Creating Recovery Media

This section describes how to create Recovery Media.
A recovery image of the software on your computer is stored on the Hard
Disk Drive, and can be copied to either disc media or USB Flash Memory
by using the following steps:
User's Manual
Be sure to connect the AC adaptor when you create Recovery Media.
Be sure to close all other software programs except the Recovery
Media Creator.
Do not run software such as screen savers which can put a heavy
load on the CPU.
Operate the computer at full power.
Do not use power-saving features.
Do not write to the media when the virus check software is running.
Wait for it to finish, then disable virus detection programs including any
software that checks files automatically in the background.
Do not use utilities, including those intended to enhance Hard Disk
Drive access speed. They may cause unstable operation and damage
Do not shut down/log off or Sleep/Hibernate while writing or rewriting
the media.
Set the computer on a level surface and avoid places subjected to
vibrations such as airplanes, trains, or cars.
Do not use on an unstable surface such as a stand.
Select either blank disc or USB Flash Memory.
The application will allow you to choose from a variety of different
media onto which the recovery image can be copied including disc
media and USB Flash Memory.
Please note that some of the disc media may not be compatible with
the optical disc drive connected to your computer. You should
therefore verify the optical disc drive supports the blank media you
have chosen before proceeding.
USB Flash Memory will be formatted and all the data in the USB Flash
Memory will be lost when proceeding.
Turn on your computer and allow it to load the Windows operating
system from the Hard Disk Drive as normal.
Insert the first blank disc into the optical disc drive tray, or insert the
USB Flash Memory into one available USB port.
Click Desktop -> Desktop Assist (in taskbar) -> Support &
Recovery -> Recovery Media Creator.
After Recovery Media Creator starts, select the type of media and the
title you wish to copy, and then click the Create button.

    I purchased a c55 laptop and have no passwords so I can't do anything with it can you help me?

    I purchased the laptop for a song due to a crushed LCD screen
    A few months later a salvaged LCD screen became available but the chassis was a little bit larger at the hinge assembly by an 3/16
    After removing the glass from the lid chassis it fit into the rightful housing.
    O​riginally I'd removed the assembly hinges from the body thus opening the clamshell completely as well the LCD screen associated connector and the black and white (assuming) WIFI connection wires which is the main focus of this post

    I cannot find a service manual/vid​eo/informa​tional of the exact location as the ends appear to snap into a given contact hole
    After chasing the wires through their gides I am left with ambiguous options at best
    Any info would be much appreciate​d ~THX

    This Toshiba labtop satelite c50 is a faulty machine. On the manual it says it had an eject button for to open the CD drive unfortunat​ely it does have one.
    PC world sold me this computer some months ago and I recommend not to use this shop due to selling faulty goods.
    Sta​y away from Toshiba laptop because the faulty has not been rectified.
