Back up all of you data to an external drive before you begin the process If you make a mistake during the process, your laptop may not be able to turn on or load the operating system, so copy valuable information to media where you can retrieve it, even if your laptop malfunctions. Turn on your system and wait for it to finish loading Windows and start-up programs. You can tell when the operating system has loaded, and start-up programs have been initiated, by the HDD (hard disk drive) light. It should have came with discs. Put one in and reboot the laptop Insert the system disk when the hard disk light stops blinking, signaling that the processor has finished accessing the hard disk, and that the system is idle. Shut down your laptop after you insert the disc. You do not have to wait for the computer to access data from the disc. Turn on the laptop again. Keep pressing the "C" key continuously as the system boots. This will enable the laptop to boot from the disk. Once the disk is accessed, the laptop will show the message "Loading Files;" begin the factory reset process by always selecting the default option that pops up. You can also use the "F12" key to boot from the disk. Highlight the CD/DVD option and press "Enter" to begin the restore process. Follow the on-screen instructions until the process finishes
Restoring a Toshiba laptop back to factory settings may take 30 to 45 minutes. Unless you terminate a process by pressing "Cancel," your laptop will be rolled back to factory defaults, when the operating system installs completely. hope this helps
Go into the BIOS and check if the BIOS detects the hard disk. If not then most likely the hard disk has failed and the hard disk needs to be replaced then Windows needs to be installed on the new hard drive plus the Toshiba M115 device drivers and your programs/software.
You will need to run the Recovery Media Creator application provided by Toshiba with your laptop if you do not have a backup / recovery disk. The instructions for doing this are documented in the User Guide for the Toshiba Satelite L755D on the Toshiba Support web site. . .http://support1.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/userman-en-20110509152548.zip . .The User Guide is a PDF document contained in a ZIP archive.
Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive). You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it. To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:
Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen
Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended) CAUTION: Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Run check disk for hard drive errors. I recommend immediately backing up all your data that you can, wiping it, and reinstalling your programs. The rebooting problem smells like a bad hard drive. I just went through it with a Compaq at work.

ITS LOOKING FOR DISK LIKE WINCD OR RECOVERYCD
WHEN DID PROBLEM START
WHILE IN A RESTART CONTINUOSLY PRESS F7
WHEN OPTIONS APPEAR HIGHLIGHT OPTION FOR HARDDRIVE THEN PRESS ENTER
IF STILL HAPPENS LET ME KNOW
