Selling my Toshiba laptop and I want to restore it to default/factory settings. When this was bought did not come with a disc.


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

How do i restore to factory settings?


I have researched Toshiba website. They do not list replacement system DVD/CD there. Did find a listing on Ebay but the item was sold. Checked the manual and there is no information on restoration within it. The result is that I do not see any easy answer for you. You could contact tech support @ Toshiba, generally pay for the call and requrest from them the restoration software. Or you could buy XP CD install the CD and acquire from online the drivers for the computer. Regret that the choices are not better.

Computer Reseting


I have a TOSHIBA TECRA TE 21000 machine. I find that the full screen does not get filled with the window though the resolution is fine. If I change the resolution the screen gets filled but the letters get distorted are most annoying.
