Go here: And download the drive fitness test, burn it to a .ISO bootable CD, and boot from the disc. Run a FULL SCAN and it will tell you if the HDD is bad, which is highly likely.

Have a Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV411 and downloaded windows 7 last night. worked fine then I put comp in to sleep mode when I tried to turn on today looks like it is booting up and then goes to a black screen...

Try to boot up the computer using safe mode first. Keep on tapping the F8 key the moment you turn on the computer. If your computer wont boot to safe mode then you need to re-install windows 7.

QOSMIO E15-AV101 PC Notebook: just installed windows 7 ultimate, clean install, ...

Okay in some case windows 7 does not pick up the network drivers so you will need to download and install the network drivers for your laptop from another computer and then copy those files to a pen drive and then connect it to your laptop and install it, however I do see that your laptop driver support page does not support other OS other than windows XP32. Please refer the link below and download both the drivers and install it, that is the driver for windows XP it should probably get installed and work for windows 7.
