Look at the speaker icon, on the taskbar, down by the clock.If it has a red circle with a red diagonal next to it, the mic is muted. To clear this: left click on the icon to open volume control and left click the icon. At the same time check that the volume is not turned down. Increase the volume by moving the slider up with your cursor.
Right click on the speaker icon and select "recording devices" Check that the correct microphone is set as default and the sound rises up and down on the graph as you talk. Now move to Skype
Make sure you have the latest version
Sign in > Help > Check Updates
All OK
Click > Tools > Options > Audio settings
Make sure the correct mic is displayed as default - all available options can be seen by using the drop-box arrow at the end of 'Microphone'
Test the volume by speaking and the green tracer should be mimicking the volume
I have the box checked for automatic adjustment
Click > Save and exit

A very easy,but possable expensive,problem to cure. The power switch terminals have been rusted/worn down. either replacing or easily lubricating will solve this. Go to a hardware store and buy a small tube of graphite. Carefully put the tip into the opening in case surrounding it. lightly squeeze and press the switch repeatedly. Or just until it responds.After 5-10 times, replacement is necessary. Power is another possable cause.

Is the restore partition still there or are you using an OS disc? If you have a new OS that is it, there is nothing else to tell you it is complete.

To run Toshiba Recovery:

Choose the Repair Menu in the Windows boot menu (Press and hold F8 at the Toshiba SplashScreen.


Hold the Zero key during Power Up.

If that doesn't work, you may need to order a Recovery Disc from Toshiba.

To make some things clear: Did you reinstall Windows 7 from Toshiba recovery disk or Microsoft Windows disk?
You can use the HDDrecovery feature to restore your notebook to factory settings.

If you have used the Microsoft disk you need Toshiba recovery disk. HDDrecovery is a Toshiba feature and can only be used with preinstalled OS. Therefore it's not enough that you have already saved the HDDrecovery folder, it will not work!

If you don't have a recovery disk you can order it here:

Probably an incorrect driver. Try safe mode and remove video driver, reboot and windows will find the correct one.

An upside down image - this is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key. Some computers do not have this function.

Remove the coin cell battery on the motherboard for a few minutes, long enough for the bios to reset. Reinstall the battery, boot the PC and reset the date and time.
