You have to have a recovery CD.
The partition contains information that would help recover your system and is used by the recovery CD.

How to restore a toshiba satellite a135-s2286 notebook without cd?

the f8 function is only to try and remedy boot problems. the recovery option you're getting is to restore if you have already made recovery discs.
if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive you should be able to access it when you boot up. before starting your laptop press and hold 0(zero) key and power on the laptop. once it starts you should get a screen with 3 options then choose option 1 to get back to factory restore.

Im helping a friend fix their toshiba a305-s4527 laptop running windows vista and they need the recovery cd, i cant find it online and i told my friend when i find it i would link it so she could buy it

In most cases this is only available from the Toshiba Website through the Software update section. Because the software is Toshiba specific and will not install on a machine other than Toshiba in that series. Now, having said that, if you did not wipe out the partitions on that hard drives there is a recovery hard drive on that laptop. This is how they distribute software now. You can usually access the recovery system by pressing and holding the F10 Button right after you push the on/off switch. This will access the recovery menu and allow you to restore the system to it's original factory settings and drivers. If this option no longer works you will have to go through the Toshiba Software update section to purchase the recovery disk. Here is the place to start:

Copy and paste this link in your browser and it will take you to the update section for the laptop you identified.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop A135 series and it won't recognize my toshiba external hard drive. However, the drive works fine with my HP

This can be an issue with the USB port, or the drivers.
Is the hard drive a Power HDD ? that means it has 2 usb chords one for power and one for data transfer? coz those might not work with laptops, also has it ever worked with the laptop ?
If this was helpful, then kindly rate me.

I have a toshiba A135 Laptop and the cd/dvd drive has stopped working. if I boot from my toshiba system recovery disk via the cd/DVD drive.. How will I know if the drive can be restored to normal...

if you are able to boot from the recovery media then you can justify reimaging the system as it would seem that it is a software issue. backup your files beforehand and you should have no problem.

The recovery on my Toashiba Satellite A130/A135 doesn't work

Try to boot the machine in safe mode by pressing F8 as the computer starts up, if will let you boot into safe mode as it sounds like there could be some bad sectors on the drive causing it to hang on boot.
To check this right click on the C drive and select "properties", then select "tools" tab, in the tools option check the volume for errors.
This can take some time to perform so please be patient.

If you can't get the machine to boot into safe mode please post back

All drives xp for Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527

Ok just to clear the question up... I you just installed a new HD in your laptop and have already downloaded your recovery cd that came with the pc then you are asking for the remaining drivers that you are missing... if so here is what you need to do. If you are not missing your internet driver go to this requires a yearly membership of I think 29$ This will scan your pc and give you the drivers to download. If you just installed a new HD and if you turn your computer on and get nothing this is because you did not install your recovery disk,,, if you do not have your recovery disk ONLY Toshiba can provide this and you can order it from them. I would also call Toshiba for your driver disk as well if you cannot get on the internet...
