Question about Toshiba Satellite L35-S2366 Notebook
When I power on my laptop, it stops at the first screen that allows you to press F2 for setup, or F12 for Multiboot. If I press F2 before it gets to that screen, it replies with ''entering setup'', but hangs up. If I press F12 before it gets to that screen, it replies ''entering multiboot selection'', and hangs up. Any way you try it, it will not get past the first screen. I even removed the HD and got the same results, so I think it is before that step in the POST. ANY advice is welcomed. P.S. Ignore the information in the "What product is it about" field, the correct information is in the "Summarize the problem" field. My computer wasn't in your listing. Thank you ...
Your problem sounds hardware related which boils down to really only 3 things, CPU, Memory, or motherboard.
If you have more then one RAM chip installed, try removing both and booting the laptop with only 1 inserted individually, if it works fine with one chip but not the other then thats your problem. Its statistically inprobable that both chips would be bad so if it behaves the same way with both chips the problem is likely bad CPU, bad Mobo, or possibly a corrupted BIOS.

1. Remove all USB devices such as printers, mp3 players etc etc.
2. Remove the power-cable and the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
4. Put the power-cable back in but not the battery and none the USB devices.
5. Turn the computer on
Let me know how you get on.
