Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet
Remove the hard drive from the underside of the laptop. If it is a SATA drive you can plug it directly into a PC that has the relevent sata data and power connectors. From there boot the computer up and you will be able to browse the files and copy them to another location. If this is not possible. You can go to any tech store and buy a 2.5 inch enclosure for the drive, this will turn it into an external hard drive with usb plug and play capabilities.
As for the laptop it sounds like its hardware failure and might not be economical to repair.

Compaq and Hp are having issues with several models, My wife just got hers repaired free out of warranty. Go to copaqs website, look up your model and see if it is one they are offering free one time repairs on. Wife's computer was doing same thing, they replaced the motherboard. Took about 2 weeks round trip . Good luck

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.
