Did you try a System Restore/recovery? Unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot . Use this procedure to restore to a date before the updates, Did you get the Updates from Toshiba website? https://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/bulletinDetail.jsp?soid=2737864&pf=true The specs show that machine had Windows Vista originally. Do you have a Windows 7 Repair disk? For a disk try here: http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2011/08/download-windows-7-isos-to-reinstall-without-restoring-your-system/ OR here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/windows-7-iso-x86-and-x64-official-direct-download-links-ultimate-professional-and-home-premium/

SOURCE: Toshiba laptop Dual display issue

To switch between screens try pressing the FN key and F5. You should not have to restart you computer. As for the TV error "invalad signal" you might have to change the screen resolution on you computer. You might have to try a few different resolution before you find one your tv accepts.
1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

I hope that you have a goood back-up of file. Getting blue screen error is a fatal OS problem. You need to re-install windows.You need to get the CD that came with your computer or the operating system disc you used to install the windows. Insert the disc on the CD-DVD drive and restart your computer. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD or DVD... message. Installation will start. Good Luck!

You need an antivirus program to be installed after installing your operating system. Do it in safe mode. If problem persists let me know.
