Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

Toshiba A105-s4034 My laptop stopped working about 5 months ago. I tried to restore the computer but found out i had lost the second recovery disc. I bought replacement discs from toshiba but it keeps telling me - check media cable. when i tried running the recovery disc from my external dvd drive it says wrong machine. I have bought 2 sets of recovery discs and both don't work but the original set that is missing the second disc works. I have changed my boot settings so my HDD is first, disable
