Greetings,

If you have this message, that means the factory restore was not done correctly. Are you DVD recovery scratch?

However, many Toshiba laptops have a hidden partition for the restoration to factory settings, can you use it?

Waiting for your feedback.

Regards!
i dont know how to find this partition i have a sata cable i can link the hard drive to my other computers if need be

Hi,

This partition his hidden.

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

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.

Good Luck!
