Question about Toshiba Satellite P30 P35 Series Notebook

1 Answer

Blank Screen I've got a Toshiba laptop; as I'm about to run a "recovery disc", I accidentally press "F1" instead of "F2" for set up, then suddenly, the screen turn to "blank", no display at all. so I try to connect the VGA terminal to a monitor, but the output is still a "blank screen"

Check system then press f1 key

Try this:

    • 1

      Insert the Toshiba A60 recovery disc into the CD/DVD-ROM drive.

    • 2

      Power off the Toshiba (with the recovery disc still loaded inside the optical drive).

    • 3 Hold down the "F12" key, at the same time hit the "Power" button to turn the system back on. You don't have to hold down the Power button, but keep holding the F12 key.
    • 4

      Release the "F12" key when the" In Touch with Tomorrow TOSHIBA" screen is displayed. This will open up the BIOS.

    • 5

      Change the boot order by using the arrow keys to select "CD/DVD ROM" icon in the menu. The Toshiba will now boot from the recovery disc and restore the system. Follow any additional on-screen instructions.

Bootmgr is missing

That is unfortunate, the recovery disc is the only option at this point to reload the operational system. Go online to Toshiba and contact customer support and the technical department to see if you can purchase a recovery disc for your make and model.

How to reset a toshiba satellite a135-s4527

You may reset the password on your own.

Windows Password Recovery is right what you need in your case. The password recovery tool is designed to reset Windows login password once you accidentally forgot it or have no access to your system including Windows 7, Vista, XP etc. By burning a bootable CD, you can enter almost any computer with Windows administrator login password protected within a few seconds. Here are the step by step tutorial, pretty easy, I am sure you can handle it!

Step 1: Download Windows Password Recovery and install it on another computer.
Step 2: Prepare a blank CD/USB and run the software and use it to burn the ISO file to it.
Step 3: Put it into the CD-ROm and restart your locked computer. Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the CD-ROM or USB drive. Note: start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and remove your forgotten password. GOOD LUCK!

How to reset to factory settings a toshiba satellite A305-S6829 with Vista ? (pressing 0, or F8 didn't bring me far!

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

Laptop won't boot up. I have used this program at school to bypass bios passwords and i find it to work well.
You may also try to type Toshiba where it asks for the password.
