Pres F8 just before it tries to boot. If the recovery partition is still there you will be invited to recover. If not download your OS and install a fresh copy.

Reset factory settings for toshiba S241-504


Back up all of you data to an external drive before you begin the process
If you make a mistake during the process, your laptop may not be able to turn on or load the
operating system, so copy valuable information to media where you can retrieve it, even if your laptop malfunctions.

Turn on your system and wait for it to finish loading Windows and start-up programs.
You can tell when the operating system has loaded, and start-up programs have been initiated, by the HDD (hard disk drive) light.
It should have came with discs. Put one in and reboot the laptop
Insert the system disk when the hard disk light stops blinking, signaling that the processor has finished accessing the hard disk, and that the system is idle. Shut down your laptop after you insert the disc.
You do not have to wait for the computer to access data from the disc.

Turn on the laptop again. Keep pressing the "C" key continuously as the system boots. This will enable the laptop to boot from the disk. Once the disk is accessed, the laptop will show

the message "Loading Files;" begin the factory reset process by always selecting the default option that pops up.

You can also use the "F12" key to boot from the disk.
Highlight the CD/DVD option and press "Enter" to begin the restore process.

Follow the on-screen instructions until the process finishes

Restoring a Toshiba laptop back to factory settings may take 30 to 45 minutes.

Unless you terminate a process by pressing "Cancel," your laptop will be rolled back to factory defaults, when the operating system installs completely.

hope this helps

Having problems rebooting from recovery disk


Hi,

The laptop should have a hidden recovery partition on it to return it back to factory settings.
Make sure the laptop is switched off and then 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.

If there is no recovery partition then to get it to boot from the CD/DVD drive repeatedly press the F12 key as you start the laptop up.


If you need anymore help please post back.



Regards.

How can I reboot my Toshiba Equium A200-1V0 and start it as new.


Hi,
If you are mentioning about 'formating' your laptop, then you can do it with either a bootable OS disk or the recovery CD that comes with your laptop.
NB: Formating the disk will lose all the data in the drive. So take necessary backup before you proceed.
Boot your laptop with the CD inserted. Make sure CD ROM is listed first in the boot option menu in BIOS. Boot from the CD and format and start installing the OS again.
Please come back and rate my solution if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification. Thnx

Hello, Bob.

Use the Recovery CDs that came with the system. If you no longer have them, order them through Toshiba. Here's their website:

I have a toshiba pd205 that i need to restore to factory settings and can't find any information in my toshiba books. I am not sure if i received disks with this or not


with toshiba, they used to have a partition (i think it was M ) where all the recovery can happen. you can trigger the recovery when the first boot the system and still in black screen , watch closely, itmight ask you to puch F10 or F11, for that option. once you reboot it u know what am talking about.

If you have the recovery CD, then put that in the drive, reboot the laptop and make sure you boot to the CD. The recovery process will start up and you can restore the laptop to it's factory settings. Make sure you have all of your documents, music, etc. backed up.
