Question about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook
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.

For recovery you should use the Windows 7 install disc. Place it in the disc drive and restart the computer. Being a laptop, it should automatically boot from the CD, the advantage with the Windows 7 install disc is that it's graphic, so you can simply pick the option for System Recovery from the first window that shows up. If the computer is still working perfectly and only the text-to-speech software was messed up, you can Restore your System without a CD. Also, some laptops have the option to "Restore to factory defaults" you could use this option, but make sure you have a copy or the original disc for the text-to-speech software.
