Does anyone know where the hard drive is located on this laptop and how to get to it to install a larger hard drive? None of the inspection panels on the underside lead to the hard drive. There is nothing on the Toshiba site or their forum which helps. Thanks

    Toshiba doesn't seem to think they've made a SP10 model. They seem to think they made P10 models (or P15). Maybe their support pages can give more help if you search through their P10 pages. BTW, I did not think their web site was very friendly to regular users. -- Tom

    Tom, Thanks for your reply. SP10-304 is the code on the base of the unit but the P10 is the model in question. And yes, the Toshiba website is rubbish so I'm still at a loss. Where I live very close to the Scottish border, there are no computer shops and the nearest is Newcastle-on-Tyne or Edinburgh so I'm stuck. Ken

    You're welcome, Ken. It took a little thought to be sure what you needed and a little more to narrow down what would be useful. That one was as close as I could get.

    All that I could find on this was that it is below the optical drive. Some sites suggest removing the drive the access the HDD. -Paul

    The question can be voted on for removal. At least two members must take that vote, but that doesn't necessarily guarantee removal. The site functions as an "AnswerWiki" for permanent reference. As the original asker, you can designate that a comment be the 'Approved Answer'. But it's possible that the 'Answer' can still be edited later as new information becomes available. Sooner or later, someone else is going to want the same answer. --
