Laptop does not boot up to any device!! WTF?!


Aug 11, 2013
Hey guys. I have a Toshiba Satellite A665D-S6059 Windows 7 Laptop. I was very excited to try out Windows 8.1. So I made an image of my recently installed Windows 8 and began the upgrade. Just as I was checking out the new features of Windows 8.1, it began to lock up very frequently so I wanted to go back to Windows 8 since it was workin there just fine. So after turning off my laptop and turning it back on, it wouldn't boot up to 8.1. :( Here's what I tried:

Formatted drive that Windows 8 was installed in
Re-install Windows 8 using USB thumbdrive that contains Windows 8
Use Windows 7 Toshiba Recovery Discs
all but no avail...:(

It wouldn't boot up to the thumbdrive and the disc!! It would just act like it is booting up to the device by showing a blank screen, but it would keep displaying the Toshiba splash screen that shows up when you turn on the laptop. I am very frustrated at the moment. My laptop has never done this before since the day I got it from my bro who originally owned it. So if anyone can help me figure out what's goin on with my Windows 7 laptop, that would be great! I would hate to throw it out since I don't have the money to get a new laptop/tablet!
