Is it a Win8 machine?

Look at the following article to get into UEFI/BIOS from a Win8 machine.

Usually F2 or DEL keys get you in there during POST. Are you using Windows 8 by any chance?

You can find the user manual here if that helps:

(That was a bit hard to find!)

From what Toshiba says the laptop was shipped with windows 8 64-bit installed but it appears there are windows 7 drivers available for it.  So it could be either.

It looks like your solution may be found here:

Let us know if that works!
