Have you checked BIOS settings for correct hard-drive capacity and/or boot sequence? If the HDD isn't being read with the correct values in the BIOS/CMOS, then you need to find some diagnostic utilities from the drive-manufacturers' website. If the values are incorrect (or won't "hold") then your CMOS battery has probably died. You also list your OS as Win7 (this is the Win2000 forum)...

Satellite Pro Toshiba 460CDT is a Pentium 166MHz.

Poster posted in the correct forum but the indicated OS is incorrect, probably because they are actually *posting FROM a Win7 machine*.

If the machine is (as sdfox7 states) a Pentium 166, then Win7 or Vista would not work on that machine. You need to stick with something like Win9x/ME or possibly NT4.

If that machine had the full spec of 160MB RAM (the maximum) it could run any of those operating systems well, and probably Windows 2000 acceptably (so long as it wasn't being used for gaming, LOL.)

"...and probably Windows 2000 acceptably"

Since the Microsoft minimum (i.e.---"no-fun") requirements for Win2K were: P133/64MB RAM/650MB Free HDD space, I doubt that the machine would be very tolerable, unless an nLited-version of Win2K was applied. It usually took at least a 300MHz machine w/256MB of RAM to become very useful.
