Satellite A60 - 302 slow hard disk?
I bought my laptop for two weeks, I have a little problem with it. When I try to watch movies or listen to MEPs on my laptop files is sometimes the sound is echoing or stop for a second. I thought that it causes the slow hard disk. Anyone have the same problem with this laptop?
I have try the last its alc-250 card driver, but it has not helped. Any idea?
I want a new hard drive in my laptop (Satellite A60-302) t. This is - http://www.seagate.com/cda/products/discsales/marketing/detail/0, 1596,736,00.html drive, to adapt to the laptop?
Answer to this question can give just anyone who has the same unit and tested it with the same HARD drive. Problem is that there is no exact specification on the latest BIOS updates and no one can say with certainty whether or not he will support.
I have a laptop SATELLITE A60-302, and I had a problem with cd player. I want to format the computer (WIN XP) and I wanned to ask if I can format the computer not by the cd player but another way as disk on key or something...
Your best bet might be trying to use an external CD/DVD drive to install Windows XP (must confirm that your laptop can boot from USB CD/DVD). I would not recommend it otherwise because they are pretty complicated and you will encounter other issues.
I have an old Toshiba Satellite A60. The HARD drive died recently and I'm looking to replace it. I want to know what disk drive specification, the Toshiba Satellite A60 can support. It originally had a MK3025GAS
HDD2196B ZE01 S 30 GB 2.5 "drive.
1. I would like to replace it with a larger capacity drive. What is the capacity (GB) and speed the A60 can bear?
2. do I need to replace it with a toshiba drive or can I use any other 2.5 "drive (Seagate, Fujitsu, etc...)?
As far as I know the old Satellite A60 supports one IDE controller.
This means that you must use a 2.5 IDE (ATA) HARD drive.
As far as I know the older IDE controller are limited to 128 GB with 28-bit LBA (address logic bit).
Then maybe you should start with a 120 GB HDD, which must be compatible, even if the controller would be limited to 128 GB.
But standard ATA-6 (also called TONGA-100) does support 48 bit LBA in this case, it is not limited to 128 GB. You can check controller HARD drive using tools such as SANDRA or Everest Home Edition freeware soft for the information on the controller built in the A60.
> 2. Do I need to replace it with a toshiba drive or can I use any other disk 2.5 "
You can use any HARD drive that meets the requirements (IDE, 2.5)
I have a Satellite A60-302 (PSA60E-00J030HU) and theoretically there is no MiniPCI slot in the computer (at least it does not mention the Hungarian manual), but the online manual (preinstalled on your laptop) refers to a cover on the bottom as "Cover WLAN", that material incidentally doesn't not part of this model. (And the part of the motherboard under this coverage is not something that resembles a slot MiniPCI, well that according to the English manual and specifications online to some Toshiba Page, I found in the Linux knowledge base, it must be part of this config.)
Allright, there is no MiniPCI, I said, I should buy a PCMCIA CardBus WiFi adapter. I thought I'll check on the toshiba online store, to be sure, I'm buying quality products. But when I choose 'Specific product Options' and choose my config, the Bank's research concludes _only_ MiniPCI solutions for my laptop, which theoretically (and physically) does not support.
Is it not a bit strange? :)
beginning of the "742" series machine was delivered with Wifi (Build-in).
But even if a Mini PCI card would fit in your Machine, the problem is that you have no generation of antenna in.
These are normally inside the display cover.
So the best way is to buy a Wifi USB key. His fabulous work but not manufactured by Toshiba.
Running perfectly with my A60-102...
I'm Maria of the Hungary. I brought a computer Toshiba laptop Satellite A60-302, because I wanted something to burn and read CD and DVD. In my view, that can read DVDs and CDs and burn CDs. I wish that mobile knowledge really cannot burn DVDs, or I couldn't do. Please help me and write me as soon as possible by e-mail.
I search in the internet and found that the Satellite A60 302 only supports playback of CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD-R/RW/RAM and for CD-ROM and CD - RW writing because it is a COMBO drive!
The drive is set up and could not be changed by a technician!
Here is some additional information:
CD-ROM, CD - R 24xMax
CD - RW 12xMax
DVD - R, DVD - RW 4xMax
CD - R 24xMax
CD - RW 4xMax
Bye and Merry Christmas
I have connected my Satellite A60-302 to my TV using brand also SCART S-VIDEO AND TWIN PHONO LICENSE that I bought from maplins. Transfers of image and sound on TV when I press Fn + F5 buttons but the image is in black and white, the sound is ok.
I tried the color on the tv settings but it makes no difference, any help would be appreciated
The color on the TV settings won't help. Check please the port on your TV settings. As far as I know by the use of the pot from S-video to TV, it must be enabled properly to get the color. I put t know exactly how it works with cable SCART, but check out several channels if you should enable the option of scanning on your TV.
I also hope that you bought the product of high quality.
Hi there, 1st time user here
I bought a Sodimm DDR 333 mhz 1gig of ram card for my Satellite A60-302 and installed today - but without success
The laptop turns on but the screen remains black and then the laptop turns off, it also emitted a continuous beep. I thought it was because the RAM was too, but he can handle 1280MB of RAM and 256 enjoys so it should be able to handle
RAM has not been affected by the static-hands then someone can help?
Thank you very much
You re right. The unit should be able to handle the module memory 1024Mo in one location.
I have only one explanation why the laptop will not work after the upgrade.
Either the module is not compatible and not right or it s simply corrupt.
I recommend using the modules recommended by Toshiba.
PC2700 256 MB (PA3311U - 1 M 25)
PC2700 512 MB (PA3312U - 1 M 51)
1024MO PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G)
PA3313U-1M1G is a module of memory-SO DIMM 200-pin DDR 333 MHz PC2700.
I have a Toshiba laptop: Satellite A60-302 and I have a problem with the cd player. It can read DVDs and records I buy but it will not read burned discs (even the ones I burned with the portable computers own burner). Only from time to time, he will read a burned disc.
I tried to clean the eye of laser of cd players, but it did not help.
Anyone know what could be the problem?
This sounds like the CD burner doesn't burn CD correctly.
You suggested that you used different types of CD.
In the user manual, you will find a list of compatible media.
These media has been tested and it works correctly.
But if this happens with all CD, so possibly the drive cannot work properly and only a replacement would solve that problem.
What capacity of hard drive used in this laptop
Satellite A60 is a little older series and I think that the laptop supports the IDE HDD controller
Perhaps the HARD disk controller support for only 28 bit LBA, which means that only 128 GB would be recognized by the BIOS.
I think a 120 GB HDD should work but I'm not sure if the biggest hard drives would be supported due to mentioned m 28-bit LBA
Hi, I have a SATELLITE M40X-189, I would like to replace the hard drive and would like if possible some recommendations!
I know I need an ide/pata and I currently have a hard disk of 40 GB hitachi 5400 rpm installed. The memory is just what came installed originally, (512 MB, no upgrade).
So what size I can up to?
I have a lot of music/photos and video to change so must also size decent 80 GB would be enough?
I really don't use it for anything other than that, and also the navigation on the internet. Although I often have a few programs running at the same time which causes problems... freeze, (in particular I tunes) and generally slow running.
I'm confident on the physical replacement, and I know how to clone my old drive hard etc, but just need some info about the size and speed and if possible
a recommendation of the manufacturer. Just worried about incompatibility really issues.
Also, if you think I should install more memory, which size and make and model may recommend.
Thank you in advance!
First he must know that this question have been posted a lot of time in the forum.
If you want to use the search option, then you will find this thread for example:
Is the M40X series supports the IDE controller and I think that you need a 2.5 IDE HDD.
The old ide controllers are limited to 128 GB with 28-bit LBA
However, you can take an 80 GB or 120 GB HARD drive and it should work fine
I'm new here.
I did another post. In short, I'm expert enough in Toshiba Satellite laptops, but my new, Satellite P70-A-11V, a portable high professional range, had some problems. It came with Windows 8, which I upgraded to 8.1. Unfortunately, the degraded system so bad that all pendrives made plant. I have connected my Toshiba camcorder, and it also crashed the laptop.
The search indexing was not working outside the C: drive. The pointer of an optical mouse has started to freeze for seconds on the screen.
This last I believe was due to the low power USB ports.
So, I really had no choice after 2 restorations system total and installed Windows 7 Enterprise x 64 SP1. Operating system almost seems ok, but I still have problems, and one of them is that but I'm trying to install the accelerometer utilities, there is no driver.
I tried that Windows 8 x 64, but just, it does not appear on the list of services.
I found that the utility of the HARD disk protection was also arrested, I searched this forum and someone said that the Intel Rapid Storage technology must be uninstalled. I did and my HDD is running... but I don't know if it's effective!
I remember with the 8.1 Windows, the utility always shown a message on the upper right: Vibration is detected, the drive is temporarily closed, etc..
She has been associated with some high tone sound indicating that the drive has been effectively stopped. Now I can shake it off the laptop, but no message appears, there is no sound.
I checked all the boxes on the interface of protection of HARD drive to indicate if there are vibrations, but so far nothing. The drive protection is in place and running, but in the absence of use of the accelerometer, the protection of disk HARD just don't know when to act.
Am I wrong? Can Toshiba fix this?
All responses are greatly appreciated.
Toshiba drivers and tools available to win 8 or 8.1 to win are not entirely comparable with Toshiba available for Win 7 OS software.
Some drivers and tools that are available to win 8 don t exist for the Win 7 system.
For example; commercial accelerometer or HDD Protection Utility released in particular to win 8 / Win system 8.1 and are not available for Win 7.
But for Win 7, you can find the Toshiba VAP (value added package) and this package installs a range of important services that are an essential component of the Windows system and this PPV will perform the other original programming TOSHIBA works correctly.
Therefore, you must install the VAP as Toshiba's first tool to ensure that other software such as HDD/SSD Alert Utility or PC Health Monitor
I have a model of L50-a-19n satellite.
The hard drive it is HGST Travelstar 5 K 1000 750 GB, SATA 6 Gbps (HTS541075A9E680/0J22412).
On Web site of the manufacturer and as Aida64 diagnostic software the hard drive is named SATA-III 600 MB/s.
But when I run the Crystaldiskinfo software or simillar, it is said that the taken and current transfer mode supported SATA/300.
Why is it like that?
Is this some sort of software limmitation?
In the Bios, I turned on the performance mode.
HARD drive supports SATA 6 Gbit/s, but the portable controller is probably limited to SATA II (3 Gb/s)
If the HARD disk controller does not support SATA III, HARD drive performance will be limited.
I have an old Satellite 300CDT, I can't support it appears not yet listed on the Toshiba site.
I have added a new hard drive and bought a 40 GB drive, but it will only show 4 GB per partition.
I want 2 partitions that I have and in fdisk I said 50% for each but it only shows 4GB each even though it says support big readers.
I'm running Windows Me.
Is it possible for an old laptop of this type to display the size of the hard drive.
Did you use the FAT32 or NTFS?
I use partition Magic 8 to do and to manage the partitions on the HARD disk.
In my opinion, you should try this program. I think that using the PM8 you will get the total size of the HARD drive.
one of our phones, to a new hard drive. What toshiba product are compatible to our Toshiba Satellite 2410 404?
The problem is that Toshiba provides official information on compatible HARD disk HARD disk sizes.
But I've studied a bit in the internet and the following four sizes of hard drives must be supported:
20 GB; 30 GB; 40 and possibly the 60 GB.
Perhaps more info:
Must HARD disk supports the improved IDE ""(ATA-5) EIDE interface ".
