Question about Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5881 Notebook
It gets about 60% through the boot up then freezes. Pressing F2 (system utilities) freezes the boot. It won't get to the windows' screens.

ur OS has corrupted two reasons for that
1. due to virus, malware spyware, etc
2. Hard Disk is getting weak wants replacement
solution first try to re install the OS if u find it difficult to do so then my friend ur hard disk needs replacement
factory reset procedure
Toshiba: BEFORE TURNING ON THE LAPTOP, press and hold the 0 (zero) button on the keyboard, then turn on the computer while holding the 0 (zero) button down. When the Toshiba logo screen appears, you can release the 0 key.

Sounds like a bad piece of ram try replacing your ram. Just because you do not get a post boot beep does not mean your ram is good.

SOURCE: laptop wont boot
Windows is corrupt...reload Win OS....if possible re-install Windows in a different partition say D: or E: etc (if u have more than 1 partition) and then once done let it boot from that and let Win load....take a full backup of all of your critical data to a USB pen drive....then reload Win CD in the Cd drive, switch off and switch on PC let it boot from CD and delete all partition on HD, format the disk fully and repartition the disk and load Win in C:
pls leave a feedback

click on F2 and that will take you to the Bios setup, check that your hard drive and Ram (Memory) are both online if all is ok and no problems press F12 it might take you to a diagnostic screen prompting you to perform a diagnostic test, if so do the tests and write down any errors given, if there is not diagnostic tool you might get the options to restor factory defaults this option will reset your computer to its original state and you will lose all your data. Another option if you have the operating system's cd (windows xp, vista etc) from the bios (F2) change the boot sequence to cd (just click on Cd/DVD Rom)only and reboot, windows will ask you if you want to repair, if all your hardware is ok and you should be able to solve the problem good luck and all the best

Turn on your laptop and look at the first screen that comes up as soon as it is on. This screen will tell you "Press x key to enter setup", replacing "x" with the actual BIOS access key. It's usually "Del" or "F2" on Toshiba systems.
Press the key firmly and quickly before the screen goes away. If you do not react quickly enough, you will miss the window of opportunity to enter the BIOS. On Toshiba systems, this window of opportunity is somewhere between two to five seconds.
Navigate your BIOS configuration screen to the "Boot" tab. It is usually just before "Exit."
As the first boot device, select "USB," or "USB HDD." If you have a "USB ZIP" option, you might be able to boot from it, so select that if you have no other choice.
Press the button for "Save and Exit" in your BIOS. The correct button is usually F10.
