Plz, I need help with reformatten my toshiba c600/c600d. I installed an old version of window 7 on it before from a cd rom because I wanted to change the language to english. I later discovered that the window I was using was an old version so I tried deleting it but it didn't work. so I deleted the hard disk partition, actually i deleted partition ''D'' on the hard dis because someone online told me so. Now I still can't recover it with the factory pre-recovery system. I tried holding down zero when I restart it but it didn't work. I don't know what to do plz I need help
Thank you very much for your assistance, I really appreciate. I'll have to order for the recovery media from toshiba. I have another toshiba satallite A350 and its having boot problem, in fact, it doesn't boot at all. I tried recovering it from the factory pre-installed recovery system but it didn't work. I help down the zero button while I turned it on but the recovery window won't prompt up. I need your advice on how to fix it.. thanks a lot.
PS: The F8 key is broken off but it still respond when I tap it, so am not sure that is the problem. Just thought you should know...
To restore your laptop to its factory settings, follow these steps:
Warning: All data on the hard drive will be erased. Back up any important data before proceeding. Make sure the computer is connected to a power supply and do not switch it off or restart during the process.
*1) Hold down the power button for 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 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 zero key
*4) When prompted by the warning screen, select Yes to continue with the system recovery
*5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software and click Next
*6) Select Recover to out-of-box state and Click Next again
