Satellite A500 - How to restore factory settings after Windows 7 upgrade?
since I've upgraded my OS to Windows 7 I have some troubles. Generally I noticed my notebook would't work as well as it was on Vista 32bit. Especially with online games (souch as counter strike 1.6).
The problem is I don't have my backup DVD's because my DVD burner wouldnt work at all :/ Now I just wonder how could I get back to win Vista without DVD's. Is that even possible? I also didn't get CD's whet I bought my notebook. So what should I do?

I think I haven’t good news for you: Restoring to factory settings without Toshiba recovery disk isn’t possible in your case!
First of all I think it’s normal that no recovery disks are delivered anymore with the notebook because you have to create them yourself by using Toshiba recovery disk creator. Therefore it’s recommendable using high quality mediums like Verbatim DVD-R.
I don’t understand why you didn’t create this disk because after first start if you put the notebook out of box, you get the following message: 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 hat you are able to restore your computer to the original factory installed state, even if your computer gets seriously damaged
