Question about Toshiba Tecra M2-S730 Notebook
Hi and welcome to FixYa!
The great thing about the newer computers, including Toshiba, is that they usually have a hidden factory restore setting that you can do manually without disks or recovery CD's anymore!
You can go with the disc if you like, but they are not an absolute necessity.
First thing is first. You will lose all data on the computer, so please back up your files and pics. They will not be able to be recovered after this process is done.
Turn off your computer by holding down power button for 10 seconds.
Press and hold zero key and press your power button one time.
(do not let go of zero key)
If done correctly, you will hear a series of beeping. When you hear this, release the zero key.
You will be asked with a warning screen if you wish to continue. Select yes.
Select recovery for factory default and hit next.
Then select recover out of state box.
Then, select next.
You will continue on, click next and this should start recovery!
You may have to try a couple of times. The first time you attempt this, it may be tricky, but you will be a pro in no time! Please rate this solution if it was helpful to you!
Thank you for choosing FixYa for your computer needs today!
