    what do you mean by restoring it to factory default? do you mean to reformat your laptop and start a fresh environment?

If you have an operating system installer use it and format your laptop first. Then proceed in installing the new os.Download the specific drivers needed for your laptop.Remember that before you reinstall you must first know what these specific drivers are..You can see it from the device manager. Click my computer--->left click----->properties-------->hardware tab---->device manager. Or simply type the model of your laptop and search for its drivers from the net. Another best option is buy a recovery cd from toshiba.

In need of restoring to factory settings, (Toshiba Satellite M45). Held down zero, powered on, no beeps occur. The recovery utility never appears. Not listed in All Programs for Hard Disk Utility nor in...


It appears the recovery partition has been removed from your hard disk. You need to obtain a Recovery CD from Toshiba.
OR
If you have a Windows XP Home installation CD then you can use it to reinstall Windows on your Toshiba and the product installation code will be on the Windows label on the bottom of your laptop.

You can download thedevice drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from theirdownload page. Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get thecorrect drivers.

Ihave a dell dimension 2400 It is windows xp home edition.What cd would I order to restore it back to factory setting. I would appricatae it thank you Karen


Hi. I have a dell optiplex gx240, and I has to do this exact same thing to it.
You can download an iso image from the microsoft windows xp website, it is service pack3. Then just burn the image to a cd, and then take out the cd and put it back in.

It should autolaunch on it's own when you puit it back in.
When it gives you your choices, select repair install, if it offers, otherwise just let it run as normal.
You won't lose any programs, because you are just replacing the operating system to fresh, not the files as well. All your programs should still be there, all the short-cuts, everything.

Then once it's done, eject the disk, and revoot.
Your computer should be good as new, and maybe even a little faster!
