I own a Toshiba Satellite laptop L305D and it runs Windows Vista 32-Bit.
So my laptop was starting to catch a virus and I figured that it would be easier to install an antivirus software if I restore my laptop to factory settings. So I went on to Google and searched up on "how to restore laptop to factory settings Toshiba" and followed all directions listed. I chose the option of recovering without the need of a CD/DVD, because I don't have one, since Toshiba never placed one in my package.
But, I have a feeling my laptop did the entire opposite. It erased the entire hard drive. Now. when I boot up my laptop, after the Toshiba logo disappears, a black screen appears saying: "No boot disk detected--insert boot disk." As stated before, I don't have any type of disk! Nor did I want to restore with a disk!
I tried burning the Vista and Driver Restore programs onto a blank CD and placing it into my laptop. That option didn't work. I transferred the same programs into the USB Drive and inserted it into my laptop. That option didn't solve anything, either.
