Sounds like they made some changes to your software while being repaired. There is a solution but its not pretty. First, back up all of your files, docs, email, favorites, etc. Then reformat your hard drive. This will wipe it clean of any of the software. This will allow you to load the recovery disk. But I say this you must be warned if you have never re-formatted and loaded an operating system then it would be worth it to get a trained PC repair to do it. I am not responsible for what happens if you do this yourself. However, if done correctly it will solve your problem.

Don't forget to rate this solution.

Sounds like the repair man used a Oem restore disk,You will need to use a OS install disk now and do a fresh install.

yes, theres a great site for toshiba manuals, google toshiba laptop repair guy, and you'll find it.

I think if I remember right, the keyboard has to come off, then theres 1 or 2 screws to remove and it comes out.
