My Toshiba satellite laptop recently just stopped working.. I tried restoring it back to the out of the box state by holding the power key to turn off my laptop and holding down the 0 (zero) key. I then tapped the power key to turn on the laptop while still holding "0" and I didn't hear any beeps, however the recovery of factory default software did appear! I followed the steps and I am getting an error has occurred.
Partition creation failed
Please press [OK] to turn off the computer. I am truly discouraged! Any help on getting my laptop back to it's original state would be greatly appreciated. T.I.A :)

Thanks for your reply xpcman, luckily I was able to have a good nights rest and get up in the morning and try again. Turns out I was able to restore to factory settings using safe mode :) worked like a charm, my Toshiba laptop is up and in excellent running condition!! I was determined to fix the problem.. Hard work really does pay off! My laptop is only a couple of years old and taken care of, so I knew it couldn't be anything too serious to bring to a computer shop and spend a ridiculous amount of money.
