When booting up press F8 and select safe mode ,then remove any software you installed just before this started to happen,
or use the restore function in system tools to restore back to an earlier time before the problem start.

good luck
Terry

Hi.
Try this: Press and hold down the power button for 10 seconds, let go and wait for a minute before powering it on again.

How do you convert a toshiba laptop back to its factory settings. I know the windows program is on the hard drive but I don't know how to access it.


Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partion on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.


To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.


ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE POWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURING THIS PROCESS.



1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.


Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.


2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.


3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.


4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.


5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.


6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.


7) Click Next to Start recovery.


I hope you find this step by step solution helpful for you. If so, rate it up.

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Toshiba error message F3E1000001


Check with all your friends, as someone has enabled the boot password in your bios. Probably a prank, maybe malicious.

If you can find the CMOS battery (might have to take it apart) you could unplug it and remove all bios settings including the password.

My laptop is relatively new and I had it on hibernation while I was at a meeting. My toshiba was working fine when I got back and then all of a sudden it shut down. It won't restart, the screen is blank,...


Press and hold the power switch for about 10 seconds. This should force a power-off. Then try to power it up again. Make sure you are plugged into the wall power, in case the battery is dead.
