Hello,

to confirm if your laptop has a recovery or not, click start menu and click my computer. Under computer, check if you will see a recovery driver. If you see the recovery drive, then it means your computer has a recovery.

To run the recovery, click start > all programs > Toshiba Back-up and Recovery. Follow the instruction on the recovery page in order to proceed for the recovery.

Good luck.

When the computer is starting you can press F8 or F11 to enter a menu that has the restore function listed. IT will do all the work and install from the hidden partition.

I need a recovery disk for a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 model# PSLB8U04X02F I had to replace the hard drive but i have no recovery disk. Can you please help me find one thats free I have 4 kids need...


  • Toshiba provides, provided the hdd is not damaged, a restore partition that the windows recovery system can use to completely restore the system. That or using the recovery disk creation utility.

  • Paid Solution: Order a recovery disk from Toshiba (charges for delivery of recovery media in the US is $29.95 for DVD media or $39.95 for USB sticks.)-> Repair Parts Support Toshiba

  • Free Solution: Find someone to install for you the OS of your choice, and get all you need, (drivers, apps, etc), from Toshiba's site -> Search

    Whatever the solution, once done with full installation, (drivers,apps, etc), use the recovery disk creation utility for future use.

My A305-S6857 freeze every time when I tried to login. I cannot access to my desktop.


Try doing a startup repair by pressing F8 repeatedly on startup. On the options menu, choose 'repair my computer'. If this isn't successful you can try running your antivirus software in safe mode to check for any infections. Press F8 as before and choose safe mode. If this works, you can also check your event viewer to see if there are any system errors recorded: control panel>system and security>administrative tools>event viewer. Expand the critical and error menus under 'summary of administrative events' You can double click on an event for further detail and the event ID which may help you troubleshoot the problem further.

How do you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7


Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
  1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:

Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
CAUTION:
Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Installing Drivers and Applications
The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
To reinstall drivers and applications:
  1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.

    htd7c02140000r0136067.jpg

  2. Click "Next".
  3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
  4. Click "Install".
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

Hope this helps.

My satellite a505 laptop has windows 7 on it and was wondering if i was supposed to get a disk with it so i could reinstall it


Uusally, now a days you do not get a disk with a new computer. Instead, if you go into the toshiba folder under programs on the start menu they will have a utility to make recovery disks. These disks can then be used to completely redo your computer should you need to.

Hope this helps.

Application error when running recovery disk


hi

Did you create any partitions on the HDD?
Obviously the HDD or some partitions on the HDD are corrupt.
In my opinion, you should firstly try to format the whole HDD and delete also whole partitions.
Then insert the recovery CD and try to install the Toshiba image
