Can I restore my Toshiba laptop back to factory settings without the restore CD?

by on December 1, 2009

Q: Is there any way to completely reset a Toshiba Satellite with Windows ME back to factory default settings? How do I do this without the OS disk. I don’t understand how to use a startup disk.

    Contact Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777, give them your serial number and they can send you a recovery disk, cost will probably be around $20.

    However, Windows ME hasn’t been supported by Microsoft since 2006. So any bug fixes or system vulnerabilities in the past four years aren’t being fixed.

    Given that your laptop is probably close to 10 years old at this point as well, I’d suggest that you consider replacing the laptop all together.
