Thank you

Try this:

1. Turn the computer on, uplug the adaptor.
2. Leave the adaptor unplugged until the PC power light goes off.
3. Turn the computer on again a couple of time to make certain the battery is depleted.
4. Plug in the power adaptor.
5. Reboot (POR)


Thank you, TY 6

JUst repeat the same Recovery process.
Turn off your computer and hold 0, then turn it back on while holding it for 10 seconds and it should go to the recovery thing again, I had an error as well but it looks like its working, good luck :)

Access the hidden O/S partition - hold down the power button for 10 seconds to make sure unit is off. Hold down 0 key and power on. Follow prompts to restore to factory settings.

Oh my lord, thank you so much for posting that, Binary King! My computer is now working fine.. I cannot honestly thank you enough. :)
worked perfectly! thank you for posting this!
Thank you
Toshiba won't sent a replacement, and Microsoft will redirect you to the manufacturer. I am having a major problem getting a Vista 32 bit disc, even though I have a completely legal key to use in the program. My computer won't even start for me to get the backup from the partition, and of course I didn't even know that was possible until it was too late.
Thank you
New computers manufactured in from mid 2007 are no longer provided with recovery disks for your operating system. This is because your recovery media is now built into a hidden partition on your Hard Disk Drive. You can access this following these instructions.

If you would like to have a backup of this, you may create this by using your Recovery Disk Creator. This will allow you to create a copy of the files on the recovery partition on disk.

1. Click Start

2. Select All Programs

3. Select Recovery Disc Creator.

Recovery Disk Creator

4. Within the Recovery Disc Creator select Create

5. When prompted enter the first blank DVD and select Ok

6. When prompted enter the second blank DVD and select Ok

Further Troubleshooting

My computer came with a set of recovery disks and I need to replace these.

If your computer was shipped with a recovery disk and you need to replace it; you may purchase this from Toshiba by calling the Technical Support line on 13 30 70 (Australia) and 0800 445 439 (New Zealand).

Please note that replacement discs are chargeable at $66.00 (AUD) including GST and shipping. You will need to provide your Toshiba Serial Number and your Windows������® Prduct Key for this service. This information can be found on the base of your computer.

Toshiba Australia & New Zealand cannot create and/or distribute discs for international machines.

Anon, you realize the avg computer user has no clue they have to create a recovery disk. Current person I'm refurb'ing comp for just used it until the HDD broke. The recovery partition is inaccessible. Customer didn't realize they had to make a recovery disk. They just used the comp. Toshiba should realize this and just give folks the recovery cd's. OR ... give them as a free torrent/download online. That would make MY job easier, as I could just dl them, burn to CD, and install using the cust's OEM key on the bottom of the lappy. But NOOooooo...they had to switch to a "recovery partition" BS, so when the HDD borks (as all Toshiba's have a tendancy to do quickly), you're pretty much screwed. Great.
if you turn off the laptop and when you turn it back and hold down 0 key while it powers up you can restore it to out of the box specs
Thanks 'groug' for the tip about holding down the 0 key, worked perfectly and the laptop is back up and running :))
WOW just like new and the Geek Squad wanted $199 - 70 for warranty credit.. Thanks!!!!!!!!
Thank you
I needed it too, finally I found it on toshiba America website support here :

Thank you
you can download and/or order all recovery disk from the Microsoft website. I personally would not use a 3rd party site to download from as you never know what the will have included in the install files.

For XP users

Every type of computer can use these disk as a recovery disk, though sometimes getting all your drivers up 2 date can be a task, this is that fastest and safest way to get your recover disk for all operating systems.

Thank you
Head here:

If your using xp you can use the MS website to download all windows recovery cd's

You can also stop the computer from doing an auto restart that way it will stop when the blue screen appears, so you can see what error you are getting. Once we know the blue screen error we can help you with why your having the problem, you may not even need a recovery, let me know and I will walk you through the steps to do this.

Thank you
I have a satellite PRO it ok if I buy the A300 series cd?
and when I bought my notebook I had windows vista business...and if I buy in one of the site that you wrote it's just home premium?
Satellite PRO A300 Series is NOT the same than A300 Series They are NOT compatible Look one says "PRO"
Thank you
I have one too and lost everything. I could not get a recover cd without paying. I just got a free Suse 11 live cd from Linux Magazine so cost was $9.00. I now am running Suse live and installed it on my Toshiba satellite laptop. Now you can install any Linux. For you Window user Ubunto is Window friendly.
Thank you
i would like to get this pc back to factory settings
HI. anything like back to factory settings just go to system restore then to a very late date so you wont have to pay money for someone else to do it. I used to do that all the time. just make sure the files you want to save are on disk.
hope that helps anyone
