Hello, my computer was having a weird problem and kept shutting down on me every so often, so I used the Recovery Disc on my computer, which worked as planned, fixed my computer.
But 1 problem, the hardware disc I had to use with it didn't install my drivers
So now I can't use Wireless, my Microphone or anything that requires Drivers
I used something called "Driver Detective" it said I had 23 out of date drivers.
I'm asking on here to see if there is any solution to this problem, otherwise I will have to pay for the Driver Detective.
Can anyone help?

You should have a "recovery disc" on your computer hard drive already...
Look in "All Programs" and you should see a way to make the recovery discs.
(If not then you may have to buy the recovery discs)
You can use the recovery mode to bring your computer back to an earlier time when it was working right.
Left click on "Start">All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore

Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive). You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it. To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:
Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen
Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended) CAUTION: Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created. Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.
Installing Drivers and Applications The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer. To reinstall drivers and applications:
Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.
Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.
Most times these kinda errors are issue with some kinda corrupted driver. Have you tired to boot in to safe mode. To do so shut down the laptop and when you press power to turn it on start tapping F8 key until advanced windows start up shows up.If you cant i would consider taking it back to store where you got it since pressing this button is not supposed to do anything. Most new computers come with Operating System reinstall built in which kinda sucks since some times you just cant get to it like in your case. Restore disk shoud work and you can try making Bios settings back to original since Vista will boot to the CD/DVD drive if it detects media. If this does not work i would not spend too much time on it and would replace it or have it fixed if you have extended warranty. I would also be very careful about posting Product key on any web sites. Hope this helps.
If you have a windows disc that came with the system, insert the disc while the computer is on. Shut the computer down. Turn computer back on. Your computer should boot to the disc. Delete partitions. Format the hard drive. And reinstall. If you do not have a windows disc contact sony to purchase a recovery disc.

For some models, however -- including those listed above -- booting from the Recovery disc requires pressing the F12 key, rather than the 'C' key. The instructions below are correct for these models. CAUTION: The Recovery process reformats the computer's hard disk drive, which completely erases its contents -- including all applications, all documents, and all other data stored on the drive. Be sure to back up your documents and other data before following the instructions below. Follow these steps to erase the current contents of the hard disk drive and to re-install all of the software that was installed on the computer when it was manufactured: 1. With the computer on, insert the first Recovery disc into the optical drive. 2. Shut down the computer (click the Start button, click Shut Down, select Shut Down, click OK). 3. Press the computer's power button to turn the computer on, and then immediately press and hold the F12 key. Release the F12 key when the menu of boot options appears. 4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the CD/DVD option. Press the Enter key to select it. The computer will restart, and will boot from the Recovery disc. 5. Follow the instructions on the screen to start the Recovery process. CAUTION: Once the Recovery process has begun, do not interrupt it.
The computer's hard drive will be formatted, erasing its contents. All of the software that was installed on the computer when it was manufactured will then be re-installed. 6. Once the Recovery process is complete, remove the Recovery disc, and press any key to restart the computer. - mc/wa
