Satellite C655-S5049 Factory Restore Software Error Message

Just received the Factory Restore Software from Toshiba.

 

Followed the Directions to Hold Down C while booting.

 

Process begins and I receive the following error message

An error has occurred

Press OK to turn off the Computer.

You might want to try a couple more times, but that could indicate hardware failure. Most likely the hard drive has a problem.

Factory Restore Software.

Hello.

The Toshiba supplied DVD to recover your machine is proper. I have done this on two laptops and met with success. As Peter mentioned, you might have a defective HD. The inability to recover is significant.   JP.
