Hi my laptop has an faulty 256 GB SSD.

I have already paid $60 to do a diagnostic with the service centre and now they came back with a quotation of $328 to replace.

Should I get a new SSD from SIM LIM and change it myself? But for the new copy of windows 10 is there any way I can download using my serial number of my laptop etc? I need more detail help thanks

The last time i buy a copy of recovery CD from Toshiba as quote:

(1) Make CD copy by staff cost $100.00 per model set.

(2) Provide you the recovery CD and you DIY at the service center.
Cost $35 with blank CD(s) provided.
Require own laptop to do the copying.. to be done in the service area.. at your own sweet time.
Need to provide the actual local model laptop for the correct recovery disc and will keep your NRIC while having their recovery disc.

I selected option 2 which take me 2 days for 2 Toshiba laptops different model.

Can I remove and paste the strip back onto my new SSD?

Congratulation on successful replacement of SSD and Windows 10 activation!

If the SSD is unable to move about it should be safe enough.

As for that piece of sticky strip it is best to put it as it is since it could be design for a specific purpose.

My laptops do not have such strip as the SSD location is independently covered & secured, unlike yours.

Thanks ...

I been re-installing countless of times of my macbook bootcamp once installed the key already tied up with your laptop..

so when you install it you dont need to key in serial number just skip that process and connect to an internet so long as no major changes on hardware it should get activated (If im right)

Is it necessary to remove the EMI Gasket and paste on the new SSD? As well as the Magnetic strip? The new SSD looks ok without those.

Between what is EMI Gasket?

Anyway I have not discard my old SSD and the magnetic strip cushion and that silver covering is still available should I take it off and transfer to my new Samsung SSD? The new Samsung SSD already has new body.

QFT.


The EMI gasket is something you shouldn't leave out either... can always get some cheap cheap one from china

Doesn't matter whether using SSD or HDD, put the cushion strip back to the default location.

Although the SSD does not vibrate, the strip is there to take out the space and cushion the drive in the event of hard knock. Without the cushion, the strain will concentrate at the screw holes and probably crack the plastic stub holding the brass nut.

That strip is not function as EMI shield.

Ok ok. The horizontal cushion strip was pasted on the old SSD I did not remove it at all when I took out the SSD, u meant to take it out from the old SSD AND paste it on my new SSD?

The silver wrapper do I need to remove it and paste on the New SSD as well? It’s quite sticky for both strip n wrapper.

Yes do paste the strip back to the new SSD.

And do the same for the silver wrapping to simply paste/sticky on the new SSD too.

Your laptop cover is one big one as no individual covers for each components.
Hence items like strip & silver wrapping are means to protect.
If you notice in one of the video the SSD is in protected case where yours do not have which in place it use the silver wrapping thing.

That's why what you remove and then need to put back accordingly.
This is basic understanding.

I’m taking the used condom and fit it over another dickhead. Jokes aside thanks for the advice. I’m just thinking if I am able to remove e tough wrapper and cushion and stick it on the new SSD.

I will try and do it slowly.

It would be sticky in most areas will do as these meant to be sticky in the 1st place.
Do it slowly.

Shock protection is for shock or shaking purpose.. in all storage especially laptop which is movable.

But this is for some form of protection as the laptop cover is just 1 big cover everything, not individual parts of the laptop base.

Mine laptops SSD storage is in separate compartment with cover & screws unlike yours.

ok an update.

I just paste back the silver wrapper and cushion on to my new SSD. the wrapper is too big for my SSD and I had to trim off the sides to that it can fit into the bracket in my laptop if not it be extremely tight.

The wrapper torn the coating off my new Samsung SSD and now I can see the silver Color coating beneath the black coat of paint on my new SSD. V heart pain cos e SSD is new.

My SSD is also screw on 4 sides to secure it just that all the parts are in one big piece cover with different compartments.




Old Spoiit SSD



New SSD wrapped up and screwed. Had to cut and trim away the sides so that the screws can fit in.
