Question about Computers & Internet
You can save your data like ms files, pictures, videos, etc (except the programs to a removable disc, usb flash drive, external hard drive and any other storing devices before doing the complete factory settings reset.
For the programs, you can just reinstall them by using the installation discs.

Only way to do this would be to do a "system restore" without disks you can only hope you have restore points setup... run system restore from control panel and find out..
if no restore points contact dell for a restore disk.. remember the system restore without disks will not remove viruses or other harmful files..

Only way is to reinstall Windows from scratch; download the required drivers from Toshiba support webpage for your laptop; burn these onto a CD and load them after Windows has completed installing. Sorry! You could try Toshiba for the recovery CD download as well...

SOURCE: Hi, My sony Vaio VPCEA21FX, says
There are numerous ways tom recover your data .Depending on how much data you have to recover -If you have acess to another computer that you can down load and burn a cd on here is one way that works most times for me -it will take a while to set up though--First go to this web site and down load the latest Ubuntu CD -ISO image ( http://www.ubuntu.com/ ) burn the image to a disc-- or follow instructions on ubuntu to make a bootable USB stick ---Using this operating system running from cdrom or usb stick we can access the hard drive with out writing any thing to it so we don't corrupt any more data .
Make sure you have another hard drive you can connect to your computer or another dvd drive you can burn to or if you dont have much data to recover then just use usb sticks.
Once you have the bootable cd or usb stick set your bois or boot sequance to boot from cd rom or other bootable device once ubuntu loads it will ask to try first or install--- click on try first --this will load the operating system to your ram and take you to a desktop-- once the ubuntu desktop loads look up the top of the screen and look for" places" click on it and a drop down menu appears look for your hard drive it should be listed here click on it and it should mount to desk top click and select open to brows your files -- the folders and files will look a little diferant but all your file names will be there . now just select the files and folders you need and right clcik then send to your usb stick or other hard drive or other dvd burner (make sure these are plugged in while starting the ubuntu disc so ubuntu can see them and install drivers for them.) once you have copied al your files you can then clcik on the shut down icon ubuntu will proceed to shut down then promt you to remove the disc and hit enter it will shut down and also be removed from your computer --do your restore then copy your files over like you normally would do -- and if you like you can also install Ubunto after wards and have a duel boot system( to impress your mates) with windows and Ubunto on it if you like . I hope this helps
