I have a Toshiba Satellite A660 in front of me. It passes the Toshiba splash screen but won't boot into Windows. It's less than a couple of months old so if necessary will be going back to the reseller but...

Since the WARRANTY still is valid, the easiest route is to exercise the warranty.

Or, use the supplied "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs to reload Windows (this will wipe-out any data from your 'C:' disk-drive).

It might be possible to temporarily remove the disk-drive, connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in another computer, and then to copy all your files onto DVD-writable disk(s), before sending it in for warranty service.

Your drive is failing and you should back up any important data you need onto CD/DVD or an external USB device (hard drive/pen drive). The drive may keep working for a while but your system is warning you that it has detected a critical error with the drive and failure is imminent.

Toshiba media recovery satellite l300 series windows vista home premium disk doesn't work it gets stuck on a black screen with a mouse cursor

Try cleaning the disk in soap and water / dry with a microfiber cloth or cotton towel . Then try your disk. If you don't get the proper response then I suspect a corrupt data disk or a malfunctioning DVD.
