I have run into this problem with several Dell laptops and PC's. The best solution is to re-install from the discs originally included with the laptop.
Before doing this, be sure to back up any data you have. Be sure to have a flash drive, or USB hard drive handy, and try booting into safe mode (hit F8 repeatedly when you see the Toshiba logo on startup). If you can get in that way, copy over all of your documents, desktop items, favorites, downloads, etc. If you have e-mail stored, be sure to get that as well. To see the e-mail files you will have to enable the viewing of hidden files. To do that, open "computer" and click on Organize at the top left. Choose folder and search options. Select the View tab, and select Show Hidden FIles and Folders.
Once that is done, open the C: drive, click on users, select your username, and open the AppData folder. In that folder, copy either your "Windows Mail" folder (if you are using windows mail), or if you are using outlook open the microsoft folder, and then copy the Outlook folder from there.
Once you have copied all of your data, reload the notebook using the included CD - you will have to bot from CD, see your operating manual for which key to press to select the boot menu to allow you to do this, and move your data back to it's original location(s) once you have finished the installation.
**DISCLAIMER: The above instructions will re-format your Hard Drive and re-install Windows to the state it was in when you took it out of the box, all data will be lost, all programs you have added (anti-virus, ofice apps, games, image programs, printers, etc.) will be gone as well. Make sure you have CD's and CD-keys for anything you are going to want to use again, ESPECIALLY anything you may have downloaded. Proceed with these instructions at your own risk. If you are not comfortable with backing up your own data, take your PC to a qualified professional to perform this procedure***

Tips for a great answer:
The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.
During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.
This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.
The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.
You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.
This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.
Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.
Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.
Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.
Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.
Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.
Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.
Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.
Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.
Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.
Hope this helps
