I bought a used NB205 and it moves extremely slow and I thought the only option is to reset to factory settings, but I do not have any disks from Toshiba OR Windows...If I reset, will I lose my Windows or have to restore it with disks?

 

I know when you buy a new computer, it comes with disks and I believe Windows is installed already, but I am not sure if I reset it it will automatically have Windows installed again.

 

Please HELP!!!

I've already done that. However, I called Toshiba...it will wipe out my windows unless I get the CD for $39.95

Well...Toshiba developed the mechanism and the system.  I can't suggest anything other than the info in the link I submitted.

Do you think the processor is slow?? Or should I clean up the viruses?

Do you have a recovery partition shown in Disk Management? Right click Computer > Manage > Disk Management. Post a screenshot of your Disk Management Window.

 

Edit: The computer orginally specifictions list it as using XP. You posted in the Windows 7 forum. If Windows 7 was installed after XP then you will not be able to factory reset it.
