I want to donate a toshiba satellite a55-s326 and want to restore factory settings but don't have discs.


Don't bother. Log on as the Administrator, usually you need to do ctrl-alt-del twice at the log on screen to be able to enter this account or start the machine in safe mode. Usually there is no password.
Remove your data and delete the accounts (control panel, user accounts)! Uninstall all software that you do not want to leave on the machine. Create a new account - User. The new user can change the name later.
