Toshiba laptop won't boot - BSoD Error Code 0xc0000185

My research led me to the below screenshot.

BSoD Error Code 0xc0000185

Toshiba Satellite C55-A5281

The google tells me to insert my installation DVD/recovery disk. I'm not sure what that is and doubt I have it.

Can I download it onto USB somewhere?

Thanks.

Also, any additional advice fixing this issue would be great!

Did you drop the laptop? If so the hard drive itself may have come loose inside. If that's the case...easy fix. Just reseat the drive and you're done.

You could have also damaged the drive, or something else damaged the partition table on the drive. Sometimes that's due to an impact. Sometimes that just happens.

Here's the best guide to fix this.

It starts with the easy things to try.

If you can't do any of that it's a bigger problem and you might have to reinstall Windows. You can make a Windwos install USB drive using this guide

But, you'll probably lose your data doing that.

Solve that problem by booting off a USB drive to Linux. Make one with this guide...
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/de...on-windows

That should give you full access to the hard drive (has a normal graphical interface with windows and such...very easy to use) to let you copy all your stuff to another drive. Then reinstall Windows (or keep Linux) and you're good.
