This sounds like it might be a few different things. Hard drive going out, bad memory, virus problem. Try memtest 86+ to test the memory:
http://www.memtest.org/
there are many hard drive testing programs out there, but the best is to use the one that goes with your harddrive (probablt a toshiba).
and Malwarebytes antimalware is a very good anti virus.
Spybot is a good anti-spyware.
usualy processor failure will keep the computer from booting.
there is a complete set of hardware testing software included with Hiren's boot disk. just download it, burn it to cd. with Imgburn (it's free, google it), then boot from the disc. this should at least let you know the actual problem

Maybe there's a hidden process. Use  Process Explorer to find it . Download it from  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx , unzip it and just run it.
If it doesn't show something out of the ordinary then check the hard drive using HD Tune - the free version - from http://www.hdtune.com/

It may be coincidence but I presume you get the Bios menu as the laptop is loading asking you for either F2 or F12 if you wish to change your boot option. If not, plug your laptop into an external screen to check for a VGA processor errors.
I suspect the lamp driver ballast unit may have failed.
Feel free to get back to me with anymore data.

Speakers and mic input not working anymore


Have you done a windows update recently? It could have been caused by a updated driver that your computer doesn't really like.

Or is your output device set to digital instead to analog?

Problem with Toshiba Laptop A215-S7437


I bought a Toshiba 215 on Jan. 11th. After about 2 weeks of having it, it started doing the same exact thing. I took it back on Feb. 8th to Best Buy. The Geek Squad had it for a few days and said my optical drive was bad and that I could replace it because it had been less than 30 days. I've had my laptop now for 4 days and the thing just shut off AGAIN!!!! I seriously think this is definately a Toshiba Laptop problem as I've been reading tonight and have found many people with this same problem!
