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.

The best option is get a restore disc from Toshiba, I've done this a few times and it is a very easy process. Once you have the disc just boot the laptop with disc inserted and away you go!!.

I am looking to reformat the hard drive (ie restore to factory settings) of a toshiba equium a60 laptop. However, I have no manufacturer disks so wondering if it is possible?

I've had a look at the the Toshiba website:-

It gives the impression that this is quite an old system. That being the case, re-installing windows requires re-formatting the HDD.

But keep the URL above handy, it may help with drivers you may need after the re-installationt.

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

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

I need to know how to reboot this toshiba laptop and do not know how to

First, try windows diagnostic. Depress F8 button before the pc boots to windows and select Restore to best known...If nothing happens, try booting to Safe Mode. If it works ok in that mode then you need to reformat your drive. Make sure you use the Restore cd otherwise some or all the features like sound, VGA, etc will not work. When the Restore disk is through, it will prompt for the OS. Simply insert it into the drive's tray and follow the instruction on the screen. Good luck

I have a Toshiba M70 laptop. I want to revert to the factory settings and re-install Window XP. The Product recovery DVD ROM does not run any program but just has a large file that Windows does not...

you should be able to boot to that disk and begin the reinstall process. just put the disk in, reboot, and watch the boot process to give you a prompt similar to "press any key to boot from CD..."
That should start you install.
