My Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5100 won't boot up.

This laptop was bought from a private seller. I bought it online, these are the system specs. I tried to make a partition on the C drive and after restarting it, the only thing that popped up was an error screen that I can't get past. I did not make rescue disks for it I've tried to restore by pressing "0" (before I turn it on). I have tried to go the start up settings by pressing F8 but the screen just flickers. What else can I do?

This is the link to that error message: http://goo.gl/C24Ux This is my Toshiba laptop: http://goo.gl/8BqbA

I have tried to go the start up settings by pressing F8 but the screen just flickers.

Do you mean you have rebooted and tapped F8 as it first starts to get into the Advance Tools menu?

On my laptop, I tap F8 and it takes me to the same error message.I tap it again and the screen just flickers. The only place I can go to is BIOS by pressing the ESC key.

I can't go to Advance Tools Menu either, just BIOS http://goo.gl/YO4Wh

The goo.gl links don't work well with IE 10 at times, just get the image flash on then off. Must be a better image host you can use?

Have a look at this. Note it's to restore to factory settings and you will lose all data. If you go down that road then you will be able to burn the recovery DVDs and I would do so in case of a hard drive failure.

Can you see the main error screen that's creating all this problem here: http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn274/bassett38/bluescreen_zpsf161c57c.jpg

I can't get past it. I've tried booting with CD, UBS and I don't even know if I'm doing it right anymore...

I can see that ok. Have you set the bios to boot from the DVD first?

I have. I went to "Boot" and found 4 options: http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn274/bassett38/DSC01021_zps2d5b27a6.jpg

That's what's supposed to be if I want to boot from the DVD right?!

You don't have the recovery DVDs so you will have to go down the recovery from the partition in the above link.

Your last post shows it will try to boot from the DVD first but it is of no use to you as you have no recovery DVDs.
