Question about Toshiba Satellite L505D Notebook
I have tried to set back to factory settings but when it gets to config part it freezes
Possible driver problem. If its a laptop check if u have all drivers installed. Graphic driver can cause this as well as possible bad video card. Was it working fine before??

SOURCE: restore factory settings
You need to do a new windows setup, erasing completely existing system. I do not know if you can do this from Vista upgrade. You may need to install from a bootable Windows setup disk first, and then install vista upgrade. Once you install the system you may need to download drivers. Here is Toshiba drivers page.

SOURCE: how to restore factory settings
Best bet is to do a system restore to a date before you have problems. Go into start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Your computer automatically creates restore points each time you log on..so once you are in system restore just pick a date that was before you had problems and your system will restore itself to that date...if you have any questions let me know..there are other options if that does not work so keep me updated..

You can follow LavaTech's instructions to set the machine to boot from the cd, and you can load any retail version of windows. You will have to go to http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Product%20Support
to download and install the device drivers.

a couple of ways to do that 1) if you have the recovery CDs supplied with the PC - then you can use these - put the CD into the drive and when it boots follow the instructions 2) If you have a recovery partition on the laptop - have a read here to see if you have one http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=recovery+to+factory 3) This link shows you how to use the partition http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/bulletinDetail.jsp?soid=2291088&pf=true basically as the PC boots TAP F8 key - from the menu that appears choose "repair your computer"
