Lost disk 2 of my recovery & applications/drivers CD for my Satellite P 205
Toshoba Recovery and Applications / Drivers Satellite P200/P205 Series
Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
My computer seemed to have been going very slow and i think i had a virus so i decided to do a restore. After loading the disk and starting the restore i didn't realize that there was 2 disks and the second one is missing. I had kept everything together and don't know if disk 2 was missing when i bought the computer or if i have lost it. I got a friend to load windows vista but i don;t have any of the software that came with the computer of the usb ports and sd card reader doesn't work. How can i get a copy of disk 2 of the recovery & Applications / Drivers

Gateway Direct systems went "media-less" back in September 2004. In the event of a system crash users could either 1) restore their systems from the Recovery Partition OR 2) from the backup media that they were prompted to create on first power-up -- which would provide them with up to 5 blank CD-R discs depending on their system's configuration.
On the factory load of the hard drive, the recovery partition will not contain operating system files. It only contains application and driver files. The first time the recovery partition is used, it prompts the user to insert their System Recovery CD/DVD to copy files from the CD to the recovery partition. The Drivers and Applications CD is not bootable and does not contain Operating System files. The System Recovery CD/DVD is bootable but does not contain any application or driver files. If the end-user erases the hard drive and restores the computer using the System Recovery CD/DVD and an Applications and Drivers CD, the recovery partition is not recreated.
This means that you will need the operating system restore disc FIRST then the recovery partition will work for you
Well, the recovery disks won't allow you to go to your present system. The recovery disks are designed to put everything back the way it was when you bought the computer, minus all your applications and data. If it's your data that you need then a reputable repair service like mine can slave your hard drive to another system and recover all your data (not applications), provided the hard drive has not electronically or mechanically malfunctioned. Again, a reputable repair person can tell you the status of the hard drive.

Use Control Panel's Add or Remove Programs utility to uninstall the Toshiba Hotkey Utility, and then reinstall it.
This program is called E-Key Utility on the Toshiba Satellite M30X/M35X Recovery and Applications/Drivers DVD. It's called Toshiba E-Key Utility for Windows XP on the Toshiba Support website.
Unistalling the Toshiba Hotkey Utility:
Click Control Panel.
Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
Select TOSHIBA Hotkey Utility.
Click OK to confirm that you wish to completely remove the selected application and its features. The InstallShield Wizard will begin the removal process.
Click Finish to exit the InstallShield Wizard.
Re-installing the Toshiba Hotkey Utility using the Toshiba Satellite M30X/M35X Series Recovery and Applications/Drivers DVD that shipped with the computer:
Insert the Toshiba Satellite M30X/M35X Series Recovery and Applications/Drivers DVD into the CD/DVD drive and close the tray. The setup program on the DVD should start automatically.
When the Toshiba Recovery and Applications CD window appears, verify that "Install applications and drivers" is the selected install type, and click Next.
Select E-key Utility from the list, and click Install.
When the WinZip Self-Extractor window appears, click OK.
Click OK to acknowledge that the files were successfully unzipped.

Reinstalling the Toshiba Hotkey Utility using the file downloaded from the Toshiba Support website:
Google "TOSHIBA RECOVERY AND APPLICATIONS/DRIVERS SATELLITE A100/A105 SERIES" to find the cd delivered with a TOSHIBA. the fourth entry shows what appears to be the real thing. On their webpage EDIT>FIND "A15" to locate the CD.
There may be others in the 355 Google pages listed.
On the original factory disk gives a TOSHIBA Phone number, 1-800-457-7777, for support. I think they sell the disk for @$40.
Did you create any partitions on the HDD?
Obviously the HDD or some partitions on the HDD are corrupt.
In my opinion, you should firstly try to format the whole HDD and delete also whole partitions.
Then insert the recovery CD and try to install the Toshiba image
I believe the best way to re-install that is by using the Recovery CD that came with that NB. Just insert the CD, run it inside windows & it should ask you to install applications & driver. Install the camera software and/or drivers and you should be good.
