    Toshiba no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key


    try booting from a Windows installation disc. Choose the repair installation option. If this does not work, you may have to erase (format) your whole drive and start over again by reinstalling Windows from scratch.

    Before erasing the drive, you might want to pull it out, put as a second drive in another working computer or inside a USB hard drive case and download all of your information from it. Otherwise you may have a mess on your hands with lost data/documents/photos.

    I need to reset my laptop


    Kevin,

    If you want to restore it to factory condition, you will need your recovery discs which came with it. If you do not have them, Lenovo has a tool to create your own recovery discs you can download from their website. If your laptop is shot and you don't have another PC handy with a CD/DVD burner, you may just want to buy the recovery discs from them.

    I want to reset it


    @lslchrisorei

    Toshiba laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you don't need to use a disc to restore it to factory default (if that's what you mean by "I want to reset it". The hotkey for the recovery is the 0 key (don't use the key on the numpad). To activate it, you need to turn the computer off, then you need to hold the 0 key then turn the computer back ON. If you hear a continuous beep, you can let go of the key and It will then say "Windows is loading files" and will proceed with System Recovery. If this doesn't work, that means that this computer doesn't have the hidden partition for you to restore the unit to factory defaults (either it's faulty or it's not there) and you need to order the recovery discs from Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777 (for US) and for Canada, it's 1-800-663-0378.

    If you're still under warranty, they'll give it to you for free.

    Cheers

    I know my laptop has a recovery partition on it, its an L355-S7907 the partition is not the 0 key, Ive done it before but seem to have forgotten what the partition for this particular one is even though...


    The toshiba software included with laptop will give you the protocol for performing a recovery operation.. Look in the Toshiba folder in hard drive . You will have a choice of a repair option or restore to factory defaults which erases everything you may have done and returns unit to condition it was in brand new out of the box.

    try this
    Hard Disk Drive Recovery using the recovery partition
    You have the options of recovering your system using the Hard
    Drive Recovery partition
    to the factory-set default, or recovering
    just your C: drive and leaving other partitions (for example, a D:
    drive) intact, or changing the size of your C: drive and then
    recovering it.
    To recover your hard disk drive using the utilities stored on your
    computer's HDD:
    1 Make sure the computer is turned off.
    2 Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard while
    powering on the computer. When the computer powers on, the
    Toshiba Recovery Wizard screen displays.

    I want to recover my computer to factory settings


    As soon as you press the power button on your notebook, Keep tapping F8 repeatedly. Another screen should pop up with a list of commands (safe mode / start up repair etc) Near the bottom of the list you should see an option to ReInstall windows / Reset to factory Default. Select which one you prefer and follow the simple instructions.

    Hope this helps and please rate thanks.
