    Standard startup choices on all commercial Windows computers. Has your Toshiba always worked this way, or is this a recent event?
    Can you start in <SAFE MODE> by depressing the <F8> key repeatedly. This may enable you to explore settings. Your system may be have turned off the <F2> and <F12> switches, so IF you need them, make changes in Safe Mode.

    To get to Safe mode, press the F8 key when Windows starts to boot. You have to do this BEFORE you see the first "Windows" screen. You can start tapping away as soon as you get by the first BIOS startup screen or the manufacturer's splash screen. Experiment and you'll get it.
    If it is not even able to that, time to buy or borrow a new hard drive to try a clean install... that will tell you whether it is on your system board or peripheral cable, or the hard drive.
