Reset factory settings for toshiba S241-504


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

How to fix error loading operating system on toshiba satelite m115 laptop


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.

Dvd backup of os


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.

What you should do is in the following order:
1.Go into bios and load defaults (usually hit F1)
2.Go into bios and set the boot sequence as HDD number 1
3.Go into bios and disable network PXE boot if possible.
4.Now retry
5.No success press F12 and choose HDD as boot up
6.Now retry
7.No success then remove the HDD clean the contacts and reseat
8.Now retry
9.No success open the laptop lid locate which part of the laptop the hdd is located and just give the laptop a tap in that corner and abit of a push (with the laptop turned OFF) Ive successfully fixed 2 of my IBM's doing this.
10.Still no success try changing the HDD and reformating a fresh
11.Still no success i would open the laptop up completely remove the motherboard and oven bake your motherboard and 375f for 10 minutes BUT BE WARNED DO A GOOGLE SEARCH BEFORE DOING THIS!. This method can also repair other faults such as GPU faults, Memory faults..ect.

Hi,toshiba satelite pro L20 beeps when start up


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.

Need to know If I can use this hard drive in this laptop?


More than likley its not inserted all the way. See if it shows on the boot menu in BIOS. To get to BIOS in TOSHIBA units I believe its F2 at startup.
