    Toshiba has recovery disks.

    That happens when the computer can't find the boot partition. Re-seat the disk drive, make sure you don't have any USB flash drives plugged in, try again.

    You may be able to fix this with a utility like teskdisk if something happened with the partition. http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
