    When I was trying to log on to windows the computer had a small light on just below the F numbers. I would not let me use the numbers from 7 -9. I went into setup and installed password for supervisor. It still would not let me logon. I shut the computer down and when I turned it back on it let me put my password but now I cant use the mouse or touchpad.

Dear sir

As it happens I still need some clarification what you were doing just before this incident happened but i will provide you a solution which might help you


I am assuming that the operating system is XP/VISTA and that you might have installed a new device or new software on the system (mind you this could also mean that you were browsing a site and you got an ActiveX control installed which might be causing the issue!)


1. Boot the computer
2. Just after the TOSHIBA logo comes up Press F8 and keep holding it until you get into a menu which lets you choose to boot up the operating system in SAFE MODE
3. Go in the Add / Remove programs and uninstall the offending program or hardware device which might have caused the issue.

SOLUTION 2: (Active X control or some other Malware which might have installed unknowingly)
1. Still in safe mode Use adaware or some other spyware removal tool which you might have installed (if in XP). Vista makes good use of Windows Defender. Whichever the case if you have windows vista ... go in control panel find windows defender and make a full system scan for potentially malicious software and remove what might be causing the issue. After spyware removal.

2. Go to your virus killer and perform a full system scan for any viruses and do the same. If you don't have these installed ... get hold of another computer with internet connection.

3. IF YOU DONT HAVE Antivirus and antispyware: Get hold of AVG Free edition and LAVASOFT ADAWARE PERSONAL EDITION. BOTH are free and very good. install them and repeat the above 2 steps.

SOLUTION 3: Still cannot solve the problem?
1. Go to the other computer get hold of tuneup utilities
2. Reboot in safe mode as explained above
3. install tuenup utilities (trial will still work fine)
4. Go to >> Registry Cleaner >> Clean all and let it do the rest just follow the onscreen instructions and it should give a good clean to the system.
5 Reboot and Try to see if the system works.

Solution 4: If STILL YOU CANNOT See any Improvements
1. Go again in safe mode as explained above and go to tuneup utilities again.
2. Choose Startup programs and UNTICK ALL the starting programs which you have on the system as it is clear that there must be something which is not allowing the system to start up properly.
3. Now ONCE you get the system BOOTING NOT in SAFE MODE go again in tuneup utilities and start adding the startup programs one by one until you spot the offending program! TADA. Now you know what you have to do in this case. Go to step 1 of this solution and choose and untick ONLY THAT PROGRAM which is causing the issue. Then uninstall it in normal mode.

Solution 5: The SAD one

1. Go to safe mode as explained above. Backup all your data which you might need to keep
2. Get some technician and reformat the system. Install the necassary drivers. Office / Outlook / antivirus / antispyware or in the case you got quick recovery REFER to your MANUAL and perform full system recovery. This is typically by pressing ALT+F10. BUT BEWARE THIS will MAKE you LOSE ALL YOUR DATA SO BACKUP FIRST the documents as explained in thsi solution. REFER to MANUAL of LAPTOP to see if you have this system recovery feature. If laptop is quite new (2 years or so) you should have it.

I hope that this FIXYA was of help as i did not have enough details.

Yes! disable hybernation, this causes all kinds of problems from window file corruption to complete shutdown of your system, "worst idea that microsoft came up with" once you do that the system will start to run better, and when not in use shut yor windows down.

The computer starts but, when you press a key, nothing happens.

You are probably in Standby mode and have a software or

resource conflict. When this happens, turning the power on

returns you to the problem instead of restarting the system.

To clear the condition, press Ctrl, Alt, and Del simultaneously

then select Shutdown, then Restart to restart the computer.

Toshiba Satellite bypasses bios and boots straight into windows please help. Pressing F2 or trying to boot into safemode does not help.

sometimes thewindow of time you have to hit the f2 key is very short. if you can't open the bios by tapping on the f2 button before it says "starting windows", try removing one the the memory sticks and restart with just one installed . The computer should see the change and prompt you into the bios.
