    I have a toshiba L305-s5984 and it will not boot until i press the page-up or page-down key then it will give me a video screen. the machine apears to have power but nothing on screen. only a black...

    not sure if this will help you ...
    How to Restore a Toshiba L305The Toshiba Satellite L305 notebook computer has a recovery program pre-installed at the factory that lets users return the hard drive to its out-of-box state. Using the recovery feature completely deletes all software and options saved on the laptop, which resolves any boot up problems and removes any virus infections. The recovery option isn't accessible directly through the operating system however, and must be accessed by starting up the computer in a different way than normal. Step 1 Close out any software currently running on your Toshiba Satellite L305 laptop. Navigate to the laptop's "Start" menu and choose "Shut Down."
    Step 2 Hold down the laptop's "0" key and press the power button. Keep the key held down during the boot up process until the "Toshiba Recovery Wizard" window loads on the screen.
    Step 3 Click the check box labeled "Recovery of Factory Default Software." Choose the "Next" option.
    Step 4 Choose the "Recover to out-of-box state" radio button. Select the "Next" button and click "Next" again. Wait for the "Press any key" prompt to appear and tap a key to restart the laptop.
    Step 5 Use the prompts that appear on the screen to choose your region, time zone and keyboard settings. Type your new Windows user name and password in the text boxes when prompted. Click "Finish" to load the new operating system....

    How do you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7

    Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
    If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
    Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
    In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
    You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
    To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
    1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
    2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:
    Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen

    Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
    Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
    1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
    2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
    3. Press any key to restart the computer.
    * The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
    Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
    You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

    Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
    restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

    Installing Drivers and Applications
    The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
    To reinstall drivers and applications:
    1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.


    2. Click "Next".
    3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
    4. Click "Install".
    5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

    Hope this helps.

    Computer screen wont turn on


    It appears the windows installation is corrupt or the hard drive has a problem. I would suggest to reinstall from the windows installation cd or from the restore cd. If you don't have these I suggest you take the computer to a repair person who can get it working for you.

    Problem restarting, "press r"

    1. Start the laptop
    2. when the logo screen turns black start pressing F8 a few times.
    3. A Windows Boot Options screen should show on the screen
    4. If you see the Windows Logo (the normal thing when Windows loads, then press reset and try again
    5. At the Windows Boot Options screen select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter twice
    It "should" now load normally, if not then..
    1. Replace step 5 above with "Safe Mode" and see if that loads all the way through. If so, then restart and see if its OK now.
    If not, then post back with any error messages and we can look at something else.
