Insert the Toshiba Product Recovery CD and turn on the system while holding down the C key. This will allow the system to boot from the CD. Select either a Complete Recovery (this recreates all the partitions and formats each one, this may reboot the system several times depending on the size of the HDD and the number of partitions) or Standard Recovery (this just formats drive C:). This will then restore the operating system as shipped from the factory. A Toshiba Tools and Utilities CD is supplied for reinstallation of drivers and utilities without reinstalling the complete operating system.

I´ve a toshiba Satellite a215. How can I get the recovery disks?


As far as many of us know, you has to buy the recovery cd, but, instead of going to all the trouble, since you might has to either call or contact them via e-mil.

Since you already clean the system, why not go to the site and download all the drivers for your specific system, is very simple, and you get to load just the programs you need.

Drivers are a must, here is the direct link, choose download then choose your system > system model>"GO"

the next page would be all of your drivers, you can use your other system or a friend, put then on a flash drive or burn into cd.

Before you do any driver install, you should make sure you are connected to the internet, and do the windows update, as there should be new drivers for your system.

You should also do an "intel INF" update if not provided at the toshiba site, use google and downloaded it, make sure it applies to your system.

After you done the inf update and windows update, now you install all of the drivers and utilities that are available to you at the site.

sorry can't be of more help, below is the link to the site

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5875; Recovery Error 10-fc12-045d HELP!!


no it is not fried. you just need to find a vista disk and use that instead of the recovery disks. Once you reinstall Vista you should be able to go online for the Toshiba drivers. Make sure you have the windows Vista Key which should be located under the laptop. the vista software install will ask for it.

I have a satellite U300 toshiba computer and i'm on the boot menu


Hi,
If your just wanting to boot into Windows then choose 1. HDD Toshiba.
If your wanting to reinstall the operating system with your recovery disks then you will need disk 1 in the CD drive and when the menu comes up choose 3. CD/DVD.



Regards.

Restore factory settings


Follow this link here.
Look in section 3-9 , it will walk you through the process.
If you dont have the recovery partition and you havent already created a recovery disk you will need to contact Toshiba to get them.
Make sure you back up ALL your data before doing this as it will be overwritten.
