Don't need THE boot disks.
A system disk from any OS will do.
Insert disk before power on.
It should tell you whether it is compatible.
If so it will load its own drivers.
and if not it may tell you what OS is on there.
ps. OS = operating system

You'll need a boot disk with diagnostic software.Ultimate Boot CD is completely free for the download, or could be obtained for a small fee. Run a low level format (zero fill) on with the utility made by the manufacture of the hard drive installed on your laptop. Then run a complete scan diagnostic.
After that you can reinstall the OS providing that you have a windows installation disk.

I need a replacement hard drive with boot OS installed. Where and what do I buy?

First, are you still under warranty? If so you want to contact Toshiba.

You can get the replacement drive (Toshiba) for about $39 + shipping from (They have other Toshiba models also). This drive should be available at other sites also.

This is just an example. I am assuming this is the drive model yours shipped with from looking at few sites, I cannot obviously be 100% sure without having looked at it:

As for the OS, Hopefully you have some recovery disks that shipped with the Unit or that you made. If not, you can contact Toshiba support.

Looks like a set are $30 bucks. These DO NOT include a OS license, these are just the disks. You should already have the license.

I va a toshiba laptop tht has an in built vista software now i want to format it how do i proceed

You need to boot up from the OS installation disk and follow the instructions onscreen.

Upon startup the laptop will ask you te press a certain key for booting from cd. If not, you'll have to select your cd/dvd drive as primary boot device via the bios settings.

How can I reboot my Toshiba Equium A200-1V0 and start it as new.

If you are mentioning about 'formating' your laptop, then you can do it with either a bootable OS disk or the recovery CD that comes with your laptop.
NB: Formating the disk will lose all the data in the drive. So take necessary backup before you proceed.
Boot your laptop with the CD inserted. Make sure CD ROM is listed first in the boot option menu in BIOS. Boot from the CD and format and start installing the OS again.
Please come back and rate my solution if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification. Thnx

I need to reboot my toshiba laptop (L300D) without a disk. Can you help?

??? I am not sure exactly what you are referring to, but if you mean that you need to "reload" your toshiba laptop and do not have the system disk, then you can try and see if the laptop has a factory image on a separate partition on the hard drive. In most cases this can be found by tapping F12 while the laptop is booting up. If available this should bring you to a menu where you can choose to boot from optional devices, one being the recovery partition. BE CAREFUL here.. if you choose that option, you will loose ALL DATA. If that recovery partition is not available on that model then you can contact Toshiba and for a small fee they will usually send you recovery disk for that machine. I would recoment visiting their website and have a look a the owners manual for that model and follow the instructions there.

Happy Computing

I need to know how to reboot this toshiba laptop and do not know how to

First, try windows diagnostic. Depress F8 button before the pc boots to windows and select Restore to best known...If nothing happens, try booting to Safe Mode. If it works ok in that mode then you need to reformat your drive. Make sure you use the Restore cd otherwise some or all the features like sound, VGA, etc will not work. When the Restore disk is through, it will prompt for the OS. Simply insert it into the drive's tray and follow the instruction on the screen. Good luck
