Backup disc problem

This has been an ongoing problem. It was a technical support person at Toshiba who tried to walk me thru what I needed to do to fix the problem who told me to come to this site and down load a disc creator file. I am totally computer illiterate!! When she tried to walk me thru tje steps to fix it, I was totally frustrated because she ended up with instructions that did not match what I have on my computer, like click the "tools" tab, and I have NO "tools" tab. The last tech that I talked to last night gave me the name of a Toshiba dealer to take it to, the closest one is 60 miles away, a big expense since the cost of the repair is on top of the cost of gas for 240 miles.

Go to Symantec.com and download Norton Ghost. That program will backup your whole hard drive for you onto Cds.

The disk creator program isn't used anymore since Windows XP was released.

try to use external dvd drive, then just load the recovery disc that are included when you purchased your laptop, but be careful coz once you have just load the recovery disc it might restore the whole system from the beginning so their is a chance that all of your files will be deleted. My suggestion is to ask help first to technical person to backup your files then after backup load the recovery disc. Just a thought hope it helps thanks.

I need to reset my toshiba L300D-13R to factory settings but am unsuire of how to do this. please could you help


you'll have to use original recovery discs.
1. Insert the disc into the drive.
2. Restart the laptop and press F12 key when you see the Toshiba logo on the screen.
3. Select CD/DVD drive from the boot menu.
4. Press OK and wait until the laptop boot from the CD.
5. Select "Recovery to factory defaults" and press OK. It will take some time to reimage the hard dive.

Warning! This process will erase all personal data from the hard drive. Backup all personal data (pictures, music, documents, etc...) before you reset to factory settings.

or you can go to ezrestorepc.com for all your recovery needs including the toshiba ones.

hope this helps please rate!

You have a serious problem. There may be another solution, but I recommend reinstalling Windows. You will need to backup everything on the hard drive, which will require a second computer and some way to connect your current drive to it. Once that's done, get an install disc for the version of Windows you want to install. Power up the computer as much as you can, put the disc in the drive, then restart. An option to boot from the CD should appear. If it doesn't you need to change some BIOS settings first. That involves pressing whatever key is listed at the very first startup screen, and scrolling through the text-only menus to change the preferred order of the boot devices. Set the CD drive to the first spot in the list. Once you can boot from the disc, the installer will take care of the rest and can walk you through the installation. Good luck!

What do I need to back up My toshiba satellite L455. Computers don't come with cd's or disks any more with purchase?


Since you have Win 7 Home Premium, start with making a System Repair disc. You just need a blank CD-R or DVD+/-R (DL is OK, but not an R/W disc). Click Start > Maintenance > Create a System Repair Disc. (This will save you from needing a OS install disc in the future)

Next you can use the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator to create a set of backup discs for the initial configuration of the computer. (Use DVDs for this to avoid needing lots of discs.) This lets you make one copy of the Media - no chance to update for new drivers or any other information.

You can save your files with the Backup and Restore (in the same Maintenance files as the System Repair disc). With Home Premium this only works with an locally attached external hard drive.

If you need a complete backup after this, you will need third party software. Some external drives come with the software. Norton Ghost, Paragon Backup and Recovery, and Acronis True Image will all do a full backup to CD, DVD or external drive; there are others.Most of these will make incremental updates as well. There are a few free packages but those don't have the features of the above (like recovering just one file if needed).

I hope this helps.

Was watching tv, al of asudden something popped


This could be almost anything. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4916941-diagnose_repair_projection_tv_high which explains the process for finding the problem, walking a non technical person through it and listing places to get parts at a good price. If this tip does not solve the problem it has a link to another tip which explores more problems your set could have. Good luck. Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

Lost Cd


Actually, if you're using XP you should not need the disc at all to shoot & download images. If you're looking for software so you can crop & that sort of thing, I recommend googles Picasa program, its free. To download images without the disc simply connect the camera like you have in the past and XP will find the device & walk you thru downloading images, usually. If not, click on "my computer" and you should find your camera/device listed there. Personally, I use a card reader and take my memory card out and download the images using the reader.
