Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
You don't need a start up disk from toshiba. A regular Windows instalation CD/DVD is enough.If your computer was wiped, there's a chance the Toshiba startup disk will not start either.
If you use an OEM version of your Windows (have a windows key sticker on your laptop), then download an OEM Toshiba version. Use this LINK for more information.
When you have the Windows CD, you just need to repartition the disk and reinstall windows.

No the disk you have has all of the factory default installs on it. If you are having trouble getting the PC to reboot meaning load xp on start-up check the pcs bios setting to verify that the hard disk is set to be first boot priority. If it defaulted to "CD" then it may not boot into xp. The other item to check is completely remove the battery for about a minute then reinstall. Then get into the pc bios to check boot priority.
When running the recovery disk make sure you selected the complete reinstall with format option. Do not try the repair installation or fix installation option. I suspect that you may have reinstalled over your old installation which is causing the problem u mentioned

The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.
During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.
This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.
The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.
You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.
This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.
Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.
Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.
Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.
Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.
Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.
Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.
Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.
Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.
Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.
Hope this helps
