This sounds like ram memory issue, remove one stick of ram and power up, no change, remove second piece and replace the first, if this works the memory stick in your hand is defective.

unplug laptop and remove battery. Take out both memory sticks and locate on the motherboard under sticks two points marked with ***. Replace one memory stick, plug ac adapter back up and while jumping the two points at the *** (use paperclip, flathead screwdriver or other metal object to connect the points) power up computer. This, if done properly, will reset bios, removing password.

Laptop Toshiba Satellite A200 Model No. PSAF6A-02C01N fail boot


Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.

Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.

Let me know what happens.
