I have a Toshiba Portege R100 notebook which was connected to a domain server. I have the password and am using the notebook without connecting to the network but it being so slow I want to reset it to factory settings. I have'nt got any recovery cd/disks or anything like that. I wonder if someone can suggest the best way of doing this to make this note book free from login and basicaly restore the factory settings with all the Toshiba software to enable all the internal gadgets working perefctly.

Re: Toshiba Portege R100
It is possible to remove the domain login and networking setup, but you need to remove programs and cleanup/remove some registry items.
The best way to fix your problem is to wipe the hard disk and install Windows again. The Windows licence label is on the bottom of the laptop, use this product code to install Windows, you can borrow a Windows CD to do the install. Don't forget to download the device drivers from the Toshiba WEB site before you format your hard disk. You need to install your programs again as well.
If this is too hard then the easiest option is to put up with the login problem.

I'm assuming that this laptop is using Windows, and that the password is to an account on Windows.
At the login screen, press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice, and another login screen asking for a username and password should appear. In this box, put "Administrator" for the password, and either insert absolutely nothing, or "Administrator" for the password. I don't remember which works correctly, but one of the two will.
