Toshiba Satellite L35 Windows XP won't boot up

When trying to start my laptop, I get an error screen indicating that Windows has an error and I am given several options to boot - Use the last known working settings, Safe mode, Safe mode with networking, or start Windows normally.  None of these options work, I either get another error screen, or an attempt to a command prompt that hangs up, and then the computer shuts down and starts the cycle over again.

I have re-seated the hard drive and the memory, and neither solved the problem.  I would like to avoid using the Toshiba Recovery disks to avoid data loss. (I backed up everything but my photos and I'd hate to lose them if it can be avoided.)

Any suggestions?

Can't get into BIOS on my Toshiba Laptop

No manufacturers password that I have ever heard of but you can remove your keyboard and disconnect the mother board (BIOS) battery. Leave it disconnected for a few minutes. When reconnected the password should be gone. A few laptops actually have a jumper to do this.

Toshiba Satellite L35 screen color turned to pink.

If you have a LCD-screen, not an old-style CRT-screen, it is the data-cable, and its connections, that are not transmitting one of the 3 "primary" colours, e.g., mix red & blue & green to get white,
but mix only two of those colours, and you could get pink,
because the mixing is an "additive" process.

If you mix NONE of the 3 primary colours, you should get BLACK.
If you see GREEN, you're seeing ONE of the primary colours.

Media drive not found my laptop is toshiba sat a45 s150. after turning it off unsuccessfully, a blue screen error was displayed. if long pressed the power button to shut it down. after opening it again,...

Most likely the boot sector is corrupt.Try to boot by starting the Computer and hitting F8, or F12 you need to get to your start windows splash screen.Then try Start Windows from Last Known Good Configuration.If that don't work try Safe Mode.If none work you will need to recreate your .boot file, or try recovery fron CD.It gets complicated explaining how to rebuild your boot sector,If you have access to internet search "how to rebuild boot sector Windows XP".There are programs you can download and then load/run to rebuild boot.This has happened to me or someone I know and it is a pain to fix.You need some knowledge of how boot loads and how to repair.Try to get someone you know to help you.The problem was caused by the shut down.I think you ment XP can't Boot.Good Luck

Unmountable boot volume is an error you get when your hard drive is failing. You will need to replace the hard drive.

Toshiba satellite laptop comes on and stays at windows xp page

If Safe Mode doesnt work then you may have to do a "repair" of your O/S. Place your Windows XP CD into the CD-Rom drive, reboot and once you see the options if you want to Install or Repair - choose Repair. This option will make repair to your O/S and for safe mode.
Once repair is complete do a complete Anti-Virus and Spyware scan of your Hard Drive. If you can boot into Safe Mode to run the ani-virus much better.
