Use the "Function" for "FN" key together with the "Num Lock" key to turn them off.

How do you convert a toshiba laptop back to its factory settings. I know the windows program is on the hard drive but I don't know how to access it.


Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partion on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.


To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.


ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE POWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURING THIS PROCESS.



1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.


Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.


2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.


3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.


4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.


5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.


6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.


7) Click Next to Start recovery.


I hope you find this step by step solution helpful for you. If so, rate it up.

Laptop button not working


Press alt+ctrl+fn
Most of the time this will work.

1. Try pressing both the left and right CTRL keys at the same time and
see if that releases CTRL.

2. Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel / Accessibility Options /
Keyboard Options.
Turn off CTRL lock if it's on.
If that solves it and to avoid future problems, press "Settings"
Turn off "Press modifier key twice to lock".
Turn on "Turn sticky keys off if 2 keys are pressed at once".
Or turn off "Use shortcut"

3. Clean your keyboard.

If not working, comment back. All the best.

Hi caza0121, try to power drain your pc.

Turn off the laptop, remove the cables on it, then remove the battery

Push and hold the power button for 5 seconds, then replug the cable and reinsert the battery and turn on the pc.

My friend has a Toshiba A135-S2346 laptop and the screen has gone out. It sounds like it's still loading and what not, but when I try to hook it up to a desktop monitor, I still get nothing.


Hi,
You have hooked up the external desktop monitor BEFORE booting up the laptop I'm assuming? That needs to be done first of all.
Secondly - find a button on your laptop that looks like two small screens or boxes that look like screens. They are probably drawn on top of your number keys (123456789 etc). You should have a button down in your left corner of your keyboard called FN? Hold in that button and press the number key that has the icon of those "screens" or "boxes". This will toggle turning on an external display vs. the internal display or both depending on how many times you press the number key while holding down the FN key.
Please let us know how this works out.
Thanks,
Kaj

You know how every button has a second funtion...well, i canèt figure out how to get the first function back (question mark..ect..) it keeps typing És...itès frustrating..it happens often,...


If this is a laptop keyboard, there is usually a "function lock" key or a numlock key. Press the "Fn" key and look for one that says "Num Lock" or an icon on one of the keys that looks like the number keypad from a full size keyboard. Or find a key that says "Fn Lock" or something of the sorts.

Hope this helps!
