You can get by without a Recovery disk, this contains among other things as well as device drivers.for your model laptop.
Go to a working computer and go to Toshiba's WEB site - (www.toshiba.com) and to download/support and locate the various drivers (ie. viseo, audio, modem, LAN etc.) for your model laptop and version of Windows operating system (eg. XP, Vista). You most likely require these drivers after you install the operating system.
If you don't get sound or your LAN card etc. you will need to install the relevant drivers. You can also check which device is not working by going to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager. Decice Manager will list all the various devices install and any that are not working or have no drivers have a yellow ? against that item. If you install the driver for that item and it works the the yellow ? will disappear.
You will also need a Windows install CD disk and the product code will be on a sticker on the base of the laptop which will need to be typed in during the install process. It would be advisable to also install the latest Service Pack (SP3 for XP, SP1 for Vista) and you will need to activate the Windows operating systen license.
