Windows 7 came with your Toshiba, correct?
There should be a sticker on the bottom of your laptop (if that's what it is, assuming it is) with the product key.
As for getting an installation disk.. Do you have a flash drive? 4GB minimum required

yes i do have the sticker but it is worn so bad it is unreadable would it be the same key that is on my windows 7 instalation?

It would. But the key is encrypted in the registry.

Check this out on how to get the key

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/productkeysactivation/ht/windows-7-key.htm

However, most notebooks come with a recovery partition.

When you boot the computer, it should tell you what to press, like F12 or whatever, to launch the recovery.

Try the recovery partition like n1helix said, if you can't then read my guide for installation. I have downloads for the iso's as well, but you still need the key.

use one of these programs to extract your product key from your registry
