Only way is to reinstall Windows from scratch; download the required drivers from Toshiba support webpage for your laptop; burn these onto a CD and load them after Windows has completed installing. Sorry! You could try Toshiba for the recovery CD download as well...

How do i reset to factory settings on the toshiba satellite L25-S119


Hi bigbro1610...

To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall the operatins system and the drivers.
You will need to have the CD's that either you made when you got your computer or if your lucky you got the CD's that the factory furnished with the computer at the time you bought it.
1.
Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new. So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to reinstall the operating system along with the drivers.
That will bring your computer back to factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.
Please take time to rate me

Bring to factory settings


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

You can always reinstall the operating system but you need to buy the software. Then download the device drivers for the laptop. The Toshiba website has all the drivers for your laptop. Another possible solution is for you guys to contact toshiba and ask if they can provide the factory restore CD for your laptop.

Have a nice day.

Restore factory settings on toshiba satellite S1800-3545 laptop


You can follow LavaTech's instructions to set the machine to boot from the cd, and you can load any retail version of windows. You will have to go to http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Product%20Support
to download and install the device drivers.

Recovery disk for my laptop


If it is the drivers you require the Toshiba webite should have them. If you call them with make/model seriel # they may be able to provide you with a replacement recovery disk. Hope this helps.

Replacing a DVD ROM with a DVD RW in a toshiba satellite L25-S119


Because it is a toshiba laptop, you will need to buy a model-specific dvd drive for your laptop direct from toshiba, or at least from an authorized toshiba reseller. This is not something you would get from your local best buy.

You want something like this:
http://www.toshiba.ca/web/product.grp?lg=en&section=1&group=2&product=3330

Order online, or select "Locate Dealer" and find one in your area.

My suggestion is to call up a dealer and verify that this model is compatible with your laptop, because yours is on the older side the slim select bays may be a little too small.

I need to factory reset my Toshiba Portege 2000. I do not have the disc.


This is hard without the recovery disc. You can either:
  1. Order the recovery disc directly from Toshiba
  2. Buy the disc on eBay
  3. Try to find an ISO download and burn the disc
  4. Install another operating system (such as Linux or XP) and get the drivers
The most reliable way would be via Toshiba.

Factory restore


On a laptop there is no factory setting reset option (unless you mean bios reset ). To get the laptop back to the initial 'as new' condition you need to re-install the system using the recovery disk on startup. Put recovery cd 1 inside laptop cd drive and restart the computer. Follow instructions for complete restore.
If you do complete restore you can lose all your data.
