My toshiba laptop won't boot up. i have tried the various options on boot up but none of them work and even though it attempts to try and repair the system after a few seconds the screen goes blank. I have spoken to Toshiba and they said that I need to use a recovery disc but I can't find it. They told me I could buy one but it would cost me £30! Are there any websites where I can download the necessary files onto a PC and then copy them onto a disc for installation onto my laptop?

Thanks

How old is the laptop? If not quite new, it is possible that the only thing stopping it from loading up is a flat, or nearly flat, CMOS battery.

If you have a friend with the same OS, perhaps you could borrow their Disc?

Its just over 12 months old. I would prefer not to restor back to factory settings as that will wipe all the data etc from the disc but if I have to then so be it.
