Question about Toshiba Satellite L25-S119 Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba L-25 Laptop

I attempted to do a system restore with the recovery disk today. I placed the recovery disk in the drive and powered it on whle holding the"c" key as the instructions stated. Once the Toshiba page came up, I released the"c" key, and my computer shut off. I cannot get my computer to power back on. I had sent my computer to Toshiba approximately 6 months ago to have some problems fixed before the warranty expired, and it worked fine until today. Any suggestions?

Hello,

If my answer has helped you today please offer four thumbs up as thanks!

Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.


Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.


Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."


Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.


Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.


Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

If my answer has helped you today please offer four thumbs up as thanks!

Will not boot to windows xp


There is a cost free remedy you can use if your hard drive will not boot up, or when you have a BLACK SCREEN. This radical resetting of the computer is called a system recovery (not a system restore) This will put your computer back to factory settings but you will lose any files on your Hard Drive like pictures, music and word documents.

1. THIS IS HOW IT WORKS :Some older computers and ALL Toshiba laptops come with a system restore disk. Simply place the disk in the CD tray and hit ENTER, if that does not work, power the computer off and on with the disk in the tray, wait for the special system recovery screen to appear, (be patient)

2. If you were not issued with a disk, then the following is for you.
Each computer manufacturer has a special key you have to hit WHEN YOU POWER ON the computer.
HP and Compaq desktops/towers/laptops F11, E Machines and Gateway F11,
Sony PC/laptop F11, IBM and Lenovo towers and laptops all use F11 function key for system recovery.
Dell laptop use Ctr + F11
Acer and TRAVELMATE Laptop Alt + F10
Toshiba laptop F12

3. Here is the trick- power the computer off, and then power it back on and start tapping the appropriate key eg F11 until a screen pops up saying "DO YOU WANT TO DO A SYSTEM RESTORE" OR "WELCOME TO SYSTEM RECOVERY MANAGER" Once you see something appear on the screen, stop tapping and just follow the instructions. Some of the older computers may ask you for the restore disks so have those ready. Most newer computers do not need restore discs. The whole system restore could take 2 or 3 hours. When done, reboot your computer and it should be all new and speedy again.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

System restore factory settings no cd


Toshiba has built in system recovery partition in your hard drive

Make sure to back up important files in your Laptop to usb or portable hard disk before doing this.

Warning: In using System Recovery you files will be deleted, your laptop will be back to its factory settings

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.
