Hi, if i understand your PC is running slow and craching. ok there could be coursed by a few things but lets do the most probable ones first.
1 - RAM, if you go to the start menu and right click "my computer" in XP or "computer" in vista then properties under memory there will be somethink that says ****GB of Ram ( * being numbers). if you r running vista this should be 2GB or 1GB min. if XP 1GB will run well. if your RAM is not this high then you have to upgrade it. if you still have your manual some times they have the spesifecations at the back and you can find out the max RAM your PC will take and what type it will take. if you dont have the manual you can find this information out by just typing into google eg "dell 2400 spesifications or RAM, etc". when you know what RAM you need then just us google to find the cheapes place to buy. again your manual should tell you how to put it if not you should be able to find it on google.
2 - removing any unwanted software from your PC does speed it up, you can also try defraging your PC - right click C drive properties defrag is under one of the tabs.
3 - Spyware some times spyware can slow your PC down make sure you have an up to date spyware scanner and run a scan.

Not enough information to answer. Need manufacturer and specific model number before we can help.
Generally, though, laptops come with one of three ways to restore.
1. The manufacturer supplies a restore disk. This can be a self-booting image of the original load, or it can be an OS disk and an accompanying drivers disk that needs to be installed to restore the unit.
2. The manufacturer provides an application on the drive that the user is supposed to use at the time of purchase to create a set of recovery disks. This application is usually a 1-time-only thing and you cannot make multiple recovery sets with the app, but you can burn copies of the disk(s) you make.
3. The manufacturer places a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive that allows the user to restore the original factory image. There is usually a hotkey combination written into the BIOS that will divert the boot to the recovery sector when pressed at bootup.
Some manufacturers offer both options 2 and 3. But if you got a set of recovery disks at time of purchase, chances are there is no recovery partition on the drive. Recovery partitions are nice and convenient until the problem is the hard drive itself.
If you can provide a specific model number, we may be able to better determine which type of recovery option(s) are available for you PC.
If you download and install windows updates and updated drivers from Toshiba that may fix your problem otherwise press F8 just before it starts to boot and choose restore if the restore partition is still intact on the hdd.
You will need to try reloading the operating system of the computer, this is on the recovery disks you should have made when you first bought the laptop. If you do not have the disks contact the manufacturers support site for details on ordering the recovery disks
put up the backup cds which was given at the time of buying or you can download laptop backup file from your manufacturer and you can restore it
press f8 try to go to safe mode or last restore point and you can restore it
