    Have you checked the user manual of your notebook?
    There you can find all informations about to reinstall your notebook or you get the factory settings back. Furthermore you can find here a lot of threads about this topic so you must only use the search function.

    But if you have Vista on your notebook you can restore the factory settings if you use the HDD recovery function or you create the recovery disk. For the HDD recovery function you must only go in the advanced boot menu by pressing F8, select repair my computer and follow the screen instructions.
    With the recovery disk it’s similar: Just boot from the disk and follow the screen instructions.

    Furthermore you should these informations from the recovery reminder:
    +Important INFORMATION+

    +your system is equipped with hard disk recovery system. if you need to repair+
    +your computer by restoring it to original factory state, you can do it directly+
    +from harddisk (press F8 when you boot your computer, choose "Repair your computer"+
    +and follow the menue instructions) or create a bootable Recovery Disc Medium for this purpose.+

    +Toshiba recommends you to create Recovery Disc Medium using the "Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator" to ensure+

    Hello Salim

    To give you precise answer I need more info.
    Anyway, if you still use original preinstalled Vista (Factory settings) and if you didn’t changed partition structure or deleted “HDDRecovery” folder from the second partition you can do this as follow:

    -Start your notebook and pres F8 several times to enter “Advanced Boot options”
    -If the option “Repair my computer” is available choose it and you will enter Vista “System Recovery Options”
    -The last option there is “Toshiba Recovery” option. Choose it and follow the menu on the screen.

    If the option “Repair my computer” is not available in “Advanced Boot options” then you will not be able to install Vista using HDD installation.
