hi

Matt :

Hello

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

can you help me to reboot my laptop to factory setting?

Matt :

Yes, I can.

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

tell me what u want me to do

Matt :

Ok, your Toshiba laptop should come with an inbuilt recovery partition. To access it, shut down your computer and press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then depress the computer's power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear and it will give you an option to restore your computer to factory settings. Press 1 and click 'Yes' when prompted.


Matt :

The above process will recover your system to factory settings alright.

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

Matt :

Yes, that's the drill.

Matt :

Make sure that your computer is turned off first.

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

when do i release the 0 (zero) key?

Matt :

Ok, is this a new system and did it come pre-installed with Windows 7 or did you upgrade?

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

this is a new system and it come pre-installed with window 7

Matt :

Ok, it seems that the recovery partition has been damaged/corrupted somehow.

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

now what i do.

Matt :

In the circumstances, you would need to order a recovery disk using the link below:

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

how it costs

Matt :

Not more than $10-$15

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

there is no other way to reboot my laptop

Matt :

No, I'm afriad if the recovery partition is not working, then the only way to restore your system is by getting a recovery disk and then using to recover the system.

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

I have Toshiba Satellite L655D laptop?

Matt :

Ok, the steps are the same for your laptop model.

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :

Matt :

Yes, it will.

JACUSTOMER-9p6b9l2o- :
