    Just a note on getting help. Using upper case letters to start sentences, etc. and punctuation to show where sentences end along with paragraph breaks to show changes in topics will make it much easier for people here to help you.

    As I understand your problem, you have a new hard drive in your laptop but you have not created any backup image of the old drive before it crashed. Unfortunately, that means you have nothing to restore with True Image.

    What you need is a recovery disk from Toshiba that has the operating system and drivers on it. If you can't find one among the disks you originally received from Toshiba, I suggest that you should contact either your dealer or Toshiba and see if you can get one.
