Hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like the graphics card inside the machine is over heating , i would check that all vents on the laptop are clear and unblocked , but if you have used this continually in this state then i doubt you will be able to repair it, as heating it up and then letting it cool down all the time will have done it no favours at all. The graphics gpu cannot be replaced so if cleaning the vents makes no significant impact then your laptop will need to be replaced

Grab a copy of :
EasyBCD is NeoSmart Technologies' multiple award-winning answer to taking control of your bootloader. EasyBCD extends and revamps the Windows Vista/Windows 7 BCD bootloader, and with EasyBCD, almost anything is possible. Setting up and configuring a dual-boot between Windows 7, Windows Vista, older versions of Windows such as XP & 2003, Linux, Ubuntu, BSD, and Mac OS X is a breeze. You just point & click and EasyBCD does the rest.
EasyBCD is geared for users of all kinds. Whether you just want to add an entry to your old XP partition or want to create a duplicate for testing purposes; if you're interested in debugging the Windows Kernel or septuple-booting your seven test operating systems, EasyBCD is the key.
  • Boot into XP/Vista/7/Ubuntu/OS X and more!
and if :

Your "BOOT" folder has been deleted, was not created, or has been corrupted; and the Vista bootloader will not show.
Solution Boot into a working copy of Windows and install/run EasyBCD.
Go to the "BCD Backup/Repair" page:


Select "Re-create/repair boot files" then "Perform Action" to begin recovery. EasyBCD will recreate (if possible) your boot files and re-configure your bootloader from scratch.
If EasyBCD fails, that means a process has locked your BOOT folder. Manually delete this folder with a Live CD, recovery console, or other method, then try Type Three again.

Since It starts OK in safe mode but not in normal bootup mode (which a lot or programs startup automatically and can be the cause of the normal startup problem). Did you install any new software before this problem happens? You may try using system restore to go back to the day before the problem started, it can be done in safe mode.

There are a lot of things that can cause this.
But the one that is in your grasp is a problem with the Memory Modules.
Open the small cover on the bottom that covers the memory.
Remove one chip leaving one chip, and rotate between the slots and the modules.
A bad ram chip will cause this problem.
Lets hope thats what it is, because otherwise it could very well be a problem with the motherboard, and that is not too cost effective to repair/replace.

This may well be a fault with your RAM, CPU or system board. Check the RAM is inserted properly, if two modules are installed try removing them one at a time and see if it helps.
Hope this helps, www.PuterCare.com

It sounds like a driver issue. Check for any updates to drivers for your laptop from the toshiba website.

if you have a restore disk, you may wish to back up any important information and use it to reinstall your operating system to factory default. Since it charges when turned off properly, it does not sound like a hardware issue.

Im not sure what exactly you have in the recovery partition ..but from what I know ..this is accessible by pressing F11 on boot ..and the info stored in it will restore the computer ..if you had vista in it before...probably will reinstall it ..so first just try to boot..and press f11 during the device displaying ..just like entering bios..and follow the instructions if it works..
another way is to install a clean operation system ...(the one that you use to have ..) by booting from cd ..(this will allow you to rearrange the partitions during install...in the moment when it sees previous OS ..and ask to choose a location for install..
after a clean install use the recovery cd that came with the laptop..
But..first try the recovery from that partition..if f11 do not work let me know and I will make some research in this matter ..

This has been a common windows issue. I'm sure that this will solve your problem. You can go to this link, http://tinyurl.com/toshibadvd, download the registry file and run it. After that, just restart your computer and it should be good to go.

If you're not sure and is worried about security since this is messing with the registry, you can just click on this microsoft link where it explains and gives you detailed instructions on how to manually edit the registry and fix the problem. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461.

This is typically the same thing, the first one is just a shortcut on how to do it. Just a reminder, EDIT THE REGISTRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

Make sure the battery has a full charge, and that it's plugged into a wall socket, then try the power button. You will get the same symptoms as a bad power switch if your battery power is very low. Other than that, the battery could be bad, or going bad. If the problem is a faulty power switch, you will have to have it replaced.

If you want the computer to boot from the CD, you need to tell the computer to boot from the CD. At start up the computer runs through each device one at a time and tries to boot from it and it will boot from the first device that has a boot log. Right now your computer is set to boot from the hard drive before the CD drive.

Always back up your computer before going into the systems bios menu.

After a backup, upon starting the computer, press F12 when the bios selection appears shortly before the operating systems starts. Once in your bios menu, go to the boot order and tell your computer to first boot from the CD then your hard drive; then your disk drive if you have one.

After you are done, you can go back into the bios menu and change it back to booting from the hard drive first.
