Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S231 Notebook
If i press the Windows key on the keyboard a menu does not appear as if clicking on the start button.
Sorry to tell you this but the only time I have seen this it was caused by a pretty malicious piece of software.
Since you have no Start button, it makes it had to get to the registry or to do a system restore.
Press Ctrl Alt Del at the same time and see if task manager will open. If it does, click on File and then click on New Task (Run).
Now click on Browse and go to C:\windows\system32\rstrui.exe and run it. Select a restore date just before this problem occurred.
If task manager does not open then it has been disabled too and fixing it is going to get more complicated.
You should either do an online virus scan or connect this hard drive to another computer as a slave and scan it. Another computer is better because the malicious program will not be active.
