The back and restore program is loacted in the control panel. You can use that to back-up your entire computer. Switch the control panel to classic view and it is the fourth selection at the top. I assume you are running windows vista.

Go to your start button > programs > accessories > system tools, look through here and see if Vista gives you an option to create a recovery media disc from this local. If not here is the Toshiba Support site link. This page shows the recovery program download for an L500. When the page loads, go to page 4. That is where your download is.

How to factory reset?


Hello and thank you for using Fixya.

First, You will need to make the recovery discs which are created using the built in program from your computer. Copy them onto a blank CD/DVD. Now insert the newly created restore disc to restore your factory settings by rebooting from the hard drive. Turn off the PC. Wait a minute. Now hold down the 0 (zero) key and push the power button once. A screen message will appear after a few seconds. Choose to reboot from HDD. (or you can choose to reboot with recovery disks using the DVD drive.) Follow the instructions. It will take about two hours to reinstall your operating system.

If you have any more question feel free to ask
