Be gentle, since I'm not very technical.....
I was preparing my rarely used Netbook (XP version) to give to my elderly father & installed AVG with current virus definitions with no problem. When I went to upgrade to the current version of Firefox, it hung. When I tried to reboot, it wouldn't & started clicking. From what I've been told, the hard drive probably crashed & needs to be replaced. Any other ideas?
If that's all it is, will any SATA 2.5 work & can I go to 7200 vs 5400? Since I never created a restore disc (no CD drive), do I have to buy from Toshiba?
And are there directions for replacing the hard drive, since I hope to do it myself?

I saw this old thread, and thought I'd post here.
It seems the HDD on my Toshiba NB205 has died. I never backed it up, but no big loss of data. However, I have no recovery disks that I know of, nor do I have an external dvd drive.
So, even if I buy and install a new HDD, how would I get Windows installed, and all the Toshiba software installed?

Next time you post on the Forums, please start your own thread rather than piggy back on another--in this case, one over a year old! Recovery Media is also available in USB form. I'm not sure about your specific machine. Go HERE and scroll down to order.
