Re: my screen wont display icons
Insert your WIN OS installation CD - But select recovery.
Attempt to rebuild windows...
This sounds like hard drive issue - sometimes a rebuild will temporarily get around this - but I would strongly recommend once running to do a surface / scan disk...

Try to open windows in safe mode. An easy way to do this is to press the F8 key after you see the Toshiba logo fade and before the Windows logo. After it opens in Safe mode, close Windows and attempt to load it again... this simple trick may solve your problem.
There's no M70 model, so I'm assuming you're talking abut a Satellite Pro M10, M15 series laptop. If the slightest movement hangs it or causes BSOD, then my guess is ... well ... I'll let you have it: the weaknesses of this models are: (1) bad memory socket (the upper socket),or (2) bad sound card socket. The one that's easiest to access is the upper memory socket - remove the installed memory from that socket, and see if your machine will still hang or blue-screen. I don't know if anyone still fixes these sockets (I do), but you can get around it by installing a larger capacity memory into the lower socket and skipping the upper socket altogether.
There are Spyware/malware resulting to this kind
of behavior. You can remove your System Disk to another system that have
antispiware up-to-date database. Kaspersky or AVG Internet Security are very
effective. Or else Im afraid you will need to format you OS
drive to eradicate virus and malwares and reinstall the OS
If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts. I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.
Remove icons from the Startup folder Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder: NOTE:Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program. 1.Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected. 2.Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs . 3.Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window. 4.To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab. 5.Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK . 6.Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop. 7.Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file. 8.Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working. If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.
