The key functions along the top of the keyboard can not be changed. They are preset and all of that model function the same.

I am trying to reset my toshibe m45 s165 to its factory settings, but when i try the whole press "0" and power at the same time, the laptop keeps turning off since im holding the power button,...

Do not hold the power button down while pressing the "0" key - it'll shut the computer off again. You just need to push it once to turn the power on and then hold the "0" key immediately after you push the power button on - just like turning on the laptop, but this time you're holding the "0" key down.

How can i restore a toshiba satellite a 135 to factory settings without a recovery disk


To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.


* 1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.

Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.

* 2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.
* 3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.
* 4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.
* 5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.
* 6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.
* 7) Click Next to Start recovery.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

  1. Close out any software currently running on your Toshiba Satellite L305 laptop. Navigate to the laptop's "Start" menu and choose "Shut Down."

  2. Hold down the laptop's "0" key and press the power button. Keep the key held down during the boot up process until the "Toshiba Recovery Wizard" window loads on the screen.

  3. Click the check box labeled "Recovery of Factory Default Software." Choose the "Next" option.

  4. Choose the "Recover to out-of-box state" radio button. Select the "Next" button and click "Next" again. Wait for the "Press any key" prompt to appear and tap a key to restart the laptop.

  5. Use the prompts that appear on the screen to choose your region, time zone and keyboard settings. Type your new Windows user name and password in the text boxes when prompted. Click "Finish" to load the new operating system.

Hi Barb,

On the Toshiba A70 you should try holding down the fn key at lower left and pressing the F5 key which is the video transfer keyboard command for pretty much every Toshiba laptop. Otherwise, their little pictograms on the F keys almost always have a tiny representation of a laptop next to a monitor.

Hope this is helpful.

Toshiba laptops satellite 4090

Hi, The laptop you purchased is an older model. It will use most any IDE laptop hard drive. The drive you mentioned from your Dell will work in it. You will need to pull the hard drive and put the sliders or hardware off the old one on to the new one. Look here for more info on your laptop. Look under portables.
