I pulled the hard drive out of my laptop while looking for screws to disassemble the keyboard. The laptop is a toshiba l355d-s7809. I unplugged it and then plugged it right back in (the hard drive has no other connections, it just plugs in). When I tried to turn the computer on it told me that the computer was unable to boot, which might have been caused by a hardware or software change. I didn't change any hardware though. On the screen it said that I needed to put the installation disk in the computer and then go to language and then recover. The only disk I have is a disk with recovery drivers and applications, which will format the drive, wiping out all of my saved files and pictures from the last five years. Can anyone help me figure out how to get my computer to boot back up? Thanks in advance for any help.
