Try this, get a boot able CD copy of RIPLINUX 6.2 nonX. Go into your Compact bios and select CDROM as the first boot device. Open cd dvd player and install 6.2 Power down and then power up to 6.2 Install GRUB and select HARD DRIVE Partition #2 from the menu and wait.
Now here is what will happen. GRUB will load and execute drive partition #2 which contains the original factory install for your Compact V5000T. Warning!!!! You will lose any customized programs that where added after you bought your computer (goes back to factory default operating system) by reformatting #1 partition. There are utilities that can retrive the contents of a formatted partition, but this is beyond the limits of this topic. Use Google to search for those utilities. They are sometimes free.

SOURCE: How to remove BIOS memory cache
Since it is a Toshiba Tecra if you are not worried about losing data on the laptop you can try turning on the laptop and start pressing the zero key. It should give you the option to restore your laptop if you haven't deleted the restore partition on the laptop.

I'm pretty sure IBM Lenovo online support has a troubleshooting page to help you with your restart problem, but if you've looked there already, try to work through this article. Also see here for info on how to disable the restart and use a stop error code to diagnose the cause. Frequently this indicates a hardware or device conflict of some kind, but can also be a symptom of malware. In the latter case, I recommend you follow these malware removal protocols.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

It sounds as though your PF keys are disabled by the BIOS settings. Try this:
Upon cold start or reboot get to the BIOS setup. You may have to press F2 or delete, or whatever key the first POST messages instruct you to use. Different BIOS manufacturers use different keys, and you have to be quick to interrupt the boot process using the correct key. If you fail to determine what key it is, reboot once again, until you see/read what key does the job.
Next, once you're into the setup screens, look for a section where you can set/deny access to the F8, F9, F10 etc keys during the boot process.
Make sure you ENABLE them, following the instructions on what keys to use to set/reset these choices. Make sure you SAVE AND EXIT.
On the next reboot, upon the disappearance of all POST messages, make sure you press the F8 key repeatedly until you see your OS boot options menu, among which you'll find Safe Mode.

As soon as the server turns on and you see a BIOS screen press the F8 key constantly. This should be you to the safe mode screen. If not then try another keyboard, or another USB slot.
