It's pity you lose the Recovery CD, because all software incl. the windows operating system and all the drivers are in that CD. Try to contact you local dealer or reseller and ask for the CD backups and bring the proof of purchase. Maybe .. just maybe they will help you.

You will need to purchase WIndows Operating System and this will will format the entire Hard drive and re-install WIndows on the laptop. WIth WIndows XP or Vista it should find most of the drivers for the components on the laptop. For the specific things on the laptop, you can then go to the Toshiba website and download (probably from another PC) the needed drivers for your system. You will also have to purchase any application software unless you utlize the OpenSource free Star Office which is comparable to Microsoft Office. I hope this helps.

I get the error message when i try to create media recovery for my laptop toshiba l505. the error messsage is "no HDD recovery area", "the toshiba recovery media creator cannot be...


I am glad to HELP YOU!


When you start to create the RECOVERY MEDIA your machine is creating a virtual file [a temporary one...] that includes all parameters and drivers and system files of your operating system; once the temporary file is done the recovery files are written on the indicated media [a hard drive or a DVD/CD].
Because of the huge size of the file [the temporary one] you need enough room for the virtual file to be created.
So you got your error message just because you DON'T HAVE ENOUGH ROOM on your hard drive.
My suggestion is: find an external drive [a USB attached hard drive] and make the RECOVERY MEDIA there. Meanwhile try to clean up a little bit your hard drive by using that application in Windows called DISK CLEANER [START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > DISK TOOLS > DISK CLEANER].

My best regards!

If its not detected in device manager and your laptop has HDD recovery
1 type toshiba application installer in the start search box, press enter
2 in that program choose "install application and drivers", click next
3 it will go to a window where you have the list of all the drivers
4 look for the CDDVD drive, click it to highlight

afterwards if its still not detected you probably have a hardware issue and probably the drive itself needs to be replaced

Gateway laptop reset


Gateway Direct systems went "media-less" back in September 2004. In the event of a system crash users could either 1) restore their systems from the Recovery Partition OR 2) from the backup media that they were prompted to create on first power-up -- which would provide them with up to 5 blank CD-R discs depending on their system's configuration.

On the factory load of the hard drive, the recovery partition will not contain operating system files. It only contains application and driver files.
The first time the recovery partition is used, it prompts the user to insert their System Recovery CD/DVD to copy files from the CD to the recovery partition.
The Drivers and Applications CD is not bootable and does not contain Operating System files.
The System Recovery CD/DVD is bootable but does not contain any application or driver files.
If the end-user erases the hard drive and restores the computer using the System Recovery CD/DVD and an Applications and Drivers CD, the recovery partition is not recreated.

This means that you will need the operating system restore disc FIRST then the recovery partition will work for you

I broken my recovery and applications/drive cd satellite 1400, num two.


If you live in the USA and have a Staples near by you can have them order replacement recovery CD/DVDs for about $30 (It takes about 5 to 7 business days).
You should be able to call TOSHIBA also but, I do not know how much they charge for recovery CD/DVDs.

I'm need to replace the hard drive without having a system disk.


Google "TOSHIBA RECOVERY AND APPLICATIONS/DRIVERS SATELLITE A100/A105 SERIES" to find the cd delivered with a TOSHIBA. the fourth entry shows what appears to be the real thing. On their webpage EDIT>FIND "A15" to locate the CD.

There may be others in the 355 Google pages listed.

On the original factory disk gives a TOSHIBA Phone number, 1-800-457-7777, for support. I think they sell the disk for @$40.

good luck.

Used Recovery Disk and I have an application error


It seems like your hard drive has some bad sectors.

You need to run some disk manager software to check/fix tour disk.

The best choice would be to download the "ultimate cd" from here

Boot from the cd, go to "hard disk tools" and select a disk manager (better to select the one from the same manufacturer of the disk).

Run a scan, and fix the drive (if it is possible). Then rerun your system restore cd again.


If the hard drive can't be fixed, you'll have to replace it before running the system retore.


Good luck!

Installing drivers after reformating hard drive


Well, can you use the system you wrote this post on to access Toshiba's support site, download the drivers for the M35, and tranfer them via flash drive or cd or usb? That would be best, given the information at hand. You don't have to use the actual system in question to download drivers. Good luck
