I need to reset my laptop


Hello, here are the steps to resetting your computer.



Reinstall Windows from a Disk



1 Turn on your Toshiba Satellite. Insert your recovery disk or the original Windows operating system DVD

into the Satellite's CD/DVD drive. Turn off the computer.



2 Turn on the Toshiba Satellite. In the first few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F12 key on your keyboard to access the Boot Menu. (Note: Some Toshiba models may tell you to press "C" to boot

from the CD-ROM). The screen will display boot for this boot up session only.



3 Use the arrow keys to navigate. Select the CD-ROM/DVD drive to highlight it. Press "Enter." Be aware that this setting is for this session only; it is not a permanent change.



4 Allow the computer to start up. Follow the onscreen instructions for reinstalling the operating system from the disk.



Reinstall from a Recovery Partition



1 Boot up the Toshiba Satellite. In the first few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F8 key. This will begin the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.



2 Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate the menu. Move the keys to select "Repair Your Computer." Press "Enter."



3 Select your language and keyboard; click "Next."



4 Select your Windows user name from the drop-down menu. Enter your password if required. Click "OK." This will begin the "System Recovery Options" menu.



5 Select the Toshiba Recovery Wizard and follow the onscreen instructions. The Toshiba Recovery Wizard will delete all existing data on the hard drive and reinstall Windows.



Hope this helps!

My Toshiba Satellite Pro, when I turn my laptop the screen comes on with Password= I forgot my password, how do I reset it?


The first question is - did you create a password recovery disk? If not you will have to re-install the operating system.
Your BIOS default will be set to start up from teh DVD drvie - insert the recovery disk and it will re-install the operating system.

Formatting problems.


Remove any 3.5" diskette from the diskette-drive in the computer.

Insert the Recovery Disk into the CD-ROM device.

Restart your computer, and *FORCE* it to *FIRST* try to "boot" from the CD-ROM drive, rather than trying to boot from the 3.5" diskette or from your C: drive.

Getting grey screen with wrong machine


Create a bootable DOS disk and place it in the drive. Then restart the system. that should get you to a DOS prompt. At the DOS prompt you can tell it to change to the D: drive. You can tell if you have done this right because you will see a D: as part of the prompt. Insert recovery disk 1. If it does not start reading the disk type DIR at the D drive prompt. That will list all the files on the D: Drive. There should be one called autostart or install. Type in the name of the file including the extension. Hit enter.

A second approach is to hit F12 during start up and drop down to the second item and hit enter. That started the Toshiba recovery disk for me once when it would not read it automatically at start up.

Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 says no operating system found. tried to insert restore disc but it runs for about 20 seconds then turns off.


it sounds like your HDD has suffered a critical error. Go here and download this torrent. This will need to be burned to a disk. now it comes with FreeDos installed. Put the disk in the drive and bootup. use option 5 to repair your HDD. after this finishes try booting your system up.
