Question about Computers & Internet
More than likely your hard drive (the device that saves all the information on the computer) is bad, or for some reason the computer isn't looking to boot from the hard drive. Remove all removable media from your computer, such as flash drives or cd's and try to boot again.
As I doubt the latter is the case, you will probably want to see if you still have an active service plan / warranty on your laptop. If you do, take it back to where you bought it or contact Toshiba for additional free support. If you do not, then you will either want to take it to your local repair store or if you have some computer knowledge you can probably attempt to run some diagnostics yourself. For example Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test is a very good hard-drive diagnostic utility.
Speaking from experience if you don't have any protection, this repair can cost upwards of $300-$400. If you can do it yourself you might be looking at the cost of the hard drive and you will likely need to order the Recovery Discs (windows installation discs) from Toshiba.
