Hard drive specifications for Toshiba A10 laptop
\015 I need the exact specifications for a hard drive for this model. It is 5 1/2 yrs. old and model nr. is PSA10E-012SY-NO. It has a 30GG hard drive which I want to replace.\015\012Storage size I can determine myself.\015\012Are IDE and ATA the same thing?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015
IDE is the flat 40 pin cable about 2" wide. Other than that it could be SATA, which is a small, plug. About 3/4" inch by 1.8". Take it apart and see what cable it has. Pretty much any hard drive will fit providing it has the same cable attachments.

Toshiba Laptop Computer was working fine and suddenly just started turning off. When attempting to reboot, error messages came up saying something about an error in Windows XP and "bad Hard Disc C".
