  • 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.

  • How to remove the optical drive

    I have a dv7 - 4083cl.  The BD drive recently stop working and I need to replace it.  I found a thread further on which linked to a video demonstration of the removal of the disc on a Dell computer, but my problem is that there is no screws holding on the back plate of my model and for the life of me I can't find any detention buttons/clips out the disc.

    What Miss me?

    You may need to register again to use the library and give him 30 seconds to load. Navigate to the optical drive in the left column.

    The video shows the cover of the hard drive must be removed first to access the screw now the optical drive in place. Once the screw is removed, it takes just.

  • Satellite Pro L10: How to remove the user password


    I work for a school and we have a bunch of laptops Satellite Pro L10. I put a supervisor on all laptops password think this problem would be solved (I didn't enter a password each time the machines are enabled), but one of our students seems to have found its way to the HWSetup utility in Control Panel and could save a user password on one of the laptops.

    Alarmingly there seems to be no way to clear the password of the user, even though I have the supervisor password. I can get the BIOS as a supervisor, but the definition of a user password option is grayed out. Can anyone provide a solution for my problem?

    Thank you


    Well, I think that this problem could be solved by updating the BIOS to the version 2.60 or greater.
    But the problem is that the password has already been fixed.

    I read in the paper of Toshiba that all passwords must be removed before starting the BIOS updates.
    That's why I think it would be advisable to contact Toshiba service partner to remove first the user password, and then update the BIOS.

    You know it's very risky to update the BIOS of the device when the user or any password has been set.
    It of possible that the BIOS update procedure will be interrupted if the password exists.

  • Satellite U400-22z - how to remove the HARD drive recovery partition


    My satellite u400-22z came with a big "hdd recovery" folder on the drive hard - yes I know what it does.
    but the unbearably awful version of windows vista that came with the machine made me decide that, in the event of failure of the system, I'm still will not install this failure of the attempt of an operating system.
    So I do not have these data recovery.

    So those ~ 11 GB of junk sitting on my drive is bugging me, I can't delete the folder HDDRecovery, it is somehow protected against deletion.

    How can I work around that?

    Also, is it safe or can I make it safe, to use the small apparently hidden partition (that's recovery also?) I found, which is IIRC ~ 2 GB or larger, for own purposes, without destroying my current installation of windows?

    Thanks in advance,


    If you have a recovery disk and you do not want to store the folder in hard drive hard disk recovery, you can remove it.

    > I can't remove the folder HDDRecovery, it is somehow protected against deletion.

    Remove you it as you always do to remove all files on your system.

  • Satellite Pro A10 - how to upgrade the RAM?

    How I'm sure that when I go buy the memory that it adapts to the motherboard. ?
    Sorry for my bad English

    Is it enough to know that its DDR motherboard?

    Hi kichenin

    Until you buy new RAM modules, you should check out what specifications you need and how much memory is taken in charge.

    I checked the specs on the Web from Toshiba site and your laptop supports up to 1 GB of RAM. The specification for the RAM is PC2100 DDR - RAM. You can also buy some RAM with higher specifications (PC2700 or PC3200), but they will operate at the speed of the PC2100.

    Recommend brand for Kingston memory for example.

    To remove the optical drive, he can just remove the 2 screws that are placed at the bottom of the unit on the side of the road. Then you can simply drag the drive outward to disconnect the connector on the system board.
    The player is placed in the plastic frame. You must therefore also this framework for a new disk.
    Remove the plastic of the unit frame, only to remove 4 screws.

    I want to update my CD - RW drive for a dvd burner, but can't get the old drive of the laptop.
    I removed the screw on the underside of the laptop, but it won't come out.

    Do we know if there is any other screws received a way to remove the drive of any help greatly.

    It's very strange that you can not remove the optical drive as DVD - ROM drive Assembly is secured with just a screw on the underside. If the screw is removed, you just pull all of the DVD-ROM drive.

    There is no other screws.
