Question I need a new hard drive...but cannot find out what kind

I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop, M35X-S109.

The hard drive is shot due to a good fall off of a table. I have brought the computer in to work and my IT dept has been looking at it but cannot determine what type of hard drive I need. I have already bought and returned a SETA and Ultra ATA 100 style.......neither of which matched up to my machine. I have been trying to find this information online, but have been unable to, and would really appreciate any help you can give me.

Ten bucks says it's a SCSI drive. Do a google image search on them and see if any resemble what you have.

Personally, I'd just call Toshiba and ask for a replacement.
