In need of restoring to factory settings, (Toshiba Satellite M45). Held down zero, powered on, no beeps occur. The recovery utility never appears. Not listed in All Programs for Hard Disk Utility nor in...

It appears the recovery partition has been removed from your hard disk. You need to obtain a Recovery CD from Toshiba.
If you have a Windows XP Home installation CD then you can use it to reinstall Windows on your Toshiba and the product installation code will be on the Windows label on the bottom of your laptop.

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. Please click on this link: -

I use toshiba satellite A305-S6872 laptop would not load OS

you will most likely have to go into the recovery console to fix the problem or even re-install.

The other two solutions are to either boot up in safe mode to correct the problem by trying to revert back to a saved well working time, or take out pci cards and reboot always taking out another pci card until you find the problem.

if nothing works, re-install or fix in recovery console. <<< or >>>

BEST Solution
at re-install, choose repair windows.
