Maybe you need to change it back?  When you boot, you can always press a key and get the boot menu if you want to boot from a USB device.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

No I tried everything there's no button to press that will do that. It just keeps talking about a USB device.

Is there a program I can download onto a USB device that will help me fix this?

1. Power on the system and while the "TOSHIBA" logo appears, press [F2] key to enter the BIOS Setup Menu.
2. Select [Security] tab and set the “Secure Boot” to “Enable”. (Refer to <Pic.1>)

3. Select [Advanced] tab and go to “System Configuration”. (Refer to <Pic.2>)
4. Set the “Boot Mode” to “UEFI Boot”. (Refer to <Pic.3>)
5. Press [F10] key to save and exit.
 

Thats all..

 

Thanks

That doesn't work it just keeps saying there is no boot able device. 

But I downloaded Hiren's Boot CD to another flash drive and that works so could I use that to fix my problem?

Hello, I am curious as to why you wanted to boot to the USB device, can you please explain that part to me?

 

Thanks in advance for your response.

 

Bruce.

Have you tried leaving the USB device in the USB port and booting up, but instead of allowing the USB device to boot, choose the option offered to you to change boot options.

 

When you add devices to the system that you configure as boot device, it is best to remove or change the order before a device is removed from the system.

It is what we call properly dismounting a device. Take a USB device such as a flash drive for instance. The proper way to dismount a USB device is to safely remove or eject the device.

 

Now that you have an idea of what I am talking about, I have to ask did you remove the USB device in the proper manner so that your computer knows to go back to the default primary hard drive containing your Windows operating system?

 

Bruce.
