    I have a toshiba c655-s5305 laptop which originally had windows 7 home addition installed.I wiped the hd with dban nuke and destroy to replace the is with win 7 professional.During install I'm getting a message that says missing cd/DVD device driver.When I purchased the computer from Bestbuy I didn't receive any Sys restore disc.Is there anywhere on the web where I can get the necessary driver to complete the install?

    Have you tried the Toshiba website? Or the website of your CD/DVD drive manufacturer?

    hiya,on startup tap F1 when it flashes up to enter BIOS,look around for the dvd/cd lies and make sure enabled,if you cannot find anything try clicking on set minimal defaults or something similar
