Will it start in safe mode.Just keep tapping F8 as the computer starts.If so maybe a system restore or a last good configuration.

no it doesnt even give the option to choose safe mode.
but i will try tapping F8.

Press the tab key as it loads, this might change the toshiba screen to the post screen. It might give you a clue on why it is not booting.

If all fails you could opt for a windows repair.

If you have the original insallation disc, have you tried installing it? It should give you options for a system repair.
OR
If you have the original XP disc put it in and do not choose repair but "install windows" you will be given an option later to either re-format an perform a clean installation or install windows saving existing files and settings, try the latter option first.
