You can use any windows XP cd and boot from that to run a repair. You don't need the Restore Cds unless the problem can't be fixed by the XP cd. You could also try booting into safe mode if you can't find a cd. Let me know if you need more help.

Problems restoring my Toshiba L305 to factory settings


I'd doubt that the hard drive is bad. Most times the Factory Recover does not work especially from the discs.

Why not try reinstalling Windows, because you've probably wiped out your operating system by trying the recoveries. Look on the bottom of your laptop or inside the battery case for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) Sticker. It will tell you what verion of Windows you have and it will have your registered Product Key Code (series of 5 letters and numbers). If you don't have an operating system disk, then borrow one from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. It has to be the same operating system that is on your COA sticker or it will not work and you won't be able to activate windows. If your COA says Windows Vista Home Premium, you can't use a Windows Vista Home Basic operating system disc.

Sometimes activation can be tricky so when you come to the part where it asks for the Product Key give it the key from the COA Sticker on the bottom of your laptop. Sometimes it will not want yours but want the key that came with the software you borrowed so if it is not on the packaging ask the person your borrowed from to give you the Product Key from their COA Sticker. Don't worry, theirs is theirs and yours is yours.

Cant restore to factory settings tried 0,f1 and f8 none work


When your Toshiba Satellite laptop goes on the fritz, there are several instances where the best solution is to delete everything and start over. If your system frequently crashes or you can't remove a specific virus, you may want to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. While the easiest way to restore the system is to use the operating system restore disc, it is possible to restore the system without it. Each Satellite laptop also includes a hard drive recovery utility that lets you restore the operating system without the restore disc.

1. Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

2. Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.

3. Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."

4. Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.

5. Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.

6. Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

Hi my laptop had sound before and now it doesnt i need help putting it back on its a toshiba satellite L25 and it runs on windows XP i had to restart everything my wireless internet was gone and my sound...


go to control panel. using classic view, choose sound and audio device. from the dialog check whether the system speaker it in mute state. If its not in mute state. There is another option, u restore ur system back . click start, run, type restore in the space, enter, double click on the restore icon, it wil open the restoring points you have on your system. choose the date that u know that all the drivers are working well, then ok. Your system will restart. Thats all very simple.

Turns on but does not load


i would like to give passive explanation for this actually first thing you may do is enter bios and restore defaults and change the boot priority to HDD--CD---FLOPPY then save settings and exit to restart >if the problem persists at system start up keep tapping F8 till you get option like safe mde and other and press enter for safe mode with networking now when desktop comes it gives you recovery pop up click on ok and no follow this Right-click My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery Settings > Uncheck "automatically restart" in the System Failure section. now considering the opposite side if system does not comes to this it means HAL.DLL or any other system file is missing so you would be required to reinstall os or use recovery disk..........now reason for this can be virus or trojan that deletes system file and cause crash

How do I reset my computer to the factory settings???


First restart your Toshiba laptop. Press either "F1," "0," or "F8" to be taken to your computer's hard drive utility screen. The key command differs depending on the model Toshiba computer that you own.

Select "Restore Original Factory Image" from the list of options in System Recovery. Verify that you want to continue the process by clicking "Yes," then click "Next".

Restart the Toshiba laptop once the factory restore process has been completed. You will be prompted to enter information such as the date, time and language preferences.

What have you gone through in the setup option? Have you tried the safe mode?

Go into safe mode and restore your system settings. Go to the Start menu, All Programs, Accessories, and System Tools, then System Restore. go through the wizard and pick a point in time before your computer crashed.

If you have any other problems, let me know.

Factory restore


On a laptop there is no factory setting reset option (unless you mean bios reset ). To get the laptop back to the initial 'as new' condition you need to re-install the system using the recovery disk on startup. Put recovery cd 1 inside laptop cd drive and restart the computer. Follow instructions for complete restore.
If you do complete restore you can lose all your data.
