Have you tried a "Cold-Start" ? unplug laptop, remove battery, hold down on/off button for 10secs or so. Replace battery, plug in laptop, re boot. Does it get to the pre-boot stage? does it show the options BOOT MENU, SETUP, BIOS or similar options?

SOURCE: Failure to boot

In these cases, I'd strongly recommend checking the RAM to ensure that isn't the problem. If the RAM is fine, then the issue is likely with the laptops motherboard. In which case, it would need to be sent back to the manufacterer.

SOURCE: toshiba A105 will not boot up even with cd and f12

its not a booting issue if you hear the music, it loaded windows. you might have a display issue, shine a light on it to see if you can see any faint images, if you can the backlights out if not it might be the display adapter on the MOBO, in either situation calling toshiba would be required for a repair, or otherwise take it into a shop, but first try a power reset,

unplug it and remove the battery, then hold the power button down for one minute, replace the battery and power cord and try to boot again. if this fails call toshiba, its definately a hardware issue.

Laptop gets stuck welcome screen when

It sounds to me like a file is corrupt and there is a number of reasons for that. If you press F8 just before it tries to boot, you will have access to a menu. Try running safe mode to see where the issue is.

To run Toshiba Recovery:
Choose the Repair Menu in the Windows boot menu (Press and hold F8 at the Toshiba SplashScreen.
Hold the Zero key during Power Up.
If that doesn't work, you may need to order a Recovery Disc from Toshiba.

When turning on the computer the first screen comes up stating Toshiba and at the bottem it says push f2 for set up or f12 for boot device selection menu but when you push a button nothing happens.

Why do you press these buttons in the first place? Did you have problems with the stability of your system so you want a different boot option?
If your laptop was experienicing random freezeups and you couldnt get it to boot at all, and nothing you do can get you past the Toshiba startup screen then your laptop may have a bad motherboard. Actually, it's more of a loose contact between the FSB controller chip and the motherboard. Take a look at this laptop motherboard repair tutorial for bad FSB chip contact, see if that may be of any help.

Hi im having trouble with getting my desktop to come up. its just showing start thats it and saying location is not availble

It sounds like you have maybe two problems.
Firstly, press start and when it shows the BIOS menu, press F2. Select default settins from the menu and save with F10.
Press start again, if it doesn't try to load after the POST, (BIOS menu) and press F8 as it is starting to boot up. Select Safe Mode and let it run until it has finished loading. Close down and it should have repaired itself. If it hasn't, and I am assuming it does get past the BIOS menu because if it doesn't there is a MotherBoard fault and it will require technical support through Toshiba.
If it doesn't load but gets past POST, as it finishes the BIOS option menu, (F2 or F12) press F8 and select recovery. Follow the prompts and that should sort your problem out.

Hope that helps.
