Ensure that LBA is enabled in the bios on the laptop and also read the manual for the laptop in terms of hard drive issues ( possibly contact toshiba )
There may also be a firmware update that may rectify the issue so I would check into updating the firmware - check there website for the correct firmware and read the read me.
It is VITAL that you get the correct one and that it does not power off whilst you are doing the firmware update otherwise it will kill your laptop.
Also if this resolves the issue please rate this as a fix
If you need more help / more info please feel free to post back

Install a partition manager program like

open it and you will see the entire hard disk. In there either create another partition in the unallocated space or add it to the D partition.

it seems there is a problem with detection of hard disk drive.

as soon as you turn on the laptop press F1 key to enter the BIOS and check there to see if the hard drive is detected or not. If F1 doesnt take you into BIOS try F2.
