How do I access Toshiba Satellite A10 product recovery discs

My cd/dvd drive is faulty and I do not want to invest in an external drive as I may need to replace the unit. I have the 3 recovery discs. Do the recovery discs also contain a windows operating system?

I need to reboot windows xp on my toshiba satellite laptop


The Toshiba Satellite A10-S169 includes several utilities to improve the performance or security of the computer, and to reconfigure the system's settings. Toshiba Satellites running Windows Vista 32-bit and Windows XP come with the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility, which allows you to create a recovery CD of your system and applications. The recovery CD will allow you to restore your system and its settings in case your hard drive fails.

Click "Start." Click "All Programs." Expand "Hard Disk Recovery Utilities." Click "Recovery Disc Creator." Select "CD" as the type. Check "Recovery and Applications." Insert a CD into the disc drive. Click "Burn." The Toshiba A10-S169 will begin writing the recovery content to the CD. Follow the on-screen prompts to burn your recovery files to disc. Hope this helps.

Installed new hard drive p105 s6064 now cd drive wont work dont have recovery discs


Dell recovery will not work in a Toshiba Laptop. Just make sure the boot order is set to CD/DVD driver first that will automatically start the CD/DVD driver when disc is loaded.

Hello.. I need some help. I am using toshiba satellite a1O system unit..my laptop was fyn till nw..all of a sudden windows doesnt load..when i turn the power on, the toshiba logo is shown..then black...


Hello
First thing you do is to see what hard disc installed in your laptop. You can check that by checking it in your bios system. To check in your bios system first turn off your computer then press delete while your laptop is booting up. Then you will see if there is a hard disk detected in your lap top if there is a detected hard drive this means you have a problem in your windows installed in your lap top.
There is also a reason why those message appear if the first boot of your laptop is the CD/DVD ROM. Check you CD/DVD ROM if there a CD inside this may the first on to read while the laptop booting up. Remove the cd inside your CD/DVD ROM. Then restart your laptop. Check your hard disk connector it may have some loose contact thats why your laptop did not recognize the hard disc.
Hope this can help keep on touch with fixya. Hope to hear some testimonial from you. . .

What do I need to back up My toshiba satellite L455. Computers don't come with cd's or disks any more with purchase?


Since you have Win 7 Home Premium, start with making a System Repair disc. You just need a blank CD-R or DVD+/-R (DL is OK, but not an R/W disc). Click Start > Maintenance > Create a System Repair Disc. (This will save you from needing a OS install disc in the future)

Next you can use the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator to create a set of backup discs for the initial configuration of the computer. (Use DVDs for this to avoid needing lots of discs.) This lets you make one copy of the Media - no chance to update for new drivers or any other information.

You can save your files with the Backup and Restore (in the same Maintenance files as the System Repair disc). With Home Premium this only works with an locally attached external hard drive.

If you need a complete backup after this, you will need third party software. Some external drives come with the software. Norton Ghost, Paragon Backup and Recovery, and Acronis True Image will all do a full backup to CD, DVD or external drive; there are others.Most of these will make incremental updates as well. There are a few free packages but those don't have the features of the above (like recovering just one file if needed).

I hope this helps.

The display screen does not sit any viewing angle.


More than likely both hinges are broken (the screen pivots to the hinges). Nothing to do but to replace both L and R hinges.

Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator isn't working


hello lazerr_man,

Try to use another freeware burnprogram like burnatonce to create an
other CD, just to check if the Combo-drive is writing properly.

If you don't get any error messages like the ones from Toshiba program, then the problem is the toshiba software.

If other burn programs find difficulties in accessing CDs or DVD-Rs
then the drive itself giving you a hard time and might seek for replacement.

You may find the toshiba exchange parts too expensive and the internal drive is still reading disks properly, then think about an external dvd-rw drive, but make sure to buy a highspeed USB one (or even firewire, if the laptop has the port), else it will run rather slowly.

good luck

Wish to make a recovery disk


Toshiba usually ships laptops with recovery cd/dvd sets.
If you have captioned recovery set, make sure to make a backup copy.
If this series no has recovery cd/dvd, must be a hidden partition for recovery in the hard drive. For make a recovery disc find the sotware loaded in the laptop (must be there) and make a recovery disc set. Be aware that some manufacturers limit the use of this particular software (you only can make one cd/dvd recovery set).
In the worst scenario that the recovery partition is no present you must load Norton Ghost v14.0 and make a full backup to one external hard drive (USB) in order to recover te operative system, drivers and software in case of disaster.

I hope this help you to solve the problem.

CD RW/ DVD RW Drive Will not read and Burned discs or burn to blank discs


I suggest a firmware update from Toshiba. If this does not help then your laser in the drive is no longer capable of this task. Also just thought about it but make sure the media that you are burning to is the same as the drive + or - R's
