Sounds like you might have a missing boot manager; but without a restore disc, there is no easy way to fix this. I would download Ubuntu, a live OS, burn to a CD, insert it into the laptop, and boot into it. Then, you should be able to recover your files by dragging them to an external drive. If there are no files; its also possible the drive failed, and the data is lost.
Either way, ensure that there is currently no CD or external harddrive connect while booting, which can sometimes cause those symptoms.

I want to restore my factory settings

Do you have the restore discs? If not order them or go to Toshiba site and order them or download them if that is the option they provide for you. Also if you have the restore disc then just insert the restore disc and follow the on screen directions.
Make sure that the boot order is set to DVD or CD as the first boot and hard disk as the second boot this should be already set in the BIOS. Order the discs if you do not have them imperative. Thanks for using FixYa!
P.S. If you cannot get a restore disk from Toshiba I use this site for all restore discs. Note you have a PayPal account it is free to get at I use PayPal because I know it is a legit site. Click Here

My daughters computer is a dell latitude D610 notebook running Windows XP.....when powering up XP starts to load and then goes to a blank blue screen....Is there a restore disc or something i can download...

Hi. I provided you a link where to download the restore disk. Once you have downloaded the restore disk, here's the instruction on how to use the disk.


  • Backup all the data you want to keep on an external hard drive, flash drive, or rewritable CD. Resetting your Dell to factory defaults will erase all data currently on your computer.

  • 2

    Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.

  • 3

    Reboot your computer.

  • 4

    Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.

  • 5

    Choose System Restore and then follow the instructions presented. Once system recovery beings, it may take a few minutes. Once it's done, your system will reboot again.

  • 6

    Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.

    Acer 5535 how to restore back to factory settings


    Thank you for your query

    Restoring a laptop back to its factory settings can be done in one of 2 ways

    1) Some manufacturers provide the recovery CD/DVD, simply put this disc in and restart the PC, the DVD/CD should boot and then you can follow the onscreen instructions

    2) Some manufacturers provide hard drive based recovery, this mean rather than provide a CD/DVD,manufactueres put the recovery on a section of the hard drive. To use this method you click on start>Programs then find the name of the manufacturers folder. In this folder there will be a programme titled system recovery, factory settings. Click on this and follow through on the instructions

    I have an old Presario 1700 running windows 2000 professional. It hasn't been used in at least 3 yrs. My daughter loaded a password, and now can't remember it. We don't have the restore disc anymore...

    If you can not remember the windows password, the the only way to get into the the system is to reinstall windows 2000, you may find a retail versions at a software of computer store, or even a copy from a friend that no longer uses this version, The setup program ask you 1. if you want to do fresh install or just 2. restore system files saving you current configuration files and keeping the system intact choose this the latter option and all files on the system will still be there but windows files will be freshed allowing you to choose a new passord .

    I want to restore factory settings on my laptop

    You could try a system restore to the day before the changes, go to accesories,system tools, system restore. The programmes should be there again but may not work correctly it's a fingers crossed job. The only other way to restore is if you have a restore partition on your hardrive or a restore disc, but normally there would be a programme built in to restore the notebook to factory settings.
