Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite L10 Notebook ?

Child has pressed buttons on the key board and when booting up it only goes as far as the boot up screen giving the option to select F2 to enter set up or F12 for multi boot selection but when you select either it just says please wait and goes no further

Answers :

It's doubtful that this issue was caused by someone pressing a key regardless of when they pressed it or their age ;) . This sounds more like a Hard Drive issue from a major virus. Make sure there are no "system" disks in the computer when turning on. Also, unplug all USB and other peripheral equipment from the computer prior to powering up. Some peripherals don't work and play well with others. There are small driver programs installed on all memory sticks (aka flash drives, thumb drives, etc.). These can cause boot-up problems as well. So, try unplugging everything that is not absolutely necessary and power up. That's your best bet and the easiest to try.\015\012
