If you want it free, you may have to download a copy of windows from a torrent site like isoHUNT, then download your drivers from toshiba.
If you download the same version of windows that was installed, you may be able to use the COA windows key on your laptop

I get the error message when i try to create media recovery for my laptop toshiba l505. the error messsage is "no HDD recovery area", "the toshiba recovery media creator cannot be...


I am glad to HELP YOU!


When you start to create the RECOVERY MEDIA your machine is creating a virtual file [a temporary one...] that includes all parameters and drivers and system files of your operating system; once the temporary file is done the recovery files are written on the indicated media [a hard drive or a DVD/CD].
Because of the huge size of the file [the temporary one] you need enough room for the virtual file to be created.
So you got your error message just because you DON'T HAVE ENOUGH ROOM on your hard drive.
My suggestion is: find an external drive [a USB attached hard drive] and make the RECOVERY MEDIA there. Meanwhile try to clean up a little bit your hard drive by using that application in Windows called DISK CLEANER [START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > DISK TOOLS > DISK CLEANER].

My best regards!

Need to wipe out laptop how do i get the recovery downloads


Is your computer still working? You need to create the restore disks using TOSHIBA, TOSHIBA Recovery Disk Creator.

You may have to contact TOSHIBA if you want to purchase restore disk to put it back to the factory condition.

RecoveryDisk Creator does not offer any disk selections to create


To access the recovery partition you need to boot up on a DVD with a partition manager on it, then set the hidden partition as "ACTIVE" and un-Active, the existing partition, then remove DVD and reboot, then the laptop will boot from the recovery partition and should autorun start the recovery procedure.

Sound drivers for Xp sp2


For specific models with different chipset drivers, you can get the sound driver & pretty much everything else on support.toshiba.com. If you can't connect to the Internet, "Tecra, Portege", & sometimes "Qosmio" models came with a built-in HDD recovery, meaning you need to create your recovery disk by running the "Recovery Disk Creator". An application to create your recovery disk. A shortcut is created on the desktop by default, if you cannot find it there, try looking at "C:\Program Files\Toshiba\Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator" & run the "exe" file, it should give you a menu to create one. After creating the disk, you can use that disc to install the drivers for all Toshiba pre-installed devices/softwares on that machine. For Satellite models, the disc should come with the laptop when you boughtt it. When you have the disc, just insert it inside of windows, it will give you options to install the driver & software for a specific toshiba device.


Hope this helps.

Recovery disk


Thank you so much for your reply. I wish I knew more about computers, and I hope you understand why I need your help. I am a 24 hour caregiver and am not paid for my work, so any help I can get is appreciated very much. I think all I need is to find out how to contact Toshiba. Their 800 number and website is not user friendly if you know what I mean. I only need a new recovery disk and am willing to drive thousands of miles if that's what it takes to find one. So if you or anyone could please point me in the right direction I would be on my way to the first step in solving this problem with my laptop. It's not for me it's for my daughter Shelly. She has Williams Syndrome and is desperate for her laptop to be fixed with any kind of operating system.
Thanks,
Mark
