Have you tried pressing space bar (maybe its in hibernation mode) ?
or try holding power button for a few seconds (10) then turn it back on.
as a last resort you could try take the battery out, disconnect it from the power adapter, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then place the battery back in and the power adapter and try powering it on?
does it shut down and then just start right back up? If it does then press and hold the power button and make sure it shuts down all the way. Then take the battery out and press and hold the power button after the battery is out for about 5 seconds. Then let it sit like 10 - 15 seconds. After that put your battery back in and turn it back on and see if this solved your problem. I think its in a loop to make it keep restarting. Let me know if this helped. Thanks, Herb Stacey
I own a Laptop Toshiba Satellite A75-S2131.
This series have a problem with the cooling flow to the processor.
The processor overheats and the laptop shuts down.To solve this particular problem you must tear down the laptop and clean up the processor heatsink (you will find it totally plugged or partially dirty).
Find in the internet the step by step instructions (with photos) for dismantling this laptop. Do not forget to apply thermal paste between processor & heatsink.
this is clearly a no boot issue. you can actually do a power cycle first. remove the battery and unplug the ac adapter. press and hold the power button on the computer for 10 secs to drain all power inside the computer. turn on the computer. if it still freezes, tried to boot to safe mode. as soon as you see the Toshiba logo on the screen, start tapping on the F8 button as quick as you can to access Windows Advanced Boot Options. then choose safe mode only. if it doesn't solve the problem then most likely, your Windows XP is already corrupted. try to do system recovery. please be reminded that you will lose all data if you run the recovery.
