Toshiba satellite P300-150 4 years old now and very slow! want to get it back to original settings but dont have a cd-rom reovery disk, thought it was built into laptop?


Hi modplod868

Most computers come with a utility/program to make the Recovery CD's, look in "All Programs" and see if yours has it.
There is another way you can restore your computer...
Double left click on "Start">All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> System Restore
This will take your computer back to an earlier time when it was running good, use the oldest date listed.

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 (2005), recently replaced hard drive (newer, bigger, faster) and paid to have computer software re-installed by a competent/knowledgable person. Worked fine..then, I get blank...


The Diagnostic Utility was deleted either by the person who repaired your computer most likely. This partition is used for recovery purposes and is installed by the factory. If you have the proper recovery disc that came from the factory you will need to do a complete re-install to factory default. If you do not have the original disc you will need to get one from Dell to bring your machine back to factory load. This disc has everything that was installed including the partition as well as the drivers and other software that came with your computer when you purchased it.

Now assuming that the technician had restored the computer back to factory specs you should not be missing the Diagnostic Partition you may want to return this to the person you paid to this fix and get them to restore it back to factory specs. Now if you did not have the recovery CD at the time when he began the work he was forced to do a format on the drive and use a purchased disc from Microsoft which he had to also search and install drivers himself. This is a problem because it would then not be his fault. He did what he had to do bypassing the factory stuff when you purchased this laptop now it is at the hands of independent software and not the original with no other partitions others than C: Which in many cases especially laptops can cause issues with devices not being installed properly outside of the scope of the original recovery CD.

With all that said make sure that you are booting from the DVD or CD-ROM drive as the first boot. You will have to go to the BIOS to check this out. I advise you to use the original software that came with your computer. Insert disc into the drive and re-boot and follow the onscreen instructions that is all you can do, if this does not work you will have to bring your computer to a repair shop and go from there. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Emachine 3653 factory restore


You can use the Restore CD that came with the computer. The eMachines restore disk sets your PC back to factory settings with the original operating system and programs that were shipped with the computer. Doing so resolves many problems that can arise from long-term computer use, viruses, or the operating system slowing down.


1. To do a factory restore insert the restore CD then reboot the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from the CD.


2. Select the option to "Reformat the drive to factory settings."

3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system and original software that came with your computer.

4. Once the Restore finishes, you can re-install all the programs that you added to the computer as well as restore your files.


Reminder: Reformatting your computer erases all of your installed programs, personal documents, pictures and music. If you have the ability to, back up all of your personal data using a removable flash drive, external hard drive or DVDs before doing a Factory Restore.

I want to reboot my dell 1505 inspiron laptop to factory specs. Please help.


Note: restoring your computer to its original factory settings will clear most of the data off of your hard drive, including personal files. Be sure to back up what you need.

Some computers ship without a system restore, but your computer more than likely has it.
To restore your computer to its original state, do the following:
- Make sure your computer is powered off.
- Turn on your computer, and hold the 'Ctrl' key and the 'F11' key at the same time
- When the menu appears, select 'restore'
- If your computer does not have system restore, you will not be able to / not see restore
- Confirm that you wish to restore your computer
- Your system will be reset to its original state
- When finished, select 'finish' to reboot the computer

You will have to go though some of the menus that you did when you originally had your computer. Your computer should finish restoring after these menus.

Restore CD


You don't need a "restore" cd.

You can just use any copy of Tiger.

Borrow one!

Slow computer -how to restore a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro v1000


If the units are running slow, you can do some maintenance on them to speed them up.

First, run defragmenter on both units.(in Safe mode)

Download ScrubXP which will automatically clear your temp, cookies and TIF files.

Download CCleaner and run it.

Run your Anti-virus program: download the free version of AVG. (Great virus protection.)

Other programs to use are SpyBlaster and Winpatrol, all of which are free.
This should help, if you feel that you need to format and restore the units, youcan do so. But try this first.

Usb 1 is not very slow, maybe computer system is busy doing some other services which is unknown to you.

if you plan to restore computer back to original state. you should back up first the important files(personal files any files that is important to you.)

system restore is not quite good except , you have an original windows system cd enclosed in your computer. doing this; insert cd and boot the computer using the cd.

If non of those; then you should provide windows cd and reinstall your windows: doing this; insert cd and boot the computer using the cd.

just follow the onscreen instructions.

some drivers of your computer notify me with the brand , model, motherboard details. if in case.
