Reset toshiba satellite A100-TA2 to factory settings

\015 Got a virus and my toshiba satellite A100--TA2 laptop (PSAA8C-TA202C) is kaput. I need to reset it to factory settings since I don't have restore CD's. I know you can reset it whit a combination of keys while powering it on, but I can't find the right one. I tried the ''0'' and F8 but it doesn't give me the fix computer option. I am using XO Media Centre 2005. Any help would be appreciated.Thanks\015

A lot of the Toshiba Laptops do not have the Recovery partition but if you backed up your via backup disks when you first purchased your laptop; you can continually press F8 after you see the Toshiba startup logo to go into Safe Mode. There you can repair your computer from the the "Advanced Boot Options". Good Luck
