To access the Toshiba recovery partition hold down the 0 (zero) key while you turn on the laptop. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.
Once the wizard shows up it will guide you through the recovery.

Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

My tosshiba satellite A665-55186 wont go in to windows boot, what can i do??


Just like other computers, your Toshiba laptop may start failing to boot the operating system completely, or may fail to boot up at all. Boot problems are caused by virus infections and issues related to hardware and software. With the proper troubleshooting techniques, boot problems can be remedied to get the laptop into good working condition.

1. Perform initial hardware checks. Ensure that the laptop has enough battery life to boot up. Charge the laptop using its AC adapter and then try to boot the laptop again. If nothing happens, plug the AC adapter into another power outlet. If this does not help, check to see if external drives (flash drive, external hard drive, etc.) are connected into one of your USB ports. Unplug it from the laptop and press the laptop's power button. If the laptop powers on but fails to load the operating system, proceed to the next step.

2. Ensure that the hard disk is not disabled in the boot sequence in your BIOS. Otherwise, the laptop will fail to fully boot the operating system. Reboot the computer and press a key that will lead you to the BIOS page. Set your hard disk as your "first boot priority," or first in the "boot sequence." Note that the steps on loading the BIOS as well as navigating throughout the BIOS pages will depend on what brand of BIOS is installed in your laptop.

3. Choose boot to the "Last known good configuration" if you get an error page before the operating system boots up. If after choosing this option the computer reboots again, choose "Start Windows Normally," if this is in the list of options.

4. Consider repairing or reinstalling the operating system if the computer still fails to boot after the steps above. Repairing the operating system will retain your current data and settings. Reinstalling the operating system means reformatting or deleting all data in your computer and installing a fresh copy of the operating system.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards from fixya

Hi i had to reformat my toshiba satelite p300 because i had viruses but now my user name and password wont log in to the computer any ideas thanks ?


You will need to use the Toshiba recovery CD for that. Unfortunately, if you did not create a recovery CD when the computer is still working, the only way you can get one is to call Toshiba and purchase a recovery CD. Otherwise, you will need to buy a Windows CD as well and all the other application that comes with your computer and install them manually. I do hope this information helped.

I changed my Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527's Vista operating system to windows 7 but afterwards, I have been experiencing microphone and speaker problems. My microphone is not working and my speaker volume...


Go to this website and select windows 7(32) or (64) depends on what version you are using then on the categories select sound and click Realtek Audio Driver for Windows 7 (32/64)(v6.0.1.5904; 09-03-2009; 60.61M) then click the red download now button to start downloading the driver. After downloading, install the driver that you have downloaded to update the sound driver of your laptop. If prompted for a restart, restart your computer then check your computer for a sound.

If the driver you downloaded will not fix the audio problem, you have to return to it's original operating system (windows vista) of your laptop by reformatting from a clean installation using windows vista installer.

Installation of Windows 7 is not supported by Toshiba for laptops made prior to 2007. Have a nice day.

I shut down my Toshiba Satelite L500 and went to reboot. The Toshiba logo flashes quickly and then goes blank. It is not booting or restarting.


Hi

I believe your computer is corrupted and need to be repair or reformat.

But first solution to run your computer on safe mode if repair the problem. When restarting your computer, just press F8 when booting and it should display some repair menu. Choose safe mode to run your computer on safe mode. Maybe it help you.

If not you need to reformat your computer or repair the operating system.

Good Luck

Want to know the steps to reformat Toshiba - Satellite Pro


Your data - In order to ensure don't copy any infected data backup as few executables as possible. BEFORE restoring your data make sure you have antivirus installed and up to date. Perform a full scan after copying the data back to your lt. Put in the recovery disk and restart your computer. Look for a prompt on the screen to "boot from disk" while it is booting. Press the key it says to press and follow the directions from there. If there isn't a prompt to boot from disk try pressing Alt and F10 while it boots.

How can I reformat my A20m IBM Thinkpad..


Doing a Format on your PC Should Be A Last Resort! Reformatting your Windows computer is usually the absolute last resort and is often done unnecessarily. Before you go through the process of doing a reformat of your hard drive please take a few moments to read through the rest of our website. If you are reformatting to fix problems with your Windows computer it's possible that by using some of the tips on our site, or by downloading or purchasing some of the tools or products that we link to, you might be able to avoid the need to reformat your computer. Because doing a complete reformat of your computer will erase the contents of the hard drive and require you to reinstall all software, reformatting is usually a last resort. Some Computer Manufacturers Make Reformatting Easy Many name-brand PC manufacturers include a restore-disk which makes it easy to reformat your PC and return it to the state it was in on the day you purchased it. Some manufactures supply only a standard Microsoft Windows CD, and some (usually lower-end PC manufacturers) supply neither! If your PC did not come with a restore or reformatting CD, then you will need to take extra steps to format your hard drive and get Windows re-installed. Back Up Your Files Before You Reformat your Windows PC!Because the reformat or restore process erases everything on your computer, it is critical to have a backup of any important files on your computer. You will also need your original software install disks to reinstall any software you have purchased.

Things to do before you reformat your PC hard drive
  • Write down or print out all notes and internet pages because once the format process begins, you will no longer have access to them (or anything else in the PC)
  • As already stated, BACKUP all important files and data! When you reformat your computer everything will be erased!
  • Make sure you have all the CDs and other software. All programs will have to be reinstalled after you format the hard drive. Don't forget about software that came with hardware such as printers, scanners, etc.
  • Write down the brand and information for all the hardware on your computer. Look in the Device Manager and make note of the brand and model of network adaptors, video cards, sound cards, printers, modems, and displays. After reformatting you might need this information to reinstall drivers.

Toshiba Will Not Reinstall Windows


where did you get your copy of vista? is it yours did you borrow it?

lets try to reformat one more time. your recovery partition is gone now so make sure you format the entire disk. when it asks you to confirm erasing formatting etc. don't choose the quick format, if it asks. do it the slow way, less chance of error.
