Hello, here are the steps to resetting your computer.
Reinstall Windows from a Disk

few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F12 key on your
keyboard to access the Boot Menu. (Note: Some Toshiba models may tell you to

this boot up session only.

CD-ROM/DVD drive to highlight it. Press "Enter." Be aware that this
setting is for this session only; it is not a permanent change.

Reinstall from a Recovery Partition
