How do you remove the hard drive from a Toshiba Satellite 1625 notebook?
ok here's the deal, i want you to know that removing the harddrive from a laptop is not the best thing to do. you can injure the computer or the HD it's self. But if you want to know, on the side of the computer there should be the batery, and other ports, now there will be a piece of the computer that looks like it can be pulled out, it can be. however, you must first unscrew it from the motherboard. it is very easy to do this, simply turn the laptop over and look for a screw that looks like it was holding it in, unscrew it and turn the laptop back over again. now, usually the HD is on the opposite side of the computer as the battery. when the screw is out and you are sure you have it, give the piece a good pull. with a few good tuggs it should come out. Replacing the hard drive in a Toshiba 1625 is very easy to do, and no more risky to your computer than dropping in a memory chip. It should take less than 5 minutes. On the bottom of the 1625 are three screws with the letter K embossed next to them - those are 3 of 7 screws that hold the keyboard in place, The other four screws are accesed by snapping off (no screws) the narrow ridge of plastic spanning the screen hinges - it's the piece with the 7 little leds and icons. Yes, it really does snap off (swing the screen way back). Remove the other 4 screws and lift the keyboard out. The hard drive is the 10x7cm box you see in the middle. Removing the two screws on the right side will enable you to lift (using the plastic tab) that end of the harddrive up just to the level that you can slide it out to the right (the HD socket is at the other end). DON'T ATTEMPT TO LIFT IT STRAIGHT OUT - IT HAS TO BE UNPLUGGED FROM THE SOCKET BY PULLING TO THE RIGHT. You may have to rock it back and forth while pulling. When installing a new hard drive, you'll obviously do the reverse, but be careful to hold the drive up with one hand as you plug it in so you can lower it gently into place.

Look at the front of the machine beside the activity LEDs. You'll see a panel. Turn the machine over and unscrew the panel, theres only one screw holding it on. Now, it takes …some working to actually get this cover off, but it will come off eventualy. Inside there you'll find the harddrive, its just a simple matter of unscrewing it and pulling the cradle out.Refitting is the reverse of removal.
Hi The hard drive is under the CD ROM. So first slide out the CD ROM. You can then unscrew and slide out the hard disk. Cheers
Answer . Are you replacing the HD or do you want to SWAP with OS installed on BOTH????
Answer . I looked for the user guide, but there is a problem on the TOshiba homepage (as usual...).\n. \nMy guess is this: turn around you notebook on the back. On the lef…t side (there are also the audio chinch plugins!) you will see a latch that sourrounds also the audio ports. It is fixed by 1 - 3 screws, try the loosen these screws. then you might be abel to pull out the hard drive to the side (it might be behind the plastic latch). BE CAREFULLY! THE CONNECTORS FROM NOTEBOOK-HDDs ARE VERY THIN!!\n. \nGood luck.
Toshiba does not specify a maximum size hard drive for this laptop. Based on its age / date of manufacture, it was probably built around the time of the 2.1 GB barrier, and th…us is already equipped with the largest possible drive usable under most operating systems.
Answer . You can download drivers from Toshiba (European) website.
I'm not sure, I use the recovery disk. I would do a search for "disk eraser." Many sites offer free utilities to scrub a hard drive. If you need to seriously mess up a drive, …I would recommend using a hardware solution that is designed to meet DoD specs (department of defense). Obviously, formatting a hard drive will not delete all the data. In fact, it's pretty easy to recover it. So, you want a program that will write 0's and 1's to the disk; and random characters for that matter. The more times you "wipe" the less likely the data is to be found later on.
The Toshiba A10-S127 Satellite laptop can take up to at least a 100Gb hard drive as per toshiba's upgrade page. Here is the link to it: http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/…afin.to You just have to fill in your model number and it will show you the results.
ask tosiba. Yup, ask toshiba and i found complete answer by this site : http://www.rudytarigan.com/notebook/driver-guide-for-all-notebook-toshiba-type.html
This varies heavily by model. Very old Tecras have the hard drive in the front, underneath the sound card. Other models have them either on the side, or directly underneath, c…overed by a flat panel.
You can find them on Toshiba's support site. The L310 is sold primarily in Asian markets, so you have to use the Asian site, not the usual American one. You can find a link to… the drivers for the sound card below.
there is a glossy piece of plastic right above the keyboard it runs above the f keys .. just take a precision flat head screw driver and pop it up . there is two screws one on… the right and one on the left under the plastic bar you just removed . unscrew them and lift up the keyboard. then there is a black connector with white heads . pull the white heads up and the keyboard should be free
