comment Are there free tools for detecting obsolete drivers?
If Dell doesn't provide them, I would not recommend updating. Dell and other manufacturers use customized drivers in most cases, where the updated driver may only be a generic driver. Updating can cause issues.

comment Windows 7 Recovery
Sounds like the hard drive is failing if the RAM is passing, time to take it into a Toshiba authorized repair center if its under warranty: warranty.toshiba.com or just replace the hard drive, you may need to contact Toshiba and order recovery media to restore Windows if you did not burn recovery media shortly after you purchased the computer.

Toshibas usually have three partitions a 1GB boot partition with the WinRE .wim, your OS partition and the third partition is the recovery partition, which strangely enough has a WinRE environment as well.

Try testing the memory, memtest.org, if it doesn't boot, try one stick at a time.

Toshiba's do not use .wim files for recovery, except to store Windows Recovery environment. Toshiba has its own image format at requires Toshiba Recovery Wizard to restore the computer to factory default.

comment How to start up a program as administrator in Windows 7
This won't work as with Windows Vista/7, you do not run as Administrator, even if your account is part of the Administrators group. UAC is required to escalate the user's privileges and it is only for that process.
