    Hi,

    I'm new at this so please be gentle with me! - I have a Toshiba Satellite L350-170 (Windows Vista SP2). I burned 2 recovery DVD's just after I got it from new. I decided to recover it to factory settings, so I placed the first recovery disc in the drive and ....nothing. It won't auto play/boot up to start the recovery process. I can access files on the disc via "MY COMPUTER" but can see a "SET-UP". I had previously used the discs to recover and it worked then no problem.

    There is nothing wrong with the computer or any error messages

    Apologies if its been said before but, can anyone help or let me know whats happening please?

    with grateful thanks

    Myke

    Hello Myke

    If it has worked in the past i donít see the reason why it should not works again, except the discs are damaged.

    Anyway, try this:
    Start your notebook and press F12 several times to enter boot menu
    Put the disc 1 into optical disc drive
    In the list choose CD/DVD drive and press ENTER

    ODD should start to read the disc and you should see something on the screen.

    Does it work for you?

    To be honest I donít know what do you mean with ďauto playĒ but you cannot start recovery installation in Windows.
    You must use optical disc drive as first bootable device and, of course, start recovery with disc 1.

    Just do it as described by as*** and it should start.
