You first need to test for a hardware problem that could be causing the problem.
Run Memtest from a bootable CD you create from the ISO image you download. Then you boot to it and let it run through all tests. ANY errors are reason enough to replace the memory though you can repeat the test with one stick of memory at a time to confirm.

If it passes the memory test, you need to test your hard drive. You need to use the utility from your hard drive mfg or Seatools from Seagate and run the Long test. Minor errors can be fixed by the utility, but major ones or too many smaller one and you will need to replace the hard drive.

If both test OK and the factory restore still does not work, or if you need to reinstall onto a new hard drive and you did not make a set of recovery disks (you should have), you will need to purchase a recovery disk set from Toshiba.

Of course, if you are under warranty still, stop after the tests and contact your warranty center.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Why would you have to do mutiple recoveries? Infections? Did you ever consider using an antivirus program instead? Doing a recovery should be the last resort, not the 1st.

Did you google the error message? It appears the hard drive has failed (probably from all the multiple recoveries <-- lol) & will have to be replaced. Try running a HDD diagnostic disk to confirm.

ok. Here is the deal. My NOW EX-BOYFRIEND who was Very NOSEY decided to take it upon himself to create his own user folder with him being the PC/Owner with a lock on it & download a bunch of stuff & those created additional internet task bars. When, of course, I FLIPPED OUT since asking him numerous times to NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING ON MY COMPUTER and uninstalled those items and tried to do a System Restore to an earlier time it had deleted all of the dates prior to him created a User Folder with a lock on it for him and that with EVERYTHING under him. This is where the problems began. I could not do a "backup", it would quite, I could not do anything but a factory restore and in addition I tried getting on the internet & received eixplore.dll errors. I did call tech support but do not have $150.00 to do another 1yr. warranty so that did not work and the tech guy said I would have to do a factory restore. So, with that being said I am having to use my MOM'S computer and DO NOT WANT to download ANYTHING on her computer that is going to INSTALL & mess hers up. GGGGRRRRRRR!!!!

Please calm down and please avoid using your caps lock and stringing together many words with all capitals. We get the feeling you are shouting, though we are trying to put it down to just being upset and excited.

Please run Memtest and allow it to run through all tests. Any errors and you may need to replace your memory, though you can verify this by removing one of your memory sticks and retesting one at a time. Report results.

If your memory tests without errors, then run Seatools the same way and use the Long Test. Minor errors on your hard drive will be repaired during the test, but many small errors or a major error/problem, would mean replacing the hard drive. Many hard drives may be warranted for longer than the complete computer so check with the computer mfg and then with the hard drive mfg if it is reported as bad. Make sure that in any communication with them you mention the test results from Seatools, though if it is not a Seagate drive, they my want it retested with their utility first.
Report results back to us as well as any other details you may think of that might in any way help us to help you.
