How do you convert a toshiba laptop back to its factory settings. I know the windows program is on the hard drive but I don't know how to access it.


Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partion on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.


To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.


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.


I hope you find this step by step solution helpful for you. If so, rate it up.

How do I replace ac plug in on a toshiba laptop?


You can buy any standard "universal AC/DC adapter". They will come with several different tips to fit your laptop. I bought this one for my Toshiba Satellite series and it works well:
LINK HERE. It is available in store and online at best buy.

There is also a cheaper one available from Walmart HERE. It is from Kingston and has a 1 year warranty so it should work well and have you covered.

Let me know what area you live in and I can track one down close. I have also bought one from Ebay that was cheap and worked without a problem. Let me know and I can look one up(ebay tends to be cheapest with power adapters in the 10-35$ range.

Toshiba replacement power cable


Sounds like you bought a generic replacement item. The laptop has circuitry to detect which adaptor is connected to it. If it detects that the adaptor is not capable of charging and operating at the same time, it will act accordingly. The adaptor has a power rating in watts. That number must be equal to the original or greater to work properly.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

It has only been 2 and a half months sinse i bought my toshiba equium A300D series laptop. Once i have fully charged my laptop i only have a hour to use until it needs charging again. I never had this...


this happens to every laptop after a while, although after only 2 months it should be ok, you may need to send it back under guarantee, but remember you will have more things running now then when you first had it, using more processor power and also any usb peripherals youve added also shorten battery life.

Power off the system, then power it back on and see if you can get to the desktop. If you can, then go to the screen saver settings and uncheck the "On resume, password protect" check box.

If you cannot boot into windows, then power off again, the power on and tap F8 to get the Windows Startup menu, select SAFE MODE and see if you get a login prompt, if you do select the username ADMIN with a blank password and see if you can get to Windows. If you do, go to control panel, user Accounts and remove the password from the user account.

If none of that works, then here is a last ditch alternative.

My laptop


If you have an operating system installer use it and format your laptop first. Then proceed in installing the new os.Download the specific drivers needed for your laptop.Remember that before you reinstall you must first know what these specific drivers are..You can see it from the device manager. Click my computer--->left click----->properties-------->hardware tab---->device manager. Or simply type the model of your laptop and search for its drivers from the net. Another best option is buy a recovery cd from toshiba.

I am trying to connect my toshiba laptop to my philips tv by vga but i do not know what settings to put my laptop on


Hi,

Assuming that you have hooked the cables right, you need to press the key combination Fn + F? to activate the external video output of the Toshiba laptop. The "?" would depend on the exact model of your Toshiba. Additionally, there would be a blue lettered indicator on one of the top keys of keyboard indicating a monitor.

Incidentally, it might be worth mentioning that most TV can not operate on too high a setting of the Resolution of your Display Properties and therefore would require that the laptop's Screen Resolution be lowered down when used in conjunction with an external display device such as a monitor. At other times, the Screen refresh Rates would need to be lowered down also.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
