Hi I suppose you are using Windows XP try installing an anti virus and check for cleaning the infected files , Keep the last option for restoration , because in this process you will loose all the data as the default factory setting will be in place.
At present ther is no restore disks. .If you have one then insert the disk and restrt the PC . Select Boot vai CD and follow the method which bset suit you.

Why is it crashing?


You may have a virus, a bad device driver, or windows files are corrupted, and possible hard drive issues. Run full virus scan of your system, uninstall last program when problem appeared, or do a system restore reverting computer back to a earlier time, if none of these work backup files and do a complete re-installation of windows, and finally have the hard drive checked if things are no better.

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.

Hello, I am sorting out my friends Inspiron Mini (XP) which was riddled with viruses. Having cleared the viruses the laptop crashes every time you start it. There are no CDs with it either, and the...


Have you changed the hard drive on this sytem at any time? It appears your OS is defective and may need a complete reinstall. You can reset it to factory settings by clicking on F8 at bootup and select the 'repair my computer' option. If you havent changed the HDD yet, you should see the Dell Datasafe option (last option). Select that and proceed.
If you changed the HDD, then the above option would not work. You will need to call Dell and get an OS CD to reinstall the operating system. Obviously, if you are out of warranty, you'd have to buy a new CD..
Try running a PSA diagnostic on the system to see if there is an issue with the HDD. To do this, hold down the Fn key and power on the system. Once you see the Pre-Boot Assessment screen, release the Fn key. Let the diags run - approximately 10-15 minutes, and make a note of any error messages. Errors like 0142, 0146, etc would indicate a HDD problem and would need a HDD replacement. (HDD = Hard Disk Drive)

Hi i need to restore my Toshiba A100 - TA2 Model # PSAA8C - TA202C i had a virus on it and it crashed my computer before i could get it fixed... Please email me back on how i can fix my computer myself...


Using the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In the event 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 the special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can elect to restore the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or to restore only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or to change 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 computer's HDD, follow the steps on this link:
