    I have a Toshiba Satellite L505-S5984 that wont boot. It got hit by a virus and Windows 7 no longer boots. When powering up it says Missing Operating System. I tried the F8 and Holding "0" button to call up the restore window, but neither worked. It did not come with a restore disk, and I can not find any on Toshiba's website to download. Any suggestions?

Please follow the directions below to Restore your Operating System to Factory Default:

Unfortuneately the new computers do not come with a restore disk. You are supposed to make one when you get a new laptop. That is something most stores do not tell you. When I bought my laptop at Best Buy they tried to sell that service (making a restore disk) to me. It is just another way for the store to make money. I do not think that Toshiba will furnish this for free. You could try finding a CONTACT US link on their website and ask them. My best suggestion would be to ask around and see if someone has a laptop that is junk but still has a disk. If I knew I would not get into trouble for copyright infringment I would make one and send to you. But I really don't want to get into trouble for it!

Need to wipe out laptop how do i get the recovery downloads


Is your computer still working? You need to create the restore disks using TOSHIBA, TOSHIBA Recovery Disk Creator.

You may have to contact TOSHIBA if you want to purchase restore disk to put it back to the factory condition.
