Remove the single screw that holds the dvd bay. It is the closest to the centre of the base and is not marked 9B. The bay can then be slid out.

Im having trouble restoreing my Toshiba Ssatellite laptop to the oringal factory image .I cant pull up the hard drive disk utillity menu can you please help me out ?


If you are unable to get into the recovery partition then most likely the hard drive is failing and needs to be replaced. You can buy new hard drives for as little as $45 online or best buy. Once you have the new drive in you would need a recovery disc set to re install the OS + software. If you do not have the recovery disc set you will need to order that from toshiba.

Unable to restore back to factory image read error


Are you using Factory CD/DVD or Made from utlity Disks or from hard drive utility option.
This seems to be a CD read error.
I found the same error code need help for posted for HP, Compaq, Gateway, ETC.
ALL new setups with the MAKE RECOVERY DISK UTILITY and NO factory disks.
Factory recovery disks are available for $60 and up from manufacturers.
Other option is Install Retail OS - get drivers from manufacturer - Install software you want to use.
Other option is expensive but reliable.
Factory option would be for your system only.

Missing recovery disk for Composer 5100


The recovery disk is usually stored as a separate partition on the hard disk itself (Mostly in cases of laptop disks), so when ever you purchase laptops with pre-installed Operating System, The very first thing you do is create a CD/DVD recovery disk ie burn the recovery partition on the CD/DVD.
so that you can use the same DVD in case the OS crashes.
In your case as your hard disk was crashed and replaced ask the people from where you purchased the laptop/pc to restore it to the new hard disk, or purchase the Operating System.

hope this clears the doubt

Optical drive cant recognise by the system


Your problem is that your system does not see the optical drive, simply because it was not programmed by the recovery manager to do so. When the plug was pulled, the loss of continuity caused that you have lost the driver for the cd/dvd drive. Now you need to erase everything and begin by installing the system and then the drivers. Don't feel bad because I have done the same mistake with my HP nx9420 laptop. The way I fixed it is that I called HP Tech. Support and asked for a System disk and a Drivers disk. If they ask you what happened to the ones that came from the seller, tell them that you never received any (which is most likely the truth). You are not cheating anyone. They have these disks by the million and they give them away free. You install the System disk first and you will have everything working. If I am not mistaken you will also have your optical drive working, if not it will work after all the drivers are installed. Please, keep in touch with me and when you have the disks, I can walk you through the process. For that I give you my e-mail <arzobconst@yahoo.com> 7862340692. The whole procedure is totally free. We thank you very much for considering our service...

Delete everything off


See the instructions below from the support website - you need the discs that came with your laptop. If you do not have them, find an OEM copy of your systems operating system and install. Be sure to download and install all driver software from the Fujitsu Website.

Restoring operating system
Using the ”Windows Recovery CD" and the ”Drivers & Utilities CD", you can restore the operating
system of your notebook.
All hard disk contents are deleted during operating system restoration. After this, operating system,
drivers and software utilities will be reinstalled. For this reason you should try to save important data
to a backup medium before you restore the hard disk contents.
► Insert the "Windows Recovery CD" into the optical drive.
► Switch the notebook on.
► Follow the instructions on the screen.
i
Detailed PC knowledge is required for manual partitioning.
You must then reinstall all the drivers. Use the "Drivers & Utilities" CD provided.
