If you mean reformat that is possible. Just make sure you back up your drivers. You should also have a Windows operating system CD.
YOu can also perform system restore which will restore your computer to an earlier date.
System restore options is found under accessories and then system tools.


Cheers,

Hi charles1700m,

There are 2 options if you want to Restore the laptop to its factory settings. You can either use the Recovery Disk if you have one or use the Hard Disk Recover. I've posted here the guide on how to do a Hard Disk Recovery. Just follow the instructions on the manual.

How to factory rest


  • Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.
  • Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.
  • Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."
  • Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.
  • Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.
  • Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.
The hard disk drive restore utility is saved on a separate partition on the Toshiba laptop's hard drive. If that partition has been formatted you won't be able to use the restore utility. If you don't have the operating system recovery disc and the partition has been formatted, you will need to contact Toshiba's customer support to have them send you a new disc.

All of your existing data will be permanently removed from the hard drive when the factory restore process has finished running.

IS there any factory seeting hidden in TOSHIBA


On some models of TOSHIBA laptops you can access the system restore partition by tapping on the 'zero' (0) during boot.

This will erase EVERYTHING on your drive and reset it to a "out of the box" state. So be sure to back up anything you want to keep before doing a system restore.

Toshiba Satellite A105 s4254 Wont Boot Recovery Disk


You most likely have a bad hard drive. I would replace the hard drive and run a recover disk to put your laptop back to it factory condition. if you don't have a recovery disk you can get one at one of the sites below.

Another user asked the same question only he wanted a different os on each partition. http://www.fixya.com/support/t289525-change_operating_system

As far as start up time. You can add more Ram or you can go into the bios and see if some type of test or diagnostics are turned on that you can turn off.

If the computer in general is slow, then defrag would help speed up the hard drive.

The other is
start , run , cmd, enter
chkdsk /r

Do you wish to reboot then run chkdsk on nest start up,,,,, Hit yes.
