Default Help with my Toshiba

Hey guys i just recently bought a Toshiba M115-S3094 pretty good computer for the price. I bought it used and it was working pretty damn good until one day i turned it on and it was taking a little longer than normal to boot up. The this message came out. The Following file is missing or corrupt(/windows/system32/config/system) it says to use the setup cd-rom that the computer came with to fix it but i don not have the disc i know you can download it from somewhere but not sure which exactly to download, can someone please let me know what i can or if they have a link for the correct download. Thanks

You were supposed to create a backup disk using the utility that came with your Toshiba. Is there another partition located on your computer?

That's right. Most manufacturers don't include a disk anymore. They instead include a recovery partition on your hard drive that has the contents needed for re installation. They expect the consumer to burn their own disks using the recovery partition.

Call Toshiba for a pair of recovery disks.

They'll probably only bill you for shipping costs...if you could sweet talk them.
