I can not tell you how mad at Toshiba i am right now... after first telling me it's Hard drive issue and that I had to first use my recovery disks and then telling me that my hard drive had to be replace for like $250 I did a random search on the Internet and found this was quite a common problem with rather simple solutions heres the post i read if anyone else should ever have the problem http://www.nocrash.com/ncbbs/msgs/3576.shtml
1) Removed the laptop battery for two and a half minutes and replaced it. This was not a satisfactory solution.
2) Pressed "Delete" on boot up to access the laptop's BIOS. The "Boot on LAN" option was in the 5th position after (1) CD-DVD, (2) Removable drive (read: "3 1/2 floppy drive"), (3) Hard drive 1, (4) Hard drive 2. There is no option to disable the "Boot on LAN" in this BIOS. This, needless to say, was not a satisfactory solution either, since the "Boot on LAN" was not before the hard drives in the boot up sequence.
3) Unscrewed the hard drive access panel, removed the laptop's hard drive and reinstalled the hard drive (making sure the drive's metallic pins were inside the female seating).
all it took for me was step 1) remove battery for 2 1/2 minutes. Don't ask me why this worked but my computer seems to work fine with luckily no memory lost.
