    Hello friend...

    First of all check if the new HDD is listed and recognized in BIOS.This should be listed on the first bios page.

    If its listed then save the changes pressing f10 and access the BIOS...

    And also check for the SATA drivers to...

    If those drivers are not installed then install those drivers by downloading at the intel page.

    And after all this has not worked..

    Then you may try to restore the factory settings of the laptop..

    To restore the laptop follow the steps given below:

    ->hold down the power button for 10 secs to switch of your system.

    ->press and hold the 0(zero key) and at the same time tap the power button to switch on

    ->When the system starts beeping release the 0 button

    ->Now a prompt window appears then select yes to continue.

    ->select recovery of default software and click next

    ->select recover to out of box state.click next again

    ->And click next to start recovery...


    NOTE:ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED FROM YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED.

    Hope this may help you...

    You can format the disk and repartition it again or leave the whole disk for windows to use.

    Having a single partition in a disk is a waste of disk space and reason for slowness of the execution time.

    You can create as many partitiones you require,

    Insert Windows Installer DVD into optical drive after formatting the drive and follow the simple interactive session and Windows will be installed without problem.

    Hi,

    For fixing of disk error into your Toshiba Laptop, there were few reasons. It may be your disk having bad sectors. So, firstly you need to format whole disk and create small size partition (C where you are installing windows 7.

    You should run CHKDSK Utility for fixing disk related issue.

    Then insert your Windows 7 DVD into your CD drive and go through it.

    Thanks

    5.If you system is compatible then you can install it other wise you cannot.

    have a nice day.........
