Hi. Turn the computer on and press F8 when you see the toshiba screen. Select safemode then press enter. open the System Config Utility (msconfig) by pressing Start, Run (XP), or type the word msconfig then press enter for Vista.

Disable all start up items and restart your machine... See if it starts and boots to windows.

My labtop wont load my desktop, but the screen comes on.


this might sound really silly but some laptops after a while get a glitch where they cant power down fully and go into sleep or hibernate adn i have seen it happen to people who do not allow the battery to completely drain occasionally, had a family members did this recently. Just to rule it out turn it on and shen you hear fans and see lights even with no desktop, press and hold on the power button 3-5 sec until it shuts itself down, then do a normal start when you can see no lights or hear any sounds. Good luck.

My friends computer just stopped working while she was using it. The screen froze and than she shut it down. When she tried to turn it back on all that happened was that the caps lock, the scroll, and the...


Hello,

There are a number of things that can cause this to happen. Try taking the battery out of the notebook, disconnect the AC adaptor (if in use) press the power button a few times. Re-install the battery, reconnect the AC (if needed), press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds. This is a hard reboot and should correct you issue. When the notebook powers up, make sure you remove any cd's in the cd-rom drive.

Good Luck,
