Another article in the series devoted to restoring laptops from various manufacturers to the factory settings from the recovery section is devoted to Toshiba laptops.
I want to warn you right away that restoring Toshiba laptops to the factory state takes significantly longer than similar actions with laptops of most other manufacturers (although this is a fairly lengthy process for everyone), so it is very important that the laptop is connected to the mains and has a full battery charge, in case of power outages.
Well, of course, it is necessary to carry out all the necessary preparations. I wrote in more detail about this in the article “How to restore a laptop to its factory state: introduction”, so read it if you have not read it yet. All further actions assume that you have followed all the recommendations described in it.
So, to start the recovery environment from the recovery section that is stored on the hard drive of a Toshiba laptop, you must press the F8 button when you turn on the computer, as if we wanted to select the boot mode. If you have never done this before and do not know at what point you need to press the button, then after turning on, just click on it until the following menu appears on the display:
Select the item "Computer troubleshooting", which comes first in the list and press Enter.
Soon the screen will prompt you to select a recovery language. After selecting the language settings that interest us, click Next.
After that, we will be asked to select the user on behalf of whom the procedure will be launched. You will also need to enter a password if you have one.
After completing the necessary actions, click OK.
Next, we will be asked to choose a system recovery tool. We are interested in the Toshiba Recovery Wizard utility. To start it, click on its name.
When the utility starts, a warning appears that all data will be overwritten. We will also be warned about the need to connect a network adapter.

Since it is assumed that we have completed all the necessary preparations by this moment, click the “Yes” button (I apologize for the unimportant quality of the picture).
Now you will need to choose a recovery option. Since the article is devoted to restoring Toshiba laptops to factory settings, select the option “Restore factory default software” and click “Next”.
With the recovery method, specify "Restore to the state at the time of purchase (taking into account the options for system recovery)" and click "Next" again.
We will again be warned that all data will be lost. Click "Next."
After these steps, preparation for system recovery starts.
And soon the recovery procedure will start, which will take some time.
You need to wait until a message appears stating that the recovery is complete and we will be asked to click the “Finish” button to restart the computer. Click Finish
But that is far from all. As they say, a haircut has just begun. As I mentioned, the process will take a long time. The consolation is that our presence is not required. All further actions will be performed automatically, including periodic computer reboots. In the meantime, you can do household chores.
A signal that the recovery is fully completed and the laptop is ready for work will be an invitation to choose the language of the operating system.
