Re: cpu will not boot even in safe mode
Make sure you have'nt left a floppy disc in the drive when booting up.
If you havent press F2 or DEL on startup and enter the bios.
In advanced bios settings ensure that the HDD is set at first boot device, if not select by means of either + or - keys or up and down arrows on number pad.
Press Esc when done and save settings and exit to re boot system.

your problem could be that the hard drive is broken, perhaps with some tool to repair hard disks the problem. test starting for example hiren boot from a memory or cd and see if it recognizes the hdd, if so you can pass some repair tool
I can't think of any reason why you would want to run in safe mode except if the computer crashes your system. If you have a heat problem in safe mode it is shutting down to protect you CPU and GPU which are two things you won't want to replace. If you are over clocking you CPU that could cause this problem as the power management system is not active in Windows when you run safe mode. If your system is under warranty and you are concerned about this problem ask them to do a warranty repair. If it's not under warranty you can take it to Best buy and explain the problem and ask for a PC health check. Last I heard they were still doing those for free. At this point though I would avoid running the PC in Safe Mode
. Your notebook 2. An empty formatted diskette (720 kb or 1,44 mb) 3. A second computer (e.g. a DOS desktop PC) 4. A hex-editor (e.g. Norton DiskEdit or HexWorks)
This is what you have to do:
1. Start the desktop PC and start the hex-editor 2. Put the disk in drive A: 3. Change the first five bytes of sector 2 (boot sector is sector 1) to: 4B 45 59 00 00 4. Save it! Now you have a KEYDISK 5. Remove the disk from drive A: 6. Put the disk in the notebook drive 7. Start the notebook in Boot Mode (push the reset button) 8. Press Enter when asked for Password: 9. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter. 10. You now see the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password
The Bios password for the toshiba laptop cannot be replaced by any SW it must be brought to the authorized toshiba shop for the BIOS password reset.
