Okay
you want to format
the first thing before formating is:
right click my computer then properties then hardware and then devices
write down your
network driver
audio driver
and video driver
that way when the format is done if those drivers wer'nt detected they can easily be reinstalled
Are you asking how to format

How do i reset to factory settings on the toshiba satellite L25-S119


Hi bigbro1610...

To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall the operatins system and the drivers.
You will need to have the CD's that either you made when you got your computer or if your lucky you got the CD's that the factory furnished with the computer at the time you bought it.
1.
Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new. So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to reinstall the operating system along with the drivers.
That will bring your computer back to factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.

How to format my toshiba laptop


Hi mikey mcinto...Are you sure you want to format the hard drive and lose everything...
I hope you have all your files backed up because you are going to lose everything.
Why not try to "Restore" your laptop to an earlier time when it was working properly...
Try this Left click on "Start">All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> Restore
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you still want to format your hard drive then you will go to "My Computer and double left click on it, then you will go to C: drive or whatever drive letter is your main drive and right click on it and a drop down window will appear..it will list Format...click on it and follow the instructions on the screen.

Hi! I've got a Toshiba Satellite L300 and it won't boot anymore. I get past the initial toshiba-screen where I can press F2 and F12 but afterwards there's just a black screen with a little...


You can retrieve your data by removing the hard drive and connecting it to an USB hard drive adapter then plug it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders and files to back up your data.
You can then return the hard drive back into the Toshiba then format the hard drive and reinstall Windows to get your Toshiba working again.
You can download thedevice drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from theirdownload page. Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get thecorrect drivers.

My hard drive is unable to open and format


You will probably need to remove the drive and use another computer to format it. You can buy an adapter to connect it to another pc as a USB drive and format it this way. They are not very expensive. Hope this helps.

How to reformat my laptop,toshiba satellite u 300.thansk


with what operating system?

There are two ways...

(1) take the hard drive out and connect it to another computer, right click on the drive, and click format

(2) You need a windows or other operating system disk....just start it like you were going to install windows, and select advanced disk options (it's a link, easy to overlook but it's always there)

You can not format a disk with a running operating system on it.

There are other "bootable" disks you can also format the hard drive with...an Acronis Backup boot disk, probably a Norton Ghost boot disk....things like that...not all bootable CDs, but usually a backup or disk imaging program will allow you to format a hard drive

Unable to format, partition,ins. os and boot my toshiba TE2100..


The CMOS needs to be set to first read the CD or DVD drive before it reads the Hard drive. Once your XP disk is in the drive it will boot from the CD drive and setup the computer, The CMOS is acessed by turning on the computer and immediatly pressing either the deleat key or the F! or F2 key try each one till you get to CMOS then look for boot section. Set CD drive to first your HD drive to second.

It is possible to remove the domain login and networking setup, but you need to remove programs and cleanup/remove some registry items.
The best way to fix your problem is to wipe the hard disk and install Windows again. The Windows licence label is on the bottom of the laptop, use this product code to install Windows, you can borrow a Windows CD to do the install. Don't forget to download the device drivers from the Toshiba WEB site before you format your hard disk. You need to install your programs again as well.
If this is too hard then the easiest option is to put up with the login problem.

Hard drive


You need to use a Windows install disk, or the computer recovery disk.

At startup of new windows installation, chose new installation and then chose the option Format hard drive.

Note: the windows install disk must be bootable, Upgrade install disk (non bootable) does not have the format option.

I need to replace my hard disk notebook with a bigger capacity hdd


Toshiba is rather secretive with their documentation. It is hard to find. Google TOSHIBA SATELLITE A10 SERVICE MANUAL and check the available offerings.

You now have a 5400 RPM, ATA 100 drive. You should not have any drive size restrictions. Shops are advertising many large drives as compatible.

I suggest that you purchase only a 7200 RPM drive. The faster speed will perk your machine right up.

I have not worked on Toshiba machines but suggest you have all restore disks and passwords at hand.
