I had an update conflict so did a system restore to go back before the update it didn't finish the restore and it crashed and hasn't gone since. it starts up until you get to the toshiba logo screen and then it goes blank then you get the flashing promp. then it starts.

When you see that 'PXE' it simply means it's attempting to boot from the network. Why? Because apparently it is unable to boot from the hard drive ... which is not good news. :)

Is the hard drive detected (showing up) in the CMOS/BIOS Setup? If so, try booting from a Windows CD/DVD and try a repair.
