SOURCE: i have a toshiba a210 1as laptop and i want to

Hi,

What your friends have told you is correct for newer Toshiba models, they do have a "recovery partition"

Here is how you recover the OS >>>>>>

1, Make sure the laptop is turned off.
2, Hold down the zero (0) key and turn the laptop on, keep it pressed in until you see the "Toshiba Recovery Wizard" screen.
3, Choose the "Recovery of Factory Default Software" and click next.
4, The "Recovery of Factory Default Software" will appear.
5, Choose the "Recover to out-of-box-state" you will then get a message that all your data will be lost. Click next and the recovery process will start.

Once complete you will see a message that the HDD has been recovered.

Before you start the recovery process its a good idea to back up any data you have unless you not bothered or have already done so.



Reagrds.

SOURCE: I have a Toshiba Satellite M115. I'm trying to do a sys. restore

Hi Imotivate!

By far the easiest, and most probably the best option for the long run is to ask Toshiba for a replacement recovery cd. It will most likely cost you, but it's worth a shot. Finding an authorised Toshiba dealer can be found by using their helpful website tool found here : http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/gaspLocator.jsp?pf=true.

Hopefully this will point you in the right direction to get a replacement sent out to you!

I have a toshiba satellite L645D how can I format it to the factory settings like it just came out of the box.


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. Thanks.

I need to factory reset my Toshiba Portege 2000. I do not have the disc.


This is hard without the recovery disc. You can either:
  1. Order the recovery disc directly from Toshiba
  2. Buy the disc on eBay
  3. Try to find an ISO download and burn the disc
  4. Install another operating system (such as Linux or XP) and get the drivers
The most reliable way would be via Toshiba.
