if you put it on the same ide ribbon as another drive then youll need to set 1 as master and 1 as slave, theres a jumper setting on the back of your drive. on the top of your drive it should tell you were master is and were slave is, youll need to pull the little black plug out (jumper) and move it to where you want it to be, i.e master or slave
hope it helps

you need to change the first boot device in the "cmos setup" or when you boot your computer before it gets to that stage watch the lower bottom line of your machine there are some instructions to go to the cmos setup Toshiba is either F9 or F12. alternatively at this same stage choose the instruction temporary boot device and and move the highlighting to CD/DVD/DVR and click enter to start the computer from the cd rom
it will work.

So you have an OEM Windows disc with the activation code? You should be able to install the OS from this. Try taking the battery out for an hour then installing XP. Also go into setup and set the CDROM as first boot device. If Windows installs go back and change first boot device to HDD. If it still won't install try a different CDROM drive. I have heard that some CDROM drives will not install XP. I don't know why but I've heard this rumor. There is also a jumper on the motherboard that resets the CMOS to default. I think it is J1, J2? Try switching that to the other position and turn on the unit. Shut down and move the jumper back. That is all I can think of right now.

Keep trying in the hopes that it will trigger, and come back- try the F buttons to get to options to try like System Restore, and see if that works (it probably won't, however).
You will have to reload the Restore CD and try to get it working again. Another possibility is that you have a bad hard drive, and will have to buy one and reload the system.
If you can't reload your system, take it into a computer repair shop and have them evaluate the problem. It could possibly be a bad motherboard, but it can be a memory or hard drive problem, and that should be checked before having the motherboard replaced.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

The hard drive is the problem, it probably has bad sectors corrupting the window file system. The hardware needs to be pulled and tested to confirm the diagnosis.
