(btw, I am not technologically sound and do not know how to take it apart and check wiring and such, but I am open to suggestions).
It is a Toshiba with Windows 64 bit, model no. PSK2LU-001003
The error message when I turn it on is:

PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
No bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key.
When I insert boot disk it says "windows is loading files..." and then a box comes up saying: "ERROR: F3-F100-0003, an error has occurred. Please press [OK] to turn off the computer.
