    Try this,Hold down F8 and then turn the power on whilst still holding down the F8 key. This should access the recovery /repair screen.opt for the repair option 1st. If that does'nt work you will have to do the restore option, but this will restore it to the factory settings and you will lose all you data.

Toshiba Qosimo stopped on startup logo, unresponsive to commands

I used this same response in a previous solution....It mostly looks like your installation of Windows has been corrupted....some system files may have been affected. See if you can find the recovery disk for your machine. One of the things you can try is use the CD as your boot disk (you may need to enter the BIOS or SETUP to change the boot order...there will be a key to hit when you see the Toshiba splash screen when you first boot the will say press "<some key here>" to enter setup.)
Once you boot from the disk I would try getting to a command prompt and running the following command: chkdsk c: /f /r

This will scan and repair any bad sectors on your hard drive and if they can be repaired it may make your machine bootable again. If they cannot be repaired, it may be that your hard drive is dying. ither way...if you get into the machine (even from the boot disk) if you can see the drive, I'd recommend backing up whatever files you can, because if the drive dies, you will lose your data. You may also use a Linux LIVE CD ... this basically boots a version of linux from a disk rather than your hard drive, it may allow you to test hardware and back up files as necessary before thinking about reinstalling Windows.

. I have a toshiba satellite a105 that will boot

hmm I don't really understand what you mean by home screen ..but I think you mean the desktop ...and in this case ..If it freezes it means it is already corrupted. by a virus..and need to be reinstalled.This can be done using the recovery partition .or disk ..or using a boot-able disk with the operation system ..
If you have the recovery partition ..just start again ..and press f12 for the boot menu ..(or F11 depending on how is set ..and it is written on screen what you should press for this menu ) ..and select in the boot menu the recovery partition and the complete reinstalling of the operation system ..This will make it work again ..
Another thing that may caused this if you installed more than one antivirus ..and now they ar ein conflict ...try to see if it works to make any commands if you wait...(if it is just really slow .) ..and if it works ..try to remove one ..if it is the case..and it may work and not need to reinstall it ..but those cases usually the radical solution is the fastest and best ..
If you do not have a recovery disk or partition need to borrow a operation system disk ..or make one by burning a downloaded image with the OS ..
They are available on the net ..if you are willing to try one ..(look on the torrent site pirate bay or mininova ...and see what is available sure you download a genuine one ..and follow the instructions for to burn it right and be functional ) ..

Startup repair won't run

"Unmountable boot volume" this problem is your hard disk partition which is failure to recognize & identify the operating system running on the hard disk. Reformat your hard disk and put another operating system to run again your computer.

Tecra 8100 Freezes shortly after Windows comes up

Go into your hard disk utility and defragment your file. When the computer writes to your hard disk over time these files no longer are sequential as they were in the beginning. This is one solution, also you can do a disk recovery using your original disk or by pressing F10 as it boots up. Be sure and do a good check for viruses as well. The symptom you are describing sounds alot like a virus that is slowing your system down more and more. Good luck.

Freezing up

I think you need to do a power cycle. remove the battery and use tha AC adapter alone. If it boots, then thats good. U can try also booting on safe mode by pressing F8. Then re start the notebook in normal mode. If it wont works then i think u need to reinstall windows as a last resort. U need to use TOSHIBA RECOVERY DISK this time.
