Hello, I removed my 100gb hardrive from my toshiba notebook & installed 250 gb hardrive The computer did not come with the xp os cd so i put a clean install of xp pro. Now the computer does not reconize amy of the hardware installed in it. The program seems to work but no sound I can not get on internet to look for drivers. Can I copy the drivers from the other hardrive if I reinstall the old drive. Nothing works except the program.

Why don't you clone the old hard drive onto the new one. Buy a cheap USB adapter or a full USB case/adapter that will change you old drive into a external hard drive and use the FREE software from this site (Easeus Partition Manager 3.0).

You might want to swap the old drive back in to the laptop. download the software. Do the cloning and swap the drives again. Good Luck
