How can i go in boot option


Normally when you power on your Toshiba Satellite laptop it attempts to boot the operating system installed on its hard drive.
In some instances you may want to boot the Satellite laptop from a different device, such as an operating system installation CD or a USB drive.
The boot order doesn't have to permanently be set to the hard drive.
It's possible to access the boot order before the operating system loads and change which device is set to boot first.

Turn off the Toshiba Satellite laptop.
Turn it back on immediately and wait for the "press the F2 key to enter Setup" entry to show up on the screen.
Press the "F2" key to access the Toshiba Satellite's BIOS menu.
Use the right arrow key to navigate to the BIOS tab labeled "Boot."

Scroll down to the option labeled "Boot Priority" and tap Enter.
Check through the list of devices and locate the specific device you want to use to Boot your Toshiba laptop, such as "CD-ROM," "USB" or "LAN."

Highlight the name of the device in the list and then tap Enter to make it the top boot priority.
Use the right arrow key again to scroll over to the "Exit" BIOS menu.

Tap the down arrow key to highlight the "Save and Exit" option.
Press Enter to save the new boot order and restart your Toshiba Satellite laptop.

Repeat the procedure when you want to change the boot order back to its original setting.

I need to reset my laptop


Hello, here are the steps to resetting your computer.



Reinstall Windows from a Disk



1 Turn on your Toshiba Satellite. Insert your recovery disk or the original Windows operating system DVD

into the Satellite's CD/DVD drive. Turn off the computer.



2 Turn on the Toshiba Satellite. In the first few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F12 key on your keyboard to access the Boot Menu. (Note: Some Toshiba models may tell you to press "C" to boot

from the CD-ROM). The screen will display boot for this boot up session only.



3 Use the arrow keys to navigate. Select the CD-ROM/DVD drive to highlight it. Press "Enter." Be aware that this setting is for this session only; it is not a permanent change.



4 Allow the computer to start up. Follow the onscreen instructions for reinstalling the operating system from the disk.



Reinstall from a Recovery Partition



1 Boot up the Toshiba Satellite. In the first few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F8 key. This will begin the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.



2 Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate the menu. Move the keys to select "Repair Your Computer." Press "Enter."



3 Select your language and keyboard; click "Next."



4 Select your Windows user name from the drop-down menu. Enter your password if required. Click "OK." This will begin the "System Recovery Options" menu.



5 Select the Toshiba Recovery Wizard and follow the onscreen instructions. The Toshiba Recovery Wizard will delete all existing data on the hard drive and reinstall Windows.



Hope this helps!

How can I force a cd boot on a toshiba satellte A135-S4477


You need to hit the function key on reboot that takes you to the BIOS settings. In the BIOS settings there will be an option to change the boot order. Make sure the CD is the first device to boot from. If the machine fails to boot from CD after this, then either the CD-ROM in the device is not a bootable CD ... or the drive may have issues.

Cheers!

Toshiba satellite 1805 s204 "media test failure, check cable"....


Did you install the windows system etc? If not boot from the system restore cd and it should work. If it will not boot from the cd-rom then more damage was done then was apparent and the unit would require factory qualified repair. Be sure of the cost before committing to repair since on laptops sometimes it is cheaper to replace the repair. Good Luck

I would like to reset my computer to the day I bought it.


OK, you need to locate to system CDs that came with your laptop. One of them will be disc 1 or operating system or Windows CD. Insert into the CD ROM drive. Power up laptop and when "Press any key to boot CD.." is displayed, press any key on the keyboard. If this message doesn't display, then the CD will boot and just follow the on-screen messages to install your OS. If your laptop doesn't boot the CD, then you need to go into your BIOS and set the CD-ROM drive as the 1st boot device. Follow on-screen messages during boot-up to enter your BIOS or try pressing the DEL or F1 or F2 or F12 key while powering up your computer. If you do not have the system CDs, then you need to call Toshiba and order them.
