i reckon i can help you sort this Problem Out.
I,ll give it My best Shot.
The First Thing To do Is To turn off the power, and remove the battery.
Then Remove the Hard-Drive, Should Be In A Drive-Bay Underneath.

Formatting a laptop is the same as doing it on a desktop computer. If you are using the Windows installation CD then to get the laptop to boot up with the Windows CD you can change the BIOS boot startup device and make the CD the first boot device.
You will need to get into the bios, and set the CD drive to boot before the hard drive. Since your in this uncompromising loop, remove the hard drive, then start the machine. It should go to the initial Toshiba screen and you will see the prompt on what to press to get to the bios, or utility set up. Once your in the bios, find the boot order and set the CD drive over the hdd. Then put the hdd back in, the recovery or operating system disc in the CD drive, and start the machine. It should now boot from the disc. At this point you will want to do a system repair. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hdd, and install a new operating system. If the hdd will not format or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hdd has failed and will need replaced. If you need any futher aststance, just ask.

Alternatively Install a new hard-drive and re-install Windows et,c.
Or send the hard-drive to be unlocked Or data recovered.
The only other Option, is To purchase A software tools Disk from me, And you,ll Probably unlock it That way.
