Satellite L300 - cannot install Microsoft updates after replacing HARD drive

I am repairing a Satellite L300, which had a dead HARD drive. I replaced death 160 GB of HDD with a 500 GB WD, then used the recovery disks to install Windows Vista SP1 at the exit of the State of the box.

Now, Windows update does not work, won't install autonomous not of Vista SP2 I downloaded, MS Security Essentials moved there also.
Then I borrowed a 160 GB of work and went through the same process and everything works fine.

To make it work with a 160 GB HARD drive, but not a 500 GB HARD drive. Why?

> ... Standalone Vista SP2 I downloaded will not be installed
Usually after installing recovery image, you have just to connect laptop to internet and after a short period of time, you will get messages about available Windows updates. Just install the offered updates process automatic Waterer and install important updates only.

Let the system to install all the updates and don t force the installation of some own downloaded stuff.
Last month I've updated HARD drive (320 GB I think) and installed Win7 on friends L300 and I didn't noticed any problem here.

    Hello

    Sorry if I write this too late. :(

    He's old enough for laptop and I don't know with certainty what is the card inside, but all notebooks with wireless network inside card have a small stick of Wi - Fi at the bottom with number of WLAN card. Using this number in Google, you can identify the card.

    Anyway, there is not a lot of possibilities because on the Toshiba support page there are two WLAN drivers listed for your model of laptop. Try to install both of them. One of them must be good.

    Good luck!

  • Satellite C670D-109 - installation of recovery after replacing HARD drive image

    Hello

    I have a problem to restore my laptop.
    My hard drive is not working, I do not have the recovery disks, but I managed to save the HDD Recovery folder in a partition of DATA.

    Once installed the new hard drive, it is possible to recover my original without the cd, but with a pen drive usb installation?

    > Once installed the new hard drive, it is possible to recover my original without the cd, but with a pen drive usb installation?
    Unfortunately, you will not be able to start the recovery image installation. The data saved on unusable USB on this path. It must be the startup created by Toshiba recovery disc creator device
    You can only install recovery image using the recovery disk.

    If you n t have it you can order a new one.

  • Satellite Pro 2100: How do I reinstall the OS after replacing HARD drive

    I have a Toshiba SP2100 and I want to replace the hard drive, but I don't have any recovery CD
    So, how can I put the o/s back on?

    Try to connect the external HARD drive to the computer via the USB port and try to copy all content from the internal HARD disk external HARD drive. Then you could try to insert the external HARD drive in the laptop.
    But I've never tried this procedure and don t know if it will work.

    But usually after replacing HARD drive you should boot from the Boot CD as recovery CD or the original CD of Microsoft Windows.
    After the installation of clean Windows OS, you can visit the Toshiba drivers and you can download and install the drivers of Toshiba and utilities.

  • Satellite 1410 714 extremely slow after replacing HARD drive

    Hello

    I have a Satellite 1410-714 which has had a hard drive failure. I replaced the drive, but now the computer is extremely slow. Windows has been reinstalled, it was really slow too much and now it takes minutes for windows to start.

    I suspect that something might have broken on the motherboard and the hard disk. I checked mobo replacement parts, but have not found anything for-714, so a 1410 mobo compatible? This model has a processor celeron 1.8.

    Thanks for help.

    Hannu

    Hello

    I can t think the motherboard is broken after replacing HARD drive.
    I suggest updating the BIOS first. Maybe your old BIOS have a few problems with the most recent HARD drive.
    Please check site driver Toshiba for the latest version of BIOS.

    The only way to be sure is to open it up and see if the touchpad cable was disconnected during the upgrade of the hard drive. That's my bet. Easy to forget when you're winding. You don't provide complete model number, but many of the recent models Pavilion 17 require removal of the cover together to get hard disk that requires disconnection of the touchpad cable.

  • satellite 2520cdt is very slow after replacing HARD drive

    My Satellite 2520 CDT is the HARD Mk 4309 MAST 4.3 GB default disk. I replaced the with the Toshiba MK 2016 GAP of 20 GB.
    I use Windows 98 since the original installation CD. The laptop is now very slow, it takes minutes to start programs, etc.

    I installed the latest BIOS with no improvement. Probably the laptop cannot manage the size of the HARD drive.

    Is there a solution?

    Hello

    I had the same suggestion. I think that the large size of the HARD disk is responsible to slowly start performance. But I wonder why BIOS recognize the HARD drive?
    However, try to defragment the HARD drive.

    You need to create the own recovery in the past disc!
    This recovery disk allows you to install the Toshiba image after the HARD drive is dead or has been replaced.

    In case you have not created this disk, it is possible to order this support:

    Who told you that you can install the image of the HARD drive recovery?
    In s user guides document is clearly described how recovery your machine and it is written that you must create recovery DVDs.

    Anyway, a long time ago, I saw a thread interesting any similar problem. I n t have the time to search now, but you can use the advanced search option and try to find it. I think it must be somewhere in the forum of recovery category options.

  • Cannot install windows XP it said hard drives are not connected & windows can not find the hard drives

    I got an asus computer notebook windows vista, upgrade from vista to windows 7, now I'm not able to do a clean install of windows xp, when I try to install XP, it says that hard drives are not connected & windows cannot find not the hard drives, so once again installed windows 7, is there a way to overcome this problem Why do I get the message windows xp does not detect hard drives? I even formatted the hard drive & tried to install Xp, but still, I get the same message.

    The answers will be appreciated...

    Thank you

    Because the Windows XP installation CD does not have the necessary disk controller drivers.  You will need a floppy drive to provide the drivers of controller for the installation program, or you will need to burn a CD of Windows XP with the controller drivers slipstreamed into the installation.  A CD of Windows XP with SP2 included may have the necessary drivers.

    Hi wonder if anyone can help mei have a L300D_242 toshiba satellite that broke down and I bought a new hard drive for it because the original was not good.

    Does anyone know how to install a new hard drive and windows on this laptop?

    Thank you

    Hello

    What Vista did you use? TOSHIBA recovery disk or a disk of Microsoft Vista?
    Format you the new HARD disk before starting the installation of Vista?

    It is possible that the new HARD drive is not good and therefore the system can not be installed properly
    You can check the drive HARD using a tool called Drive Fitness Test download this as its a freeware program and test your HARD drive.
