Tips for a great answer:
Hello, here are the steps to resetting your computer.
Reinstall Windows from a Disk
1 Turn on your Toshiba Satellite. Insert your
recovery disk or the original Windows operating system DVD
into the Satellite's
CD/DVD drive. Turn off the computer.
2 Turn on the Toshiba Satellite. In the first
few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F12 key on your
keyboard to access the Boot Menu. (Note: Some Toshiba models may tell you to
press "C" to boot
from the CD-ROM). The screen will display boot for
this boot up session only.
3 Use the arrow keys to navigate. Select the
CD-ROM/DVD drive to highlight it. Press "Enter." Be aware that this
setting is for this session only; it is not a permanent change.
4 Allow the computer to start up. Follow the onscreen
instructions for reinstalling the operating system from the disk.
Reinstall from a Recovery Partition
1 Boot up the Toshiba Satellite. In the first
few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F8 key. This will begin
the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
2 Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate
the menu. Move the keys to select "Repair Your Computer." Press
3 Select your language and keyboard; click
4 Select your Windows user name from the
drop-down menu. Enter your password if required. Click "OK." This
will begin the "System Recovery Options" menu.
5 Select the Toshiba Recovery Wizard and follow
the onscreen instructions. The Toshiba Recovery Wizard will delete all existing
data on the hard drive and reinstall Windows.
Hope this helps!
