I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop L500D.

I was having problems with it just randomly restarting and after doing various scans and registry repairs defragging etc I decided to restore it to the out of box factory setting.

All going well I go through the process and while it's in the TOSHIBA recovery wizard 'recovering' it seems to halt at 24% the lapsed time ticking over with the remaining time saying 9 minutes.

This is my second attempt at doing this because after the first time it did the same thing but as I was away from my computer when I came back to it, it appeared to have shut down so I started it back up. On starting it up it came with Error: F3-F200-0002

I'm unsure what to do I've tried googling and am still no closer to fixing my laptop....

At the moment it is trying to recover but again is stuck at the 24% lapsed time 58 mins and still counting...

I would appreciate any input/suggestions please , Thank you.

Does your recovery media have a hardware test area in the menu? You need to run it to test some components.

The issues you describe could be hard disk issues, or memory, but other things also.
