Need to reset toshiba nb505 to factory specs

RTM yet, read the manual
or ask Toshiba this,
I guess you mean reset the unstated, OS back to day one new as toshiba had it?
right. the manual tells you to make recovery disk.
and my guess you never did day 1 new. that it?
if yes, then you get to buy windows again.
8 year old PC so says the the manual.
so is not w8 nor w10 there,
it seems W7, right?
so buy W7 and install it.
or try w10 for free for 30 days, see if it runs,w10 does not like PCs too old.

page 50 shows " how to recover to the out of the box experience"
day1, all your data gone, all your apps gone. RTM or ask at toshiba forum we are not toshiba at all, not even close.... ok?

You can do this from the Bios itself. Depending on your system press either F2 or DEL during start up before the windows logo is displayed. Go to security and you can change the password there. You will have to have the current password in order to do this.

I need help with my daughter's Toshiba netbook.It goes to a screen that asks me to start up Windows or try to fix the problem. When I click on either one, it does some files gathering, but then nothing...

What you can do is you can try setting your computer to do a system restore in safemode

1. Shutdown the computer wait for 5 seconds and Turn the computer back on
2. the minute that you see the Toshiba logo pops up keep on hitting the F8 key like a typewritter
3. It will give you a black screen with white writtings that says "Windows Advance Options Menu"
4. Highlight using the up or down arrow key on Safe Mode Press Enter
5. Login your Windows password
6. Click Start --> Search Programs or Files and type System Restore
7. Select the Recommended Restore point when the computer is working keep on hitting Next and you are Set
