It will help if you mention the Toshiba model so we can ascertain which BIOS is running. But in general, take the USB out of the slot, and then when the machine starts up, press F2 when you see the prompt.
Alternatively if you do not see the prompt screen, press the ESC key for 3 seconds immediatley as you start the machine and then F1- that should present you with the Setup screen
When you press the power button normally the boot options will display on the screen. Most times it is the F12 key to select the boot option. This is a temporary change only good for the current boot cycle.
Also most times the F2 key will get you into the Bios or System Setup where you can change the boot option and make it a permanent change.
Possibly a bios problem if the bios is not set to boot from a cd/dvd. Press Delete key or F2 as soon as you switch on, or whichever key it needs to get in to the bios. Change the boot option to boot from CD/DVD first. Save settings and exit.
Some computers have a one time boot menu which lets you boot from whichever drive you like just for that time. Usually F11, F12, F2.
Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
Removed your power cable and drain power without any power. restart and keep on hitting f12 to get to the boot menu choose ODD then put the OS CD then press enter until its say press any key. If it did not work your other option is reboot and hit f1 or f2 to change the boot sequence on boot option. Restart pc then hit f2 go to boot option and choose DVD/CD to be your first boot option then press f10 restart and it should load automatically.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer.
Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.
Are you trying to reinstall your OS? Or just trying to boot to normal mode?
If the first is your case, you have to choose booting with CD drive in order for your system to boot on your CD Installer.
However, if the second is your case, you don't need to press F2 and F12 after powering on. If you encounter this without your BIOS changed, try reverting it back to BOOT on HARD DRIVE. That is when you are in the BOOT OPTIONS, select HARD DRIVE and press ENTER.
1) Switch on PC
2) Press F12, del or the ESC key to enter setup
3) Go to advanced options and then choose boot options
4) In boot options choose USB peripheral to be set as first boot device
5) Save and exit from the BIOS screen
As the PC restarts make sure the USB flash drive is plugged into the PC
Some computers allow you to select an alternate boot device by pressing the F12 key as you boot up.
If your computer doesn't have this option then go into the BIOS configuration and change the boot order and make the CD-ROM the first boot device and the hard drive the second boot device.
1st boot to BIOS (F2 at boot) see if system reboots there. If not, the try booting to f12 menu and run diagnostics.
Generally, things like partition corruption, bad RAM and viruses cause uncommanded reboots.
There are a number of keys used to access the system BIOS at startup. F2 is probably the most common, but I see you've already tried that. I've also seen the ESC and DEL keys used, so try those. If that doesn't work, start working your way across the F1-F12 keys.
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
