Sorry but Unfortunately Hard drives (HDD) are very susceptible to physical shocks and can be damaged that way. It may be possible to take it to a repair center to see if they can salvage some of you data but their are no guarantees.

Restore disks are created to only work with the default hard drive that came with the laptop. Even if you bought an exact replacement it still wouldnt work as the restore discs looks for the unique serial number of the hard drive and therefore prevents people from using the recovery discs on other toshiba systems or non toshiba systems.
Id suggest borrowing another windows installation disc and using the key on the certificate of authencity on the bottom f the laptop to activate.You might have to ring microsoft to activate it but just explain whats happened and it should all go ok.

Hi there. Restart the PC and hit F2 while it boots up, this will take you into the bios, look for boot devices and set the CD to the first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios. The compuer will restart and boot from the CD drive. Once the OS has installed go back into the bios and set the HDD (hard drive) to first boot device.
No, no need for hard drive. Press and hold the FN key and press F4 once, if nothing happens try it again. If screen appears then your in luck. Otherwise the back light needs to be replaced for your LCD screen. Try an external screen and press FN+F4 key and you should have a screen so you can see if there are other problems. Good luck!
it sounds like when you slammed on the hard drive you cause the mechanical arm inside the drive to malfunction. you will need to replace the hard drive and then reload winbdows and the drivers for your laptop
