What disk capacity HARD Satellite A20 S-103 supports?

Hello everyone and sorry for the bad English ;)
I want to improve my laptop HARD drive but I don't know what cell maximum supported size?
It's a Satellite A20 s-103, with Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz processor.
Can you help me with this?

I think buy a 160 GB Samsung HARD drive! :)
Its very important question for me, and I couldn't be able to find an answer yet.

Sincerely! :)


For me, the upgrade for the 160 GB HARD drive is questionable.
I don't know that the BIOS recognises this large size m.
I know that the laptop should recognize the unique sizes such as 30 GB, 40 GB, 60 GB or 80 GB.

Of course, you can try to connect the 160 GB and it would be very interesting to know the results. Please report the details...

  • Disk capacity hard satellite 2550S


    I wonder if Toshiba Dynabook Satellite 2550 S supports 40 GB HDD? If no, what is the maximum capacity of the hard drive can detect this laptop? Similarly, what is the graphics card for this device driver, I'm only using standard view type (display portable Panel 1024 x 768 on super vga) thank you.



    Well, as far as I know, this unit is designed for a Japanese market.
    In this case you will not be able to find the drivers for this unit on the European site of Toshiba.
    I also checked the other sites of Toshiba but unsuccessfully ;(
    I guess you must visit the Toshiba site to the Japan. Maybe you will find some information on this laptop.

  • Disk failure hard satellite L650-12N - replaced with SSD - how to recover?

    My HARD drive has failed, so I bought a 256 GB SSD Crucial CT256MX100SSD1. I installed it in the laptop and went to use the recovery CD. It's the bit score correctly as far as I can tell, but to cut a long story short, I think that the recovery disk is missing a few vital pieces of information (read below - I may be wrong).

    So, how do for Satellite L650-12N new recovery discs?

    Thank you

    After the partition, it then says "copy files of database recovery.
    some random jargon

    Then he said: «unpack the OS and system/WinRE»
    Set of RECO...
    It says "copy F:\ZZImg\11353XSP.swm to V:\HDDRecovery\SWImg 1/10
    1 file (s) copied.
    Copy of the CRC files
    1 file (s) copied.
    Copy F:\ZZImg\11353XSP2.swm to V:\HDDRecovery\SWImg 2/10
    1 file (s) copied.
    Copy of F:\ZZImg\11353XSP3.swm to V:\HDDRecovery\SWImg 3/10
    1 file (s) copied.
    Copy of F:\ZZImg\11353XSP4.swm to V:\HDDRecovery\SWImg 4/10
    1 file (s) copied.
    Copy of F:\ZZImg\11353XSP5.swm V:\HDDRecovery\SWImg 5/10
    1 file (s) copied. »

    at this stage it says ' insert the next recovery media (containing the F:\ZZImg\11353XSP6.swm file)!
    but the backup I did only has one drive.

    Hmm, for me, it seems that some image packages are missing.
    According to your message, the recovery image must contain 10 packs, but the first recovery disc provides only 5 packages.
    Should be so 2nd drive providing other packages to complete the recovery procedure.

    I m wondering if you already used the recovery disc (CD) in the past.
    Are you sure that this recovery disc has been done correctly 100%?

    From my point of few recovery disk is defective and to recover the laptop, you need a good way to return to work.

  • Disk replacement hard satellite M20

    I had a problem with my satellite M20 Ref PSM20Q-00PZ6

    The original HD (Toshiba MK4025GAS) is totally dead.

    I bought a new one (toshiba MK6025GAS), the same 60G instead of 40.

    I had never recognized by the bios, unless I have set it up on another laptop to change its size to 8.4 G.

    How can I configure it to be recognized as a 60G?


    It seems that the BIOS cannot recognize the disk properly due to the size of the HARD drive. Unfortunately, I put t found any details on the size of HDD supported, but in my opinion the 60 GB of HDD is not supported if the BIOS recognizes the HARD drive correctly.

  • Disk error hard satellite L50-B-235

    Laptop stopped recognizing Bluetooth, so restarted, but when you start it says something to check a disk and repair the hard disk, which then laptop crashed before completing. Would not start once again, it is:
    1 past age on the toshiba screen then tell no boot device
    2 load the login screen, then past ages in front welcome saying windows preparation and loading a temporary profile. When he made a mistake shows saying Windows detected a hard disk problem. Back up your files to prevent loss of information and then ask the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk. It will then crash after 10 to 30 minutes and the blue screen with my critical_process_died error, which restarts always shows described in 1.

    I have Windows (updated 8) 10 and the laptop is less a year. I've tried various searches on google and fixes, including:
    Update of system drive where Windows is is locked
    Check disk either from the start menu or the command prompt in the temporary profile
    Changed the boot order and then back again
    Several reboots
    Open to the top of the unit and removed, then replaced the hard drive

    Nothing worked, I do not have the recovery media and not really means for the moment. This could be a real hard disk problem (it heats up during boot ups) which would mean it needs to be replaced? If Yes is that these can be purchased with Windows installed on it?

    While I update to windows 10 I have a probem with the use of the hard drive because he moved to the use of 100% and the laptop just crashed.

    I search in the Admin Panel and I discovered that I have a service called host system: local system (private network). I tanslate it Spanish which is the language was my laptop.

    Also I have a problem whit the video card because systems always use the graphic istead intel video card (AMD one). I tried to solve this problem in istalling the graphic control of AMD program, but the program doesent work better because the use of the hard drive is always more 100% and the experience of the computer laptop full length.

  • Disk replacement HARD satellite 1800-400,

    Prices differ as much here, so I think to replace my broken HD Toshiba (I believe that is / was 20 GB) with a new HD. Can I use one of the new 5400 RPM type disks, or if I hold with 4200 RPM normal ones?

    If I do, should I first replace the old BIOS?

    Maybe you need to consider the noiselevel to a 5400 RPM hard drive?

    Update the BIOS? ... Never change a running system ;)

  • Disk failure hard satellite L850 - claim under warranty in Sri Lanka

    My brother bought me a Satellite L850 of UAE UNITED a month ago.
    But I'm in sri lanka.

    The problem is now the hard drive does not start and it says to replace the hard drive.
    I have the card with me.

    My question is can I claim the warranty in Sri Lanka?

    Please help me soon as soon as possible.
    Thank you.


    If you have not purchased the additional international interest, portable computer s hardware problems can be set only in the country where the phone was purchased.

    But AFAIK that parts such as HARD drive or memory are set at the user level.
    Maybe you n t need to send the laptop to UNITED Arab Emirates for a fix, but maybe the guys would be able to send you a HARD drive under warranty conditions.

    Here you can get all the details on the FSA available worldwide.

    I recommend you to contact the ASP and ask for assistance

  • Cannot access the HARD disk drive HARD - Satellite P300 recovery

    Hi all

    I want to perform a Toshiba product recovery, using the partition on the HARD disk. I did it before and no problem.

    But when I press F8--> computer repair--> selection language--> then I have to select a user (Administrator / my name/guest) when I select the administrator, it says that my account has been disabled, when I select the user with my name (Kenneth) he continues to the menu where I can choose the different options for recovery. If I select the product Toshiba blah blah thingy a screen comes up saying it can't find 01 HARD drive. I did nothing with the partition containing Vista.

    My guess is that I need to log in as an administrator, which is impossible. My user account in Vista is a Director,

    Can someone please?

    I use a P300

    Best regards

  • Disk replacement HARD & BIOS question - Satellite A60

    Hi guys

    I have a Satellite A60-672 and his original 40 GB drive is dead. I got a Seagate 80 GB HDD as a replacement, but after it is inserted, it does not show in the BIOS. I did some searching on Google but not really came up with a large part. Is it possible that the BIOS does not recognize the new drive due to the larger size?

    I looked in the BIOS upgrade (currently version 1.50) and found an update to 1.90. After reading the upgrade of BIOS FAQ (http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/faq.jsp?z=234&service=EU&from=faq_selection&CFID=B IOS & FID = TRO0000000b07) I have saw apparently need a floppy drive that laptop did not. Can I use a CD - R in the place or what I need to get a USB floppy drive now?

    Thanks for any help.

    > Is it possible that the BIOS does not recognize the new HARD drive because of the larger drive?

    Yes, it is quite possible and especially a reason why the large capacity HARD disk cannot be used.

    It seems that the update of the BIOS on the Satellite A60 can be done only with the USB FDD.
    But why you want to update the BIOS?
    I don t think that the update will change something
    It seems that the 80 GB are not possible.

  • Satellite R630-146 does support disk HARD SATA II (SATA-300)


    I intend to change my current HITACHI 5K 320 320 HARD drive (HTS543232L9SA00), which is SATA I (* SATA-150 *) on the new HARD drive, but I can't find all the information my Toshiba Satellite R630-146 will support the new SATA II (* SATA-300 *) HARD drive.

    Maybe someone has any ideas where I could find this information?

    Thank you


    I m sure that SATA II hard disks are supported.
    The fact is that the laptop supports the SATA controller and SATA II is down-compatible with SATA I. So it shouldn't be a big problem with the SATA II HARD drive, even if the controller would be SATA I
