Before you delete everything & start again,create a backup CD of O/S(presuming its windows) to reinstall when you have finished.
If you have a O/S disk,just insert disk and follow the instructions as they proceed.
When asked for a Administrators Password make sure you remember.
It is normally fairly easy to reinstall your O/S,just follow closely.
Any pains,send request to me @
auramsoft@hotmail.com
I will talk you thru it.
Don't forget,if you Do Not Have A O/S CD,make backup CD of the original O/S.Everything else you can delete.

Toshiba no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key


try booting from a Windows installation disc. Choose the repair installation option. If this does not work, you may have to erase (format) your whole drive and start over again by reinstalling Windows from scratch.

Before erasing the drive, you might want to pull it out, put as a second drive in another working computer or inside a USB hard drive case and download all of your information from it. Otherwise you may have a mess on your hands with lost data/documents/photos.

Selling my Toshiba laptop and I want to restore it to default/factory settings. When this was bought did not come with a disc.


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. Thank you for using fixya

IS there any factory seeting hidden in TOSHIBA


On some models of TOSHIBA laptops you can access the system restore partition by tapping on the 'zero' (0) during boot.

This will erase EVERYTHING on your drive and reset it to a "out of the box" state. So be sure to back up anything you want to keep before doing a system restore.

Factory settings


When you first turn on your computer, press the F10 key until it boots into the recovery partition. Once there, select advanced then follow the onscreen instructions. Warning: This will erase all of your data.

Some newer HPs use a different key then F10; if F10 doesn't work, then look on the screen it should tell you which key to press to start recovery.
