During start up does it give you any options to start it normally? Try hitting F8 during start up to see if your able to get it to boot normally. Not sure what "pach" you are talking about. BIOS shouldn't be the problem. Sounds like you have a virus of some sort.
Starting with Windows Vista there is a big leap in doing a system
restore or recovery. Windows 7 also has the same options. In case your
system is not displaying any GUI or there is crash more often , just
Press F8 when your computer starts.
Choose System Recovery which should be the first option
You will be prompted for user name password which should be an administrator account.
Next you will get 5 ways of making a restore : Startup repair, System Restore, Windows complete pc restore, Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and Command prompt
System Recovery tools in Windows Vista and Windows 7 Out
of the 5 options, Windows Complete PC restore is used when you have
backup of your pc or at least of the drive where you had installed
windows. Command prompt recovery mode is only for advanced users and
Memory Diagnostic tool is only used when windows gives notification to
you and asks you to run it. Else it is not required to run it.
There's a little slide switch on the side of the laptops body, on the right hand side on mine. Make certain that it's on the "On" position. I had the same problem, and i found out that i had turned the switch off.

You can try upgrading the BIOS: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=713738&rpn=PSA60U&modelFilter=A60-S166&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663&selModel=713738|PSA60U
I don't know that's going to do it for you.
This software will allow you to backup and restore the BIOS, just in case, as well as give you another tool to try cloning the drive itself: http://ping.windowsdream.com/
