Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 (PSAF0U-02D009) PC Notebook ?

My laptop has frozen at the loading screen

\015 My laptop shut off yesterday around 4pm and what I turned it back on it came up with the Toshiba loading screen and the bar is half way filled but it has stopped. I unplugged the computer and let it sit to drain the battery in hopes of forcing it to restart but when I turned it on it loaded up the same non-moving loading screen.\015

I believe you are running Windows Vista. If you are, your system has suffered a crash. If you have the recovery discs, you're going to have to first attempt to fix the boot record. If this doesn't work, then you're going to have to do a destructive restore.

You'll lose all the data. If you don't have any recovery discs, contact Toshiba. If it is under warranty, they'll send you a copy of the discs. They may charge about 40 dollars.

Just make sure that you can read off the product key to them, otherwise I don't think that they can help you.
