Hi Luna

What give you the decision to do factory reset.

There must be something wrong that make to do re-install, right.

This time do recall on what you had done Before you make the decision to re-install.

Is there any changes in the Hardware, which is most likely the cause.

If there is, remove it, and re install using the original recovery disk, if possible.

Factory setting is on the laptop as when it is new.

Any hardware changes may result in this situation.

In other word, strip of any Hardware that you had added, even a simple HW.

That is to say, some hardware do required driver to run before installing the hardware itself.

Edit: For your info.
I have done several re-install to factory setting, but i use the original Recovery disc itself.
As i have 2 Toshiba laptop (now 3) went to the service center to buy the recovery disc.
That is to say, i can remove the recovery partition to gain more space.
Re-install to factory is very straight forward, other then taking a couple of days to do windows update.
So far, for example, this laptop i am using is using recovery disc to restore to factory setting.
The previous owner use a retail version.
For using original recovery disc, the drivers and other program will not be an issue.
So far, no problem since day 1, except some components damaged, and repaired and it works good.
