Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook
They said I had to restore my computer to its original.....They (geek squad) backed up my files. How do I restore them?
Check your main hard drive c:\ the drive will have a folder called toshiba restore or restore open the folder and look for a setup.exe file or a auto .exe file this will restore the computer back to factory settings. The solution above regarding cd's does not exist unless you call toshiba and order the restore disks

You should have everything saved ("backed up") on dvds now. Your next step is to pop in the restore discs that came with the computer unless you have a vista machine that isn't a toshiba or dell because vista machines (like HP) makes you create your own.
pop in your disc, boot to cd, and press next a few times... it will delete everything and get the pc back to the first day you bought it.

This restores the PC to the condition it was in when the Complete Backup was made. If a Complete Backup was never made, this can still be used to restore the PC to its initial status. (Out of the Box condition)
Warning: A Complete restore erases all current files, settings, programs and other data and replaces them with the files, settings, programs and other data contained in the Complete Backup. In other words, it restores your computer to the way it was when you made the Complete Backup. Also, note that any programs installed after the Complete Backup will still need to be reinstalled.
To perform a Complete Restore, follow these steps:
Important: Make sure you have power connected to the PC. If power is lost during a restore, you need to start the process again from the beginning.
Warning: If you have data on drive C that you do not want to lose, stop now and perform a Data Backup.
Note: You will need to perform an additional restart for Windows to apply its changes.

1. Turn on the computer and
hold down the "F11" key once the BIOS prompts appear on the monitor.
on the button labeled "Advanced Options" in the Welcome Screen once the
Recover Manager opens. Choose the "System Recovery" option and click
3. If the "Microsoft System Restore" window appears, select "No"
and click "Next."
4. The Recovery Manager will then prompt you to back up
any important files as the restoration process will delete all data on
the computer's hard drive. If you wish to perform a backup first, select
"Back up your files first," click "Next" and follow the on-screen
instructions. If not, choose the "Recover without backing up your files"
and click the "Next" button. The computer will then begin the
restoration process and restore the HP DV4000 to its original factory
