Motherboard problem most likely. You should try reseating the memory and also starting without the battery. If you're feeling brave you could also unplug the cmos battery for a few minutes.

Find a local repair shop or someone on craigslist that will perform a free diagnose. Wait while it's done. Should only take 5-10 minutes to determine the problem.

Toshiba Satellite A105 problems


Sounds like a program is not loading properly. You should try to load in Safe Mode, And see if it starts properly. If it does you then can do the diagnostics to find which program is trying to load and shuts machine down. You may also try starting in step by step and catch it right away. Depending on your version of Windows you are running you may be able to restore to a previous time when your machine worked right. Good Luck and have a good day.

Toshiba A105-S101 freezes at start up!


I would first attempt to reinstall the software from the install cd. Your Toshiba support page is recomending a new BIOS upgrade. See below:

Issue


The computer models listed above may display a "Password =" prompt when the computer is turned on, even though no power-on password has been set. If this happens, there is no password that will satisfy the password request. If the computer is turned off and back on again, it is very likely that the same password prompt will appear. The computer will be unusable until this problem is fixed.

If the problem has not happened yet, you can prevent it from happening in the future by upgrading the BIOS to the newest version.

The occurrence of this problem on any particular computer is unpredictable -- it may never happen, but it could happen any time that the computer is turned on. If this problem does occur, it will be necessary to send the computer to a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider, who will fix the problem at no charge to you.



Resolution


If this problem has not yet occurred on your computer, then click the following link to download and install BIOS version 1.40. This BIOS displays a power-on password prompt only when a power-on password has actually been set via the BIOS Setup program.

You may also browse for a newer version of the computer's BIOS at pcsupport.toshiba.com.

For more help, see Support Bulletin 98081213 Obtaining downloads and support docs from the Toshiba Support website.

If the problem has already occurred on your computer, then please make arrangements with a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider to have this problem fixed at no charge. To locate a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider (ASP), please visit Toshiba's Global ASP Locator at http://pcrepair.toshiba.com

BTW, I've heard that this only happens when you boot up on battery power.

Maybe you can confirm this...
