Can you access BIOS? if you can access the bios, you might solve this problem by changing the CPU setting from 'always dynamic' into 'dynamic low' Hopefully this could help you

If you get a display or splash screen then you may just have a bad hard disk or memory dimm. If you get nothing then it is a hardware failure beyond a simple fix. Get on the phone with Toshiba and get it fixed before your warranty is up.

I replaced vista with xp on my Satellite L305D-S5895 and now it crashes during xp install. why?


This model Toshiba laptop has a SATA hard drive.

SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive. http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

I want to install windows vista by dell to my laptop will it work?


You can if you have regular Windows Vista disk, do not use Dell installation cd. (borrow from a friend or ask in your local comp. store if they can make you a bootable copy)
Use Vista key from the sticker on the dell computer. Make sure after install you put all the Vista drivers for the Toshiba so everything works ok.

How can I restore my Toshiba L305D-S5895 laptop from the recovery disks when the laptop don't even turn on to windows or recognize the HDD? Please help or is the HDD wiped clean somehow? I have windows...


You should be able to boot the computer from the operating system recovery disk. Most likely your harddrive crashed, or one of (many) other issues. It could have just erased your MBR, in which case you can boot with a live cd and recover most (if not all) of your data.
