Laptop frozen, stuck at Toshiba logo screen won't boot up.
Posted on 2009-05-05
One of my co-workers needs some help her computer is frozen. Here is what she said.
"My laptop said it needed to download something for windows and asked if i should restart now or later several times. when i was no longer able to say later it must have started, but its now frozen. I see the Toshiba logo and in the bottom panel it says press F2 to enter Setup or F12 to enter Multiboot Selection Menu. Neither button works, the mouse isn't visible, ctrl alt del doesnt work...only holding the power button to turn it on or off works but it keeps going back to this screen."
(Only edited to take out any foul language)
It is a Toshiba Laptop with Windows XP Professional installed.
I'm in Toronto and she is in Montreal so it's a little harder to diagnose. Was hoping someone here had some ideas.
We have tried removing the battery and putting it back in.
Please let me know if you need more info.
