Re: when pc comes on it says it is missing windows
Try pressing F8 repeatedly at boot up and choose 'Last known good configuration'. If it doesnt work, sorry but you need to reinstall windows. Look for your windows cd and call toshiba for a walkthrough in windows reinstallation. This means though that all your files will be erased and the computer will be reprogrammed.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow myinstructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-
Sounds like you have a bad backlight fuse on the MOBO. It can be fixed but you will have to figure out which fuse it is. It should be somewhere near the video connector, but it could also be a transistor. You would need proper testing equipment and schematics to locate your problem child if that is the case.
I've been working on a Satellite 1415-S115, and found the CMOS battery. You will have to open up the 'clam shell' and remove all of the B25 and F6 screws from the bottom, as well as the B16 and B6 screws under the keyboard. To remove the keyboard, I had to pry up the trim piece that holds the power button and remove three screws. Be careful of the wireless wire leads, as you'll be tempted rip them out!
The CMOS battery will be under the right side of the hand rest, next to the mouse. It has two leads and the battery is in a blue 'bag'.
There is too much information that is need ed here. I would go to your internet provider and have them sort it out for you..
For example, for Verizon you can go a local cellphone store to get it checked.
