Log onto Toshiba and give them your serial number and ID. You can find your recovery disk there.

Hi, I am trying to set my Toshiba Satellite


Just before the laptop boots, a Toshiba screen opens inviting F2 or F12. This will let you into the BIOS menu if you press F2 at that time. When you are there, find Default Settings in the menu and press F10 and enter.
That is now set to default and you can start the restore process.
Hope that helps.

Factory settings


I think with the L40 it should have a recovery partition, It depends on whether the last owner overwrote it or not, if he was stupid enough to leave his details on there then probably not.

If when you turn on the machine, hold the 0 key(zero), a HDD utility should appear prompting you if you want to overwrite data. Follow the instructions and it should go back to factory defaults.

(if zero isn't the correct key, its likely to be one of the higher F keys ie F8, F9 etc.)
