    I damaged the original drive on my Toshiba Satellite. So I bought a new Toshiba HHD for it. Originally when I first mounted the drive, I got an error saying the drive was not formatted NTFS so it would not install the OS. So I put the drive in my other laptop and formatted it (yes - NTFS). Now I put the freshly formatted drive into the laptop I want it to run on, I install the windows_7 and all goes good until I am personalizing the computer section when I noticed it didn't ask me about setting up the network or any other thing except for the time & zone. Once it rebooted I had the OS running but can't connect to the router. Long story - short...I wiped the drive - reformatted - reinstalled windows...Same Issue. For some reason it will not load a bunch of the hardware drivers, so it doesn't recognize things like the NIC.



    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    The best thing to do is head over to the Toshiba site, find the make & model of Satellite you own, and then download the appropriate drivers for it. Drop them on a flash drive or CD, and then run the installers on your laptop.
