I agree with tom and enquiry. You'll have to see identify your laptop's model and manufacturer.

If the laptop came with recovery disks, it is best to use them. But if you're using Windows XP or later and can still access it, then you might also want to consider System Restore (Start > [All] Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore)

I have no factory resettings disc and i need to put my computer back to when i first got it as it has completly gone all funny since i got windows 7 put on it can u tell me how to do this with out the cd...

Depending on the laptop manufacture" Alt+F10 or F11 will put you in the recovery partition. You can do a factory system restore there. Some systems you need to get into the boot options menu and that's usually achieved by tapping the F8 key while the system is first loading and then selecting repair my computer at the top of the list.

How do you reboot a mini laptop to a factory default in whats the right cd do you need to download something if it ask u to download stuff.

To reboot your mini laptop to factory default you need to re-install your OS (Operating System).
To do this you need your Windows xp, vista, or Windows 7 disc, and make sure you have your product key. Ie. Product Key: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx (Most product keys are on the bottom of the laptop, and are 25 Characters).
Put the disc in your laptop and restart your computer. Boot from CD, and follow the prompts. It will ask you if you want to format your partition (Erase all your data including virus's) and format it. Then it will install your OS, and you will have factory default setting's and programs.

Hope this helps and if you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask me! Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

Factory settings

Hi there.
With most Fujitsu laptops i have worked with it has either been F11 on start-up or as the machine starts press F8, it will take you to a sub menu, in that menu should be the option to factory restore the system.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

I need to restart my laptop to factory settings

if you want it to be factory settings, you would need the exact same Operatin Sytem installation disk which they probably didnt give you. The reason i say the same is because your serial numbers wont match as your original OS. Anyways if you only doing it to sell the laptop or two have a fresh Operating system, i would recomend you !1) Get a copy os Windows XP
2) Backup all your important files
3) Format your laptop and reinstall XP
4) Restore your files
5) Download (If you dont have it already) your drivers for your laptop. This can be found on Toshibas website.
6) Install all drivers and thats it. You have a Factory Set Laptop
