Using the Easy Restore disc on my Toshiba A70

When I load the restore disc it gives a prompt saying that it will destroy all data on the hard disc and restore the operating systems and applications pre-installed. Does this mean that all files, pictures etc stoted on the hard drive will be reomoves too...or will they still be accessible once the operating system has been restored? Cheers

All of them will be deleted. You need to do a back up before running restore disc. it will definitely reformat the hard drive.

Cant restore to factory settings tried 0,f1 and f8 none work


When your Toshiba Satellite laptop goes on the fritz, there are several instances where the best solution is to delete everything and start over. If your system frequently crashes or you can't remove a specific virus, you may want to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. While the easiest way to restore the system is to use the operating system restore disc, it is possible to restore the system without it. Each Satellite laptop also includes a hard drive recovery utility that lets you restore the operating system without the restore disc.

1. 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.

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

3. 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."

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

5. 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.

6. 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.

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

If you have used the discs to try and restore your laptop, it will have formatted and destroyed all data.
Download your version of windows from microsoft and a fresh install may get you going again, unfortunately you will have to restore your data from your last backup and don't forget to download the drivers from Toshiba.

How to factory rest


  • 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.
The hard disk drive restore utility is saved on a separate partition on the Toshiba laptop's hard drive. If that partition has been formatted you won't be able to use the restore utility. If you don't have the operating system recovery disc and the partition has been formatted, you will need to contact Toshiba's customer support to have them send you a new disc.

All of your existing data will be permanently removed from the hard drive when the factory restore process has finished running.

Error : 10-FC12-0570 when i try to reinstall with the cds


Error 10-FC12-0570 on Toshiba satellite This error message means that the recovery utility was not able to read the data from the disc correctly, or wasn't able to write it to the hard drive.
The problem could be with the disc, the CD/DVD drive or the hard drive.


Solution:

Try copying the second disc using another system. If it's impossible: order for a new disc. If you can copy it, try using the copy to do the restore.

Try using a third party disk checker to verify the problem, is or is not, with the hard drive.

The best way would be to load the Windonws Vista discs, format the pc and reinstall.
(Vista Recovery Boot Cd is available free by Microsoft). Download it burn the Image .iso and run that disc. That disc will not restore the OS: run diagnostics on the HDD; once disk check is completed and repaired, proceed with the Recovery disks that you have.

Need to hard restore Toshiba Satellite L305-S5945 to its orginal state. How do I do that? The Satellite L305-S5945 is the correct product info not the L305-S5941. It is a laptop.


For the very original state you'll need the Toshiba discs. Insert the one that's labeled as needed to restore your system and boot to it. At one point you'll be promtped to delete the existing partition (this wipes your data) and then you can reinstall Windows on the empty partition. If yo udo not have the Toshiba discs, you can still load Windows using a Windows installation disc, but you will likely need to find the missing drivers for your laptop, so don't go this route unless you are comfortable with it.

If the system can not boot, you can restore it from the WinPE environment. The system starts from the hidden partition on the hard drive. To begin the restoration, press Alt + F10 (PC Tower) or F10 (laptop) to boot the PC and when the Acer logo appears. This will start the system from the hidden partition the hard drive and you access its main page. The restoration will be on partition C:. The partition D: (ACERDATA) will not be formatted, and therefore documents will not be deleted but it is always prudent to think about making a backup of your most important documents in case!
Note: You will be asked to enter the password before the System Restore starts. If you enter the wrong password three times, the computer will restart into the operating system.

You must enter the password to access the main page of the hidden partition. The main page of the hidden partition provides three options to restore the system:

1 - Restore the system to factory default settings: Select this option and then enter the password. The utility will restore the system from the image of the factory default settings on the hidden partition on the hard drive. When prompted, confirm the system restore. A message will warn you that you will lose all data on the disc. The utility then restores the system to its original state.
2 - Restore the system from backup user: Select this option and then enter the password. The utility restores the system from the image of the user on the second partition on the hard disk. When prompted, confirm the system restore. A message will warn you that you will lose all data on the partition. The utility then restores the system to safeguard user the most recent.
3 - Restore the system from the CD / DVD: When this option is selected, insert the first disc of the backup in the optical drive. Confirm System Restore when prompted. A message will warn you that you will lose all data on the partition. The utility will restore the system from the backup image on CD / DVD. Insert the other disks when prompted.

Note: If you are trying to restore the system to its factory default settings stored on CDs / DVDs, Acer eRecovery Management prompts you to insert disc 2 to start.

Good Luck

Toshiba satellite A70-KL1 notebook shuts down


Scan the Computer using any latest updated anti virus program for any potential threat.

If the computer is not infected by any virus or trojan then you may also try performing System restore to the time when the Computer worked normally.

If the Computer keeps shutting down randomly after turning ON then the Power Supply Unit in the Notebook requires service.
