If you dropped the laptop, there is some sort of internal damage. My suggestion is that you dammaged the hard drive at least. There might even be more. You can either replace the hard drive and see if that is the fix, or take it to a repair and have them fix it and thoroughly check it over. My suggestion is take it and get it looked at for the exact source of dammage.

Driver not found reboot your system and run this setup again

Kenlaya, This will be a bit more complex but i hope you will grasp.
That is a sign of a corrupt system file that makes the operating system unstable and fail to boot up.

If you are using Windows 7,

Put the CD in the CD drive and restart your computer. When you are prompted, choose System repair, or start-up repair. This will fix your problem. Note: The Serious the problem, the longer it will take to fix it up.

If your laptop is running Windows XP....

Put the Operating system CD (e.g XP, Win 7 or Vista or anything like that), in the CD drive. Boot your laptop while pressing F2 and this will let you go to the system BIOS for your laptop. In the system BIOS locate the boot order or the boot sequence and configure the CD drive to be the first in the boot order and restart your laptop. This will let the computer boot from the CD.
Wait until the CD finishes loading its files, then you are going to be prompted to press Enter (to continue) or press 'R" to repair using an automated repair.

At this point just press enter and continue, then you will press F8 for license agreement and then you will be prompted again to press Esc if you want to install your Operating system afresh, or to press "R" to repair your OS(Operating system) or press F3 to quit. At this point, you can now press R to repair. Sit back and relax while the CD replaces old with new files in your Windows directory....
When it is done, it will restart and continue in another face where you will be prompted to answer a few question and then your operating system would have been cleansed.

You must of handled to motherboard incorrectly and possibly fried the SATA/PATA controller, usually found on the North or south bridge. My friend had the same problem, leaving the motherboard useless. IF this is a laptop your screwed (I.E. motherboard is junk). If this is a desktop you can either replace the motherboard OR you can buy a SATA/PATA card that inserts into the PCI/PCI-E slot to create a place to plug your hard drive in. Hope that helps.

I need to restart my laptop to factory settings

if you want it to be factory settings, you would need the exact same Operatin Sytem installation disk which they probably didnt give you. The reason i say the same is because your serial numbers wont match as your original OS. Anyways if you only doing it to sell the laptop or two have a fresh Operating system, i would recomend you !1) Get a copy os Windows XP
2) Backup all your important files
3) Format your laptop and reinstall XP
4) Restore your files
5) Download (If you dont have it already) your drivers for your laptop. This can be found on Toshibas website.
6) Install all drivers and thats it. You have a Factory Set Laptop
