Try starting it in safe mode: when booting press F8 continuously until you hear a beep. When/if it can start in safe mode go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore; and choose a date when you know your computer was working okay then press restore. When it has finished it will reboot, if it asks you what mode you want to use to start press start windows normally.

fingers crossed this will work. hope it helps

How to fix hp laptops

Step one: Turn your computer on, booting from either your Windows 7 Installation DVD or Windows 7 System Recovery Disc. Remember, you may need to change the boot order inside your BIOS to have the your DVD drive boot first.
Step two: After the installation or recovery disc loads, if prompted, select your language settings and then continue. If you are using the installation DVD, when prompted by the following screen select Repair your computer.
Step three: The computer will take a moment now to scan itself for any Windows installations, after which you will likely be given a choice to select which installation you wish to repair. Select the appropriate Windows installation from the list and then continue. If by chance a problem is detected in one of your Windows installations at this initial stage, the system may also ask you if it can try to repair the problem automatically. It is up to you if you wish to let the system try to repair itself, but otherwise just select No.
Step four: Once you have reached the System Recovery Options screen, as shown below, you will be faced with a list of choices that can aid you in repairing a damaged Windows 7 operating system. If you wish to try the Startup Repair option first, it is often successful in automatically fixing many different start up issues, but in this article we will be using the Command Prompt option to resolve our problems manually. So, click Command Prompt to continue.
Step five: Now sitting at the command prompt, enter the following command and then press enter:
The above command will scan all your disks for other operating systems compatible with Windows 7 and allow you to add them to your system's boot list. If this fails, you may need to backup the old BCD folder* and create a new one in its place with the following commands:
bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

She gets an error message when booting up:: Fail to load language file

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Go to Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.
This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but only when you initiate.

If this fails, even though this should fix it, download CCleaner (free) and clean your Windows Registry.

Windows is corrupted or the hard drive has issues. If you have a backup cd recovery disc try it now, if that fails have the hardware tested for possible replacement.

My tosshiba satellite A665-55186 wont go in to windows boot, what can i do??

Just like other computers, your Toshiba laptop may start failing to boot the operating system completely, or may fail to boot up at all. Boot problems are caused by virus infections and issues related to hardware and software. With the proper troubleshooting techniques, boot problems can be remedied to get the laptop into good working condition.

1. Perform initial hardware checks. Ensure that the laptop has enough battery life to boot up. Charge the laptop using its AC adapter and then try to boot the laptop again. If nothing happens, plug the AC adapter into another power outlet. If this does not help, check to see if external drives (flash drive, external hard drive, etc.) are connected into one of your USB ports. Unplug it from the laptop and press the laptop's power button. If the laptop powers on but fails to load the operating system, proceed to the next step.

2. Ensure that the hard disk is not disabled in the boot sequence in your BIOS. Otherwise, the laptop will fail to fully boot the operating system. Reboot the computer and press a key that will lead you to the BIOS page. Set your hard disk as your "first boot priority," or first in the "boot sequence." Note that the steps on loading the BIOS as well as navigating throughout the BIOS pages will depend on what brand of BIOS is installed in your laptop.

3. Choose boot to the "Last known good configuration" if you get an error page before the operating system boots up. If after choosing this option the computer reboots again, choose "Start Windows Normally," if this is in the list of options.

4. Consider repairing or reinstalling the operating system if the computer still fails to boot after the steps above. Repairing the operating system will retain your current data and settings. Reinstalling the operating system means reformatting or deleting all data in your computer and installing a fresh copy of the operating system.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards from fixya

One thing that you can do is going to safe mode by pressing F8 on initial boot. Once you choose safe mode you can then opt to choose system restore which will revert your system to a previous state ( a date ) that your windows booted and functioned properly. Or you can run your antivirus in safe mode and see if there are malicious viruses that is preventing your system to boot properly.

Toshiba a210: Powers up on both battery and power source. When powered on the caps lock blinks green most of the time but not always. Display does not come on at all, no blinking, flickering, or...

Just out of curiosity, you haven't got a usb device plugged in as you are booting the laptop have you?
If not, try this:

Remove battery, unplug power, hold power button for 60 seconds, turn on computer with power plug only, then shutdown, add battery and restart

If that fails to work, check that the charger indicator light is not flickering, this indicates that the power is not completing the circuit (damaged power capacitors/ fault on motherboard.

Are you using a genuine Toshiba charger, these laptops are prone to breaking down if an aftermarket one is used, a non-genuine one can damage the motherboard as well.

How many blinks does the caps lock make? Flashing caps lock is usually a sign that the Ram may be failing. You can try replacing the Ram modules to see if it boots, also, a dying hard drive will prevent booting, remove and see if that allows the laptop to power up

After that, I'd suspect the motherboard is damaged and will need replacing
