There are two ways to reset your Toshiba Laptop to factory settings.
First is using Recovery Media Disc and the second is the hidden partition on your hard drive.

If you're going to use Recovery Media Disc follow these steps:

If you have two or more recovery media disc try to insert first the disc that has a label of 1 of 2 or 1 of 3. Then turn of your laptop.
Make sure that the disc is inside. After that try to find the letter "C" key on your keyboard. Now turn on your laptop and keep tapping the letter "C" key. If you have successfully accessed the Boot Menu choose Toshiba Recovery Wizard.
After choosing the Toshiba Recovery Wizard there will be a big warning screen that will appear choose the option yes and after that you will have a series of option. Remember to choose always the first option after the big warning screen appears.

That's it. You will have a message that the Windows is initializing files.
That process will take 1-2 hours for it to finish.

Hidden Partition on the Hard Drive.

Turn on the laptop and as soon as the laptop turns on press and hold down the number 0 key (the number 0 it should be on the top of the keyboard beside the number 9 key) keep 0 pressed until Toshiba leading innovation appears. Usually you will have a beeping sound when you are trying to access the System Recovery of the Hard Drive. That's an indication that you have successfully accessed the Systrem Recovery of the laptop.
Wait for the screen that say Windows is loading files.
After that you will see a big warning screen the choose yes and
Choose 1st option always.
Cx able to initialize the partition.
Disconnect cables and turn off the wireless switch.
Recovery would take 1-2 hours for it to finish.

Toshiba reset


Hello.
the factory reset data is on the old drive.
On the bottom of your laptop there is a windows key it also states the version (home or pro) 32 bit or 64 bit.
You might have luck going to a computer store and ask them to burn a copy of your version of windows. costs me about $10.
using your windows key from the bottom of your laptop and that CD you can install windows (while wiping the drive of any previous data if you choose) this of course is not a factory reset it is a clean install of windows.
You will need to download some drivers from the laptop manufactures web site, for optimum results.
good luck.
let me know if this helps.

How can I install my Lexmark P915 printer to my vista O/S laptop


Unplug the printer usb cable from your computer. To install, I suggest you use the Lexmark P915 printer software you can download from the Lexmark website. But check if your Vista is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. For 32-bit, click on this link: http://bit.ly/9MpwNB. For 64-bit, click on this link: http://bit.ly/d4tR3d. Download and install. Follow the instructions carefully. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

WHAT IS THE OS FOR A TOSHIBA A 105 LAPTOP IS IT 32 BIT OR 64 BIT


this computer is shipped with windows xp 32 bit, can be upgraded to vista. As for 32 or 64 bit?, the only difference you will see between them is if you have more than 3 gig of ram installed a 64 bit O/S will see and use all the ram, where a 32 bit O/S is limitted to 3gig of memory it can address.
Personally, I believe you will have a lot easier time finding the 32bit drivers for your laptop and printer. 64bit drivers for older hardware are sometimes very difficult to find. GO with 32bit on this laptop.

It may be vista compatable but it may only be 32 bit compatable not 64 bit. Not sure but that may be your problem.
