Beginning Tues. of this week, my Toshiba laptop no longer boots up onto the windows desktop screen. Instead I had to press F12 until I could get in .
Once in Windows, I tried a system restore from 2 days ago which failed, I tried again from 1 month ago and it failed as well.
I have also lost my D:\ and its contents. I used to have a C: and D:.
Also, when I attached a usb device to the laptop, whether an external hard drive or printer i get a message stating i need usb 2.0 (i never got this before).
i always have antivirus and spyware on , so i don't have virus (or so i don't think so).
what can i do to recover my D:/ and it's contents without having to re-install the entire operating system ?
