recovery L455-S5975

[ Edited ]

my windows 7 on this laptop has become corrupted and will not start. i cant even get into safe mode. i press f8 and the only option i have left after trying the others is a hdd recovery which wipes out all my important files.     if i purchase the "free" recovery media from toshiba for 24.99 for this machine , will this give me an option of fixing windows without wiping out my files.? is there another option of a downloadable file which i can create a disc that would be for windows 7 and this machine?

Can you reach the recovery environment by clicking on Repair Your Computer?

 

If not, you can reach it by downloading this recovery disc.

 

   Download Windows 7 System Recovery Discs

 

Judging from previous experience, access to the WinRE will give you about a 50-50 chance of recovering a bootable Windows.

No. The only option is to restore the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents.
