Generally a bad hard drive, but it could also be an operating system error/glitch. Do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format and install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

Toshiba laptop turns on,but windows doesn't start


If you get the Toshiba screen, the expensive bit is OK as it has finished POST.
As the laptop starts, press F8 and choose safe mode. Let it boot up and when it has run CHKDSK/F to try and repair errors.
If that does it, no problem. Give it a go and come back if it doesn't work as you will have to choose recovery.
