I would like to restore my computer to the factory settings. How can I do this without a restore disc


Depending on the Make and model, press F8 just before it boots and select restore. If the restore partition is still intact, you may restore your factory settings.

I want to restore my factory settings


Do you have the restore discs? If not order them or go to Toshiba site and order them or download them if that is the option they provide for you. Also if you have the restore disc then just insert the restore disc and follow the on screen directions.
Make sure that the boot order is set to DVD or CD as the first boot and hard disk as the second boot this should be already set in the BIOS. Order the discs if you do not have them imperative. Thanks for using FixYa!
P.S. If you cannot get a restore disk from Toshiba I use this site for all restore discs. Note you have a PayPal account it is free to get at PayPal.com I use PayPal because I know it is a legit site. Click Here

My asus 1001ha is infected with viruses & wont do anything how do i restore to factory settings?


If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

If you still want to restore it to factory settings, you will need the restoration CD/DVD that came with the laptop, put it in the drive and boot from it to start the restoration to factory settings. If you don't have the restoration disc, you will need a Windows installation disc to install a clean copy of Windows and wipe the HDD. Same process, put disc in and boot from it then follow the instructions for Windows installation (you will need the drivers disc though).

Recovery disks, Factory specs, pda files and pcmcia?


thanks for your smile
recovery disc is used for recovering your operating system when your pc is having problem.
restoring back to factory default means the settings of the computer when you received the computer from the shop. in other words default settings.
pda files are personal data assistance files.
pcmcia card is same as lan card( also known as nic card, ethernet card) of your pc. pcmcia card is used in lap tops.
