How to Restore the Toshiba Satellite A135 Laptop

By Candace Benson

The Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop ships in a variety of configurations. Some models include the Toshiba Recovery Wizard installed on part of your hard drive, while other models ship with recovery media. If your hard disk has crashed and you do not have recovery media, contact Toshiba Support for assistance at 800-457-7777. Back up your personal data and files to external media (DVD, USB drive, external hard drive, for example) prior to beginning the restoration process, as the recovery program will delete all content on your hard drive.
