Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105-S4254 Notebook ?

I would like to reset my computer back to original state. My system restore does not work. Disks did not come with my mother in laws computer.


Answers :

You have three options
\015\012Before you use any of the options you should attempt to get anything you need to keep from the hard drive (music, pictures, documents etc.)
\015\012
\015\012One is to buy a set of restore cd's from Toshiba
\015\012
\015\012The second is to buy a new operating system of your choice (my preference)
\015\012
\015\012Third is that some laptops come with aspecial resore partition built into the hard drive. For this I would suggest go inti the bios and see if there is any clue in there. If not then look for some form of extended boot sequence in the bios and set it to that.
\015\012
\015\012Start up the computer and watch the screen closely in case it says somthing like "Press F12 to restore your computer" or somthing similar
Restart computer and start pushing F8 buttons for several times. Then you can start your computer in Safe Mode and start system restore.
