  • Toshiba 1 TB drive external DRIVE not recognized anymore


    I recently bought a HARD Toshiba 1 TB drive that my Qosmio G50 now refuses to recognize.

    Anyone know if I would be able to open it and put the hard drive into one of these sata hdd docking stations I've seen announced?

    The hard drive contains about 500 GB of movies, etc.
    These I need access ASAP, so I don't want to go to the trouble of sending it back to the seller and expects a return, as well as all of the rigmarole that goes with it.

    Kind regards...


    You can try to open the external HARD disk enclosure, but you shouldn't t forget that then you will lose the warranty.
    So think about it!

    In your case, I would like to send the HARD drive to a service provider authorized. Then you can fix.

    Data on the external HARD disk enclosure but normally should not be stored on the external HARD disk enclosure. I have my data stored on the laptop and an external HARD drive.

  • Can I connect simultaneously on Toshiba laptop to 2 external displays?


    I am interested to know that toshiba laptop currently on offer support 2 external monitors simultaneously (one normal and then as dekstop extended in windows). I'm looking to replace my old configuration of the laptop and a station connected to two external monitors with a resolution of 1280 x 1024.

    I was looking on toshiba websita to

    with Port Replicator Port PA3680U-1PRP then some other laptop port replicator who but not the case on the site I could find if any concrete model supports the dual use of the two (VGA and HDMI or VGA and DVI) port

    I was looking on the the user guide at PA3680U-1PRP Port Replicator rpn = PA3680U & modelFilter = PA3680U-1PRP & SelCategorie = 2756711 & selFamily = 116319

    But even if you find on the file pdf of detailed spec and user guides, there is no information on whether they take in charge simultant output to monitors or not and what is the maximum resolution supported for this.

    As far as I know it is not possible to connect two external displays. I know that you can only use a port. If you want to use two screens you probably external device as Toshiba Dynadock.

  • Computer HP laptop slim 500 GB HARD drive: used for HP laptop HARD drive upgraded to Win 10 Pro with key now stuck after HP Drive Encryption Login

    I bought a portable hard drive used HP for the upgrade of my Lenovo G550 with ugraded CPU with Intel's CORE DUO T9300 2.50 ghz

    (HP hard drive: computer laptop slim drive HARD 500 GB SERIAL ATA DISK DRIVE S/N W627S9NL P/N 756731-001 MFG Seagate Technologies DOM 8 / 2015)

    I was happy to see that the hatd drive had already installed because Windows 7 I had bought already separate legitimate Windows 10 Pro license key for the upgrade. I was able to go online and download the upgrade of Windows 10 and used my purchased license key to activate my updated.

    While doing the installation, there are some HP software that was still on the hard drive. I thought it would be good to have some additional security protocols, so I also installed the WinMagic Securedoc Bootloader v1.2.12 and saved the drive encryption HP with the security issues and password for secondary access.

    10 Windows has been activated and everything was beautiful. But when I restarted the laptop, I put my password for windows and then it goes to this screen of disc HP encryption rises. I put the password and it is accepted - and then the screen turns white... not offshore... jblank TEU with a cursor flashing that doesbn can't react to inputs.

    I tried leaving it for a day or so and still nothing.  There is nothing I can change in the configuration of the BIOS that works so far.

    I also tried Reimage download on USB and re-creation of the sequence of boot, but not good. Even tried a boot drive, but nothing there either. I'll try again.

    I don't know where to go or how to get beyond the screen of HP encryption.  I am pretty good at following directions, I don't know coding, but may do what you suggest to help me fix this problem.

    Can you help me?

    Sorry... I missed the part that you have a license Win10.  I thought you were trying to activate 10 using the OEM HP license and causing problems.

    I do not use HP encryption applications - as having recently completed a career in the InfoSec, I personally focus together on the encryption of the PC to be laughable-, but my guess is that you are basically out of luck.

    If it was my drive, I WIPE the drive of all its content and then again install Win10.  A good product to do i.e. DBan:

    Once your disc is clean, then simply install Win10 on it.

    That said, with a bit of luck, one of the HP EXPERTS will probably come along and tell you how to get around their encryption.

    Good luck

  • Toshiba 32 GB Flash Drive and locking software for Ubuntu

    I bought a 32 GB Toshiba Usb Flash Drive, which comes with a lock. Works great under Vista, but if I stick in my Ubuntu desktop-driven, the files on the disk can be viewed or copied or deleted, so the software that comes with the drive is pretty useless as collateral.

    Any suggestions please?

    Hi Gumnut,

    What Toshiba flash drive you exactly, because there are different models on the market? I m not owner of this flash drive but for as far as I know Toshiba doesn't support Linux, so this software will not work on Linux, so the reader isn't locked.

    You can also contact Toshiba. I found an email address on the Toshiba memory product page: > Service & Support

    Just write an email and you can get an official response! :)

  • Satellite L675 - 11 H - cannot access and/or played on USB flash drive files

    Hi all

    I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite L675 - 11H and tried to transfer files from a USB Pendrive on my hard drive from Toshiba. The files were already transferred from my old laptop (HP - XP) on my USB flash drive.

    Unable to access the USB flash drive to any of the USB ports that I connect my new laptop flash drive. What could be the problem here? Thank you for your help or tips!

    Hey Rush,

    Can you post more detailes about this behavior? What happens if you connect your laptop HARD drive, you don't see that Windows installs the drivers for the new USB device or do you have an error message? If you have connected the USB check of Windows disk management if she s recognized there (Control Panel > system and security > administrative tools).

    Have you tried other USB devices such as USB mice? If they don t work too the problem might be connected to the USB ports. In this case, you must delete all the USB ports on the Device Manager and restart your laptop. Also the chipset driver update might help.

  • Re: Unable to record the extended warranty on a replacement laptop.

    I followed the advice of Toshiba and my warranty extended and registered the day I got my laptop. Due to a hardware failure within the first 2 days, my laptop was returned for a replacement again. I saved the new laptop but can't save the extended warranty because it is always linked to the previous mobile phone number.

    Toshiba support sent several emails, I am either ignored or asks me to sign up for my new laptop (which I already have). Then how get into the mentality of the Toshiba Corporation and then ask to complete a very simple procedure to transfer my extended warranty on the new laptop?

    Or am I asking too much?

    Your old notebook must be removed from the database of Toshiba.
    Try to contact Toshiba reuse this mail. Maybe they need several days for a response.

    To be honest, this is strange. Many people have two or more laptops from Toshiba and must be able to register extension notebook or guarantee for each of them. for this reason I can't imagine that you are not able to register the second book and extended warranty for it.

  • Satellite Pro P100: The extended warranty is not available?

    Hi, just about to buy a Satellite Pro P100, but when we look at the warranty I don't see this pattern on the list machines covered by the extended warranty available at Toshiba.

    Any ideas?

    It makes me a little nervous if Toshiba does not cover this model for extended warranty.


    Did you mean Satellite Pro P100 or Satellite P100-xxx?
    I asked it because I don t find any laptops Satellite Pro P100 on the Toshiba site. Only Satellite P100-xxx are available and these books are very new. Maybe you checked the list of bad guaranteed?

    PS: I can t believe that the extended warranty is not available on this device.

  • Extended warranty does not

    Hello world!

    I bought a Toshiba laptop a few weeks ago (1 year warranty), and I got an extended warranty 1 year also. I tried to register this extension on the website of Toshiba Europe and the system OK, but as I watched my registration data, it shows only the standard recording instead of the 2-year warranty. Some have said that I should wait a few days, because the system needs time to update, but it has been so since a week now.

    Could you please help me what to do, because I don't want to exceed the enrollment period for 30 days! Thank you in advance.

    Best regards, Szilvia (Hungary)

  • Laptop sees no external Toshiba USB HDD 500 GB


    my new Toshiba drive hard external 500 GB USB does not appear in the laptop with USB 2.0

    The light of the HD post OK

    Tried all USB ports three (sockets) of the laptop.
    Can you help me please?


    Try to use a key USB * Y * cable that allows you to connect the external HARD drive to two USB ports.
    The point is that the common USB 2.0 ports provide 500mA max power.
    That is why it s advisable to connect two USB ports to make sure that enough power would be supplied on the HARD drive.
