I carry this under 8 buck thing with me. I lose it once in awhile when the person keeps it.

Yes, you could try reloading the OS (you did) but most can't find all the drivers and many forget the HELPER APPLICATIONS. Sorry but Toshiba seems to use something called TVAP and again, why should anyone know that?
