Its time to fix up this Toshiba Satellite Pro 4270 that I was given for free.
After the restoration I did some run time testing on the battery was able to get about 1.5 - 2hrs installing applications, amazing for any laptop of this age.

  • I have an old Toshiba laptop almost similar issue and model. There's a lot of games there that I really want to play again. It reminds me of my childhood. But I can't remember the games now. I tried searching it. There's around 20+ games in there but I only remember one to three. Puzzle Express, Need for Speed, and Aircraft/Ainsoft I think.

  • It reminds me of Dell Latitude C610 my uncle got in 2010 for free and made some upgrades and gave to me. It runs Windows XP Pro 32 bit Service Pack 3. I think it’s 3. I can’t remember which version. 60 GB HDD. 1 GB of RAM. It also gives me weird unsupported resolutions.

  • I have an older Toshiba Techra 520 series laptop with a rather large docking station. Used it for many years however I notice that the floppy drive failed. This was traced to a broken micro belt. Found a source for belts from China but I have not ordered them yet. In the meantime the Hard drive failed. Still looking to find an identical drive to try swapping the circuit board to see if I can recover my software. HOPEFULLY I will succeed. There is a lot of software on board that is licensed to me that I need since it is no longer available from the various manufacturers but still needed by me in the field. As for proprietary batteries most were made for Toshiba by Varta Battery's. if you can obtain the proper rechargeable coin cells from Varta one can find a battery shop with a spot welder than can assemble a new pack for you. These might be slow by today's standards but they are true workhorses.
