Toshiba Laptop Issue

Hi, I have a toshiba L300-25g laptop thats a friends, they created some recovery discs when they first brought the laptop, recently there was an issue and i was given it to fix, i used these recovery discs with wiped the machine clean but then on step 6/6 of the setup it come up with an error, when starting the laptop up it would state that Bootmgr was missing. I managed however to install Vista using the disc from my Dell laptop, but im struggling with finding drivers as it was previously Vista x32 now its Dell Vista x64. Can someone point my in the right direction please.

I you haven't wipe out the recovery partition yet you can reinstall the OS from there, you can access it by pressing and holding the 'f10' key during the toshiba splash screen.

I need to reset my laptop


Kevin,

If you want to restore it to factory condition, you will need your recovery discs which came with it. If you do not have them, Lenovo has a tool to create your own recovery discs you can download from their website. If your laptop is shot and you don't have another PC handy with a CD/DVD burner, you may just want to buy the recovery discs from them.

Hi,

What your friends have told you is correct for newer Toshiba models, they do have a "recovery partition"

Here is how you recover the OS >>>>>>

1, Make sure the laptop is turned off.
2, Hold down the zero (0) key and turn the laptop on, keep it pressed in until you see the "Toshiba Recovery Wizard" screen.
3, Choose the "Recovery of Factory Default Software" and click next.
4, The "Recovery of Factory Default Software" will appear.
5, Choose the "Recover to out-of-box-state" you will then get a message that all your data will be lost. Click next and the recovery process will start.

Once complete you will see a message that the HDD has been recovered.

Before you start the recovery process its a good idea to back up any data you have unless you not bothered or have already done so.



Reagrds.

Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator isn't working


hello lazerr_man,

Try to use another freeware burnprogram like burnatonce to create an
other CD, just to check if the Combo-drive is writing properly.

If you don't get any error messages like the ones from Toshiba program, then the problem is the toshiba software.

If other burn programs find difficulties in accessing CDs or DVD-Rs
then the drive itself giving you a hard time and might seek for replacement.

You may find the toshiba exchange parts too expensive and the internal drive is still reading disks properly, then think about an external dvd-rw drive, but make sure to buy a highspeed USB one (or even firewire, if the laptop has the port), else it will run rather slowly.

good luck

REFORMAT TOSHIBA SATELLITE L25 S1193


It is not clear what you mean by restore here... do you want to salvage you r personal data on laptop or just want to restore the OS... which you said you have installed XP.
the copied recovery disc may not be booting for various reasons...
1.not set to boot fromcd drive in bios settings.
2. cd copy was not cd to cd copy or it was not made bootable. maybe you just copied the data of the friends recovery disc.

Sound drivers for Xp sp2


For specific models with different chipset drivers, you can get the sound driver & pretty much everything else on support.toshiba.com. If you can't connect to the Internet, "Tecra, Portege", & sometimes "Qosmio" models came with a built-in HDD recovery, meaning you need to create your recovery disk by running the "Recovery Disk Creator". An application to create your recovery disk. A shortcut is created on the desktop by default, if you cannot find it there, try looking at "C:\Program Files\Toshiba\Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator" & run the "exe" file, it should give you a menu to create one. After creating the disk, you can use that disc to install the drivers for all Toshiba pre-installed devices/softwares on that machine. For Satellite models, the disc should come with the laptop when you boughtt it. When you have the disc, just insert it inside of windows, it will give you options to install the driver & software for a specific toshiba device.


Hope this helps.

ERROR INSTALLING PREINST3.SWM


The work around for this is to take the Toshiba restore disk and do a dvd copy disk to disk and use the copies to restore the computer. I had the same problem and the disk would not read correctly. I called Toshiba and they were no help. I saw a post on another web log and they suggested copying the origianl restore disks. They copies ran without a problem.
