. 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 ) ..

If you've got exacttly the same each time you're start, then the VGA card has issue, or even the motherboard and CPU.

If not then try to chock the base of the screen with two fingers when starting, if nothing happen try to chock the middle of the keyboard and several spot around it. (it's a little bit brutal but the easiest way to find a bad contact or dead components)
If you feel like open it then this website will help you:
and for the screen:
good luck
