Question about Computers & Internet
SInce you don't indicate which Operating System you're using, I'll make a wild guess that it's Vista. If it is, starting with the computer off:
1. Press the power button an immediately start tapping the F8 key.
2. When a screen appears with some starstup options, scroll to Safe Mode using the arrow keys and press the Enter key.
3. Be patient while the computer gets to the Desktop. The display will be oversized and a little fuzzy. That's normal.
4. In Safe Mode, go to the Start Menu and navigate to System Restore. Restore the computer to an erlier time when it was working.
If you cannot get to safe mode, then you likely have a hard drive failure or motherboard or other Windows system corruption and would need to re-install Windows from a Vista disc. You will likely lose any data you had.

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
