No, after formatting there will not be any operating system, you require the Windows XP Home or Professional CD to install windows

Cant format my C drive


Sounds like the hard drive might be going bad....but you did say everything copied okay.. maybe you could try installing a different operating system on the partition or using an ubuntu live disk or another utility to reformat the partition before reinstalling windows. Is data loss an issue? Let me know if I can clarify anything.

My laptop is giving me a msg power surge hub port problem


The USB power problem might be difficult to diagnose and resolve. An option would be to restore your computer using the recovery discs, make sure you backup all your data first as this will format your hard drive and delete everything on it.

Use a memory stick to back up all your programs you have installed and then format you computet.
or download or buy a new program for Explorer or get Firefox it is a much better and you can download it for free. Remember to create back up files on an old laptop or a memory stick just in case of any loses during formating the computer... The same is advisable is creating an new account.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
