Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
I have a Toshiba A105. When I turn the computer on, the computer powers up, fans come on, DVD drive reads, then it freezes, before the red Toshiba logo comes on. The only way to get it to boot up is to hold the power button in, and repeate the process, untill it boots all the way to the red logo, then on to windows. This might take 40 to 50 times, but it will eventually boot, and work fine. I took it to a shop, and they blew me off, and said the mother board was shot. I don't understand, that it's shot, when it works fine, after you get it to boot all the way. Any help would be great! Thanks...
I would first attempt to reinstall the software from the install cd. Your Toshiba support page is recomending a new BIOS upgrade. See below:

Tips for a great answer:
Possibly a RAM issue or errors on the
hard drive stopping the display driver from working properly. Remove
power sources, remove RAM and hard drive. See if you get a display
when the power adapter is reconnected. If you do, remove power source
and fit RAM, (if not motherboard may be faulty). Repeat and if still
working, remove power, fit Hard Drive and boot again.
Assuming your OS is Windows Based;
Reboot and use safe mode run CHKDSK/F and when finished check the drivers.
Hope that helps.
