Question about Toshiba Satellite 2805-S202 Notebook
It is unlikely that Toshiba will be able to provide you w/ the recovery CD(s) for your computer. If you don't have the recovery CD(s), you can install the OS (operating system) using an OEM Windows ME CD.
You'll need your product key code. Check the bottom of your laptop for a COA (certificate of authenticity) sticker with the product key code for the operating system (if it is currently not bootable). If your system is still bootable, the product key code can be retrieved from the system registry. (We can help you w/ that.)
The downside of not using the Toshiba recovery CD(s) is you won't get the bundled software back. (Software that came pre-installed w/ your computer.) If you use a Windows ME OEM (original equipment manufacturer) CD, you'll only get the OS. So, you'll need to acquire the installations CDs for your applications, etc.
You should be able to download all the drivers, etc. that you'll need for your laptop from Toshiba's web site. Do this b-e-f-o-r-e you begin the recovery or OS installation process so that, as you're prompted for drivers during the course of the installation, you'll be able to provide them at the time.
Please, let us know if we can be of any more assistance.
