U want to reinstal the OP right?
Well, whitout a windows disc you cant, you hav to buy a new OP.
Drivers for you laptop you will find on toshibas site.

But before you do that, mail Toshiba and tell them that you lost your discs, sometime they help, mostly they dont if it is an old laptop.

I have a toshiba satellite L645D how can I format it to the factory settings like it just came out of the box.


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. Thanks.

You need to make a bootable CD, put theToshiba DMI utility on the bootable CD; Boot from that CD, then run DMI utility to set the machine to match the designation on your recovery disks. That'll do it.

Distorted, scratchy sound with Toshiba Satellite


OK, I would restore or recover the computer to manufacturer's original specifications and automatic update to the latest sp3.

Then, I would reinstall your virus protection and see if it's better.

Is there a destructive recovery option on toshiba satellite a105, i have no recovery cd


I'm not really sure what you are asking. If you see an option on startup that says something like press f11 or something for system recovery, then you can recover from the recovery partition--assuming there is one.
You can probably order a recovery CD or DVD from Toshiba, also.

Toshiba Satellite A105 s4254 Wont Boot Recovery Disk


You most likely have a bad hard drive. I would replace the hard drive and run a recover disk to put your laptop back to it factory condition. if you don't have a recovery disk you can get one at one of the sites below.

I'm need to replace the hard drive without having a system disk.


Google "TOSHIBA RECOVERY AND APPLICATIONS/DRIVERS SATELLITE A100/A105 SERIES" to find the cd delivered with a TOSHIBA. the fourth entry shows what appears to be the real thing. On their webpage EDIT>FIND "A15" to locate the CD.

There may be others in the 355 Google pages listed.

On the original factory disk gives a TOSHIBA Phone number, 1-800-457-7777, for support. I think they sell the disk for @$40.

good luck.

Recovery Disk can not recover system


It could be a hard drive crash. Can you refort the hard drive and see if you get any errors.

Check to see if you have any scratched on the CD.
