    Thank you, how exactly do I run the recovery without me wiping my documents and photos off my laptop, I need an idiots guide. I've downloaded the the rar file, I just need advice on what i'm meant to do next. I managed to borrow a windows 8 installation disc, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Booting from the recovery disk will not wipe anything in your PC. Since you cannot boot to Windows so booting from the recovery will provide you a way to trouble shoot and fix any errors that prevent a normal boot up.

    Just to make sure, you have Windows 8.1 X64 ? if so, use this download that I create for Windows 8.1:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ecovery8.1.rar
    instead of what I have in step 1 above.

    Once you boot up from the recovery disk, click on:
    US->Trouble Shoot->Advanced Options->Command Prompt
    Then use the procedure in post #3 above.

    No problem. Plug in the stick first then you need to go into the BIOS and set it to be the first boot device

    No problem. You should be able to find out from the Toshiba User Manual. Each manufacturer use different key to access BIOS.

    I've just got into the settings via the blue screen I went to App menu 1. setup there is
    Information Configuration Security Boot Exit
    on the exit settings it says "load default setting" would I be able to use this to start my laptop up and would I loose my documents on my laptop? Thanks again.

    I'm using my Toshiba windows 7 laptop as my Lenovo windows 8.1 is the one causing the problems.

    I've got into the BIOS, what do I have to change so that the usb is set to be the first boot device?
    Thanks again

    Looks like Top Gun may be having his dinner, so I'll answer for him . . .

    Do you see something that says "Boot Order" or something real similar? If you can find the boot order, follow your user manual and activate your USB Stick as the first boot device.
