✔ Best Answer
If you made a set of recovery discs for it using the Toshiba utility in Windows when your laptop was working okay (which you should have made when your laptop was new), boot your laptop from the first disc in the recovery set.

If you didn't make a set of recovery discs, you should be able to order a set of backup media via this Toshiba web page:

Be aware that using recovery discs/backup media will erase everything that's currently on the hard drive, so I hope you already made backup copies of your files. If you didn't, before using recovery media you should remove the drive and put it in an enclosure. Plug it in to a working computer and copy your files to a pen drive or to DVD/CD media.

Then put the hard drive back in your laptop and proceed with recovery using the recovery discs.

You can still order the Recovery DVD's from Toshiba. But also try this. Turn laptop off. Hold the 0 key. Turn Laptop back on while holding the 0 key. If that does not work try F8 on start up then choose repair your computer and see if their is something like factory image.
