Satellite L300 - I can recover from the hidden partition


The vista on my L300 will not start.

I try to use the modem for the first time, but he could not communicate with the line. So I delete in "Device Manager".

After the reboot, vista boot screen appears only for 3 seconds then restart the laptop. There is no way, no safe mode...

Contact the hd as an external drive XP say 'unknown' 0 bytes, with Linux just like named 'vista' and I could open all the files.

I have no recovery. DVD burning with the Toshiba Recovery program has failed tree times and so I give up.

the hidden partition is ok. On my laptop from a different manufacture, I can recover from this hidden partition. Is it possible to do it on my L300?

Thanks for the information



The hidden partition you want to say has nothing to do with the Toshiba recovery image.
There are files for system restore, and it is a feature of Vista, not Toshiba. If you want more information about the restore of the system here is a good article from Wikipedia:

The HARD drive recovery folder contains the original recovery image and if you don t have access to this folder and do not burn the recovery disc, you need a new.
You can get one from an ASP, but you can also order a disc here:

Good bye

    remove the hidden recovery partition will void the warranty on the Satellite A200-130?

    No, certainly not!

    You can delete what you want ;) you can also install a different operating system.

    You would lose the guarantee only if you open and disassemble the laptop or attempt to upgrade not upgradable components such as CPU for example.

    Just for the note; You can set the laptop back to the factory settings using the Toshiba Recovery CD.

    This would create a new hidden too restore partition.

  • Satellite L300 - where can I get the recovery utility


    I have the Satellite L300 laptop with the reinstalled Windows 7.
    A year ago, I installed an original Version of Windows Vista, but I created a Windows 7 recovery disk.
    I recorded all of the files on another partition recovery, but I need the recovery utility to create the installation disk.
    Where can I find this utility?

    Thanks in advance


    You can not download it.
    The Toshiba recovery disc creator is preinstalled and you should always create the recovery disk before you change the operating system or anything on the HARD drive.
    Save files to another partition recovery won't help you because the recovery disk creator Toshiba will not recognize it

    Now, you will need to order the recovery disk if you want to recover the computer laptop s factory settings.

  • Satellite L300 - I can't increase the volume for low battery

    Hello dear users of Toshiba

    My English is not very good.
    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L300
    My problem is that I can not increase the volume to a low battery

    Is there anyone who knows how can I fix it?



    I think you want to turn on sound notification when the battery is empty.
    Is this good?

    Well, you can do it in Vista power settings
    I guess you are using the Vista operating system and therefore this battery notification can be enabled in Vista power settings.

    Please check this doc from Toshiba.
    + How to manage Windows Vista power management features.

    You will find the settings in the farm. It s called the low battery level

  • Satellite L300 - where can I find the sound drivers?


    I removed Vista and installed XP Pro Service Pack 3, but I can't find the audio drivers right. I have a Toshiba Satellite L300N.
    I tried the audio driver on Toshiba download page. I also tried to install KB888111xpsp2.exe (support of the SAU) but no luck.

    If someone could help, I would be very grateful!

    Thank you



    Can you please explain what your problem is exactly?
    Why drivers on the Toshiba site do not work?

    In addition, you must install both patches from Microsoft. The second version (KB888111) isn't enough if you read the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    You must uninstall version 1.0 of the Audio class driver high definition UAA before installing version 1. 0a.

    Then please install the hotfix else too:

    After installing the pachtes you can follow with sound installation.

  • Satellite L300, how to start from the cd/dvd external USB drive?

    I have an old laptop Satellite L300, latest version of the BIOS (2.20) installed.
    I would like to start on a connected external USB CD/DVD player
    BIOS will not start on this CD/DVD disc.
    In the BIOS boot priority is: CD/DVD, USB, HDD
    When starting, computer ignores the CD/DVD, ignores the USB and start on the HARD drive.
    Is it possible at all boot for CD/DVD USB external?

    Thanks for the efforts made to respond.

    It is NOT possible, I thought. REASON: The BIOS does not, does not reckognize CD/DVD (does not test if code such USB-CD/DVD bootable) drive connected via USB.

  • Re: How to start the recovery from the hidden partition?

    Sorry for my English.

    I reinstalled Windows from DVD Windows (win Vista) because I get blue screen sometimes. After the reinstallation, I had the same problem again.
    Now the shop wants to charge me for the service because recovery F8 does not work. I still have this hidden partition, but I put t know how to do the recovery. Any chance of fixing the problem?

    I don t care about the data and the blue screen, I think than is hardware problem.
    Thank you


    Now you have the problem. You can start the recovery folder HDDRecovery facility just if your laptop has the factory settings.
    When you use Microsoft facilities disk for the installation of the operating system, this option will be gone.

    You have created recovery DVD such as recommended by Toshiba?

  • Pavilion dv6t-2000 - cannot recover from the recovery partition

    Hey there. I'm trying to restore my laptop with Win 7 settings, but I can't seem to restore from my recovery partition. I tried the F8, F11 key and on the ways to office with no luck. In some of them, recovery option is grayed out, but using the recovery on the Desktop Manager, I have recovery option, but he says to insert disk 1 before continuing. I have no disc and I already have a previous restoration set the last time I got my laptop (about 2 years ago).

    When I click on my computer I see the c drive and d drive - what is labeled a recovery partition. I did a check of the recovery partition and there are no errors. It seems to work fine, except that my laptop is not to be used to recover. I know it's a major road, so I've never tested with it.

    Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated

    It is more likely that some of the files were corrupted on the recovery partition. At this point, since you have no recovery disc, I would phone HP to order recovery media.

  • recover from the recovery partition

    I found several entries by searching in the forum, but nobody seems to be similar to my problem:

    I want to recover my windows vista system partition using the partition recovery on my T61p.

    It worked very well for me last time. But in the meantime I installed Ubuntu which was installing the grub loader, I think that what causes the problem all to rewrite the mbr.

    By pressing the Thinvantage key while booting does not show me the usable entries. If I boot from the Thinkpad - Recovery Boot disk iexpect only after pressing 'next' linux partitions and data will be deleted also.

    But especially as I could finally recovery... "Select the partition you want to use as the system partition" or another message like this.

    I remember, I was delighted when I saw this message. Because at the time, I was doing this I was expecting something like that. But today, that would be great, I don't have to reinstall Linux.

    Can you please tell me how I'm going to continue?

    Thank you

    For 3 or 4 days I'm looking a solution for my problem.

    I tried many things and spent a lot of time reading about similar issues.

    Windows Vista Ultimate on my T61p is not able to upgrade to SP1. I did it via ThinkVantage System Update, Windows Update function function and I downloaded the SP1 of

    Meanwhile my games installed do not work, I reinstalled them and then got an error message like: ereg.exe does not work.

    Installation completed then and I got the same error as before, at the start of the game.

    I had a serious accident before 4 months and I spent all the time in hospitals. My only satisfaction now is my new T61p and I don't get to work.


    Maybe I did something wrong before update so I tried to use the recovery feature to set windows to the same status as when I got the laptop.

    I tried using the CD Boot Vista added, disk 1-c and the last c. I also tried using the recovery partition which I did not have to work when I started this thread.

    During this time I installed the rescue and recovery 4.2 and now he got the correct menu entry. When I select this function (F11) starting the computer was 'normal' and I had the selection of GRUB menu...

    I also found a scandiskpatch.exe which should correct some problems of RnR using Vista and 4.2 RnR. But when I doubleclick on it, I get a message that my computer do not have good condition for the correction of program (or something else, I use the German language pack.

    I want to restore my computer, and then try to update and if this doesn't work I still will have to find a solution for this.

    Please help me with this very annoying problem.

  • Satellite L300 - How can I change the size of the partition in Vista?

    The hard drive on my L300D is roughly evenly distributed between Vista/C: and D:/data. Does anyone know if there is something in Vista that will allow me to change the sizes of the partitions?

    Thank you very much.



    The partition size can be easily changed in Vista. Therefore, you can use the Vista disk management utility. On the Toshiba site I found this document:

    I think that should answer your question. Isn t it then? ;)

  • Is satellite P200 - possible to recover from a single partition


    Is it possible to recover a single rather than format each disk and then recover partition.
    Or will I just use Windows to do since the picture is made by using ImageX


    Hmm, there is a big difference between Vista and XP Recovery CD.
    To my knowledge the recovery CD Toshiba Vista does not choose any partition and it formats the drive HARD integer before retrieving BONES!
    The Toshiba with Win XP Recovery CD allows you to choose a partition on the HARD drive.

    You have a laptop P200 and I guess it came with Vista. So I guess that you will not be able to choose any partition and it seems that the recovery CD will format the entire HARD drive!
