If you know some one with a xp disk you can use it as a tool to boot up. Once it is booted up it will write a log file and it should work

Factory reset toshiba A105-S4384

Put Recovery Disk 1 in the CD/DVD drive, then power off your computer, unplug everything from the unit including the AC, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and then AC, power on, at the Toshiba logo screen press 'F2' to enter the BIOS Setup, in setup press 'F9' to load setup defaults, press 'F10' to save and exit, now at the Toshiba logo screen press 'F12' to enter 'Boot Sequence', with the up and down arrow keys to select 'Optical Disk Drive' or 'DVD/CD Drive', you will then see 'Press any key to boot from CD/DVD drive...' with the dots counting down, press any key before the count down finishes. Assuming you get back to the Toshiba Recovery Utility menu, select the 'factory default' choice, and return your unit to its out-of-the-box state.

I restarted my Toshiba satellite a305 and now it won't boot up or go into safe mode. It comes to the start up screen that says press f2 for setup f12 for boot manager. It will let me go into setup and boot...

If it won't let you go to safe mode,then there's something that the BIOS(setup) or Boot Manager needs before starting the operating system(Windows Vista). You should have a Toshiba Recovery Disk which will fix this . The disk will not touch any of your current files and data,so don't worry about that.

Hello, the problem with my mini toshiba nb200 is that when I on it, it shows the initial screen which says ; TOSHIBA Leading Innovation >>> Press [F2] for ...

If you are getting the Toshiba Select F2 or F12 screen the mother board has finished with POST.

Toshiba laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive.
If it still refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove the hard drive.
Power the unit up without the hard drive and it should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work, you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre. will help you out.
If it does work at one of the options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first and test, then the Hard Drive.
Hope this fixes your problem.
