Question about Toshiba Tecra 8000 Notebook
When i press the reset button it restarts the computer but everything is the same, all the desktop icons are still there, nothing has changed. I need to know how to reset the whole computer.
Do you mean like bringing the computer to the (OOB) out of the box state?
If yes you need to know if your notebook came with a recovery cd or HDD partition
