Replacement HDD for Tecra M10-10W

Q: Replacement HDD for Tecra M10-10W

Hi. I've got a failing hard disk in my Tecra, the existing disk is a Fujitsu MHZ2120BH G1. In an ideal world I would swap this disk for a solid state but I'm wary having read of others' problems installing SSDs. Has anyone any experience of successfully (or otherwise!) of doing this. Alternatively, I'm quite content to stick with a HDD but I wonder whether I can increase the size of the disk from the existing 120Gb? I've got some vague memory of having read about a limit on the size this laptop will take. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi All,

I've just received a new Z50-C-12F and wanted to replace the 256GB SSD with a bigger one (Samsung M.2 950 Pro 512GB)

Unfortunately, the new SSD is not detected at boot, but I can't understand why.
The original SSD is a Samsung MZ-NTY2560 (B&M key) the new one is an M Key, but so is the connector in the laptop.

I have tried setting the UEFI to CSM (default is UEFI (Legacy)) in the BIOS but even booting from a Parted Magic DVD shows no sign of the new SSD.

TIA,

Steve

Hey, anybody do this before? I'm trying to take out the cd/dvd drive of a Toshiba Tecra A8, and after a pretty thorough web search (and searching these forums), I have a pile of little screws on my desk, and think there must be a simpler way than to take the whole thing apart...
Halp?

Hi,

I've got "new-old" computer at work and I want to increase perfomance of z50 so I wanted to change HDD for SSHD or SSD (i got both of them). But i have big trouble with booting OS on both of them. User before me used Bitlocker function.

Completely new system on HDD is working fine. The problem is when i switch orginal HDD with any other disk. I am installing WIN 10 PRO on new SSHD and it everything as usual to the moment when computer restarts after complete installation. Z50 after restart is not able to boot itself with new disk and it shows " Insert system disk in drive ..." I've tried everything i found and still didn't manage to run OS on new SSHD.

Maybe someone has any ideas as to what the problem might be?

Hello everybody.
My (Nick) Name is Marsu, I'm from Germany and I want replace a *dead* mainboard with P/N P000456600 (NV GF6200TE 64GB Tecra M4 PTM40E)
I figured out, that there are a lot of different boards with the same layout, but different p/n's around the world...

Here is my (little confused) question:
Is it possible to replace the board with maybe P000435380 or P000456590 without problems?
The mainboards seems to have exactly the same layout and chipsets, as I could see on some pictures...

There is a good offer in eb*y for the P000435380 and I don't want to throw that really nice but old one away... ;)

I have asked "Uncle google" and some sellers, but nobody knows...

Then I have found this forum here and it is my last hope :D

Would be fine if somebody can give me a helping hand with this dilemma...

Thanks in advance and a nice weekend

A:Tecra M4 - Mainboard replacement

> I have asked "Uncle google" and some sellers, but nobody knows...
I believe this. It is not easy to get such info. Who knows how it works and what can be done is Toshiba service provider. They have access to Toshiba?s database and know which parts can be used with certain notebook models.

What I know is that Tecra M4 was offered with two platforms. One with part number PTM40E and other with number PTM42E but there is no big difference so I think if you buy mainboard for M4 it should be the right one. You are from Germany so order part offered for European model and I think you cannot do something wrong.

Of course it is just my personal opinion.

Hi to all,

What to do? Please help.

A:Tecra S11 - After HDD replacement I can't update BIOS

> Error: Preparing to update was failed.

Do you have Admin rights?
Sounds like the issue could be related to missing privileges which are needed to run a update.

You could enable the admin account following these steps:
Choose command prompt (the black box cmd)
In the box type net user administrator /active:yes
Then log out. Usually an additional user account should be visible ?Administrator?.

Now log in using this account and try to execute the BIOS update.

Note: in many cases the VAP (value added package) is needed to run the update BIOS.
Be sure also, that package has been unzipped correctly before running the exe file.

In my opinion if you want to get any compatible part for any Toshiba notebook, you should contact the Toshiba authorized service provider in your country.

The ASP is able to provide all parts for the notebook. Even if the part will not be available, they are able to order the essential part from Toshiba?s headstock.

Hi,

A friend asked me to fix her keyboard so we bought a new one from eBay and swapped it over. The new one is US-type and doesn't have the cursor-nub/trackpoint (whatever you'd call it) in the middle, and so only 1 ribbon connector on the back. I'm 100% sure I've connected it properly, I've checked and double-checked.
Mostly it works fine, but then some keys have stopped working like backspace and enter, which is big deal.
I've tried uninstalling the drivers and rebooting. I've tried changing the keyboard type in the language settings in control panel.

No matter what we try, we can't get this keyboard with all keys functioning!
Is there some setting I have overlooked that need changing?
Any help at all would be very appreciated, thanks!

A:Re: Tecra A7 - keyboard replacement issue

It is not easy to discuss about this issue if you don?t use 100% the same and original keyboard.
Keyboard uses standard Microsoft driver so I don?t know which driver you can change to check keyboard functionality.

Is so problematic to find original and the same keyboard as original one? On eBay you can find everything.

So I am over at my sister's place Friday night and she asked me if I would like a laptop. I said sure, let me take a look. It is an old Toshiba Tecra S1 that she got from work and it is actually in decent shape and solidly built. I have fiddled around with it for 2 days and suprisingly it is very stable.

It has the latest BIOS (from 2005) and I was able to upgrade the Intel wireless driver that was dated from 2006. All USB ports are working (unfortunately no S-Video or Firewire). It has Windows XP Pro and I was able to install SP2 without a hitch. The cpu is a 1.4 GHz Pentium M. It also has a DVDE/CD-RW drive.

The only thing that I see as a drawback (besides old tech) is that the harddrive is a mere 40 GBs. I know very little about laptop hardware except the basics so can anyone suggest what harddrive I should consider as a possible upgrade? I have done research but as I said I am pretty much a noob concerning laptop hardware especially older offerings.

Thanks.
 

A:Toshiba Tecra S1: What Hard drive Replacement?

What configuration is the HDD?

SATA, PATA or IDE, it seems to be IDE from what I can find but I need it confirming.
I've replaced a few Laptop HDD's so I know a bit about them and I'm on a Laptop now so I can help with this. If it is IDE I can't see any on Newegg.

In essence it is basically the same as a Desktop HDD. My Laptop used to have a 40Gb HDD I upgraded mine to 120Gb but mine was SATA and is only 2 years old Next Month since its Manufacturing.

A:Can I use Tecra A10 OS disk to install OS on Tecra M10?

At first I must say that Toshiba recovery image is created for each notebook model separately and it is 100% created to work on specific model. Why?
Every notebook model has different hardware platform and all drivers, tools and utilities for certain model are part of recovery image. These recovery images are also tested.

Generally speaking if both models have identical hardware platform (hardware parts) it can be used.

(Just posting this here so people in the future can find it.) I replaced my motherboard and just wanted to leave this here for future reference to some poor soul who has to do the same.
If you replace the motherboard on your Dell Studio XPS 8000, (service tag 3L8DHK1) and you need a new motherboard you can use an INTEL DQ57TM, it's compatible and I did a successful transplant. Your processor is an INTEL Core-i5 750 CPU 2.67GHZ it uses a SOCKET LGA1156. It uses DDR3 memory.
Once you take out your old motherboard and disconnect all those usb and audio wires and the power button wires. To hook up your USB front jacks, audio jacks etc.... here's which blocks go where:
Wires from the audio jacks and usb ports go into these colored block connectors, and those connectors get plugged into those little rows of pins/jumpers called Internal Headers. Every motherboard manual tells you about them. Grab the manual for your new motherboard and it'll tell you where your audio1, usb1, usb2, usb3, usb4 Header connectors are they look like 2 rows and 5 collumns of short little pins. (They almost always have 1 or 2 pins missing on purpose.)
the wires leading to a YELLOW BLOCK gets plugged into the audio1 header on your new motherboard, it's for audio jacks on top of the computer
wires with the WHITE BLOCK gets plugged into the usb3 headers on your motherboard (they are for the usb jacks on the very top of the computer tower)

Hello,

we are encountering unusual problems with one of our Tecra devices.

Background info:

(The Laptop is used mostly in docked mode).

Occasionaly the screen won't turn on (laptop aswell as ext. monitor) while the laptop is used in dock-mode when the system is powered on by the user.

The user is also facing this issue, when the device is used outside the dock (eg. presentations) and reputting it into the docking station.

As said, the issues arrive occasionaly and we can't spot the problem.

Things I've already did:

- Update BIOS/UEFI to newest version
- Check multiple BIOS/ Windows settings e.g. Power-Settings -> disabled most of them that could cause this weird behavior
- Checked display drivers (Intel) and updatet them to the newest (no beta drivers)

The solution now exists of powering off the device via hard reset (pressing the power button for multiple settings), restarting the system and then putting it back into the docking station.

As you can imagine, this problem is very frustrating to us when the user has worked on something important and hasn't saved his progress before leaving meetings, because he knew he will be at his office, putting his device back in, but nothing happens and we have to hard reset it.

I appreciate any kind of help.

Generally speaking it should not be a big problem to use an SSD instead of an common HDD.

What else I can improve

A:How I can improve my Tecra M7?

Hello

According the specifications of Tecra M7-132 on Toshiba page it supports up to 4GB RAM but all 32bit OS support only up to 3.2GB RAM and for Windows XP 2GB is more than enough because it doesn?t need much RAM capacity.
The specification for RAM is DDR2-667.

Regarding the HDD: Larger HDDs are no problem because there is no capacity limit on SATA interface. That means you can also install 500GB HDD or larger. Only important is that you buy a 2.5? HDD with SATA interface.
Also 7200rpm shouldn?t be a problem but they creating more heat and need more battery power. Usually 5400rpm are enough and quieter.

Hi mate

I?m not quite sure if you will be able to order such disk for this notebook.
In some cases this is not possible if the notebook series has been discontinued.
But check this page:
http://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

Usually you could order the recovery disks there.
But if it?s not possible, then you will need to install the Windows using an Microsoft disk!
The necessary drivers could be found on the Toshiba European driver page:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/

Note: you have to choose Archive in the driver download form in order to find the Tecra M7 series.

There is an Intel Storage Manager on the Toshiba EU driver page which contains the SATA driver.
You can find the Tecra S5 drivers in Archive (Product type -> Archive)

After upgrading to win7 and having sometimes a bleu screen when starting up the following happened.

After once more blue screen the laptop does not startup at all.

The only thing happens , is that I see the upstartscreen (in touch with tomorrow TOSHIBA) and icons at the underside of the screen indicating the drives. Then nothing happens any more, it doe not start up.

I can by entering F12 in a new startup procedure change to startup via CD rom, but this also has no effect.

Also it is not possible to enter the bios (esc + F1).

The keyboard is functioning because,after a while every touch result is a short " beep" .

I have removed the battery for a while and tried again with no result.



Can I put my laptop by the trash ore is there a possibility to bring it to live again

Thanks in advance, Jos

A:Re: Tecra S5 does not boot at all

On this virtual way it is not easy to offer some exact diagnostic but somehow I feel BIOS is screwed up.
Disconnect AC adapter, remove battery and press power button for 20 seconds. After doing this connect AC power supply only and start your notebook again.

I don't have this notebook model and I?m not sure about entering BIOS but try also with F2.

Good afternoon,

I have a toshiba tecra s11-128 with broken lcd panel.
This model have a lcd screen with 1366*768 resolution.

The same series (example: S11-11d) was also equipped with the HD+ (1600*900) lcd screen

Can i replace it with HD+ lcd panel (1600*900 resolution)?

Thanks for any replies.

A:Tecra S11 - broken LCD

You are right. both models have different LCD displays but the same graphic card. I cannot say for sure but I’m pretty sure that you can use HD+ display with your notebook.

Is there a description available hoe to remove a harddisk in a Tecra R10 and plugin a new harddisc?

A:Tecra R10 - How to remove the HDD?

Hi buddy,

As far as I know the HDD is placed under the notebook cover and therefore a lot of parts must be removed like CD drive, keyboard, base assy, etc.

In my opinion it?s a tricky procedure and should only be done from a notebook technician because a lot of screws must be removed as well.

Is current HDD defective or why you want to exchange it?

HI, was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem: on boot up the screen flashes red instead of black, with vertical lines (white thin ones) across the screen. When it finally boots with windows xp, there are horizontal lines across the screen with different shades of the colour. The cursor has a box of lines around it. I think it's a VGA card issue but am not sure; has anyone had similar problems? I have visited irisvista on the web, where there are some instructions on disassembly. I got to the connector to the LCD and repositioned it, and noticed that when I appllied pressure in this area I could get near normal display.... can anyone shed some light???

It sounds like there might be something wrong with the cable or cable connector. Can you try another cable?

Have read many posts and tried what was suggested. I pulled the 2 memory modules and cleaned the contacts with an eraser. I inserted only one of the modules at a time, switching slots etc. and then powered it up each time. Once with only 1 module installed, I got the WINDOWS XP startup screen (with the moving bar below) and then the Toshiba Splash screen appeared and then the screen went blank again. Seems like the hard drive starts up and then stops. The DVD drive seems to respond with a low clicking sound. I hear a couple chirps/clicks from the hardware but no beeps whatsoever.

I'm guessing bad RAM. I will try with some new RAM later when I get some.

Since I did get the machine to sort of startup once, am I safe to assume the BIOS and Motherboard are okay ?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I have 2x 4 GB now but I wish I could have more....

Thanks,
paulo

You cannot have more. Maximum is 8GB.
You can use 2 x PA3918U-1M4G.

For the graphics card on Tecra S1, is the mother board attached to it so that it cannot be seperated? If so, how much would it cost to replace the board? Thanks for the help~
 

A:Question about Tecra S1

About $75 to $150, used. Much more new. Better to buy a better laptop. Or lurk on eBay until you see the right package.

Hi, I've a Tecra that came with Win Pro 7 Sp1 that was upgraded with supplied Recovery DVDs to Win 8 Pro and subsequently online to 8.1 and Win 10.
Win 8 and 8.1 ran fine but with so many problems on Win 10, I eventually went for "scratch" install with the recovery Win 8 DVDs.

Zapped the entire HDD using the Recovery DVDs but finally get the following msg after Win 8 had been re-installed: "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer"
Ran "MSoobe" , as recommended on other forums and while this advanced the process, Windows ultimately did not run.

Any ideas anyone?
Thanks - davidtjm
