I've found that the way to access the recovery partition on Toshiba's changes very frequently between different models and different years. If you have a partition the best solution would be to boot into Windows and create recovery discs with Toshiba's recovery utility, so if for some reason in the future something happens you have the discs. I believe you can use that same utility within Windows to restore your computer. If for some reason you can't log into normal mode, you can try doing this in safe mode. If Windows doesn't seem to work at all, I will need the model number and I will try to do a little research. Hope this helps!

How to restore a toshiba satellite a135-s2286 notebook without cd?


the f8 function is only to try and remedy boot problems. the recovery option you're getting is to restore if you have already made recovery discs.
if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive you should be able to access it when you boot up. before starting your laptop press and hold 0(zero) key and power on the laptop. once it starts you should get a screen with 3 options then choose option 1 to get back to factory restore.

Your hard drive maybe partitioned with a small partition and the remainder of the hard drive may not be partitioned at all and therefore not accessable until a new partition has been created and formatted.
You may wish to delete the existion and then create one partition of maximum size.
NOTE - backup your data because when you delete the existing partition and create a new partition and format this partition you will lose your data.

System restore factory settings no cd


Toshiba has built in system recovery partition in your hard drive

Make sure to back up important files in your Laptop to usb or portable hard disk before doing this.

Warning: In using System Recovery you files will be deleted, your laptop will be back to its factory settings

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

I can't access information on the hard drive. The data is there.... but there's no folder to open.


If the drive is good, but the partition was lost, or the file was deleted and the trash was emptied, you can attempt a data recovery using a data recovery software. Please note that if your trash was emptied, if any new programs were added or files created, there is the potential the data has been overwritten. As long as the drive has not been touched since the data loss, and the drive is working, there is a good chance of data recovery. There are several software programs range greatly in price. Here are a couple low cost versions that usually work for most situations: Active Partition Recovery= http://www.partition-recovery.com/ ; Stellar - Phoenix= http://www.stellarinfo.com/

I want to downgrade my desktop acer aspire x1800 vista to xp pro everytime i run set-up it always showing me an error could not proceed,.


Most like ly the hard drive has a Vista recovery partition. That partition has got to be deleted. You'll need to open a command prompt and follow the guide very carefully or irreperable damage could occur.

Here’s the trick to delete and remove the EISA recovery or diagnostic partition in Vista. Before proceeding with the deletion action, make sure that at least a set of Recovery Disc Media has been created. Else, you won’t be able to restore your computer to working and factory default condition when any problem on PC requires reinstallation.
  1. Open a command prompt as administrator.
  2. Run Diskpart application by typing Diskpart in the command prompt.
  3. In the “Diskpart” prompt, enter rescan command and press Enter key to re-scan all partitions, volumes and drives available.
  4. Then type in list disk and press Enter key to show all hard disk drive available.
  5. Select the disk that contains the partition you want to remove. Normally, with just 1 hard disk, it will be disk 0. So the command will be:
select disk 0
Finish by Enter key.
  1. Type list partition and press Enter key to show all available and created partition in the disk selected.
  2. Select the partition that wanted to be deleted by using the following command, followed by Enter key:
select partition x
where x is the number of the EISA based recovery partition to be removed and unlocked its space. Be careful with the number of this partition, as wrong number may get data wipes off.
  1. Finally, type in delete partition override and press Enter key.
Once the partition has been deleted, exit from Diskpart, and now users can use the much familiar and much easier Disk Management tool in Windows (diskmgmt.msc) to manipulate the freed unallocated partition. Users can create a new volume (partition) with this space, or simply merge it to existing partition by extending the size of the existing partition.
