just boot from your backup disk. it will guide you to reload the Operating system (factory default).
FYI, if you haven't delete the recovery partition, you can use alt+f10 to reload. just press alt+f10 during boot.

SOURCE: i need to factory restore
The best step forward , would be to call Packard Bell Tech support and get your CDs for the same. There is no reset feature on the computer.

Since Toshiba doesn't sells or replaces them the best solutions for you are:
1 - get an Windows XP install disk of the same type as the one on your pc and install with it while using your key - in this case you will gonna find and install all the drivers yourself
2 - just borrow from someone an recovery disk for your laptop; even one for a similar laptop will do, as long it's an Toshiba Satellite A series - some drivers will be missing, install them yourself.

When the system first starts, the following message will be shown on a blank screen:
To start the recovery program, press F11
This message will stay on the screen for about 2 seconds, this will be there every time you start it when it's powered off. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system should enter the service partition.
Keep trying it because sometimes when the computer comes on you have to do it at the correct time until it catches. I've had that problem and I kept doing it over and over again. It also could mean that your recovery partition is not there. Have you had your system reinstalled before by not using the recovery or the disk? If so your whole hard drive could have been formatted so there won't be a partition to go to when pressing f11.
If that fails then a repalcement hard drive and a cd with the image on it can be obtained by going here

This Computer has Recovery Partition hidden in the Hard Drive. You can access the Recovery Partition using the VAIO Recovery Wizard or pressing the F10 Key while restarting the Computer.
The System Recovery will restore the Computer back to the factory defaults and all the data in the Computer will be lost.
Thanks for using Fixya.
