Sorry, if you onkly have C: now and no D: then you have destroyed the data on D: by re-partitioning it.

How do you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7


Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
  1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
CAUTION:
Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Installing Drivers and Applications
The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
To reinstall drivers and applications:
  1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.

  2. Click "Next".
  3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
  4. Click "Install".
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

Hope this helps.

I want to restore my acer laptop with windows vista to factory settings


Most computers come with either a recovery CD/DVD or a recovery partition that is hidden on the computer. This is true for most HP and Dell machines now these days.
If you have one of these, you can access the recovery from within Windows or during startup.
You can also press the F10 key multiple times during bootup to get access to the recovery console in case Windows is not loading properly.
Note that all of your data will be lost on the hard drive. Using a recovery CD is not the same as repairing XP. When you repair windows XP, all of the system files are replaced with the original ones, but your data and application remain intact.

How i can format wyse x90l


You can not format the Windows Drive (referred to as windows partition) while the windows is running.
CAUTION: FORMATTING A PARTITION OR HARD DRIVE WILL RESULT IN ALL THE DATA BEING LOST.
But you can format any other drive or partition, to format a drive or partition other than the windows', open My computer right click on the drive icon and click format, press all the OKs and your drive will be formatted in a while.



To format whole hard drive, even the windows partition,
CAUTION: FORMATTING A DRIVE WILL RESULT IN LOOSING ALL THE DATA AND THE WINDOWS AS WELL.

Now back to business, to do a complete format you need a bootable cd, If you have your recovery disk or even a bootalble windows disk you can format everything.
Lets assume that you have a windows bootable cd, insert the disk while the laptop is starting (make sure that the computer boots up with the cd), let the setup load its files, then follow the instruction until you reach to the point when you can see your hard drives and its asking for formatting press F to format the drive which is highlighted.
Thats it.
Please feel free to ask me any further.

Reboot to factory settings w/o startup disk Satelite A75-S1253


Hi there,
If it has a recovery partition you should be able to access it by pressing the 0 key while powering the laptop on. Give that a shot and see if the Toshiba recovery wizard comes up.

Put your Windows disc in the disc drive.
Tap F12 when the computer is starting up.
Select load from disc.
Install Windows.
It seems to be the only solution to your problem.
Hopefully, you made a partition and saved your files onto there, or onto an external hard drive to prevent data loss.
