Cannot use the recovery for Satellite M45-S265 disc

I tried using the recovery disk for M45-S265 of my granddaughter.

According to the instructions that I'm supposed to put the DVD drive, and then turn off completely the machine. After that, restart and immediately hold down the F12 key, which should produce some sort of menu and then go through the recovery from there.

However when I take the key F12 is pressed after the closing, nothing happens.

So I'm looking for some real help here my friends. Thank you very much.



Can access you the BIOS as suggested by Feliks?
Select this check box and set the CD/DVD player in the first position.

Save the changes, and then attempts to boot from the disc of recovery again.

  • Cannot use the recovery on Satellite P100-227 disc

    I recently bought a laptop and decided to reset via the provided restore disc, to my surprise after having inserted the recovery disk and restart the notebook goes directly into Windows. Even if I went into the BIOS and set the CD/DVD drive as a starting point to the top, or even after pressing the F12 key.
    When the laptop is turned on the drive says that there is no data on the DVD, a double click on the DVD, it says 'insert the media into the DVD drive.

    My previous phone was a Toshiba Satellite 1900 303 and just to test and see if it was a problem with my recovery media, I've used the support of recovery on the P100 and it took me to the correct recovery screen. Then I swapped the media and used the recovery on the old 1900-303 Toshiba P100 and he returned to the correct recovery screen. This got me thinking so I tried a little more data CD / DVD and to my amazement it will read the DVD-R.

    No idea...


    Have you tried to force startup from the DVD keeping C key after turning on the device?

  • Re: Cannot use the recovery on Satellite L505D partition


    I am trying to help a friend with their Satellite L505D who had a serious virus problem. I wasn't able to run/install programs with the virus on it. I used a Microsoft tool to remove the rootkit trojan, but I always had problems with viruses. I also lost most of the programs on the computer. All folders were empty (except for some games), so I could not access all of the tools in this way. I could not the machine to load any Toshiba restore utility by pressing zero everything with power. I saw some recovery using F8 during the startup options and had a link to restore the original setting of Toshiba, but clicking that choice has done nothing else a break for a few seconds. I waited several minutes, clicked on it again, rebooted and tried. Nothing. As a side note, once all the while, the recovery partition was visible from explorer.exe. Not before or since.

    So I reformatted the computer with a 64-bit Win7 Home Premium Upgrade disk (the partition of restoration by leaving intact) and then enter the key for the system. Supprise, supprise, it asks me to activate within 3 days.

    My basic question is, can I access this partition recovery in a different way to use it? IE copy its contents, or start on some comand prompt to log e:?

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    Hello. I am originally from Poland but I have American type of toshiba and its imposible to do. Everyone says that it is not in Poland. Can someone help me? Who have to drive someone?

    Best solution for you is to install the full version of Microsoft and download all the drivers, tools and utilities in the United States download page.

    The cd came with the laptop and I've used it before without a problem.

    In this case, recovery cannot be installed because the notebook believes the recovery for a laptop CD.

    In this case, you should ask the service point for the update of DMI

  • Satellite L500 - 19 X - cannot use the recovery disk

    Well I had this phone two days ago and he used once after installing fire fox and my mobile to wide band of the driver and going to start and find it of going to happen.

    I tried SafeMode (three) and repair and all I got was a screen black with the cursor upward where it should have been a language screen (I used the recovery disc supplied with the notebook) so anyway, after finding out that I wasn't going to be able to fix it, I tried to install , but of course, this does not work, or so I put my XP 64 bit OS on and has perfectly worked, then I updated (using my own upgrade windows 7) and that works fine no problem, so I tried again with the original windows 7 comes pre-installed on the hard drive on the laptop and everything went find until she starts the installation of the driver or updates (I not 100% sure on this but it or after the installation of face recognition.

    Then it stops it of self down and boots back up to automatically restart and asking me if I want to repair due to a bad start, so I did the repair boots back to the top and still says I need to fix and can't find anything wrong and carries on in this circle.

    Now, I was told it could be the registry or there is a problem of graphics, I get pretty tired of having to install/reinstall/format this laptop.

    So if there is anyone who knows of what is wrong or what to do or whether it should be returned to fix, which will be very useful.

    I thank everyone in advance.

    Happy new year :)


    Well, I think that it of really difficult to say what is the reason. Maybe the recovery disk is noisy or the files corrupted it.

    At the moment, I can t imagine what it s a hardware problem because other windows drive work properly.

    In your case, I would try to install Windows 7 from a Microsoft disc and then see what happens. If it works properly and that you can install all drivers & tools you need to order a new drive Toshiba Recovery directly.

    Good bye

    Have you tried to format the HARD disk until you try to use the recovery disk?
    Sometimes, I read in the forum that this may solve the problems with the recovery disk and so you can take the Windows XP disc or another tool that is able to format the drive.

    But after that, you have the Toshiba recovery disc. You are not able to use the HARD drive recovery feature.

  • How to partition the HDD using the recovery CD - Satellite P35-S6112

    Hi all

    First of all, I've read tons of messages within this support site and then decided to open a thread.

    My laptop model Nr: P35-S6112
    Recovery DVD code: TK143/PMAE00127012
    OS: Windows Xp home edition

    I'm trying to re - install the sytem with two disk partitions, but no luck. Recovery DVD (procedure) gives me no opportunity to separate the HDD in two different partitions, also commonly known as C and D when you reinstall the system.

    Many experts support claim that appears during installation install two modes and (Expert Mode) allows the user to divide the hard disk into partitions.

    Please, let me explain how to re - install.
    (A-) I simply recovery dvd in the drive and start the dvd player.

    B-) first black screen comes and asks confirmation to proceed for recovery (F1 means yes.)

    C-) second screen with two warnings as described below.
    1-) to ensure that the recovery CD/DVD is in the CD/DVD drive.
    2-) keep the CD/DVD in the drive until you are prompted to rremove it.
    Continue to press (C). To cancel press (A)?

    D-) then I select (C) and the recovery procedure starts without asking me if I want to separate disk in different partitions. Then, installation ends and creates an entire C: drive.

    I would like to know if this partitioning function is included in the recovery DVDs or should I have to pay for additional software separate my hard drive into two partitions of poor?

    Thanks in advance for your help.


    Recovery for laptops models European procedure is very well known to me, but I think you have a model of portable U.S. unfortunately I didn t see how it works for laptop computers in the United States, but I guess it must be similar to European models.

    In any case if you say that you cannot use the installation in expert mode I believe you. If there is no way to use recovery media I recommend you use the Partition Magic software. It is a very powerful software and the use you can manage HARD drive and create clean partitions or change the ability of persistence of partitions already.

    Good luck!

    Hey Buddy,

    You can get a new drive to an authorized service provider.

    But if the original OS from Toshiba is installed, you can use the function of disk recovery HARD reinstall Windows as well. Go to the advanced boot menu (F8) and select Repair my computer :)

  • How to get the recovery for Satellite L100 bought in China cd?

    I just buy a satellite L100 in China, the language of windows is Chinese... How can I change the language to Chinese to English on my windows. Or how can I get thecd recovery for satellite L100 innglish language... Thank you...

    Hi Santo

    If you use the advanced search of this forum you will find a lot of comments on a similar theme!

    In any case, I'll explain it once more ;)
    Usually the recovery CD, you can get the Toshiba ASP. BUT you bought the laptop in China. In this case you will not be able to order the CD image of Toshiba in the English language. You can only get a restore CD in the same language, where you bought the laptop.

    But if you want to have the English language operating system, install the Windows from the original CD of Microsoft English.
    You can download Toshiba drivers and utilities form the Toshiba site and install it.

  • Qosmio F25: Cannot use the recovery CD - bad CD message appears

    What is the problem?

    Someone replace the motherboard of your laptop?
    Sometime, a Toshiba system has had the system board replaced, it may become impossible to image the system using the recovery CD.

    The DMI string contains the model number of the system. When you use a recovery CD to recreate the image on a system, the installation process examines the DMI string and compares this string to the image being restored to ensure that the right image is applied to the correct machine.

    If the DMI string and the label on the image n t game, a bad machine or bad CD message will appear.
    In this case, you should ask the ASP in your country for assistance
