Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S163 Notebook

1 Answer

System will not start

I press the start button and it barely shows the Toshiba logo before shutting off. I try to press the f2 or f12 to get to the setup screen but I haven't been able to get there before it shuts down again.

Try tapping F8 steadily while it boots up, and see if you can enter Last know good configuration or safe mode with networking and get it to start windows that way.
Here's a general startup diagnosis article.
If you're using vista, see this article as well.
If not, write back with your OS and any error messages that flash by on the screen before shut down...and mention any software or hardware changes you recently made to your system...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Toshiba boot screen won't appear when turned on


It will help if you mention the Toshiba model so we can ascertain which BIOS is running. But in general, take the USB out of the slot, and then when the machine starts up, press F2 when you see the prompt.
Alternatively if you do not see the prompt screen, press the ESC key for 3 seconds immediatley as you start the machine and then F1- that should present you with the Setup screen

Toshiba portege 2000 windows xp invalid system disk.


When booting, try going to the Boot Menu by pressing F12 when you see the Toshiba logo so you can select your hard drive as your boot device. After doing so, if you still get an "Invalid System Disc" error, then your hard drive may be shot.

How can i go to bios setup


Straight from the Dell website:
  1. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  2. When "F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu" appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press .

If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.


I hope this answers your question!
