Couldn't get anything to work....recovery discs, recovery partition, nada. So I ordered recovery discs from Toshiba Canada. While I waited for them, I installed Linux Ubuntu 11.04 which worked like a charm for the close to 2 weeks it took for me to finally get the discs. Got the discs a couple of days ago and I went through then entire installation and updated Windows and bam, started getting the issues again.
I've attached the files you asked for...I noticed that one of them says that I'm missing the driver
for the Wireless PCI device but I have actually installed the latest right from the Realtek site and the internet is working fine so not sure what is up with that. And anyway, the problems began before I tried updating that driver.
The bios sees the hard drive just fine and as I said Linux worked fine. Passmark DiscCkeckUp says everything is fine with the HDD. Oh and I scanned for malware with ESET and it found nothing.
