Question about Toshiba Satellite 1130-S155 Notebook
This problem usually occurs due to an ungraceful shutdown, ie battery died before the laptop completed it's shutdown procedures or due to a failing hard drive.
Try booting the laptop and pressing F8 repeatedly. When the black and white screen pops up you can try booting into safemode/Command prompt. If you get in to the Comand prompt, type, CHKDSK /F then restart the computer by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del all three at once.
When it restarts it should go into disk checking mode, let it run and if it's only minor damage this should solve the problem, if that doesn't work, put your windows recovery disk into the DVD drive and boot the laptop, when it starts asking you questions try running the REPAIR install and this may solve the problem.
If neither of the above work you may need to recover the laptop to factory settings(same disks) but should backup any important files you have saved first. If you do not know how to do that already I would advise seeking a pro for at least that portion as it is easy to accidentally wipe out all of your files.
Hope this helps FixYa,
