Hello everyone,

I am new to the site and have unfortunately run it a problem. Well my laptop ran out of battery, I plugged it in and computer restarts by itself. Shows the Qosmio Logo then goes to the blinking cursor. Now before it use to do this for 2 seconds and straight to the windows logo and the bar on the bottom (loading bar I believe is what you would call it). This time it was taking a little longer so i waited and nothing it just stayed like that. Now usually i would have to hold down the power button to shut it off but i just touched the power and it shut off right away. I then turned it back on and same thing. It does not give me the ability to press F12 or anything (f12 does nothing). I have run out of ideas and don't know what else to do. The laptop is a Toshiba Qosmio running Windows Vista x86. I don't know what to do. I have no recovery disk I lost it while moving. I was hoping if someone could please help me.

At this point I don't mind losing the info on the drive ( I backed it up two weeks ago). I would prefer not to lose everything, but if the only solution is to lose the info on the hard drive so be it. Just would like to have the computer work.

Thank you so much guys for any help that you may help me on.
