    Hi,
    Trying to fix a mates laptop, had lots of issues so tried to put it back to out of the box state but when loading the disc's on 2nd disc fails to read and I get an error. Tried buring it at min speed but still no good.
    Just wondering where I would get them from. Model number is: PSAG4A-02E00M.
    Cheers,
    Matt

    It looks like it scratched and some files can't be read. As I know, the 2nd Dvd contains drivers/utilities that you can install yourself from Toshiba driver pages. It depends on model:

    [Canadian Toshiba Driver Page|http://support.toshiba.ca/support/Download/ln_byModel.asp]

    Unfortunately, it's not free to order recovery disk, you have to pay. For European models, you can order here:

    For other models (country regions), you should check on above mentioned sites

    If you are from Australia or New Zealand contact nearest Toshiba service and ask if they can obtain original discs for you.
    Other way install OS using Microsoft installation disc and additionally all necessary drivers, tools and utilities.
    You can download them from Toshiba Australia support page.

    Just follow link given by Jeka.
