Perhaps you need to disable some of your startup programs. You have ugraded to Win 7? Has this been happening due to the Win 7 upgrade? In Device Manager are ALL the devices working? No unknown devices? Any graphic driver issues?

SOURCE: need a toshiba portege R500 vista recovery disk

Toshiba Factory Reset
a couple of ways to do that 1) if you have the recovery CDs supplied with the PC - then you can use these - put the CD into the drive and when it boots follow the instructions 2) If you have a recovery partition on the laptop - have a read here to see if you have one http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=recovery+to+factory 3) This link shows you how to use the partition http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/bulletinDetail.jsp?soid=2291088&pf=true basically as the PC boots TAP F8 key - from the menu that appears choose "repair your computer"
If that option is NOT available then you will need to Order CDs from Toshiba - http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/System-Recovery-and-Recovery/Recovery-media/m-p/9148#U9148

Hello! I have the Toshiba Portege R500/Win XP.Now it does not see the hdd. I removed the hdd and checked it with another PC-it works. BIOS does not see the hdd too. What to do? Halp me please. Vlad


Only option is to get BIOS to recognize the hard drive. No going forward without it. You could try loading the BIOS defaults. Saving, and rechecking.

After installing windows 7 my optical driver controller could be detected?


Check in device manager (Right click on the Computer Icon and click on "Manage" then select Device Manager) and right click anywhere in that menu and select "Scan for Hardware Changes". If that doesn't work, try installing the Toshiba Software Pack at http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&moid=2007539&src=EXPL

Installing XP on Toshiba Portege R500 Notebook


Guys, if you have the genuine XP CD, please download the Storage Driver from Intel and slipstream it into your version of XP CD. You can also slipstream Service Packs into it as well.
Personally I hate Vista so much. It really brings out the angry devil in me.
By the way, the best and easiest way to slipstream is to install and use nLite http://www.nliteos.com/
Let me know if you want help on installing XP on R500 (I build it a few days ago, but regret to update the BIOS to version 1.06 as I lost the Ctrl key on it).
To get to the BIOS, press and hold the Esc key then Power button.
