    Hello All

    I have recently been given my brothers Toshiba Equium M70-173. It crashed soon after i got the laptop and would not turn on, a slightly more technical friend of mine managed to get it working but when it turns on the following message is displayed;

    WARNING; immediately backup your data and replace your hard disk drive a failure may be iminent.
    press F1 to contiune

    after pressing F1 i am able to access the laptop, it is unable to staor information due to something being either corrupt or missing.

    OK so after the waffle here comes the question,

    I have bought a new hard drive, whilst in the shop i was told i would need the Toshiba product recovery cd/dvd & the drivers disc? now my brother has neither of these and i do not know how to go about fitting the harddrive if i need these discs once its been fitted.
    doi need the discs? can i make back ups? if not where can i find them from/ are they downloadbale from the toshiba website?

    just so its clear their is nothing on the laptop i need so it can be completley wiped.

    thanks for any info or direction u can provide
