The only way that you can do a factory reset is to use your system restore disk to reload your operating system. Either you received these disk when you purchased your system or the files where stored on a separate partition on your system and you needed to create them...
To wipe and reload you don't actually have to log in. You just need to set first boot option to CD, insert the XP disk, and reboot the computer. All the steps from there on out are explained on the screen.
Thanks - that makes more sense. Sounds like a hardware problem. Most likely suspect, the hard drive. You'll want to get some diagnostic tests to run. I'd recommend just booting the CD to a command prompt and running some tests. You can search for some bootable cd's for this purpose that will make your like a bit easier www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd.
That is normal, you need to reinstall drivers after installing the system from a generic Windows CD. Here is toshiba download page Click and follow instructions to download drivers. You may need also to reinstall network, video, modem, and pad drivers if you want to achieve full functionality.
On a laptop there is no factory setting reset option (unless you mean bios reset ). To get the laptop back to the initial 'as new' condition you need to re-install the system using the recovery disk on startup. Put recovery cd 1 inside laptop cd drive and restart the computer. Follow instructions for complete restore. If you do complete restore you can lose all your data.
