Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
A few days ago, my laptop began to freeze halfway through the loading process, during the first screen after I turn it on. My CD drive is stuck shut, and no matter what, it freezes just as it starts up. If I press F2 for setup, it says "Please Wait" and still freezes halfway through, and F8 and F12 do nothing. It just keeps freezing halfway through the "In Touch with Tomorrow, Toshiba" screen, and it doesn't even sound like it's starting up on the inside. Can somebody please help? Remember, I absolutely cannot press any buttons, and the CD drive won't open.
It could be a corrupt bios, which can be deleted with the removal of the bios battery or by the 'JBAT1' terminal to pins 2-3 then back to 1-2. The bios is probably set to halt on all errors and thats why it only goes so far. If there is no action at all; then there is a power failure to the motherboard or the processor has failed. Depending on your notebook age is whether it's economical to repair.
