Question about Toshiba Satellite L10 Notebook
It's doubtful that this issue was caused by someone pressing a key regardless of when they pressed it or their age ;) . This sounds more like a Hard Drive issue from a major virus. Make sure there are no "system" disks in the computer when turning on. Also, unplug all USB and other peripheral equipment from the computer prior to powering up. Some peripherals don't work and play well with others. There are small driver programs installed on all memory sticks (aka flash drives, thumb drives, etc.). These can cause boot-up problems as well. So, try unplugging everything that is not absolutely necessary and power up. That's your best bet and the easiest to try.

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.
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.
Navigate your BIOS configuration screen to the "Boot" tab. It is usually just before "Exit."
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.
Press the button for "Save and Exit" in your BIOS. The correct button is usually F10.
