For a month now, it boots till a black screen with the cursor or to the screen with the five dots. This still doesnt resolve the problem for me. My practice is always to just hit F12 as many times as I can until it registers. It used to show the Win 8 Spinning dots and now it doesnt. How can I stop the boot processs from requesting I press the F1 key? I have tried an external usb wired keyboard aswell as using my laptop keyboard and that had no difference.

Hi, One option would be to temporarily connect an external usb keyboard.
I have tried using a recovery drive but it still doesnt attempt to boot. Place the computer in clean boot and check if the issue persists. However holding 0 after the computer was turned on stopped the computer from loading, when you the Toshiba, display screen. The only solution that I have found to boot normally is after five to six resets. So about one and a half weeks ago, I was snooping around my Discord cache folder before i deleted everything in it just because I was curious about it, and when I reopened the command prompt, I forgot to change the directory and accidentally converted some files in my user folder to.

It's probably best to check with the user guide and see if there is any advice to perform a bios reset or enter setup in Fast Bios Mode. This pc must have had a corrupt area on the hard drive or something.
You are suppose to power off the laptop and hold down the zero 0 key and then press the power button. My question is: how can I now get the machine to accept f2 or f12 once again? Turned it right back on. Do you know the answer? Or does anyone know what kind of image backup Toshiba uses to make the image? I want to do a reload of Windows on my machine, but have accidentally put it in fast bios mode, so I'm not offered the facility of pressing f2 or f12, which I need to do in order to boot from a Windows 7 repair disc. Different models offer different options for setting boot priority. At first, it had trouble booting up correctly.

By the way I didn't mention that my machine starts with an Ubuntu starter screen, from which I have to select Windows 7. I would have to turn it off and on several times before it boots up properly. The boot menu time-out determines how long the boot menu is displayed before the default boot entry is loaded.
