Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
OK, here's my suggestion but 1st a question, did you by any chance just finish running a anti-virus or malware scan before this happened?
I have seen a lot of computers where the winlogon file called userinit.exe gets infected by a virus and then is wiped out by a malware scan. So the registry entry points either to nothing or an incorrect file
To replace userinit.exe:
1. Boot using Recovery console (or other cmd prompt with access to C: drive)
2. CD Windows\System32
3. Expand d:\i386\userinit.ex_ userinit.exe (or Copy d:\i386\userinit.ex_ userinit.exe) where d: is CDROM drive and need to expand compressed file to full file.
4. type Exit to reboot

Ok, that rules out the problem some systems with an AMD processor have with SP3.
Before we try anything else, unplug the computer, remove the battery and leave it like this for a few minutes. But the battery back, plug it in and try it.
If that does not work you will need you windows CD.
Put it in the drive & boot to the CD
You need to press R and go to the recovery console
type chkdsk /r
If this does not work, repeat and this time type fixboot
