New hard drive for my Toshiba Qosmio G15 R laptop

\015 I have a Toshiba Qosmio G15 R laptop and my ''C'' drive hard drive is making noise. I have purchased a new hard drive but do I install the Toshiba recovery disk first or Windows XP?\015

Answers :

I believe with Toshiba they normally would give you a recovery disk and then a drivers and utilities disk as well. If you don't have both then I would suggest installing windows xp and then go to this page:http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=835452&rpn=PQG10U&modelFilter=G15-AV501&selCategory=3&selFamily=804517Click on the downloads button and from there choose your operating system and you can download the drivers from that page.You'll know which drivers you'll need by going into the device manager and seeing what has a yellow question mark next to it.If you need more help with this let me know and I'll help you more.
