Toshiba laptop l305d won't reboot to factory default
I know i am supposed to hold the 0 key and turn on the computer, but when i do that it just makes a loud beeping sound so i let go, and it just starts up the computer regularly instead of letting me reboot to factory default...are there any other ways i can do this?
Re: toshiba laptop l305d won't reboot to factory default
I never heard of holding the 0 key, but have you tried hitting F10 or F12? Normally when you first boot the computer you will see down in the bottom of the screen or on the top corner to press a certain key for system recovery and a certain key for entering setup, etc. It will probably be one of the function keys like F10 or F12, but I believe I have used F2 on a few. Easiest way is to check what your computer says when you first boot it.

if you still have your display with this beep sound it must be your key board is damaged. because when you turn on the laptop in your key board have a button is automatically holded. so just remove the key board and clean with a experienced person.thank you.
You can try by going to help by the start buttton and searching on restore/recovery and doing so. Or you can go to start, control panel and looking to see if there is a restore\recovery icon. Lastly you would have to reinstall your operating system by putting in the cd and rebooting after pressing F2 and selecting boot from CD. This WILL cause all user data to be lost so if you need it, it must be backed up first.
Toshiba laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you don't
need to use a disc to restore it to factory default (if that's what you mean by "I want to reset it". The hotkey for the
recovery is the 0 key (don't
use the key on the numpad). To activate it, you need to
turn the computer off, then you need to hold the 0 key then turn the
computer back ON. If you hear a continuous beep, you can let go of the
key and It will then say "Windows is loading files" and will proceed with System Recovery. If
this doesn't work, that means that this computer doesn't have the hidden
partition for you to restore the unit to factory defaults (either it's
faulty or it's not there) and you need to order the recovery discs from
Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777 (for US) and
for Canada, it's 1-800-663-0378.
If you're still under warranty, they'll give it to you for
All data will be erased on your hard drive if you proceed. Make sure that the power wont be interrupted during this process. Do not switch off or restart your computer either.
-Shut the computer down completely
-hold the 0 (zero) key down and at the same time press the power on button release the power when the machine turns on
-when the computer starts beeping release the 0 key
-when the prompt comes up choose YES to continue with system recovery
-Select recover of factory default software and click NEXT
-Click Next again to start recovery
Do not hold the power button down while pressing the "0" key - it'll shut the computer off again. You just need to push it once to turn the power on and then hold the "0" key immediately after you push the power button on - just like turning on the laptop, but this time you're holding the "0" key down.
