As title says I have a Toshiba Satellite p100-160. I can't find any details as to when it was manufactured but it does not appear to have the 'hidden partition' from all Toshiba laptops manufactured after mid 2007 and I no longer appear to have the recovery disk. I fired it up yesterday and it is unbelievably slow, I have run antivirus and disk defrag but still very slow.
Is there a way to either restore to factory settings completely without the startup disk or is there a way to get hold of one because Toshiba helpfully no longer provide nor are willing to provide the disk.

Hope you can help and thank you in advance.
