Re: won't boot up

I'm having the same problem.. Toshiba Satellite® M115-S1061 will boot up and just freezes at the Toshiba startup screen with the option to push f2 or f12.. but will not go into system utilities or boot menu. After BIOS shadowed and Video Shadowed..nothing happens.

Toshiba satellite M45-S169 won't boot ubuntu from DVD

Your really pushing the lower minimum requirement limits if you're trying to use Ubuntu 11 or Ubuntu 12. Especially with your on-board graphics chip which borrows system ram.

Try Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS (Lucid Lynx) instead.

Go Here and download the 1st link on the list under Desktop CD:


Here is a direct link to the ISO file you need to download and then burn to a CD:

If you don't have Software for burning iso's to CD's then download and install this totally FREE CD Burning program:

No operating system found can't boot from usb there is no boot from usb option

Did you try pressing F8 key at boot up?

    Turn on your laptop and look at the first screen that comes up as soon as it is on. This screen will tell you "Press x key to enter setup", replacing "x" with the actual BIOS access key. It's usually "Del" or "F2" on Toshiba systems.

  • 2

    Press the key firmly and quickly before the screen goes away. If you do not react quickly enough, you will miss the window of opportunity to enter the BIOS. On Toshiba systems, this window of opportunity is somewhere between two to five seconds.

  • 3

    Navigate your BIOS configuration screen to the "Boot" tab. It is usually just before "Exit."

  • 4

    As the first boot device, select "USB," or "USB HDD." If you have a "USB ZIP" option, you might be able to boot from it, so select that if you have no other choice.

  • 5

    Press the button for "Save and Exit" in your BIOS. The correct button is usually F10.

    The laptop stays on for few minutes and then it turns itself off but before it does that, it shows a large blue scree and some large white text, the text flicks a little but fast to the point where I can...

    First of all Turn of your laptop.
    Now this time when you turn on your laptop start tapping F8 Key on you keyboard when you Toshiba logo. Tap F8 key for at least 5-6 times.
    You will get a Windows Advance Option Menu. You will see lot of options over their written in white text. Your mouse will not work on this screen. Use UP and DOWN arrow keys on you keyboard and highlight Last known good configuration. Once highlighted press enter on it. See if you computer boots. If it boots try doing a restore.
    If it doesn't boot.
    Turn off your computer and then turn on your computer. On Toshiba Logo screen tap F8 key once again and go to windows advanced option menu screen once again and this time hightlight Disable automatic restart on system failure. Now when you see Blue screen coming up on your computer once again your computer won't restart. Now you can write down the information to trace out the blue screen that is occurring on your computer. Write down the Error code which will be in form of STOP 0x000000XX, you find this error code somewhere at the bottom of the blue screen.
    Once you get the reply here, we will see what we can do.

    The computer froze up; I attempted to restart it but it got no further than the Windows logo. I then took the battery pack out and put it back in. Then a screen came up that said that Windows had failed to...

    No, it is not hopelessly broken. I would suggest this:
    When you start it, get into safe mode. Do this by tapping on the F8 key soon after you turn it on. When you see the white menu on a black screen, choose safe mode and let it start. Once it starts, you can do the troubleshooting. In your case, I would suggest doing a system restore back a few days when you know it was working.
    That should do it.

    Nb 205 blank screen

    Is your screen blank when you are trying to turn it on? Do the fans run and such but nothing shows up? If not then I don't know.. but if it is put you laptop in the freezer for an hour. Mine had that problem, but you won't be able to turn it off... ever again... because then it won't start up again. I would suggest to check this out as well if it is that problem.
