive hard havea partitioned. I think that I expect that the "valorisation" of files are stored on the hard drive. But the size of the partition seems a little odd to me. The disc has a pertition to Vista and a called E:\Data being 54.5 GB in size.

    Question - can I safely reformat the hard drive? Should I run the Setup again. This seems a bit odd. Is there a reason for the size of partition?

    Kind regards

    I have the same laptop. Download GParted LiveCD and boot inside. Then resize partition D:\ lower then resize the partition above C:\ with unallocated space. Is not wipe your data.

    Hope this helps,
