Information:
Many Toshiba laptops come with the factory software recovery image stored in a special (hidden) area on the hard disk. From this special hidden system recovery image, you can restore your computer to its factory-fresh software condition by following these steps:
  1. Make sure the computer is turned off ("Shut-down" from the Windows Start menu)
  2. Remove any peripherals such an external mouse, keyboard, monitor, USB flash drive etc.
  3. Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in and working.
  4. Press and hold down the 0 (zero) key on the keyboard while powering on the computer. Release it when the recovery warning screen appears.
  5. If the recovery process offers a choice of Operating Systems, select the appropriate one for you.
  6. A warning screen appears, stating that when the recovery is executed all data will be deleted and rewritten.
  7. Click Yes to continue.
  8. When the Toshiba Recovery Wizard opens select "Recovery of Factory Software" or the appropriate option for your needs.
  9. Continue to follow the directions restarting as necessary.
Please note that the process may vary slightly from machine to machine, that you may be asked to insert disks (multi-disk packages) and that the process may take one to two hours to complete. The recovery process will require you to restart your computer several times.
As you use the recovery process you will have several options. One of these may be to create a custom size partition. Follow the directions on screen for this and other options as prompted. When in doubt, it's usually best to accept the default, or pre-selected option.

No, but you could try the chkdsk command: - make sure you're on the C: drive or the drive which carries windows. Enter CHKDSK (Checkdisk) it will check your HDD for errors even try to repair them. Because it looks like you may have a disk failure.

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5875; Recovery Error 10-fc12-045d HELP!!


no it is not fried. you just need to find a vista disk and use that instead of the recovery disks. Once you reinstall Vista you should be able to go online for the Toshiba drivers. Make sure you have the windows Vista Key which should be located under the laptop. the vista software install will ask for it.

My disk drive is not loading on my Toshiba laptop


i am guessing you have windows xp installed
in your control panel go to admin tools computer management.Open disk management right click rescan all drives it should but your drive back. the computer think you hard disk is a removable drive.
if this did not fix then you have a regestery problem which is very hard to repair because messing around it there can cause windows to stop totally if the wrong files are changed.

I need to tuneup my laptop and I don't have my configuration disk for my Toshiba Satellite 265. What do I do?


There are a couple of easy things you can do to tune it up. You can do a disk cleanup and a disk defrag.

To cleanup (assuming you're on XP):
Start-->All Programs-->Accesories-->System Tools-->Disk Cleanup

Select the drive you want to clean. It will tell you everything you can get rid of and all you have to do is select it and click ok.

To defrag (assuming you're on XP):
Start-->All Programs-->Accesories-->System Tools-->Disk Defragmenter

Select the drive you want to defrag and click analyze. It will tell you if you need to defrag it. This usually takes an hour or more to do, depending on size of drive and computer performance.

Furthermore:
Use Add/Remove Programs from Control Panel to remove any unwanted programs on your computer.

Well the disk you connect is blank hence the black screen you get. You need to install the Operating System (Windows, Linux) etc. first and a Windows CD/DVD will serve as a system disk. Put the CD or DVD in and start the computer. You will see a message "Hit any key to boot from the CD", hit a key and you will get into Windows configuration.
If you dont have a Windows CD or the original CD that came with the laptop, there is nothing much you can do. You will need to purchase one and go from there (unless you decide to switch to Linux, then you can download it for free and burn on a CD - Take a look at Ubuntu, it is a very "Windows user friendly" Linux distribution...

I do not know how to use my product recovery disk on my toshiba satellite


Insert the Toshiba Product Recovery CD and turn on the system while holding down the C key. This will allow the system to boot from the CD. Select either a Complete Recovery (this recreates all the partitions and formats each one, this may reboot the system several times depending on the size of the HDD and the number of partitions) or Standard Recovery (this just formats drive C:). This will then restore the operating system as shipped from the factory. A Toshiba Tools and Utilities CD is supplied for reinstallation of drivers and utilities without reinstalling the complete operating system.
