Are you just looking to completely erase your hard drive (delete all files from your computer)? If so, try Active@ Kill Disk - it's free. Use directions for Booting from a Floppy Disk if your computer has a Floppy drive or Booting from a CD if you'd rather use a CD.

Hope this helps! : )

    I see. So you're actually looking to take your toshiba back to the orginial configuration with the disk you got with the laptop? It that correct?

  • Jane Doe May 28, 2008

    Have you tried booting in to the CD? Meaning, you stick the CD in the drive, reboot your system and let the system boot in to the CD instead of Windows?

  • Jane Doe May 29, 2008

    It sounds like you need to change the boot priority so that you can boot from the CD. Turn off your computer. Turn it back on and start pressing the F2 key repeatedly to enter BIOS setup. If F2 doesn't work, try the esc key. Look for a setting called "boot priority". Change it so that the CD-ROM drive is the first in the list. Once you change the settings and save it (there will be instructions on how to change and save the settings at the bottom of the screen), reboot and follow the instructions on the screen to boot in to the cd.

    Not a problem, and good luck. : )

I am looking to reformat the hard drive (ie restore to factory settings) of a toshiba equium a60 laptop. However, I have no manufacturer disks so wondering if it is possible?

I've had a look at the the Toshiba website:-

It gives the impression that this is quite an old system. That being the case, re-installing windows requires re-formatting the HDD.

But keep the URL above handy, it may help with drivers you may need after the re-installationt.

I need to completly rset my toshiba equium p200 i have no disc

If you want to restore back then you should have a recovery partition to check it press F10 when you turn on the system. If you have the recovery partition it will take you in and from there you can select any recovery option. (destructive or non destructive)
If there is no recovery partition on the system then you need a disc which you can easily get by calling toshiba it will cost u around $12.

Factory reset

This would need to be completed with a disc that came with your machine that contains an compressed DVD or CD of your computer with all software that was installed (if it was custom built) or by using an operating system full install disc (if the computer was bought from a store off the shelf.) Best of luck!
