Question about Toshiba Satellite L955-S5370 : Laptop Notebook - Intel i5-3317U Up to 2.60GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology - 6GB RAM - 640GB HD - 15.6 inch display
First two weeks of use were OK, not perfect. I assumed it was a Windows 8 issue. Then, screen would freeze or computer would shut down and restart. Got different pop up messages.."Recovery- looks like Windows did not load correctly.." "Restart...OTHERWISE...contact someone you trust to help you with this." I am not making that up. What kind of message is that??? I was 5 days beyond returning for a refund. I will NEVER, EVER, EVER....get back together....with Windows. GGGGGRRRRRHHHHH
Ah c'mon, everybody loves Windblows!
"Restart.......otherwise.......contact somebody who gives a rats a**.
(Yes. I censored that)
I'll tell ya what...........
They make GOOD boat anchors for toy boats. (Ken and Barbie size)
If you skip one across the water, flung out of a boat doin' 40, them babies will S-K-I-P!
Toosh,...... toosh,....... toosh............look at it GO!
Feel better now that the laptop has been Properly slammed?
Some big eared galoot stated wiping the harddrive, eh?
Meaning what exactly?
You have the Restoration Disk in hand?
Told to perform a Full Install? (Destructive Installation)
You were instructed to perform a Full Install using the Recovery files on the harddrive?

Looking at reviews, the earliest I have seen is November 29, 2012.
Means this laptop is definitely still under warranty.
Best Buy, or Office Max, or whoever; doesn't want to honor it; doesn't matter. They can go stick their finger up their collective noses.
Toshiba on the other hand -> Better!
Here we contact the State Attorney General's Office, of our state; and the Consumer Division.
(Consumer Division. Not all have this entity. They do have an entity like it, however)
File a COMPLAINT.
The S.A.G.O. will smoke 'em like the Fantastic Four on Doc Ock!
Up to a $10,000 a day fine, I hear.
The UK, and Australia have this type of entity too, I have been told.
Your laptop has issues of a hardware nature, and a simple software fix isn't going to do it; plus YOU are not responsible, therefore should not pay a dime.
For additional questions please post in a Comment.

It sounds like two possible things. One thing may be that your screen is not working anymore. Can you get a monitor and plug it into your port located on the side of your laptop? If your screen pops up on the monitor this tells us your screen is either in need of replacement or a connection may be loose.
If that is not the case......
Another thing is your hard drive may not be initiating. If you feel confident enough I would open the back where the hard drive is located and make sure the hard drive is not loose. Does it give you any beeping sounds when you turn it on? Can you count the number of beeps? This will tell you what the problem is on boot up. Also, is it a black screen with a cursor blinking?

1. after recovery is done, you dont find sound on your machine
2. no problem, download the Pcwizard 2008 from the given link
save it & install it in your computer, it will give you your all
devices name and model number...
4. note down your device name and model number and download
the drivers from the given link.
If you want to Re-install your OS you can re-install and follow the above steps, hope you will solve your problems.
all the best.. try it..

unfortunately when this happens it means your computer is suffering from a catastrophic system failure. In this case brought on by the hard reboot.
you can reorder a set of disk from www.toshiba.com. sorry it's not better news.

1. Click the Windows Start button.
2. Click Control Panel, System and Maintenance and then Device Manager.
3. Right-click on Chicony USB 2.0 Camera and select Update Driver Software. A yellow exclamation point indicates that the camera is recognized by Windows but is not working properly, probably because of problem with the device driver
4. Select Browse my computer for the driver software.
5. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
6. Select USB Video Device from the list, and click Next.
7. If the message “Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device” appears, click Close.
8. Restart Windows.
The webcam should now work properly.

That sounds a little bit drastic . . . and probably unnecessary.
First, hold down the power button on the notebook for about 5 seconds - until it switches off. Wait a few seconds, then press the power button once to switch on again. Shortly after switching on, you should be presented with a list of options. Use the arrow keys to highlight "Start Windows Normally" then press ENTER.
You can't re-install from the backup discs if the notebook is frozen - you need to switch it off first. The backup discs can then be installed either at startup or after loading Windows. If Windows starts up normally after powering off, you shouldn't need to do anything else. If it still fails to start, please post back for further assistance.
