There are usaually a standard to getting into BIOS at boot up. Sometimes you have to be quick.
Tha most common keys to press are as follows

1. F1
2. F2
3. F10
4. F12
5. Del

Try those. not all together try a different one on each boot. you must do it during post, and if echo is turned off it is just a timing issue. It must be pressed before O.S. post screen, ie. " Windows" shows on screen.

Let us know if this helped you.

Thank you

My toshbia c655-S5125 lost power in the middle of a disc repair and now windows will not boot. i can get to the bios, but can not get windows to boot from the hard drive or the cd


Sounds like a corrupted operating system. You need to reinstall windows from scratch. Also the hard drive may be corrupted and you may need a new hard drive. Since you can't really do much of anything you will need a copy of the windows OS on disks If the bios will not let you boot from a CD install disk then I suggest you need a professional to help you. You need to have a BOOT DISK in the cd drive for the system to get further than the bios software. If that won't work then your problems are deeper than a corrupted hard drive.

Turn on or restart your computer and watch for a message during the post about a particular key, usually Del or F2, that you'll need to press to ...enter SETUP. Press this key as soon as you see the message.

Go to boot and select the boot order.Use F4 or F5 to change.
First boot device: Cd/dvd drive
Second: the harddrive.
Leave the bios and save the settings.

Place your windows cd in the drive and reboot.
Now you can install windows again.

Good luck

Just put the Recovery Disk in the drive and the system should start booting from it. If not, pay close attention to the screen and when it shows you which key to hit to change the boot order or boot sequence hit it. Change the boot sequence to read from the CD drive. This is a temporary change on the boot sequence.

If you want to make a permanent change to the boot order or boot sequence you will need to hit the key that says enter Bios or System Setup and change it there.

Toshiba satellite pro c650,Built in web cam working satisfactorily till yesterday. now giving message 'unable to find pc camera'. kindly help.


A couple of things to try.
1) Go into your BIOS and ensure that the webcam isn't somehow turned off in the BIOS. 2) Go into Device Manager in Windows, find the webcam. Right click on it and remove it. Then reboot the computer and let Windows find it, and reinstall the drivers again.
3) You may also want to reinstall the Toshiba specific drivers and software which likely includes drivers for the webcam. You may have a CD that came with the laptop, otherwise you can go to

and reinstall the webcam application for your laptop.
Hope this helps!!
