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.

the flex of your is either getting weak or it has shifted from its original location.. the flex is what connects the screen to the panel of the laptop and when it has a problem you experience lines on your screen..
what you should do is to open up your laptop and try to set the flex to its normal position and see if it stops the lines on your scree, if it doesn't then you have to change the flex
if you cant open your laptop,get someone with experience to help you
Your laptop is apparently unable to boot up off an external usb source. Only newer equipment has this provision in the bios. Since you cannot boot up from usb the only way you can recover your unit or do a clean reinstall or repair of xp is to replace the internal drive that is allegedly defective.
Replacing the optical drive is fairly easy and does not involve massive disassembly of your laptop. And any cheap drive will work provided it has the same physical configuration as the old one.
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.
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.
