Since you have Win 7 Home Premium, start with making a System Repair disc. You just need a blank CD-R or DVD+/-R (DL is OK, but not an R/W disc). Click Start > Maintenance > Create a System Repair Disc. (This will save you from needing a OS install disc in the future)

Next you can use the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator to create a set of backup discs for the initial configuration of the computer. (Use DVDs for this to avoid needing lots of discs.) This lets you make one copy of the Media - no chance to update for new drivers or any other information.

You can save your files with the Backup and Restore (in the same Maintenance files as the System Repair disc). With Home Premium this only works with an locally attached external hard drive.

If you need a complete backup after this, you will need third party software. Some external drives come with the software. Norton Ghost, Paragon Backup and Recovery, and Acronis True Image will all do a full backup to CD, DVD or external drive; there are others.Most of these will make incremental updates as well. There are a few free packages but those don't have the features of the above (like recovering just one file if needed).

I hope this helps.

Screen doesnt come on


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Toshiba Satellite L455-S5000 turns on but screen is black


Try external monitor, if it works then more likley the backlight inverter or the lamp is bad.
see www.insidemylaptop.com for example.

I cant fint my system recover drive, i want to reinstall visat on it, its toshibe satellite A135-S4427 please help


Most Toshiba computers do _NOT_ come with a set of "System Recovery" disks.

Instead, there is a program installed on the computer that you use to write your own set of CD/DVD diskettes, using your "blank" disks and your CD/DVD burner. Run the program to create a set of disks.

Or, when you restart your computer, look for displayed text like "press Fnn to start System Recovery". Press the named key.

I would like to restore my Toshiba Satellite laptop A85 to original state. Can I do this without the disks. I have backed up all of my information and want to start over.


It depends. Some laptop computers have a usually-hidden "recovery" partition on the disk-drive.

Reboot the computer, and look for a "start recovery" option as the first page of text on the computer-screen. Press the specified key to access that "recovery" partition.

Or, some Toshiba computers have a utility to *CREATE* a set of system-recovery CDs, by burning the necessary files onto CD/DVD-recordable disks. Run that utility.
