The 'press 0 while turning it on' only applies to models made after about mid 2007. Apparently that laptop originally came with vista so it may date from before then. If that's the case you'll need a regular installation disk or restore disks for that particular model, if they're available.

Can be tricky, but from off, tun it on, and as soon as the bios screen/Toshiba logo comes on the screen hold down the zero button. I know you have tried it, but that is the process for Toshiba if you have the recovery partition, it's all in how you hold your tongue sometimes. If you did not have a recovery partition, it would come with recovery cd/dvd's to restore the operating system, do you have those?

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!

Can we assume that the computer is too messed up for us to assist with fixing the problem that needs factory restore?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You're welcome. You may want to check the support site for your model and see if you can order restore disks. A google search also might turn up some third party sites selling restore disks.
