I have a Toshiba L755 with Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bit with a 640 GB hard drive. I had a hard drive failure and had to replace the hard drive. I replaced the hard drive and went to use the restore discs to reinstall my OS and all of my Toshiba application and it will not complete the setup. I have 4 discs and after each disc it says to put in the next disc. I do this and when the 4th disc completes it continues to ask for another disc. I went the install process of the discs 6 times but it did no good. I ordered a second set of restore disc from Toshiba but I am still having the same issue. Can someone help me. I don't know what to do. It will allow me to install a copy of Windows 7 Home Edition and use the key on bottom of laptop but then I cannot get my original Toshiba apps back. I want to restore laptop to out of the box.

Enter your model number, and there should be a link in the left column called 'Applications.' You'll have to download any that you are missing, and install each one separately.

Once you have everything loaded and in place, you should 'Create a system image.' so you don't have to go through all this again. This is a function of windows that will back up everything as you see it (operating system AND all installed software). You will need a large flash drive, or enough DVD's to handle the amount of Hard Drive being consumed.

Just type 'Create a system image' into the start button search bar to start the process.

I did try to do that but it says that some of the applications are not compatible, plus I installed some drivers and when my computer went to restart it had problems and restored itself to before I added anything.
