Hi,

Toshiba laptops have what we call the recovery partition. To access that;

  1. Turn the laptop off.
  2. Press and hold letter C on the keyboard.
  3. While holding the letter C, press the power button.
  4. Keep holding the letter C button until you see "Windows is loading files".
If ever the recovery partition is not accessible, you need to contact Toshiba and ask for a recovery disc.

Thank you for visiting FixYa!

How to get my laptop reset to the original factory settings?


Go to the laptop maker's web site and look for a restore CD.
If you don't find one there, send them an email and explain your problem.
A Google search with the laptop make and model and the words "restore CD" might work.
Last resort is format the hard drive and re-install the Operating system.
Most laptops do not come with an OS cd, but the license key is on the bottom.
Here is a link to various Windows operating systems you can use with your CD key.
Download the appropriate Windows 7 .ISO file which includes Service Pack 1
(Note: must match what your product key version is for)

Toshiba satelite l655 wont boot windows or safe mode


The hard drive has failed, or windows has corrupted files. If you made a backup cd installation disc that would be the next step to try and load windows, if no change! the hardware needs to be tested for possible replacement.

What if my toshiba requires a password?


Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
If you have an operating system like XP, Vista or window 7. we can reinstall OS of the laptop. If you dont have one you can call your manufacturer to get or purchase one. Here is an instruction on how to install window 7
Insert the recovery disk into the CD/DVD drive.
2 Click "Start" and then click the arrow pointing to the right. Click "Restart" from the fly-out menu to reboot the computer.
3 Press any key, when prompted, to boot from CD during the Windows 7 start-up process.
4 If no prompt appears, press the "F8" key to force the computer to boot from the CD.
5 Make a selection from the "Language" preference list and click "Next" at the bottom right of the screen.
6 Click the "Install Now" option to start the installation.
7 Select the "Custom" installation option.
8 Delete any partitions on the hard drive. Toshiba laptops are shipped with only one partition, the C: drive. To delete a partition, select the partition and then click the "Delete" option.
9 Select the C: drive and click "Next". The Windows 7 operating system will begin the installation process by first formatting the drive, and then copying files to the drive.
10 Select the "Time Zone" preferences, and complete the remaining preference forms. Click "Next." The installation may take a while. Allow the installation to complete. The computer will boot up into Windows once the machine has been fully restored to factory settings.

Here's How:
  1. Download Free Easy CD DVD Burner and follow the on-screen directions to install the software.
    Note: Free Easy CD DVD Burner is completely free and fully functional. However, there are some accompanying programs that it asks you to install - feel free to decline those if you're not interested. Free Easy CD DVD Burner supports Windows 7, Vista, XP, and 2000.
  2. Insert a blank CD or DVD in your drive.
  3. Open the Free Easy CD DVD Burner program.
  4. Click on the Copy CD/DVD button on the tool bar at the top of the program window.
  5. Under the Action menu on the left, click the Burn an image file link.
  6. When the Select the image file that you want to burn window opens, locate and select the ISO file you wish to burn to the empty disc and then click Open.
  7. A dialog box will appear asking "Do you want to burn [your chosen ISO file]?".
    Click OK to confirm.
    The burning process will automatically begin. The time it takes to burn will depend on the size of the ISO file and the speed of both your PC and your CD or DVD burner.
  8. When the burning is complete, the CD or DVD will automatically eject from the drive. You can remove the disc and close Free Easy CD DVD Burner.
  9. If you view the contents of the disc, you might notice many files and folders. So what happened to the ISO file? Remember that the ISO file is just an image of what should be on the CD or DVD. That ISO file contained the information for all of the files you see on the disc.
Tips:
  1. You must have a CD or DVD burner to write ISO files to CDs or DVDs. You will not be able to burn ISO files if you only have a standard CD or DVD drive.
  2. Many ISO files, like some memory testing programs and password recovery tools, are intended to be booted from after they are burned.

I have a toshiba tecra m3.i tried to install windows xp media center edition????with no joy! it keeps saying install disk 2 when i install disk 2 nothing happens , i have windows on the laptop but nothing...


First you have to know if that Windows XP Media Center is compatible with your laptop, it should be properly installed to avoid errors.

Second if you don't have drivers, you have to access the internet so you don't have any choice but to use another computer to download all the drivers for your laptop

Here's the site for your tecra laptop

Restore Hardrive to Factory Settings, Missing Hidden Partition


Yes Claudia you are right. When you wiped the hard drive you deleted the partition that contained the systen restore (factory restore). You will have to purchase a new copy of Vista. It will not contain all of the other programs that came with your computer originally.
Before you installed Windows 7 it clearly states that you have to back up your system before you install it on your hard drive.
Why didn,t you keeep windows 7, if I may ask? If you made a copy of it (which you had to do when you insatlled it) reinstall it and use it. Microsoft will let you purchase it for $50.00, which is a lot less that what it will cost you to purcase Vista Home Premium.
