Hi,

The only way to restore without purchasing a Windows 7 disks is to perform the 0 key restore. Try it again using the following proceedure>>>>

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.


If this does not work you may have to purchase a Windows 7 disk.


Good luck.

Sounds maybe like the hard disk drive has become corrupt. Maybe try to reinstall windows if you have the discs. However, if you don't and cannot boot to windows successfully you may have to check with the manufacturer, Toshiba in this case, to see if they can be purchased or sent to you for free. If the hard disk drive is found to not be format-able or the discs don't work for reinstalling windows, then a new hard disk drive is indicated.

You may also try to restore the windows using a backup copy that was made before. However, if you were not backing up your windows image on a regular basis, this may prove to be futile.

Windows has been corrupted by a virus and you must reinstall it.
Press and hold "0" (zero) key on your keyboard and then depress the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility Screen will appear, presenting 3 options, just choose Restore Original Factory Image.

3- go to startup tab.
4- disable some installed software (like yahoo messenger or ID Manager etc) in start up but be careful not to disable windows applications.

I have a Toshiba Satellite running Vista and am having all kinds of trouble lately. I'm getting blue screens, trouble shutting down, 'Not Responding', etc errors. I use this laptop for both personal and...


as long as you are not having a hardware issue, windows 7 fixes alot of vistanogo's problems. i would recommend windows 7 professional for mixed home office use and 64 bit. if you are having alot of blue screens, i recommend trying to reload windows to factory settings. the 0(zero) key is the one you press and hold with eht battery out and connected to dc power to get to the restore partition. follow the prompts and reinstall. if this works reinstall all the updates for vista up to and to include service pack 2. then purchase windows 7(do not recommend pirated software because of the risk of viruses and errors). install the update to windows 7 option and repost on your findings.
