I changed the hard drive in my m400 and i doesnt
You haven't said whether you installed Windows from the original factory discs which came with the laptop. If you haven't done that yet, open the cd tray and put the 1st disc in. Shut down the laptop. Reboot the laptop and it should boot off the disc and ask you if you want to "format" the hard drive. At this point you should be able to follow the on screen instructions until everything is loaded, including all hardware drivers. Any other software you had on your old drive will need to be reinstalled on this drive from the disc. If the software is old you may want to go to the appropriate website for the driver and download the newest version. That should complete your install. Let me know if you need more help.
Thanks for using FixYa and the generous rating.

Howto reset cmos on toshiba 3500
You can just use a paper clip (straighten to a U shape) and short out the battery contacts.
If you are not sure, just leave the battery out for 20+ mins then put the battery back in the holder.
The BIOS settings will then be set back to th default settings, then go into the BIOS setting and set the Date and Time etc.

Where sim card position in m400
Only a select few (very few) M400's have a 3G wireless module, and from what I understand they do not use a Sim Card as they use CDMA technology. You can tell if your unit has the 3G unit with several different ways.
A. Check the device Manager
B. Try and install the 3G power management driver, and see if it loads.
C. Check using Toshiba Utilities if installed
D. This is the hardest way, but the best. Remove the keyboard, and if the 3G unit is installed, it will be at the top right hand side of the case under plastic film. (I have had three M400's, including the top of the range one that I am writing this on, and I have never seen a 3G unit).
If you do have the 3G unit installed, look for an ESN number. You should then be able to then call Verizon and have the service activated.
