To restore to original program or setting

I have a toshiba satellite L100 laptop. At one point it had a blue screen. The technician said that it should be reformatted and so he does it. All my files were lost after he did it.. i am not convenient with the re-programming he did so i want the original setting restored. All i have is the product recovery dvd-rom with me. What should i do to solve my problem. Thanks a lot.

Hi there.
To restore the operating system and the preinstalled software back to factory defaults do this >>>>>
Put the restore DVD in the drive and turn off the machine, wait 10 - 15 seconds and and turn the computer on.
When the "In Touch with Tomorrow TOSHIBA" logo appears, press the F12 key.
Use the cursor key to select the CD/DVD icon in the menu and hit the enter key, then just follow the on screen instructions.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

    I have a toshiba satellite L645D how can I format it to the factory settings like it just came out of the box.


    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.

    I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

    Cannot start my start laptop its as soon as I put the password blue screen appears crash dump cannot start


    Would be nice to know error code on the blue screen.That is pointing on the problem-and solution.Anyway, you can try system restore.On boot,computer shows start-up options, and among them is "System Restore".Hit that button and try to restore OS in earlier point of time.Or try Safe mode.Run-msconfig-enter-system restore.To be honest, from my bad experience, blue screen on boot is almost always connected to dying hard drive. Good luck,and keep us posted.

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

    • 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.
    The hard disk drive restore utility is saved on a separate partition on the Toshiba laptop's hard drive. If that partition has been formatted you won't be able to use the restore utility. If you don't have the operating system recovery disc and the partition has been formatted, you will need to contact Toshiba's customer support to have them send you a new disc.

    All of your existing data will be permanently removed from the hard drive when the factory restore process has finished running.

    TOSHIBA SATELLITE LAPTOP a300d-14O TURNS ITSELF ON AGAIN AFTER SHUT DOWN WHEN LID IS CLOSED


    Your power management in Windows is corrupted. I would do a system restore to an earlier date.
    1.
    Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
    2.
    On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
    3.
    On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.
    sysrest2.jpg
    Figure 2
    4.
    On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
    5.
    Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
    6.
    The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe
