    I have the same problem and you can't reinstall Windows or access safe mode while the system is frozen before it completes post;



    Toshiba Satellite A105 that is freezing up about 3/4 of the way through the BIOS upon startup (according to the BIOS status bar). I tried the BIOS reset trick (remove battery and power plug, hold power button for 20 seconds, then plug power plug back in and start); however, the computer still freezes in the exact same spot in the BIOS. It doesn't prompt for a password or give any errors.
    If I act quickly, I can press F2 rapidly after I start the laptop and it says "Please Wait" instead of the normal "Press [F2]for SETUP" option. The BIOS screen shows the Toshiba backgroun with the Celeron M logo, but just doesn't want to get passed that.
    Other things I have tried:
    - reseated memory and restarted: same..
    - removed the wireless card and bluetooth cards and restarted without them: same..
    - removed HDD and restarted: same..
    - no sign on the case that there was any external damage... opened it up and it was clean and dry.
    I created a flash Bios disk from Toshiba's website, but can't get to that point to where it is reading the drives. What am I missing?!?! I want to turn this laptop into a frisbee. Please help!

Check the same from safemode and check for the results.
Last know Good Configuration can also be check.

If it is of no use, dear you need to reload the OS

Looking free download toshiba A105-S4074


I'm going to guess that you want the installation disks for this Toshiba. I can't help you with that as any unauthorised copies are not legal. Microsoft do not allow free copies of installation disks.

Toshiba sell the recovery disks for around about £18 UKP Call their technical support line to order them. Or you could install a vanilla copy of the operating system and download and install the drivers from

How to bypass setup password on a toshiba satellite A105-S4074


You can fix this by removing first removing all power, then remove the plastic cover above the keyboard, removing removing the two keyboard screws.
You'll need to fold the keyboard in such a way that you don't damage the cable.
You will see the wifi card just to the right. It's the only card there. It is held in place by spring clips. Remove the card from the connector.
There are two solder contact points labeled "C88". Connect the power adapter to the laptop now. Short the two contact of "C88" and press the power on button. The unit should boot to the windows screen. Once it boots, you'll have to update to the latest BIOS.

Toshiba Satellite A105-S4048 problem with AC Adapter When I turn the laptop on with the AC adapter, after checking the BIOS freezes and does not boot Windows. If I turn the laptop in only with battery boot...


There's not much you can do. The problem is definately with your motherboard. I'd recommend a bios update, but normally you can ONLY run a bios update if the battery and the ac are both plugged in.

This problem is pretty common among Toshiba's A105 and P105 models.

Besides replacing the motherboard there's not much you can do.

Sorry.

Toshiba A105-S101 freezes at start up!


I would first attempt to reinstall the software from the install cd. Your Toshiba support page is recomending a new BIOS upgrade. See below:

Freezing up


I think you need to do a power cycle. remove the battery and use tha AC adapter alone. If it boots, then thats good. U can try also booting on safe mode by pressing F8. Then re start the notebook in normal mode. If it wont works then i think u need to reinstall windows as a last resort. U need to use TOSHIBA RECOVERY DISK this time.
