Depending on the model your laptop may contain the recovery information on a hidden partition in the hard drive. The Toshiba support site might be a good place to start.

This problem might be caused by a damaged hard disk that will need to be replaced.

Good Luck

yes it does if you read my befuddled notes(apologies)this model has recovery partition but the drive was corrupted and is failing but the answer to my problem was entering bios and changing boot from disc and then run my recovery discs to repair drive thank you for your effort though
