Toshiba laptop won't boot

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.

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: my toshiba satellite l455 won't start up it

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

Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F2 key during boot. It must be listed. There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Boot computer, repair or reinstall operating system.

No operating system found can't boot from usb there is no boot from usb option


Did you try pressing F8 key at boot up?

    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.

  • 2

    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.

  • 3

    Navigate your BIOS configuration screen to the "Boot" tab. It is usually just before "Exit."

  • 4

    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.

  • 5

    Press the button for "Save and Exit" in your BIOS. The correct button is usually F10.

    I'm trying to help a friend install


    After "Fast Boot" has been enabled, you cannot access the BIOS setup during power on . The machine will bypass "Press F2 to access Setup Utiltiy and F12 for Boot Menu" prompt.
    This is a bigger issue if the hard drive crashes and access to Windows is not possible OR

    Fast Boot can be enabled or disabled in the BIOS setup, or in HW Setup under Windows.
    If you have Fast Boot enabled and you want to get into the BIOS setup. Hold down the F2 key, then power on. That will get you into the BIOS setup Utility.
    You can disable the Fast Boot Option here. You will need to disable Fast Boot if you want to use the F12 / Boot menu.

    My Toshiba L640 model encountering this problem. the time i open my computer the Toshiba logo appears and the F2 to utility system and F12 for the boot if you will allow the computer to proceed without...


    That means the hard drive has failed. You'll likely need a new hard drive. Go into the utility system using F2 and see if it still sees the hard drive. If it does, and you don't hear something going "click, click, click" or "kchunk, kchunk, kchunk", there's hope. If you don't hear those noises, and can borrow a Windows disk to boot from, you might be able to correct the issue running the check disk utility.

    I would recommend you turn it over to someone that really knows what they're doing.

    Toshiba screen press f2 for set up and f12 bios management


    I guess a new software install could have caused the issue. The could be conflict between devices.

    Remove all the USB devices connected to the laptop. Remove external mouse and keyboard also if any.

    Try booting. If it still does not boot then restart system and keep pressing F8 to view the boot options. If you get the boot screen then choose Safe mode option and try booting in to the desktop. Once the desktop is available go to Start-> Accessories-> System Tools-> System Restore to restore your system to a previous date.

    If F8 does not work then probably you can do a complete reinstall of the OS by pressing F11 or Ctrl+F11. You will lose all the data in the system using this option and the system will be restored back to its factory settings. (This option works only if the laptop has manufacturer provided OS in it)

    else you need to contact Toshiba tech support for any hardware related issues

    Hope it helps !
    Good Luck !
