Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

I can not figure hout how to opoen in safe mode

\015 When I start my Toshiba (windows XP) it will go to the desktop and stop before everything is loaded up. When I power down and restart I can not figure out how to start in safe mode, you use to have to hold down F8 but hta seem not to work any more. F2 and F12 take me some where else and I can not find the menu when to open in safe mode is located.\015

Answers :

If you cant get into safemode by F8 then your windows is probably very corrupt. Here are a few things you can try to get windows up and runing at least temporarily:
\015\012
\015\0121. Insert windows restore disk. Let it/Make it load to the setup screen. Press 'r' to let it do a repair. This will take you into dos. You will probably have to press '1' to get to your C drive. Once you are able to run commands, type chkdsk /p ...this will do a check disk that will take about 5 minutes. If it doesn't say it found any bad sectors or files, then its time to move to step 2. If it does find bad files and has corrected them, then you might be able to boot back up to windows, at least in safe mode.
\015\012
\015\0122. Repeate steps above, but do NOT press r. Press the Esc key and continue to the 2nd repair menu. Some older versions of windows do not have the feature so you might have to skip straight to doing a full recovery. The rest is pretty much self explainitory, you select the os you want to repair, etc. This takes a long time. Possibly an hour. Plus you will need to input your serial code again. If this doesnt work, then your last choice is to do a complete restore.
It's still F8. Just push power and then hold down f8 until it beeps. The problems is the time is either too short or is set to not display the menu. You can adjust this under control panel - system - advanced - startup optios.
