Hi,

Turn the computer off. Hold down the F8 key and turn the computer on.
The advanced boot options should appear. Use the cursor keys to select "repair my computer" and follow the on-screen instructions.


If you need anymore help please post back.



Good luck.

START -> PROGRAMS-> ACCESSORIES->SYSTEM TOOLS
This will take you back to an previous restore point...choose a date before the problem that you have.

Check to see if you have an recovery partition in MY COMPUTER. You are looking for an 2nd hard drive shown next to MAIN or C:. If you do then check your PROGRAMS list and look in TOSHIBA folders to see if you have an recovery program that will make an recovery CD by burning a few CDs or DVD. But you needed to do this before the problem becuase it will make a recovery disc from the state your computer is in now.

IF THIS HELPS PLEASE VOTE.....GOOD LUCK AND THANKS..

I have a toshiba satellite L645D how can I format it to the factory settings like it just came out of the box.


When your Toshiba Satellite laptop goes on the fritz, there are several instances where the best solution is to delete everything and start over. If your system frequently crashes or you can't remove a specific virus, you may want to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. While the easiest way to restore the system is to use the operating system restore disc, it is possible to restore the system without it. Each Satellite laptop also includes a hard drive recovery utility that lets you restore the operating system without the restore disc.

1.Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

2.Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.

3.Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."

4.Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.

5.Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.

6.Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

I want to restore my toshiba satellite 5205-s503 to factory settings. please help. i tried the whole pressing f8 repeatedly thing and there are no options to restore the computer to factory settings.


Hi,
You will need the restore cds that came with your laptop. Insert the restore cd in your dvd drive and restart your computer. When the message "Press any key to boot from cd" press enter.
Then follow the on screen instructions to restore your computer.

Restore toshiba A40 to factory settings


Toshiba Factory Reset
a couple of ways to do that without the CDs - if available on your PC
  1. 1) If you have a recovery partition on the laptop - have a read here to see if you have one http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=recovery+to+factory
  2. 2) This link shows you how to use the partition http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/bulletinDetail.jsp?soid=2291088&pf=true basically as the PC boots TAP F8 key - from the menu that appears choose "repair your computer"
If that option is NOT available then you will need to Order CDs from Toshiba - http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/System-Recovery-and-Recovery/Recovery-media/m-p/9148#U9148

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.
