Question about Computers & Internet

I have been trying to restore my Toshiba Meca M2 using the supplied recovery disk. this comouter also had Solaris installed on it. All goes well until I am asked to remove the recovery disk and then I get something called gunu> looking for some sort of a command. I guess this is a Solaris holdover but I have no idea how to get the system to boot with Windows.

I would suggest downloading GParted Live cd and burn the ISO on to a cd, boot from that, then you can reformat the partitions or eliminate them and start over. It formats as FAT32, NTFS, Linux
whatever you want

From the above link, download 0.3.4-11 iso

How do i restore a toshiba tecra 8200 to factory settings


These antiques came with either Windows 98SE, Windows ME, or Windows 2000. They did not have a recovery partition. You would need to use the OS disk that was supplied with the device, install it, then use the Drivers and Applications Disk that came with it and install them. If you don't have those disks, or if the unit was upgraded past that point, to say Windows XP, you would have to reload that OS and its drivers. There is no easy hotkey recovery method for this device. Sorry.

I need a recovery disk for a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 model# PSLB8U04X02F I had to replace the hard drive but i have no recovery disk. Can you please help me find one thats free I have 4 kids need...


  • Toshiba provides, provided the hdd is not damaged, a restore partition that the windows recovery system can use to completely restore the system. That or using the recovery disk creation utility.

  • Paid Solution: Order a recovery disk from Toshiba (charges for delivery of recovery media in the US is $29.95 for DVD media or $39.95 for USB sticks.)-> Repair Parts Support Toshiba

  • Free Solution: Find someone to install for you the OS of your choice, and get all you need, (drivers, apps, etc), from Toshiba's site -> Search

    Whatever the solution, once done with full installation, (drivers,apps, etc), use the recovery disk creation utility for future use.

How do you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7


Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
  1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:

Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
CAUTION:
Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Installing Drivers and Applications
The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
To reinstall drivers and applications:
  1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.

    htd7c02140000r0136067.jpg

  2. Click "Next".
  3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
  4. Click "Install".
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

Hope this helps.

I have downloaded every driver from toshiba and intel as well as Nvidia heres the thing i have one ! mark saying network controler i have wired and it even shows i have wan but the wan wont work any ideas...


This could be very time consuming..
Remove this driver and rescan - let window auto detect and install driver - network install if needed..
Make sure you have Service pack 3 installed..

There couple be a patch fix that would prevent you from loading your drivers correctly.

If this doesn't work!!

The restoration disks would be the most simplest way of restoring the laptop.
Search by serial Number @ Toshiba.com

Most computer companies only charge $20-$40 us dollars - free shipping..(restoration disk)

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Windows failed to load because a required file is missing or corrupt This is what it keeps saying.


This happens with Windows sometimes. One of the little 'Quirks', as it were.

Do you have the Restoration disk? These will be CD's, that Toshiba MAY have supplied with the computer.
(Should be one of the following:
1.Restore CD
2.Recovery CD
3.Reconfiguration CD
4.Configuration Builder CD, {CBCD}

I indicate May, because many computer manufacturer's had/have stopped supplying them. The trend as far as I can tell, is that they are now supplying them with laptop's, and desktop computers, again.

Their reasoning?
Cost, versus whether or not the user/owner of the computer, will actually use the Restoration disk.

Cost:
Let's say it will cost 50 cents. (US), to produce this disk.
Now take that times 50,000 to 100,000 computers.

$25,000 to $50,000 dollars.

If the computer owner isn't going to use them, why supply them?
Sometimes, the computer owner is afraid to use the Restoration disk. Winds up taking it to a computer repair shop. That little disk stays right there, in the computer desk drawer.

Restoration is also put on a separate area of the harddrive. A separate partition on the harddrive.

Problem is when this form of Restoration is used, the computer is brought back to the way it was, when it came from the factory.

Back to Day 1.

This means all the programs, and applications the computer owner has physically installed on the computer, are GONE!
All the one's downloaded also.

All personal files are gone. Pictures, videos, music, and any documents the computer owner has put on, is GONE!

The computer goes back, (Restored), like it was when it came from the factory.

The Restoration disk has a Repair option. The necessary Windows files are repaired, and all personal documents, plus programs, and applications are saved.

Just the necessary Windows 32, files are repaired.

It could be a harddrive that is failing.

The way to get to the bottom of this, is to use the Restoration disk.
Or, completely wipe off all your personal data, and restore the computer back to Day 1

Which way would you like to proceed?

If you have the disk we can proceed from there. Or you may want to order them from Toshiba.

How do i restore to factory settings?


I have researched Toshiba website. They do not list replacement system DVD/CD there. Did find a listing on Ebay but the item was sold. Checked the manual and there is no information on restoration within it. The result is that I do not see any easy answer for you. You could contact tech support @ Toshiba, generally pay for the call and requrest from them the restoration software. Or you could buy XP CD install the CD and acquire from online the drivers for the computer. Regret that the choices are not better.
