    The computer has a black screen with cursor in the middle not able to move. I have opted to do recovery disk but it is not doing anything still black screen with cursor in the middle of screen. I have backed up computer ages ago not worried about wiping it all off just want to restore to factory settings.

    What is the type of recovery OS you are using? And what version of windows was originally on the PC?

    What's the complete model number of that Toshiba Satellite A500?

    There should be a dash ( - ) and additional characters after A500.

    There should also be a part number and/or a serial number on the same sticker.

    Which country do you live in?
