Most Toshiba laptops can be factory reset by holding down the 0 key (zero) then turn the unit on and keep holding down the 0 key when you hear long bleep it should then be loading system files at that time you can release the 0 key and it will continue to load fresh copy of your windows system. If this is a new unit to you then it should not be a problem but if you have anything stored then just a warning it will delete any files in documents,pictures etc. good luck!

You can find the port number by going into the control panel.

Find the device manager and look at the list of ports.

Your network adaptor may not be using a port, just memory to access it, in which case under the network device it will have a resource tab showing the memory location.

It sounds as if you only have a user account.

Ask the person who repaired it to supply the correct admin account and password.

Does the BIOS recognize your hdd? If it does, you're OS is corrupt. Can't get to the BIOS? Take out the battery, press the power button for 1 minute, after the minute is up, poor the battery back, turn on the laptop. This is something more like a reset, if there was a problem with the BIOS, this should fix it. If it works, go to the BIOS and check if the hdd is listed. If it isn't, then there is a problem with your hard disk. I'll be more than glad to help you out, just let me know in the comment section. Best of luck.

As long as it will boot from a USB drive in a caddy, yes. However, it will run slower.

First try pressing down the power button for up to 10 seconds or until the laptop powers down. Wait a couple of minutes and see if the computer reboots properly. If it does, fine, if not power the laptop down again and again wait a couple of minutes, power on and press F8 whilst it is booting to get a menu up which should say on one of the entries something like "revert to last known good settings" Highlight this option using the keyboard arrow keys (mouse won't usually work here) and pressing return.
This should set your computer back to before the update that is causing the problem.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

The wireless WIFI internet key is decided by your ROUTER not your laptop. If your internet connection is indeed by wireless and not by ethernet cable, you will need to find the router key, from your internet provider, guardian or if you are desperate, find the reset key on your router to reset the passkey to the factory default which will be shown on a sticky label on the router or in its manual. Punch this into the windows dialog box when required. Good Luck.

It needs to go in for a replacement motherboard as the graphics card is on the motherboard, so the LCD and the external video come from the same chip.
Changing the graphics drivers would be worth trying, just in case it is worth saving.
Download them from here depending on your operating system.
