Tecra is often tagged the "performance laptop" by its manufacturer, Toshiba. In other words, Tecra is designed for users who multitask in a business environment. A factory restore is a common technique to fix errors that cannot otherwise be cured or to get rid of malware that cannot be removed by an anti-malware program. Factory restore is always your last resort because you lose all data when you perform a factory restore. Please back up all important data on an external storage device before performing this task.

    Press and hold down the power button for about 10 seconds to turn off your Tecra laptop.
