How to restore toshiba labtop with no disc


Hello

Well, if you have no Installation disc, or no cd/dvd rom in this specific model, you should have a recovery partition.

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.

Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

If this procedure doesn't work, you don't have a recovery partition set up, hence, you will need the installation disc.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

I have a toshiba p205d-s7436 when you turn the laptop on a black sceen reads toshiba leading innovation i tryed putting recovery discs in will not reboot tryed f12 and f2 it will not boot up PLEASE ANY...


The first step is to check the BIOS to see if your hard drive is listed. If so, is it set to be the first boot device. To enter the BIOS, use the F2 option when prompted.

If the hard drive is not present, it's either come loose, or the drive's controller has failed.

Also, if you can use the F12 option to boot to a CD/DVD drive, use another computer to download the Ultimate Boot CD iso from http://ultimatebootcd.com, and then burn it to a CD. This will create a bootable diagnostic CD that you can use to run diagnostics of your hard drive.

Let me know how this works for you.

Sincerely,
James O'Brien

I have a satellite U300 toshiba computer and i'm on the boot menu


Hi,
If your just wanting to boot into Windows then choose 1. HDD Toshiba.
If your wanting to reinstall the operating system with your recovery disks then you will need disk 1 in the CD drive and when the menu comes up choose 3. CD/DVD.



Regards.

Dear sir\ma, I have toshiba satellite u300 which i want to upgrade to ultimate but after i download window advisor it told me that my computer does not have a DVD drive,which i need to download.pls help...


May be, that advisor made a mistake. DVD drive is required to setup the operating system from the dvd. As you said, toshiba satellite u300 has a dvd writer. that can surely read dvd. Please ignore that message if you can play dvd on your laptop.

thanks

Hi, I have an ASUS W1000 laptop and I am having problems with the CD/DVD drive. The computer can still read the hardware as I have uninstalled it and the restart automatically reinstalled the drive....


my Solution is to purchase an external dvd writer and use that as the internal onse dont last long as the heat from the laptop can cause problems to the connectors to the dvd burners.

hope this will help.
