place your xp cd in the drive goto the recovery console and type chkdsk and exit after it runs through you should be able to boot after this.

ok when you turn it on it will say hit a certain butto to enter setup on start f2 or f5 or something to that effect go in there and goto boot and change the cd rom to first in the boot order exit and save. Place your xp cd in the drive then start the computer and then hit any key and it will load the setup it will load a bunch of drivers and after that at the bottom it will tell you to hit R to repair this installation hit R and enter the password for the admin account if you have one if not just hit enter and then at the c:\windows prompt type chkdsk.

you need to install the hard drive into another computer and copy the important data off the old drive, you will probably need to purchase either a 2.5" ide connector to standard ide
or a 2.5 " usb drive caddy both of which are fairly inexpensive, then you will need to contact Toshiba to request a replacement restore pack, they should be able to supply oem media as I'm guessing you have a license stamped on the bottom of your notebook

no, im a little confused, one minute you have the cd the next you dont.

If you have the CD, you need to boot from it,

#  Turn the Notebook on with the F12 key.
# The BIOS boot menu appears. Select CD/DVD or the CD-ROM symbol using the arrow keys. Press "Enter".

Then you need to follow venoms instructions, I do urge you to copy all the data off the drive to another drive first though

If you have the knowledge to slave the drive to another drive just slave it and then boot up to the windows on the other drive and goto start run then type cmd and run chkdsk and type the drive letter.  so if it was assigned letter L it would be chkdsk L: and it would fix it.

That can happen sometimes if there is system file corruption. Chkdsk /r can take a LONG time to complete.
Just leave it for a while. It will say 51% eventually.
