Click on the "start menu" then click on "computer", right click your "local disk" drive. You then have the choice to either (Format) the drive which will wipe everything including the operating system. Or click "Restore Previous Versions".

Hope this helps

Do you have a System restore/recovery partition? Reboot start tapping F-11, I think, enter restore/recovery, do a system recovery to factory settings. OR in your Start menu, All Programs, Assessories, System Tools, System Restore. take a look at this info :

Hi, welcome to Fixya.
You can follow the steps to get the computer back to factory restore however i would like to update you with the factory restore as you run the FR it will remove all your personal stored data, files, pictures etc from the harddrive.The computer will be like the first day you bought.

Factory settings without needing recovery disc...
1) Turn on the computer
2) Press and Hold F11 to start the recovery process

Let me know if you have any questions

"primary master hard disk error" "press (f4) to run set up" I dont have a restore disk, I am running windows xp. thanks

Hi there,
Before you get started on the restore disk, switch off the PC first and open up the CPU to make sure everything is well connected inside. If needed, unplug and plug the wires back in. See if it works when you start back on the PC. If it doesn't then go for the recovery disk.
Here's the link where you can find the restore disk to download. Hope this helps.

My satellite a505 laptop has windows 7 on it and was wondering if i was supposed to get a disk with it so i could reinstall it

Uusally, now a days you do not get a disk with a new computer. Instead, if you go into the toshiba folder under programs on the start menu they will have a utility to make recovery disks. These disks can then be used to completely redo your computer should you need to.

Hope this helps.

Operating System Installation

If you dont have the USB external CDROM then best thing to do would be to install using another laptop. Make sure you install the chipset and video card drivers.
