Hi everyone I have a couple of question.

Ok, If the problem is a Windows 7 problem...how will getting a recovery Disc from Toshiba help?

And if i make a recovery Disc from my laptop now...will it actually fix the problem, since i'm making the Disc while the Wifi isn't working?

Thanks so much for all the replies once again.

Yes. It probably will. I can't see why it wouldn't. What you do when you use the recovery cd is that you reinstall some parts of the windows 7. But off course that isn't effecting your personal files or settings.

It doesn't matter what´s working or not when you make the recovery cd, if it would, their would be no point of making it. Right?

Hope this solves your problem!

I thought that u were supposed to make a recovery CD when everything was in good condition (when u first get the laptop) so if anything does go wrong, then u can fix it.

Didn't seem like u could repair a missing or corrupted file with a recovery disc that was made from a system that has missing or corrupt files in it already...cause wouldn't it still be corrupt since u created the disc while it was corrupt?

The recovery CD doesn't work like that. It only allows a copy of your original OP system on your harddrive to be moved onto your primary partition thus replacing the messed up one on your primary partition. You aren't making a copy of the one you have now which is obviously messed up.


Most every laptop comes with a recovery CD rather than the original OP system CD, so in order to perform a recovery the recovery CD is used to move that original copy from your harddrive to your primary partition.

It would be good if you could find or borrow a copy of Win7 for this rather than having to mess with a recovery CD.

So if I created a recovery CD from my laptop now, it would still repair my files?

Yes, but you have still nothing to loose even if it wouldn't.

If you don't won't to waste or don't have a cd you can use a usb memory as described in the link above.

Have you already made a backup of any data you don't want to lose? If not, do that now, before doing anything else.

You should also contact Toshiba and see about getting a set of recovery DVDs just in case.

You could also make an image backup of your existing system, then try the recovery DVD you create. If things don't work out, you always have the image backup you can restore to get back where you are now.

I hv just solved d problem guys.
U should go to control panel and then find ''administrative tool'' (u will find it d third from the left if ur control panel is set to the small/large icon style, not the category style). Then after entering the administrative tool, choose ''component services'' then choose ''services (local)'', then u enable the wLAN component (it is in the third line from the last if I am not mistaken, containing the word ''wireless'') may it help you, thanks
