Hello Linda,

I don't think your dumb! I don't know about algebra and I'm not interested about knowing about it, yet I score an IQ of 132.

So here is the way to restore your soon to be ex laptop and return it like brand spanking new to Walt Mart. You should have plenty of time to restore and return it before closing.

Good luck

Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partition on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.

To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps.

ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE POWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURING THIS PROCESS.


1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.

Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.

2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.

3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.

4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.

5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.

6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.

7) Click Next to Start recovery.

Thank you, Ambucias 30

Dear Linda,

You are totally welcome, it was my pleasure.

P.S. Minissota for algebra? I would rather visit, thank you. If you were in Quebec, I would teach you more internet stuff.
thank you boss

Thank you
What I meant is, when you purchased the computer, was Windows installed by Toshiba or buy the store where you purchased it from.

Also, I would like to know if you were given the Windows Cd's.

Please be nice, I not paid for this, I'm a volunteer like everyone else on this forum
Very sorry if you thought I was rude. I really meant it I am retarted when it comes to computers so I wrote that laughing at how dumb I am about this. sorry sorry sorry I was not given a disc with it and I purchased it from walmart. I assume toshiba installed it. thank you <see it took me how long just to locate your response???>
