    uhm... does your laptop work fine and you just want to reinstall the system or do you want to reinstall the system because the laptop doesn't work as it should?

Those are the Windows OS startup options...
The short answer is you need to use a recovery disk...
Here's a link to your product support page.
You can see the troubleshooting section of your user's guide in chapter 6 here.
Otherwise, for info about factory reset see forum post here.
To create ASR recovery disks, see here.& here.
For XP recovery console, see here and here.
If you're having malware troubles, I recommend these removal protocols.
Many issues can be resolved by doing maintenance on the system, and running utilities like chkdsk to scan for file corruption. (see here & here.)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Back up all of your data(music,documents,videos)before you do this..if you can boot up then use ubuntu,slax or other types of bootable cds

to set it back to the factory setting you are going to have to get a xp installation(asuming it is xp,or what ever disk came with your comp)the disk should say operating system on it.what you do is put the disk in and boot off of it.if this message don't come up 'press any button to boot from cd......' then your going to have to go into the bios and change the cd drive before the harddrive.if the message does come up hit any button and wait for the blues screen.after it is loaded hit enter f8.if a screen says existing operating systems hit esc(on that screen there is a option to repair the os but you have to know th command lines to do so).if not and it goes to the partion screen then delete the existing partion and create a new one.to do so go to the partion and (delete)hit d L enter.(create)c enter. after you have formed a new partion hit enter....it will format the drive(delete everything)after it is done formatting it will start to instal the os.in xp it will stop 2 times for your input.after everything is done loading you should be able to custamize everything and install things.in the bottom right hand cornor there should be a marker telling you to activate windows.click it and use the product key on the side of your comp(laptop under it)if there is none there try keyfinder.i will email it to you if you can't find .also be aware that you have to reinstall office, antivirus and other programs. so make sure you have all of the cd's. if you have anymore questions my email is gamecrazy944@yahoo.com

Some of these systems have the factory restore option on post boot before the OS kicks in. From a cold boot look for the hit DEL or Fx key and do that - you may have to boot a few times to catch it, and possibly hold the defined key down in anticipation of the option to appear on what looks like a DOS screen. You may need the recovery discs that came wit the system if the image is not in a hidden partition of your drive. Good luck.

I need to restore my Satellite A65 to out of box state. The DVD stopped working as well. The recovery disk is a DVD. I tried to put it on a pin drive and restore from there. As I suspected, it restarts...


Starting with Windows Vista there is a big leap in doing a system restore or recovery. Windows 7 also has the same options. In case your system is not displaying any GUI or there is crash more often , just follow these
  • Press F8 when your computer starts.
  • Choose System Recovery which should be the first option
  • You will be prompted for user name password which should be an administrator account.
  • Next you will get 5 ways of making a restore : Startup repair, System Restore, Windows complete pc restore, Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and Command prompt
windows-vista-system-recovery-tool-windows-7.jpg

System Recovery tools in Windows Vista and Windows 7
Out of the 5 options, Windows Complete PC restore is used when you have backup of your pc or at least of the drive where you had installed windows. Command prompt recovery mode is only for advanced users and Memory Diagnostic tool is only used when windows gives notification to you and asks you to run it. Else it is not required to run it.

Is there a way to restore factory settings (out of the box settings) for the Toshiba Satellite A65-S1062?


Hi blackrose696. There's 2 ways. 1.- If you go to My Computer and see a partition (probably D:) called recovery, go to Start - All Programs - and see if you see under Toshiba - something called recovery or restore (you WILL loose ALL your data) and follow the instruction. If you DO see the partition but you dont see anything under Toshiba folder, then restart the computer and inmediately you will see something like Press F10 or F12 to boot from recovery partition.
If you dont see the recovery partition. The only way is using the Restore CDs... if you dont have those you have to order them from the Toshiba website. (they cost like $15) so that way you are sure you get the license and the drivers correctly. I hope this helps. Please do not forget to rate and provide positive feedback from our support today. Thank you :D

Toshiba A65-S1062 - This laptop overheats and shuts down.


I bet that you had your laptop on all the time.
Your heat sink is saturated with dust and grit.
you may have to open up the unit and use a can of dust remover to clean the fins on the heat sink out. it is causing your CPU to shut down bucause it is becoming overheated.
Happy Fixing =)
